Our Littlest Angels Preschool
We believe the early years of a child's development are critical to the development of the whole child. Our goal is to help your child learn as much as s/he is capable of in all areas of experience. We feel your child will receive some of the most positive and constructive experiences possible for a preschool child. We will provide guidance by helping your child develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually.
Our program is structured and designed to foster imagination, learning and creativity. We want your child to feel comfortable and secure away from their home environment. We also believe children learn through play. Play is what children do best and enjoy most, so plenty of free play is part of our day. Play is a child's form of work.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
Our Children's Ministry reaches children from newborn through 5th grade. Children are cared for and learn in a safe and loving atmosphere where teachers and workers are trained to present Jesus in a fun and interactive way. Children are grouped by age.
Engage - Students Grades 6-8
At Engage Youth Ministries, we're all about giving kids a safe environment to grow as young people through fun, fellowship with other young people, service projects, events and spiritually-charged teachings that will challenge youth to explore deeper their relationship with Christ.
We believe in letting youth experience Christ in their own ways, on their own terms, meeting with them where they are in life. We are not here to push, pull or force anything. Our goal is to help youth feel comfortable with themselves to strengthen bonds with one another, and ultimately deepen the intimate relationship they share with Christ.
Impact - Students Grades 9-12
Impact Student Ministries takes the journey towards Christ to new levels. We challenge high school students with more in-depth discussion, service projects and life-changing events that meet students where they are, and then help them discover a more intimate relationship with Christ.
Impact is student-led, and thrives on the passion that the youth bring in every week. We believe in creating connections, fostering relationships and providing a fun, spirit-filled environment where youth can express themselves, talk about issues relevant to them as maturing young adults, and ultimately encounter God in deep and meaningful ways. We want to equip these up-and-coming adults with the knowledge, passion and love of Christ that will make an Impact on the world.
The question is . . . ARE YOU READY TO MAKE AN IMPACT?
