How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.

Sunday School

Looking for something more? Are you looking to connect with people how are dealing with the same things you are? Then Sunday school is going to be great for you. We have Sunday school classes for all age groups with teachers that present the Word of God and members who desire to bring you into the community and walk with you in life.



Children’s Ministry

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. Children’s Church is available for ages Preschool and up during our worship service hour. Nursery is available during the worship service for babies to age 3.


AWANA is a world-wide children’s ministry which focuses on scripture memorization, as well as incorporates lessons, music, and games. AWANA stands for “approved workmen are not ashamed,” which comes from the key verse of 2 Timothy 2:15, which says “Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the word of truth with precision.” AWANA is open to children of age 3 years through 6th grade. The calendar coincides with most school years, so it is not held during the summer.
The AWANA year begins in September and ends in May of each year.
The costs associated with the AWANA program vary by age.
