Children's Programs

Opportunities for children include:

Children's time - A time with the pastor near the beginning of Sunday worship.

Sunday School - Sunday School begins with a time for music before splitting into classes. We currently use the Shine Curriculum in our Sunday School classes.

Music Ministry - Joy Chimes provides an entry level experience of hand bell performance for children as young as first grade. Praise Ringers allows children to continue progressing in their hand bell proficiency. All children’s music groups receive opportunities to perform during worship services.

Vacation Bible School - One week every June for crafts, songs, snacks, and faith exploration. Because of our fundraising efforts through Deck the Halls, our Vacation Bible School is free again this year for participants!

Summer Camp - Camp Adams is a treasured part of the Central Pacific Conference and holds youth camps every summer for children as young as kindergarten. Our church provides "Camperships" for families who ask for financial support to attend camp.

Special Events - We hold annual events such as our Easter Egg Hunt, Trunk-or-Treat, and Valentine's cookie decorating. Check the calendar for upcoming events.


Childcare is provided in our nursery during Sunday worship by a professional nursery attendent.

Parents are asked to leave a phone number so they may be contacted if necessary.
