When your children arrive at the Children's Center, they will be greeted by one of our Children's Ministries volunteers. These leaders have completed an orientation and training program, have been carefully screened, and are committed to the safety of your child. A computerized process makes it quick, simple, and safe to check your children in and out of the classrooms. We invite your children to become a part of this growing and exciting ministry. Watch God do amazing things in their lives as they learn more about Him! We can't wait to meet your children and help them feel right at home in our children's community. Elementary and preschool services meet on Saturdays at 6:00 PM, on Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 AM and on Wednesdays at 7 PM in the Children's Center.
