Children's Ministries

Children's Ministries exists to encourage children to have a firm knowledge of God’s Word and a desire to follow Christ in all areas of their lives. We want them to know how God has revealed Himself through His Word and to know more than just a Bible story. For that reason, our curriculum is God-centered. We also value Scripture memorization and the practical application of God’s Word. Equally important, we want children to see the love of Jesus modeled by caring adults. We feel that the primary spiritual influence in a child’s life should be his parents. With that in mind, we will do all we can to support you in your child’s spiritual training.


July 19-23

For ages 3 to 5th grade

Due to the current guidelines and restrictions for our facility, we will be hosting a "virtual" VBS.

See instructions below.

Virtual VBS Instructions

We are excited to be able to offer VBS online this year! The idea is to experience VBS in your own home. You can enjoy some of the same experiences at your own pace doing as much as you want with your children at any time that is convenient for you. You may also want to invite friends or neighbors over to your home and host your own at-home VBS using the materials we are providing.

Awana Clubs is a church ministry that helps children grow morally and spiritually.  How?  By teaching kids to apply the Bible to their lives!

Awana Clubs motivates children to learn God’s Word by:

  • Offering kid-sized fun—games, prizes, awards, theme nights and more.

  • Providing encouraging relationships with caring qualified leaders!

Boys and girls love the excitement and appeal of our weekly meetings while they’re having blast, they discover powerful truths from the Bible that will benefit them long into adulthood!

Awana Clubs is a local-church program making a global impact.  Did you know that more than 12,000 churches across America—and nearly 11,000 churches, schools and orphanages around the world—run Awana Clubs?  That’s because Jesus loves children everywhere—and we do too!

All children (age two through 6th grade) are invited to participate. 6th-8th graders are encouraged to attend our Jr. High Forge group meeting next door at the same time.
