Children’s Ministries

There are a variety of children’s ministries to help kids from infant through 5th grade get far down the path to becoming disciples of Jesus.

In Children’s Church, children are invited to glorify God through a time of communal prayer and worship. Children’s Church also includes small group time that creates a place for Children to grow spiritually through Biblical learning and caring relationships. We also offer a Special Needs ministry in order to ensure that every child is given the support they need in order to be able to grow in their faith. Madison Girls and Cadets create a space for children to build relationships as children of various backgrounds, learn about the Bible, and have fun together. Dickinson Bible Club focuses on reaching out to the community.
