3am Friends
Proverbs 17:17, 18:24

At the heart of building community is the nurturing of relationships. We must be intentional about growing healthy relationships at all levels. When we are willing to risk and go deep, we may well find the building blocks for true friendships: respect, listening and encouraging. True friendship can experience a level of emotional intimacy that is rarely experienced in any other human contact. Check out Proverbs 17:17 or 18:24. Still not convinced? Look in on David and Jonathan in 1 Samuel 18:1-4.

Children's Ministries
Summer Sunday School

Hey guys, mark your calendars! We're kicking off Summer in children's ministry on Sunday, June 2,  with our summer theme Blast Off!  

Kids will have the opportunity each week to choose their own adventure... cooking, Legos, STEM, recreation, crafts and board games just to name a few! Each week we will explore a spiritual habit as we learn the importance of spending time with God, spending time with others, using our gifts, and sharing our story . We're going to have a blast learning and growing together!
Congregation We Need Your Help!
You can be some of the most important and influential people in our kids' lives. Make the most of the opportunities you have to invest in our kids, build connections with them, share your faith and help them to discover their own. Your presence and time with our kids matter more then you may ever know!

Children's Ministry has several opportunities to serve in Sunday School. We are asking you to please prayerfully consider teaching at least two Sundays this summer.  All lessons will be prepared, the kids are awesome, and you get an opportunity to model the act of service for our children. Please consider this very special opportunity!  Contact Jenny Smith to sign up!
