  • IGNITE

    It is the goal of the children's ministry to ignite a love of Christ in every child. Our mission is to teach the kids to "Know, See and Feel God through knowledge, character and conduct." We would like for each and every child to experience the unconditional love Christ has for them. We believe this is experienced through loving children, helping them grow in their faith through Biblical teaching, experiencing the fun and excitement of living for Christ, and showing them practical ways to grow spiritually. We want every child to learn how important they are to the family of God, and that even at their age they can make a difference. This is accomplished through many opportunities to serve weekly as well as participate in varied ministry projects. We want children and their families to know that Christ has died and was raised for them, and be able to understand and know the grace of becoming a new creation in Christ.


    Our Vision: Loving God, Loving His Family, Serving Christ (Love in Action)
