Water Day: Each August we hold a water day for preschool and elementary kids to celebrate summer before school begins. This day is held during our regular Sunday morning service, and the kids get to go through multiple water stations before enjoying popsicles at the end.

 

Step-up Day: Each year right around Labor Day we hold our official step-up Sunday where kids entering certain grade levels move up to a new class.  Kids entering 6th grade will then move up to the Youth Group.

 

AWANA: Starting around Labor Day week and going until April, we have AWANA every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8pm for children from birth-5th grade with a youth group program as well. This weekly event is free for all families, and more volunteers are always needed. Please note there will be NO Awana on the following dates: 

Fall Festival: Each October we have a Fall Festival on a Saturday evening that includes hayrides, a bonfire, crafts, food, and more!  This is a free event for anyone in the community..

 

Christmas Program: During one Sunday in December, the children in preschool and the elementary class perform various Christmas songs on stage during the regular Sunday morning time.  They practice this performance starting at the end of October. This year the program will be held Sunday, December 11 during the 10am service.
