Elementary | 1st - 5th Grade

The elementary area is a place where kids from first through fifth grade learn that they can grow in their relationship with their Creator by studying His Word, worshiping Him with wholehearted praise, and serving like Christ.

On Sundays, the elementary kids meet in the gym during the 9:30am and 11:00am services.
