Children's Ministry

​When you train and educate children to know and love God, you have trained a church to know and love God. We want to assist you with training your children and we do this in a variety of ways. Training for those who work with children in Sabbath School, Vacation Bible School and children's church. And the Family Life Department has information on Pathfinder Clubs and Adventurer Clubs for children. Remember that time with your child at these events is time well spent. They will soak up the information like a sponge and learn about Jesus and how much He loves them.
