Children’s Ministry

Second Sabbath Children’s Program

2 PM on the second Sabbath of every month
The theme is Stories Jesus Told.
The program is designed for children aged 4 – 12,
but younger children are welcome if a parent stays with them,
and teens are encouraged to participate as teen helpers.


The purpose of our Children Ministries is to reach children with
the hope and love of Jesus Christ through a creative, interactive, and
fun environment! Our desire is to connect them to their peers through
meaningful relationships, and to teach children how to honor God with
their lives.

Our mission is to partner with families as a nurturing, biblical community that provides child-relevant and age-appropriate opportunities for children, so they can come to know Him, learn to love Him, and be equipped to serve Him.

Getting Your Children Get Involved

Some of our exciting connecting points for children include:

  • Adventurers
  • Children’s Sabbath School
  • Community Service: Children giving back to the community
  • Junior Deacons
  • Music & Worship Arts: God’s Inspiration Children’s Choir, soloists, instrumentalists, poetry, Youth Liturgical Dance, etc., for worship services, AYS, and special programs
  • Pathfinders
  • Vacation Bible School

Other Ways We Support Children

  • Christian Education: Tuition support for SDA elementary, middle and high school education
  • Bible Study & Baptism Class: We use a guided bible study designed specifically for children and youth and will arrange a baptism service to affirm the child’s decision.

Our Volunteers

Children Ministries is fully aware of the responsibility placed on them in caring for the needs of your children. Adults who work with any ministry involving children/youth complete a detailed application, must receive clearance from a background investigation check, and meet with a member of the pastoral staff and/or designee for an interview. We want to insure that only those with the strongest spiritual foundation and high moral ethics are working with your child.
