Children's Ministry at Home

We believe the spiritual growth of all people, including children, is important, and under normal circumstances Sunday School is a great way to kickstart the week and provide a time for children to learn more about Jesus.  Unfortunately, circumstances are far from normal, which is pushing us to be creative in how we can continue to provide these learning opportunities.  Browse below to find ways in which parents can engage their children throughout the week and help in their spiritual growth.
