We have very specific goals for our children regarding faith and life.

  • We believe that our children are blessings from the Lord and that we are responsible to love, serve, teach, and train them .
  • We know that our culture screams out to simply entertain children, but we believe there is too much at stake to adopt this simplistic approach to children.
  • We want them to have a well formed and developed understanding of God, sin, salvation, identity, vocation, history, and culture.
  • We desire that they would be well informed, articulate, and thoughtful about faith, life, work, and the world.
  • We utilize a variety of curriculum to help us educate our children and teach them to interact with God, his church, and his world.
  • The classes are designed to be age appropriate and faithful to their stage in the developmental process.
  • We do not want to babysit children, we do not want to neglect children, and we do not want to bore children.
  • We want them to grow to love the Lord, flourish in their callings, and love and serve their neighbor in light of who they are in Jesus Christ.
  • None of these things happen without time, effort, and commitment.
  • We are committed to our children and want to pass down the faith – from generation to generation.

Our children meet in various rooms at 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. for Sunday School.  Classes do not meet in summer.   (September – May)

Midweek Activities

Cadets Cadets is a  program for boys, second through eighth grades.  This group meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.   The goal of Cadets is to help boys to grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical, and social).  The Cadet program encourages Bible Study as the guide to life.  It teaches our young boys to learn the skills of an outdoorsman by building character and developing an understanding of  his place in God’s world which helps him to be a faithful steward of all that God has given. “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” — Luke 2:52 Gems “Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior” (Currently Not Active) Gems is a program for girls, second through eighth grades.  This group meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  The goal of Gems is to help bring girls into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.

And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” — Micah 6:8
