"Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong."

Ephesians 3:7

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."

1 Timothy 4:12


Ages 4 to 12

We believe every child matters to God. We are passionate about modelling and teaching Jesus to our littlest family members. An exciting life with Jesus can begin at any age.

During the summer months of July and August, our teachers will be taking a rest. Starting September, every Sunday we have a program for children ages 4-7 and 8-12. Sept 8th is our Family Funday Kickoff. Stay tuned for details.

Resource - Bible App for Kids. A fun-filled, free resource for your little one at home. Find age specific lessons, colouring pages, and activities.


Ages 12-18

Youth are our next generation of leaders! Beloved Youth are encouraged to lead in various ministries including music, kids and missions. Teens need to know they are loved and significant as they face the pressures of social media and peers every day.

Our Rooted Teens class is held every second and fourth Sunday. It is fun, interactive, we grow together and learn more about Jesus and the Bible.
