Children's TimeSunday Church School is offered on Sunday mornings as part of the 9:00am worship service. All Children begin in worship and stay through the Children's Time message by the Pastor. Then they exit to the fellowship hall for a relevant and biblical lesson. Our relevant curriculum is biblically centered and contemporary.

Confirmation Ministry for our intermediate and middle school youth is held on Tuesday evenings beginning October 10th and continuing through May. The Pastor and a lay assistant, assisted by parent guides, lead this exciting interactive and high energy program. It is open for children and youth from fifth through eighth grades.

The program curriculum revolves around a three year period including studies on the Bible, both Old and New Testaments; Prayer and the Lord's Prayer; The Ten Commandments; the Creed; and the Sacraments. Many skits, praise music and special projects enhance this program. After three years the youth reaffirm their baptismal vows in the celebrative rite of Confirmation. This formal occasion is highlighted by the white robed confirmands and concludes with a gala reception.

Youth Group for middle school and high school youth gather every Friday night at the church at 7PM unless otherwise notified. Activities include fellowship, service projects, and group Bible discussions.

Upcoming special events:

  • June 29-July 1 - Youth Beach Trip
  • July 13-17 from 6:00-8:00 pm - Hometown Nazareth VBS
  • Stay tuned for other exciting stuff this summer
Vacation Bible School happens each summer for one glorious week. This experience includes ample opportunity for the children to share arts and crafts along with their Bible studies. A special highlight of this summertime experience is that supper is included. After a simple supper, the menu created around children's desires and needs, the program takes off. An early evening format allows year round school children to participate even after a day at school.

Nursery Care is provided at the Sunday morning worship service. A paid trained attendant leads with youth assistants in a safe, warm and loving environment. A fenced in back yard even allows for outdoor play and recreation. A Cradle Roll is maintained with devotional material made available for parents to use with their children in the home as they grow.
