It is our desire to provide support
and encouragement to parents in their child's spiritual development.

We see ourselves in partnership with parents as they seek to raise Godly children.
Our goals is to lead children to a personal relationship with Jesus and to help children understand and apply Biblical truth.

During the Sunday morning Service of Worship we offer age appropriate ministry for children age birth through 5th grade.

 as well as how children can serve in missions

The desire and purpose of this group is to minister to middle school and high school students alike. Youth Group is a place where we learn to know and follow Jesus daily.

We desire this to be a place to know Christ and become a disciple of Him.

Life Groups are informal gatherings of people who are interested in helping each other follow Jesus through the day-to-day experiences of our lives.

Each Life Group is a safe place to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and to grow in our relationships with each other.

Groups typically spend time building relationships, studying together (based on the previous Sunday's sermon), and in prayer.  Study guides for the sermon based study can be found online on the Sermons page.

Each September we head to the mountains for our Fall Retreat. It is a great opportunity to escape together into the woods for some recreation, fellowship and downtown centered in a practical exploration of God's Word.

Throughout the year there are other opportunities for families just to hang out together. Everyone is welcome to join us for these opportunities. Please check the Church calendar or contact the Church Office for what's coming up.
