Sunday Programming

We have classes for all ages and look forward to serving you and your children!  Sunday School classes are offered for all ages at 9:00  a.m. on Sunday mornings. Infants through 3’s remain in their classrooms. In the worship service, young children (4’s-5th grade) sit with their parents and families and then go to Children’s Church during the sermon portion of our 10:30 a.m. service.

All of our volunteers have  been background checked and trained to care for your children.  If you are a new volunteer here is the form.  Please contact our Children’s Ministries coordinator, Jami Hinderks, to volunteer or with any other questions about our ministry to kids!
