Children’s Ministry
Our children’s ministry team offers a double gift to our congregation. When they serve in the nursery, toddler, or elementary rooms they gift our children with a loving and safe first experience of church life and their parents with the opportunity to participate fully in our church knowing their children are safe and happy. We encourage our volunteers to commit to loving and ministering to our precious little ones during a Sunday or Wednesday service on a rotating monthly schedule. A background check is a prerequisite to serve in this ministry. Pastor Jennifer is the Ministry Director so if you are interested in this ministry be sure to talk to her to see how you can get started.
