“Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18).

Worship is the heart of all parish life, the time when the greatest number of members gathers to proclaim the gospel and receive God’s life-giving power in Word and sacrament. Our church ministries offer spiritual and practical guidance to individuals and families as they share God’s love to those with special needs or in special circumstances.

"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God" 1 Peter 4: 10.

Kid's Ministry

Children's Church is an opportunity for children to celebrate their love for the Lord. It is a worship experience focused totally on children and building their understanding of  the Bible and promoting a meaningful relationship with God.  Children's Church celebrates all the ministries that are provided for children and gives the children involved a weekly opportunity to display what they are learning in many unique and creative ways.
