What do I do with my kids?

For children ages birth - 3 years: , there is a nursery available during SundaySchool and during all Sunday worship services.

For children ages 4 - 5: , there are Sunday School classes for these ages, and a children’s church available during the Sunday morning worship service. On Sunday evenings, children above nursery age accompany their parents to the worship service.

Wednesday Evenings:  6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings we have Bible drills for all children 1st-5th grade.

Is worship contemporary or traditional?

In our worship services we seek to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ in a variety of music styles including, traditional hymns, gospel songs, praise and worship, and some contemporary music. In our church, we don't seek a certain musical style, but rather what pleases the Lord, and what ministers to Him.
