Parenting is tough. We want to help!
Raising children is a tough task. There are so many influences, so many demands and only so much time and energy. That’s why we want to partner with you as you work toward leading your child on that critical journey from childhood to a healthy, happy, and God-honoring adult life.
We offer a number of ongoing children’s ministries, as well as special programs through the year, to give children a clearer understanding of God and His good plan for their lives, as well as providing a safe and fun place for them to be with friends.
We hope you will allow us to be a helpful partner in your sometimes difficult but incredibly important job of parenting. Let’s join forces to provide the guidance children need to experience God’s good, healthy, fulfilling and joyful plan for their lives.
