Children's and Family Ministry:

Engaging kids where they are and supporting families as they seek to know Jesus more

We believe that God has called us, in partnership with our families, to help our children:

-  KNOW the Word of God deeply and the Lord Jesus personally

-  GROW to be like Jesus together and serve alongside each other

-  GO make Him KNOWN in their homes, school and community
