Student Ministries
Our student ministries, Kids Ministering to Kids, is about developing a heart for serving. We provide opportunities for kids to demonstrate their love for God, the Church, and the broader community through serving others.

Our goal is to expose your children to various opportunities to discover their gifts and be a “leader” in our church and community. Through this exposure, we pray that they will grow in their faith, know they are called to serve, and commit themselves to serve as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Please review these ministries with your child and help them explore their interest and discover their God-given gifts through service.
