Children’s Ministry


Welcome to our CHILDREN’S CHURCH!

Serving infants-5th grade

It is a tough time to be raising kids. Let us help you raise a “G-rated kid in an R-rated world!”Our mission is:

  • To introduce children to a relationship with Jesus and disciple them.
  • To provide a curriculum that helps our children become Biblically-literate.
  • To partner with parents as they guide their children to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

Leticia Lopez Garces – Childcare Director


The Special Treasures Class (for 8 year olds to 68 year olds) is designed for people with special developmental needs. It meets each Sunday morning from 10:45 am-11:45 am at Padre Dr. This ministry began in 1991 serving those with special needs.

The students are greeted with light refreshments and conversation to build relationships. Crafts and games introduce the lesson of the day. An excellent curriculum, designed especially for the developmentally disabled, is used to teach the Bible lesson and apply it to their lives. Singing, skits and prayer are also part of the morning.

A low student-teacher ratio is maintained to give optimal attention and care. Parents and caregivers are welcome to visit the class anytime. Several field trips and parties are offered throughout the year as well.

Special Treasures will run through June 26th and then take a break for Summer. * Diane Wriedt – Lead teacher


We are praying this is a blessing to you as you see what your children are learning
and as you allow our Children’s Ministry to continue growing!

We hope this supports you in your Family Devotions at home.
Thank you for your enthusiasm and we look forward to getting
to know you.
