Children's Ministry

ChildrenChildren's Ministry for children ages 3-12, will be held weekly during the 10:00am Sunday Service.  During this time, we will study the weekly lesson through discussion, dramatic play, and craft making.  The curriculum will be a mix of Liturgy of the Word and the catechesis of the Good Shepherd/Godly Play programs.  This is a time for children to learn about Jesus and have some fun for a 45 minute period while their parents/guardians are in the 10:00am Family Service.  The children will then return to their family in the church, for the announcements and the remainder of the service.
