Palm Sunday Children's Parade

The children get to help the church celebrate Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem by waving palm branches.

Easter Celebration

Preparations will be scattered through the season of Lent with lessons on Jesus earthly ministry, resurrection and promise of salvation.  Several butterfly crafts will enhance the lessons and will be collected to decorate the church for Easter. 

Vacation Bible School Program 

Normally scheduled during July

Children 3 years old - 6th Grade will enjoy a center rotation adventure into God's word and love.  Many adult and youth volunteers are needed to make this event happen, it is a great opportunity to be involved and have lots of fun!  Friends, family and community are invited to share the kids' experience through a special program at the end of the week.  Registration information will become available in the spring.
