let the children know jesus

OUR MISSION is for all people, including children, is to say “yes” to Jesus with their whole lives. To that end, we strive to be a warm and welcoming place where children begin to learn, experience and share the depth of Jesus’ love. 

SCRIPTURE: We also strive to make sure that children learn not only the stories of the Bible, but how they connect with the overarching story of the Bible: a story of God’s love and redemption through Jesus Christ. To learn more about our preschool curriculum and our elementary curriculum, see below.

sacraments class (3rd – 5th grade)

We are often asked “When can my child take communion?” This question usually comes up as your child begins to participate in the worship service.  To equip parents in making this decision we offer classes for 3rd – 5th graders and their parents.  Click communion letter  for more information.

fifth grade ambassadors

An exciting opportunity for 5th graders to be a “5th Grade Ambassador”!  God provides people of all ages with spiritual gifts to enrich their lives and equip them for growth in faith and service to God and others.  Our preteens are no exception, they are leaders, servers, teachers, encouragers, givers and they are compassionate.  The goal of the 5th Grade Ambassador program is to help preteens understand that serving God is something that each of us can do, and that God has given us special abilities to do just that.

share your colors

Crayon Collection Boxes are located on the First Floor (preschool hall) and Third Floor of Building A.  We will be collecting crayons all year long!

The Crayon Initiative organizes crayon collections that take unwanted crayons, re-manufactures them, and provides them to hospitals that are caring for children.

The wax from crayons is not biodegradable and will never break down, leaving a waxy sludge in our landfills for centuries to come. The Crayon Initiative supports environmental efforts by diverting crayons from the landfills. Annually, over 500,000 pounds of broken crayons are discarded in landfills throughout the country.
