Your kids will experience an age appropriate lesson that will teach them about God and His love for them. The teaching is interactive and utilizes multiple approaches for different learning styles. Weekly kids teaching is aligned with the sermon topic and the adult Life Groups so everyone is on the same page. Our goal is for kids to have fun and understand who Jesus is and how He can make a difference in their lives.
