Upcoming Children & Youth Events:~
Come join us for Family Fellowship on Wednesday evenings at
7pm. There are activities for children, youth, and adults. The
format gives us a chance to come together and have fellowship as
a large group, and then we break into small groups for age
appropriate discussion, ending together with a group activity. It’s
a lot of fun and another way to get to know your brothers and
sisters in Christ.
