Kids of His Light:
Kids from 4 years old to the 4th grade are invited
to join us for fun-filled evenings of games and
activities aimed at highlighting Christ's presence
in our lives.
We will be starting another class soon for those
who are ready to take First Communion (children
in 2nd grade and older, with parental involvement).
To prepare youth to take the next steps in their

church membership, we are pleased to begin
Confirmation education for 6th to 8th grade
