Other Family Ministry Programming


Faith development begins immediately and we celebrate the joy of infants in our congregation through their cries and squeals in worship as well as the care we give each infant and toddler in our nursery ministry.

Godly Play

Godly Play is a unique worship experience designed for children. Immersive Bible storytelling produces a sense of wonder as your child experiences God in a holy unique and powerful way. 


 As we engage in Grow Kids curriculum with our preschool and elementary age children it is our heart that through worship & interactive small groups our children would embrace the truth to LOVE GOD.


Our programming engages 6th-12th grade age students in age appropriate small groups that introduces a concept from Grow Teen curriculum.
