Your family is important to our church. We want to partner with you and support your role as spiritual leader to your child. The opportunity for your kids to connect with God's Word is invaluable and a cornerstone of their Faith Formation.

Our Preteen Ministry, F.L.Y.T.E., is for 5th & 6th graders. F.L.Y.T.E. is a relaxed atmosphere, not a classroom setting.

In addition to Sunday mornings, there will be both on and off campus events for F.L.Y.T.E. throughout the year. You can find more info on these events at the pre-teen ministry table.
We also try to incorporate several service projects throughout the year. These projects may, on occasion, require

We invite you to visit the Children's Ministry table any Sunday to find out what opportunities are waiting for you.
We hope you’ll find encouragement in your role as a parent and a spiritual leader for your child. May these tools serve to remind you how important you are in nurturing your child’s spiritual life – and how blessed you are to be entrusted with this awesome responsibility!
God bless you!
