Church School

Our philosophy of childcare is based on a holistic approach grounded in Matthew 19:14: “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” We welcome all children and view them as whole members of our community. We seek to support their faith development and nurture their sense of God’s love for them.

Each week children are offered a variety of age appropriate ways to engage and grow in their faith, sing songs, learn about the bible and have fun!
