Children's Church

Children aged 4-7 years may attend the early "Praise" Sunday Service or the late Traditional Service for the first 15 minutes or so, where they are welcomed by the Pastor and treated to a special mini-sermon at the front of the congregation.

Immediately afterward, the children may return to their seats if they like, or they may go with the Children's Church Leader for a fun time studying God's Word in the nursery area. Parents can pick-up their children after the service.
