Our Early Childhood Ministry includes children birth-preK. There are 3 Basic Truths* we want each young child to know.

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever

We believe that giving each child a foundation of faith is critical even at a very young age.

Our Elementary Children's Ministry has 3 Basic Truths* that are modeled after Jesus' example in Luke 2:52. 


  • I need to make the wise choice
  • I can trust God no matter what
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated

We teach these truths by focusing on one main idea each month, weaving scripture through the entire ministry time, and by being a loving part of each child's life.
