Our desire as a Youth Ministry is to come along side you the parent as your children grow into young adults. Introducing them to the person of Christ, making Him the Lord of their lives and helping instill in them the Fruit of the Spirit as they grow in their relationship with Jesus.
One of the many benefits you can expect your child to experience is learning from the experience of our Christian senior living members. We believe connecting children with older generations yields many benefits for everyone involved. By having a faith-based senior living community close by the opportunity for your child to find a mentor through worship is always there.
Below are a few sites that I hope you will find helpful to you and your family.
