Each week our children age 2 -grade 5 have the opportunity to hear the same scriptures as the congregation does in our children’s ministries, which meet during the worship service. Children begin in worship with their families, are welcomed by the pastors, and then are led to Spark* and Club 345. They return in time to receive communion with their families.
We offer weekly devotional resources based on the FAITH 5 to encourage all members to continue to listen to and reflect on God’s Word together through the week.
