We believe that disciple-making should take place first and foremost in the home. The church is here to encourage and equip parents in that task. We provide a number of resources for parents for family worship and discipleship at home, including free books, catechisms and other resources, and a weekly family worship guide on our blog.
You will often hear us say that the worship center is like a living room where a family is gathered - you can expect noise and movement from children, and that is perfectly fine! We want to see children brought up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord by their parents and to help them in that important work. Our focus on equipping parents and encouraging families to worship together, coupled with our focus on rich theological education informs what we offer in our children's ministry.

The Worship Service
Children under 5 can remain in our care or stay with you during the worship service. We have a number of babies and preschool-age children in our worship service with their parents, which we encourage.
All children 5 and older attend the worship service with their parents. We provide children's activity baskets and sermon listening guides in the main building foyer,
Our Fellowship Hall and Mothers' Room are open each Sunday in the main building with a livestream of the service if you need to step out of the Worship Center. Our children's building also has a nursing mothers' room.
We have special events throughout the year, including a spring egg hunt, VBS, family retreat, fall festival, Christmas breakfast, parents' nights out, and more. In October 2023, we are hosting a parenting seminar.
