What should I wear?

Is there a nursery?
Yes. We provide nursery care for Sunday School and Sunday Church services for kids from birth to 3 years old. Our nursery is a great place to leave your little ones- we love to snuggle, play, and read with your babies. They will be safe and secure with us!
Is there something for my kids?
Yes. We have Sunday School programs for kids of all ages. Our Children’s Ministry exists to partner with parents in raising spiritual champions. We believe that in a child’s life we are just one of their threads to success. Our hope is that you will join our team and network with other parents to beat the odds, and have children who fall in love with Jesus and remain close to Him.
Am I expected to give money?
No. You are our guest and are under no obligation to participate in the offering. We want God to use our service to be a blessing to you. We exist as a church family to help you see hope, experience love, and discover your purpose. It's about what we can do for you, not the other way around.
