Children's Ministries


CHILDRENS WORSHIIP is for children ages 2 - 5 years old. The children are excused from the morning worship service when announced and assemble in the Fellowship Room downstairs. Parents should meet their children in this room immediately after the morning service.

Sunday School classes for our young people grades Kindergarten-12 meet on Sunday mornings from September through April at 9 a.m. training our children in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

GEMS:   Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior  We welcome all girls from 2nd through 8th grade. Our focus is to help girls and their families have a saving and dynamic relationship with their Savior, Jesus Christ. We learn about the Lord and we have a great time doing it!

GEMS meetings typically consist of a worship time followed by either a Bible lesson, badge work and/or a craft. We will usually have some fellowship time and a snack. All girls are invited regardless of church affiliation.

  • For girls grades 4 - 8 meets every Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. from October through April. This ministry is to bring girls into a living relationship with Jesus Christ. 
  • For girls in grades 2-3 Awareness GEMS meet every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. October through April. This ministry is geared for the younger girl to bring her into a living relationship with Jesus.
