Starts Friday, July 12 and meets every Friday through August 9 from 11:30 AM - 1 PM. 

More information coming soon so, please, check back often.


KIDS' HOUR meets weekly on Sundays, 8:45-9:45 AM

Babies-2 years old: The InN [Infant Nursery] is open during Kids' Hour and the babies receive a Bible story. Your baby's care continues in the same room, after Kids' Hour, allowing parents the opportunity of fellowship and church without a tearful transition.

2-5 year olds [Pre-K] hear a Bible Truth from the New Testament, as well as singing and enjoying play time. Doors open at 8:40 AM. After Kid's Hour the children are moved directly to the Childcare rooms so that parents can pick up their kids after the church service.

K-6th grade meet for snacks, games, friendship, and big Truths from the Westminster Shorter Catechism. The kids are learning from "Westminster Shorter Catechism" by Caroline Weerstra + Thomas Trouwborst and "Training Hearts Teaching Minds" by Starr Meade.


KIDS' CLUB meets weekly on Wednesdays in Room 1600, 6:30-8 PM.

[check calendar here]

K-6th graders are welcome for a time of games, worship, and learning from "Westminster Shorter Catechism" (discovering different questions from those shared on Sunday).
