Monthly gatherings feature a blend of age appropriate, service oriented and social activities.

Younger Children

Children of all ages have opportunities to participate and get involved in the life of our congregation. Starting with preschoolers up through the elementary grades, children are invited to come forward each Sunday morning for a special message just for them. High Schoolers prepare special puppet presentations that they present approximately once a month.
