NURSERY

There is a nursery available during our Sunday morning meetings for 0 to 2 year olds. The children usually have lots of time to play, as well as hearing Bible stories and doing some craft activities.

 

KID'S CHURCH

Our children are an important part of the church and we are honored to equip and empower the future generations, inspiring them toward a relationship with Jesus and an understanding of who he calls us to be in the world around us.

 

Kids Church is split into 2 groups, ages 3 years (potty-trained) through Kindergarten and 1st grade through 6th grade. In these groups they learn about Jesus in a fast, fun and energetic way. Each Sunday morning our children are involved in:

 

  • Child friendly Bible teaching 
  • A variety of drama, object lessons and crafts
  • Games and activities to engage learning in a way that is fun

 

We also highlight times of worship and prayer so that children can experience the love of God and enjoy His presence.
