Special Worship Experience

Psalm 139:14 reads, “I will praise Thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” This scripture describes the children in our ministry, between the ages of 5 and 10 with ADD, ADHD, Autism and Down Syndrome. Come join us!! We meet every 2nd and 4th Sunday at 11:15. Our classes nurture each child’s individual ability, while they learn about Jesus. This also provides an opportunity for families to come to worship while leaving their children in a safe, structured environment.
