Preschool & Children


Preschool & Children's Sunday School is offered at 9:30am. 

Children are encouraged and welcomed to attend the Worship Service. Brother Jeff also has a time when he invites the children to the altar for “The Mystery Box” for a fun time as he tells a brief ‘kids’ message derived from an object brought by one of the children.

We do offer childcare, Extended Teaching Care, during the Worship Service for babies through three-year-old classrooms. Children are cared for by committed, and loving congregation members who volunteer on a rotating basis. All volunteers are pre-screened before serving in ETC.

Are you ready for an up close and personal encounter with Jesus? The adventure of a lifetime awaits!
