Fellowship
Coffee Time – each Sunday after worship
 
Persons who want to grow in friendship and build community with others will find plenty of opportunities at our church. A weekly coffee time after worship brings together newcomers and members for visiting and getting better acquainted. Meals, outings and other special events strengthen these relationships and provide lots of fun through the year.

Children’s Ministry
Sunday School – Sunday, 11:00 a.m. (September – May)
Children’s Church – Sunday, 10:00 a.m. (June – August)
 
Following a children’s sermon with the pastor in worship, preschool and elementary age children are dismissed to the lower level for educational programs geared to their age level. Teaching is designed to bring the Bible to life through stories, activities, crafts and music. 
 
The children are involved also in several hands-on service projects. They send greeting cards to our ill and homebound members. They assist in worship as acolytes who light the candles and ring the church bell.
 
Our congregation takes an active role in the community Vacation Bible School held one week during the summer. Further, we encourage children to attend one of the six church camps in our conference.
