The goal of this project learning, is to teach our children to be the hands of Christ by loving others and helping those who need it most.
“Children's Church" During the 9:00 church hour, the children leave "big church" to have church of their own. During this time, they study stories and morals from the bible, as well as church traditions and why we continue to honor them.
