Every Wednesday from 6:30 – 8 PM in the Multi-Ministry Building we have a very special Preschool Program for the 4 & 5 Year Olds called Gopher Buddies, and a wonderful Children’s Program for 1st – 6th Graders called Olympians.  In these programs we teach the Word of God to the children, and encourage them to have a daily Quiet time with the Lord in His Word.


Every Sunday at 10:30 AM we have a special Children’s Worship service just for the children in 1st – 6th grade in the Children’s Worship Room in the Multi-Ministry Building.   This service is designed so that the children can have a worship experience on their age level.
