2021 Student Highlights

For Parents


We believe students need a place to have fun, learn about God, be encouraged, and connect with positive adults. As parents, we know you want your children to be in an environment that will help them discover and grow in their faith. We commit to providing that environment each Sunday and Wednesday. New student members are always welcome!
