Faith Outfitters names our children's ministry, because that is who we are called to be for all children. As faith outfitters, we strive to equip children with:

  • Friends in God’s family
  • Adventures in God’s word
  • Images of God’s love
  • Trust in God’s promises
  • Hearts and Hands for God’s world.

Children and family ministry includes Sunday School, a summer Vacation Bible Adventure, and summer camps. We offer many family events around faith milestones such as communion preparation, Bible learning activities, and programs related to the church year. Family-friendly service options are scheduled regularly.
