God LOVES kids and so do we!  It is an honor to serve you and your children as we partner together in their spiritual growth! We want every child to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ; know God, not just with their head, but with a heart knowledge that moves them to action – to love God, and to love and serve others.

Sunday Worship

We celebrate inter-generational worship and intentionally seek to engage children in kindergarten through 5th grade in worship.  There are regularly scheduled children’s sermons, baptisms and parent child dedication services. To help young children engage, we offer worship bags filled with activities to help your children focus during the worship services. These bags are located at the entrances to the sanctuary.


Worship Care

(REGATHERING SOON) 9:00 am & 11:00 am | Infants to Four Years Old/Preschool Children: Infants to four-year old’s will receive excellent care in their age-specific classrooms during worship. We provide a caring environment specifically tailored to the age of your children and we staff our nursery rooms with caring professionals and dedicated volunteers who have been screened rigorously. Classrooms are on the preschool hall located directly behind the sanctuary; our door greeters can direct you to this area where you will be met by a childcare host.

Volunteer for Worship Care
