Wednesday Bible School - September thru May 

We welcome all kids ages three and up, regardless of church membership or affiliation, to become part of an active ministry.  Supper is served from 5:30 to 6:00 for everyone, kids and family.  At 6:00 we move to singing, crafts and teaching and just before everyone goes home, we join together in The Lord's Prayer.


We're a vibrant, small-town church that welcomes everyone.  If you're new to the area, we hope you'll give us a try.  If it's been a while since you've had a church home, we hope you'll take a chance on us.  Come and experience God's love with a group of people trying to live out that love.
