The reassuring sounds of children at work and at play give promise to the dreams and aspirations of tomorrow. It is our goal that each of these children know and experience God through the loving message of Jesus and the stories from the Bible. Providing a safe and nurturing environment for all our children, from infants to sixth graders, is of utmost importance. As our children grow in their understanding of God’s ever-present love, they will learn to live responsibly with others and to show respect for all life. The ultimate goal is for all our children to know that they are children of God. Click here to learn more.

Great music is transcendent. Whether through a children’s choir, singing with a full orchestra, or on stage in a musical, we long to get lost in words and melody. And every week, we offer that opportunity: creating community, creating worship, creating art. The music ministry in every facet is a place of growth and a chance to offer and celebrate our talents. We represent all walks of life — children, youth, doctors, teachers, lawyers — and each of these people contributes a unique gift to our ensembles. Celebrating community is one of the things we do best…and it makes our music better. Through tours, retreats, the fun we have working toward special music, we offer a place of respite and renewal each time we gather. Click here to learn more.
