K-5 Ministry

Our goal is to help children develop a sustainable faith and personal resilience that will guide and them as they grow, mature, and move out into the world. Our relational ministry provides programs and activities for children to encounter God’s unconditional love and grace, while gaining awareness of our responsibility to care for one another.

We offer multiple opportunities for children and families to connect and grow spiritually, develop a strong sense of community with one another, and become vital members of our church and the world. By providing a wide range of church-sponsored events and involvement throughout the week, we are able to provide touch-points for children and families to connect with God, the church and others beyond Sunday mornings.
