Parents Night Out: Friend of God

As the New Year starts and we remember those “old acquaintances” as we sang Auld Lang Syne, we remember our oldest acquaintance, Jesus. Really, though, it is wonderful to say Jesus is our friend. As we start the New Year in Kids Ministry we prepare for our first event of the year, Parents Night Out, “Friend of God,” on Friday February 17. Volunteer sign-ups are open now. Go to to register. Friends, come join us as we show these kids the best friend they could ever have.


Kids Worship Services

Our kids’ worship service (The Rock) meets the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. Children hear the Word of God on their level through teaching, worship, crafts, and games. They also learn how to apply the Word of God in their daily lives and what following Jesus looks like as a child.
