Serve

Working with our children is far more than toys, coloring pages, and flannelgraphs. It is about building strong biblical foundations that will help our kids develop their walk with God! This rewarding ministry could not exist without the time and talents of faithful individuals like you.

All Kid Ministry volunteers are required to complete a background check and application to ensure the safety of our children.
