Children's programs are offered during both weekend services.  In addition, we offer many specialized programs to help children develop and use their talent, as well as understand how much God loves them!  

Throughout the year, there are activities tailored just for children including Upward Basketball & Cheerleading, Vacation Bible School, and Kids on a Mission.  Our goal is to make learning about Jesus fun and to do so in a biblically-sound and engaging way.
