DIScover kids

Discover Kids strives to partner with parents in teaching children spiritual truths to grow them into active disciples. It is our goal and prayer to walk beside your children as they learn to love like Jesus, live like Jesus and live for Jesus!

We provide Sunday morning classes for all ages, newborn through 6th grade, as well as Youth Groups for children in grades

3 - 6, and a variety of family friendly events throughout the year, all focused on bringing children and families closer to Jesus.

Contact Cindy Herpolsheimer for more information.

Jesus L.A.B. 

Our preteens explore and engage in the Jesus L.A.B., where we use science as a tool to "Learn And Believe"! Through cool demos and lots of hands-on fun, kids gain great visuals each week to help them hide God's word in their hearts, and apply it in their lives! 

Couple that with snacks, games and a great chance to make new friends, and the Jesus L.A.B. is the place to be on Sunday night! Bring a friend and join us!
