Early Childhood Ministry

Welcome to Early Childhood Ministry for children ages 0-5. The purpose of this ministry is to help kids know that God loves them and that Jesus is their friend!

We believe:

  • Everyone has a place at the table
  • Relationships with others are part of our faith journey
  • Baptismal promises shape our lives

God’s Peace from your Children’s Ministry Team!
