Pastor David Wickins brings a “kid centered” message during the 9:3BelieveKids0 a.m. Worship Service. Each Sunday, those up to third grade are excused after the Children’s Moment during worship to go to Kids Worship where they have time to talk about the message of the morning, share songs, and celebrate each other.  From Kid’s Worship they will go to their respective Sunday School class.

Beginning in January the curriculum for Sunday School classes will include the BELIEVE Study geared specifically for children and youth.

Family centered times of Faith, Family, and Fun are scheduled at various times during the year.  A light dinner is served and age appropriate, faith building activities shared.

Vacation Bible School, sledding parties, and picnics are also part of the opportunities for children and youth.
