PARENTING IS TOUGH!
WE WANT TO HELP!
Raising children is a tough task. There are so many influences, so many demands and only so much time and energy. That’s why we want to partner with you as you work toward leading your child on that critical journey from childhood to a healthy, happy, and God-honoring adult life.
We offer a number of ongoing children’s ministries, as well as special programs through the year, to give children a clearer understanding of God and God’s good plan for their lives, as well as providing a safe and fun place for them to be with friends. You’ll love our excited, Kid- friendly staff and volunteers who have a contagious enthusiasm for Jesus.
We hope you will allow us to be a helpful partner in your difficult but incredibly important job of parenting. Let’s join forces to provide the guidance children need to experience God’s good, healthy, fulfilling and joyful plan for their lives.
Feel free to contact The Chapel with any questions or concerns regarding our children’s ministry
Provide a safe and fun environment for children to learn about God and start building a foundation in their faith through ways that are fun and interactive.
Gather children in love and help them grow in the Word of God so they will be equipped to go into the world as disciples of Christ.
Involve children in the total life of the church, from helping in worship, through public prayer, singing, learning about God in Sunday School or Vacation Bible School, and serving God in a variety of age appropriate service opportunities available throughout the year.
God calls us to be in ministry to and for children of our church, the community and the world. In doing so, God calls us to make our church a safe place, protecting children and other vulnerable persons from physical, sexual and/ or emotional harm.
To live this call out, we have adopted a ministry and policies entitle “Safe Sanctuaries”. In doing so it is The Chapel’s absolute and unwavering commitment to the safety and spiritual growth of all our children and youth. Copies of our policies are available in the Church office.
