to provide a safe and secure, nurturing learning environment filled with love for ALL God's children. Our adult nursery staff is trained in early childhood practices, as well as CPR and first aid. From infancy, children begin participating in a wide variety of age-appropriate learning and fellowship opportunities that are designed to make God and Jesus a party of each of their daily lives. Various hands-on activities are created to model and encourage worship, praise, music, scripture learning, prayer, and mission outreach.

Many of these activities are carefully presented through: arts and crafts, Bible stories and object lessons, cooking, drama, games, family gatherings, field trips, mission and service projects, music and sign language, science, and video presentations. Your child will love the spiritual journey that we take together!

RAISING CHRISTIANS - Start children off on the way they should go and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.  Proverbs 22:6
