First Kids Worship
is available to any child Kindergarten to 5th grade who is interested! You can drop your child off in the Fellowship Hall before church begins. While you are in service, we have a service of our own!

We worship through songs, joys & concerns, scripture reading & discussion and a craft. We even have a monthly memory verse that we work on during the Children's Church service. Come join us during the 9:00 and 10:45 services!
