Sunday Children’s Church
This is where we present the Gospel to children on their level in a church service atmosphere with praise and worship, teaching, ministry time, lessons, and games. This is held every Sunday during the 11:00 AM service. We do not meet on 5th Sundays, for this is time for the family to enjoy church together.
- Power Ark is for ages 4 years through Kindergarten and meet in the Preschool area.
- Power House is for children 1st through 6th grade and meet in the Children’s building.
Kid's Quest & Breakout:
These are our midweek discipleship programs. They take place on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00pm. Both Breakout and Kid’s Quest are designed to help children build relationships with other children and their leaders. The programs begin in September and conclude in March.
