Sunday Evening Activities

Sunday evening activities have started back up.  Sunday Evening Worship Service is at 5 pm in the sanctuary.  Youth Group is at 5 pm in the youth basement.  Kid's Night is at 5 pm in the fellowship hall.  There also is a nursery for the Sunday evening worship hour every week. 


Kid's Night is our Sunday evening ministry for our children from age 3 to 5th grade.  It is at the same time as our evening worship and youth group because we want your entire family to be engaged in the worship of God on Sunday evening.  In Kid's Night, your children learn to memorize Scripture, they are taught i separate classes the stories of the Bible and the Children's Catechism.  They learn songs that they will sing in front of the church and the end with playing outside.  It is a time for us to teach our children God's Word and for them to have fun as they do it.


If you or your children have not been to our Sunday evening activities, we encourage you to make it a part of your Sunday.  There is not better way to prepare for the week than for our family to spend the Lord's Day in His house with His people.  We look forward to beginning our Sunday evening schedule again!
