Youth

We offer several different programs and classes for the purpose of helping our young people grow in Christ.  It is our philosophy of ministry that, biblically, parents are to be the primary educators to bring up a child in the way they should go, but we desire to be of assistance to those parents.  All of our classes use Bible based and Christ centered lessons to keep the focus where it should be.

Kids Own WorshipIs a children’s church service for kids in grades 1 – 5.  The kids worship with their parents in the adult service and leave for Kids Own Worship right after communion & offering time.  Kids learn Bible truths through lessons, skits, puppets, and videos.  We have a mission offering to support our World Vision Friend, Mohan Vishal in India.
