Stepping Stones to Worship (Ages 4-7)
While you are welcome to worship together as a family, if you desire we have a children’s worship time (during the sermon) which children (ages 4-7) are welcome to attend. While in Stepping Stones to Worship, children are taught a Gospel-centered lesson from the Bible aimed at their level of understanding and how to apply it to their lives.
