Volunteers in our children's ministry (nursery – 5th) get the opportunity to shepherd and care for our little ones during weekend worship services through singing, dancing, and teaching the truth of God’s Word. They help check in kids at the welcome desk each morning, lead classrooms, and as well provide as an aide to the assigned teacher. Our children's ministry is consistently growing, and we are always welcoming volunteers. Our goal is to create a welcoming and nurturing environment where each child will see, hear, and feel the love of Jesus Christ and parents can feel confident their children will receive care and ministry.
Our student ministry is lead by Pastor David Morris with the aide of church volunteers. This ministry has the opportunity to create relationships with Middle School and High School students and minister to them through the teaching and discussion of scripture and intentional discipleship. Volunteers can serve through providing and serving food, planning activities/events, leading small group discussion, or teaching the large group. Our prayer is that our students will be cared for and equipped to share the gospel with others and to reflect Jesus Christ to their peers.
