Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."
Matthew 19:14


Jesus loves children. Some of His greatest miracles involved children. He healed them, restored some to life, welcomed them to His side, and even used a little boy’s lunch to feed a crowd.

Each time your child checks in they will receive a sticker with their name and classroom on it, as well as a cell phone number where a parent can be reached in case of an emergency. You will also receive a pick up tag with a number that is specific to your child. You will need to present the teachers with the pick up tag at the end of service.
