Our goal is to provide a safe environment where children will experience the love of God through Jesus Christ and discover that they are a unique and very important part of God’s family.
 

Bible lessons, music and fun activities are geared to help children grow in their faith and also emphasize the importance of sharing that faith in the world by our actions and service to others.

The safety and security of our children is very important to us. All of our volunteers and staff have up to date criminal record and child abuse clearances and attend a required yearly training and review of our church safety policies.

Sprouts is a time of fellowship and fun open to any 3rd, 4th or 5th grade student wanting to develop a closer relationship with God, wanting to know how to show love for God and other people, and wanting to spend time with others who are growing in faith. Friends are always welcome!

No need to find parking for Sprouts. Drop off your child  at the alley door and we will be there to let him/her in to begin at 4:30. We end at 7 and will walk the kids to the same door to dismiss.
