Our K-5 discipleship centered children's ministry teaches children to seek God and his kingdom through Jesus Christ. Children are taking an adventure through the Bible in Genesis and Matthew this quarter. Students get a chronological picture of God's relationship with humanity from beginning to end, as they experience age-appropriate, hands-on lessons that include thematic worship, scripture memorization and bible teaching. The curriculum spends time in both the Old and New Testaments, building precept upon precept. The children are dismissed after the worship time on Sunday mornings to participate.
