our youngest ones, from birth through the preschool ages, can experience loving care that will contribute to their understanding of God’s love and compliment the care they receive at home. These precious ones are lovingly cared for in our nursery and toddler rooms. These nurseries are available during all church services. They are located through the door by the piano at the front of the sanctuary, strait back through all the doors and take a right at the end of the hallway.

4BC December: A Walk to the Beginning of Christmas
4BC December: A Walk to the Beginning of Christmas is an live, outdoor, walking drama that will take you back to the time of the birth of Jesus Christ. This annual ministry began in 2008 and is a ministry that involves most of the church family. Attendees follow Isha or Micaiah as they journey in search of the promised Messiah. They travel to Bethlehem from an oasis on the way from Nazareth where they here the royal decree. Inside Bethlehem, a market filled with merchants greets them, and they continue to the inn that had no room for Mary and Joseph to the stable that was the first sanctuary of the Messiah. Attendees learn historical facts from that time period, get a fresh perspective of the difficulty of that time, interact with the characters, and even see live animals, including live camels! You do not want to miss this amazing drama of the beginning of Christmas! (Please click the heading for more information.)
