Children's Church & Nursery

We have two age groups (4yrs - 6th grade) of children's church classes during our Sunday morning service (10:30am) that start right before the sermon. Raeann Hedgpeth leads the younger group, and Rick Myers leads the older group. We have age-appropriate Bible lessons and play games that teach about Jesus and the plan of salvation.



Nursery is available for ages 0-3 yrs during Sunday School (9:30am) and during Sunday morning worship (10:30am).

We also have nursery on Wednesday evenings during youth & adult Bible studies (7:00pm).
