KidMin

Children's Ministry
In our children’s ministry, we are partnering with parents and guardians to raise the next generation of believers and servants!

Our children are learning the fundamentals of our faith while developing a strong spiritual foundation.

We exist, for God’s glory, to introduce kids to Jesus and disciple them as Christ-followers that they might introduce the next generation to Jesus and make disciples of them.

Hilltoppers

Senior Adults Ministry
We believe there is no exact age that determines whether or not you are a “Senior”.  Some say 55 or 60 and others 62 and up.  Our group says we welcome you to come and join us and if you are blessed and have enjoyed yourself, we would love for you to join us.  We plan activities each month, some local some overnight or weekend trips.

The Hilltoppers' Focus

 Fellowship
We love to come together and have a good time.

 “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” -  1 John 1:7
 Encouragement 
All of us need to be encouraged. Seniors face many challenges as age creeps up on us.

"Even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you.  I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save." - Isaiah 46:4
Friendship
There are no strangers here, only friends we have not yet met.

"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." - Proverbs 18:24

Mother's Day Out

Family Ministry
We provide excellent and safe child care in a setting of Christian love and emphasizing Christian values, meanwhile, giving parents a day to spend as they please free of responsibility for their children.
 
Children are given the opportunity to play freely and interact with other children to develop social skills. Bible stories are read each day as well as other storybooks. Prayer is said before snack and lunch.
