Welcome children & families

Welcome, we are so glad you are interested in exploring our ministry with children and families.  Whether you are new to town and looking for a church home or just curious about what we do, we have tried to anticipate your questions.  After exploring the questions and answers section at the bottom of this page, if you still have questions, please contact Kristen Koger.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION: Breakfast in Bethlehem

On Sunday morning, December 24th, our children will have a special event during the Sunday School hour. Children who are 4 and up will gather in the grade school division (second floor of the Education building) for a mini-Christmas VBS. We will divide into groups, and the children will rotate between a bible story station, and craft station, and a breakfast station (pancakes for everyone!) We will celebrate the arrival of the Christ Child. We hope that you and your family will join us for this special day! RSVP's are not required, but if you plan on attending, take a moment to vote in this poll so we can make sure that we will have enough supplies and food! 

Children who are PreK-5th grade will participate in this program. Younger children (infants-3 year olds) will be in their regular classes doing an abbreviated version of the same activities. Contact Kristen Koger if you have any questions.
