More than 200 volunteers fuel all Children & Family Ministry programs (nursery – grade 5). Commitments are about an hour per week, but timeless in rewards. More help is needed to bring the Bible out of the book and into the hearts of children.
Be a Piece of our Puzzle: Let us help you find your fit!
