Children's Ministry

We want to share God’s unconditional love with children and we do that by loving kids unconditionally. Our goal is to team up with parents so that together we can have a greater influence in the lives of children. Parents are the greatest influence in a child’s life. We want the opportunity to work alongside you to help your child grow in “wisdom and stature and favor with God and man.”  Luke 2:52
