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.

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.

 KWP Annual Christmas Caroling

 Friday, December 21st at 5:00PM

What a wonderful way to bring the true spirit of Christmas to those who may not always feel it.  Let’s bring the joy of Christmas to those who need it with our proud Kids With Purpose voices!  This is a whole family event, bring friends if you would like, the more the merrier!  We will start the night off at 5:00 assembling toiletry bags to be distributed to the homeless.   Following our mission, we will have dinner and then head out for caroling.(I believe we will be driving this year, car pooling is possible!)  Please bring cookies to share and warms hats for our service tree in the Welcome Center(they will be given to chemo patients at Johnston Willis).  I can’t wait to see you there!
