J.A.M. (JESUS AND ME) is our Wednesday night programming for rising K4 – 3rd Graders.  Children will grow in their faith walk as they come to know Jesus through Bible stories, prayer, music, scripture memorization, games, and crafts.  This group meets at 6:30pm in RM 11A/B located in  the Education Building. 
TWEENS (4th/5th Graders)…
is an amazing group of young people that meets twice a week. Each Wednesday evening at 6:30pm (after dinner which begins at 5:45pm in the MMC) upstairs in the MMC to participate in a Christ-centered interactive program.  We are currently participating in a book study using “Shaken” by Tim Tebow.
Tweens meet once again on Sunday evenings beginning at 6pm in Rm 13 located in the Education Building for a time of devotion, fun & fellowship.
