With the chilly weather still upon us, please make sure you label your child's jackets and sweaters with their name. We would love to make sure 100% of them make it back home with you. Additionally, please make sure your child always comes to preschool in shoes that they can freely run around in. Even with the cold weather, we get the kids out for playtime each day. Thank you!

The Story is Here - For Adults and Children
Pastor David has started a sermon series on "The Story" which will help us understand who God is, who we are, and the meaning and purpose of life. It is a full year series which walks through the entire bible. Children and youth will also be reading and studying age-appropriate versions of The Story during their Sunday School times.
It is never too late to join in and be a part of this exciting program! Copies of The Story will be available for purchase between services in the gym, or in the church office. Suggested donation is $7 per copy.
