  Christmas Spectacular 2017 a true gift!

A glimpse of the show!

This is WORSHIP dedicated to our young disciples during the 11:00 am service. This enables our children to have a better understanding of God’s teachings while including them as an integral part of family worship. Costumes, props, puppets, and music help make this part of Sunday worship special to children and adults alike.

KIDS WITH PURPOSE Kindergarten-5th grade
Kids with Purpose is a family mission orientated program that teaches kids how important it is to SERVE the Lord by serving each other.   Children and their families meet monthly to be in service as the hands and feet of Jesus.  Service opportunities have included freezer meals for the church family, church member yard clean up, and Christmas caroling to our shut-ins.


February Mission KWP thanks the Free Clinic volunteers!

For our February mission we will be preparing dinner for the Free Clinic volunteers.  We will make Taco soup, corn bread, and brownies for the 12 volunteers.  We will have lunch after the 11:00 service and then cook the meal and color Christian bookmarks as a gift.  I will deliver the prepared meal and bookmarks to the clinic on Monday.
Come and enjoy the family fellowship of Kids With Purpose!
