Bringing Up Children
Everyone wants his or her child to have a good education and to be physically fit and healthy. Everyone wants his or her child to be loved and safe. But we also need to provide for our children moral and spiritual education to become productive, responsible, and contributing members of our society. However, in today’s competitive culture it is easy to forget about moral and religious education.

We think of getting into a good college and making sure they get good jobs. We get them on the best sports teams. Becoming a moral and spiritual person also requires practice, preparation and above all, choices.

Our church is committed to educating the children of our community in the moral and spiritual truths of Christianity that brings balance to their lives. There is a saying of Jesus: “…seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8).

We are all seekers. Come join us as we seek to know ourselves and God and new ways to serve God.

We invite you and your children to our church. For the children there are church school classes and our children’s choirs. For you there are also opportunities to learn and practice faith, to volunteer in many community service projects of the church. And for both there are many family activities of our church. We’ll help you bring that balance into their lives and yours.

For more information call the office or visit Children & Youth.
