Children's Ministry


Mission
To ensure each child is cared for and loved as Christ loves.

In our Children’s ministry, we strive to meet children with safe, engaging, and age-appropriate ways to get to know God through Bible stories, serving neighbors, and relationships with leaders who are walking their own paths with Christ. All programs and activities are open to the community.

We follow a Keeping Ministry Safe policy standard.   All of our teachers, leaders, and volunteers have background checks and training to ensure they follow safe sanctuary practices.  Safe Sanctuary...

If you love the wonders of a beautiful pipe organ and a Chancel choir, then 10:30 a.m. is your hour. Sunday School begins at 9:30 a.m for ALL ages (click here to find out more about our Sunday Schools).  


​Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month in both worship services.  In the United Methodist Church, the Lord's Table is open to all.  Gluten-free wafers are available upon request.
