Children's Ministry

Celebrate Wonder activities are great for the whole family and are designed to guide children from Nursery – 5th Grade and their families through Bible stories, creative experiences, spiritual practices, and opportunities for reflection to ask questions and engage their natural sense of awe, wonder, imagination and curiosity. Read the Bible story with your children and pick one or two of the activities to do together with your family! Enjoy exploring faith together as you learn, grow and wonder about God together.
