Children’s & Family Ministry

We offer a variety of programs and opportunities to teach children about God’s love for them and increase their knowledge and understanding of the Bible. We are committed to equipping parents with the support and resources to help them to nurture their children’s faith at home.

Though in-person classes are currently suspended as we do our part to help keep our members and our community safe, many classes are meeting via video-conferencing. Learn about our Sunday morning Church School for children. Please contact Marietta Wynands, Director of Christian Education, for more information.
