Faith Development for Children

2016-17 Programs for Children

With the help of an experienced and committed team of teachers our program will:

* Apply our beliefs in God and Jesus to our lives
* Help children gain a better understanding of Jesus and the Bible
* Teach children to work together in a caring and peaceful community

Upcoming Events

May 7th – Annual Spring Play during the 8:15 and 10:00 a.m. services.
This year’s spring play will be “Through the Roof!”  It is based on the Gospel of Luke 5: 17-26.  The story is about a person suffering from paralysis who was determined to ask Jesus to heal their sufferings and went to pretty extreme measures to meet up with him!

Mission Statement

To create and promote opportunities for religious education, spiritual growth, and intergenerational connections for our members and friends throughout their lifespans.

Our picture policy

We will not identify any children by name in photos on the web site or Facebook. We ask members and friends to notify us on the registration form if they do not want their children pictured on the web site or Facebook at all. Please let Pastor Phil or Rebecca Malke know if you are concerned about this.
