A Word from our Children’s Minister

When we began praying about a new space for our children, we had no idea that the space we’d be getting would be so amazing. We are thankful for the old space. A lot of kids heard about and got to know Jesus there. But we also had some struggles. Leaks were a big problem. Each time it would rain, we’d find a new leak. Although we tried our best to fix them, they took a toll. Taking the kids to the restroom was always complicated and our whole space wasn’t very centralized and wasn’t designed with safety in mind.

There are many things I am excited to see how God will use the new building to reach even more kids of our church and community. The space is modern and is accessible for all kids . We have great Volunteers that are ready to serve our families. As I thought about this great new space, I was really excited about these 5 things:

 

  • Modern Space
  • Accessibility for all kids
  • A space for kids to come to Worship together
  • More secure space for our families
  • We have spaces for kids to learn, worship and play

Not only am I excited to have this great space for children, but I am looking forward to the new families who will be drawn to the church and to a relationship with Christ because there is a great place just for their kiddos.
