Children's Sunday School
We want kids to know that God loves them. So we support kids and families growing in faith together. The second Sunday of each month, we have Sunday School at 9 am for children ages 2-7. Children hear a Bible story, sing songs, play games, do crafts, and have a snack. Families are welcome to stay and participate with their children. If you would like to learn more, or if you have older children who also want to be involved, contact Pastor Julie.
