Kids Worship Services

Our kids’ worship service (The Rock) meets the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month, except April. April Rock services will be the 3rd and 5th Sundays. 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.
