Children's Ministries

It is our desire that children would experience a sense of belonging to the family of God, and know they are deeply loved by God and this community.  We want to help every child find their identity in being a child of God, knowing they are the individuals, uniquely made by God, with special gifs, personalities and potential.  We believe children can receive God's grace and also have a special part in giving God's grace, joining the redemptive work of God on this earth and adding their voice to the world.  

Sabbath School

Each Sabbath morning, Sabbath schools for each age group welcome children to an hour of active learning geared to their stage of faith development. These classes provide faith-shaping experiences for newborns through adolescents.


Children's Sabbath Schools

Beginners: birth–2 years old

Kindergarten: 3–5 years old

Primary: 6–9 years old (grades 1–4)

Juniors: 10–11 years old (grade 5–6)

Earliteen: 12–13 years old (grades 7–8)

Youth: grades 9–12

Infants and toddlers experience God’s love through relationships with staff & friends, prayer, group time activities, and Bible Stories. We provide a safe, loving, and Christ-centered environment where your child will explore & learn about God’s Love and God’s World.

Kindergarter K-4:  Your kids will learn about God and meet new friends in a fun environment that includes interactive teaching, prayer, games, crafts and a Bible message. We provide a safe, loving, and Christ-centered place where your child will learn about God’s Word and His love.

Junior High- 5th-8th:  Through worship, prayer, Bible stories, outreach and small group activities, junior high students explore what it means to know God and live for Him everyday. It is our desire that each student would accept God’s great gift of salvation, and know & apply His Word, allowing God to transform them, so that their attitudes and actions increasingly grow to reflect God’s character.

Volunteer Information:  If you would like to partner with us in ministering to the children, please call or email and we’ll get you a volunteer application. There are many ways to be involved!
