F.R.O.G. Children’s Worship

Friends Relying On God is where kid’s grow with Jesus hearts, minds and friendships. Children develop as worshipers and as peer leaders where they are encouraged to use and develop their God given gifts. Children grow in heart experience and knowledge that life in God’s family is meaningful and adventuresome.  Children hear, learn and respond to the Gospel message through play, singing their faith, engaging Bible stories, participating in large group activities and building friendships in worship. We offer two groups: 4 year olds – kindergarten and 1st-5th grade. Parents and teens are encouraged to serve as FROG Friends who are official kid encouragers.

Adult Sunday Morning Small Groups

On Sunday mornings at 10:00am, we offer traditional ‘Sunday School’ classes between our two worship services. There are 3 adult classes. Want to know more? Contact Us with your inquiry, and we can help you decide which adult Sunday Morning Small Group is right for you!

Children / Youth Sunday Morning Small Groups

We offer traditional ‘Sunday School’ classes to young folks of all ages every Sunday morning at 10:00, between our two worship services. Senior high, middle school, upper elementary, lower elementary and a nursery for preschoolers and infants are included in our lineup of Sunday youth programs.
