Our Shepherd’s Kids ministry exists to partner with parents in the intentional disciple-making efforts of their children where we teach kids to know God, think biblically, and live wisely. We do that through providing a wide variety of fun and purposeful Bible-based ministries for kids and helpful resources for parents.

Meetings are Monday evenings starting at 6:30pm. Elementary aged trailmen end meetings at 7:30pm and the Middle School and High School aged trailmen end at 8pm.
