Kids Volunteer Team

We’re so excited to see more families coming back to worship with us! As we see more kiddos coming, we’re finding ourselves needing more volunteers. When we’re able to serve more kids, we can share the news of Jesus with more families. We would love to answer any questions you have about volunteering!

Kids Summer Camp

Our Kids team has been working hard to prepare for this summer! We had a blast at epic week last year and would love to invite you back again! Mark your calendars for July 26-29. You won’t want to miss it!

Registration opens March 1st!
