I have hidden Your word in my heart so that I might not sin against You. // Psalm 119:11

PRESCHOOL:
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. // Psalm 150:6

HAS YOUR CHILD SAID ‘YES’ TO JESUS?

We believe that parents are the primary disciplemakers of their children, but we want to provide you with as many resources as possible to help make that process easy for you! We’ve put together a PDF that has simple, but powerful truths about our great God. We hope this will be a useful tool in helping your child understand the love and promises from God. 

COMING SOON: SUNDAY FUNDAY 

Save the date! We will be having our next SUNDAY FUNDAY on November 3. Dress your kiddos in their favorite PJs and join us November 3 for a super fun PJs and Pancakes Sunday.
