Events for your whole family

Who doesn’t love some good family fun--especially when the mess is kept away from your house?!  Whether we’re decorating gingerbread houses or enjoying s’mores around the new outdoor fireplace, we always have a great time!  In fact, some of our favorite memories come from time spent in community with other families.

We strive to have regularly-scheduled events for children and families to enjoy.  Some of these have included:

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Offered mornings the first full week of August.

Summer Olympics

A fun, outdoor event with relay races, water balloons, medals and a giant slingshot.


A free community-wide event in Pioneer Park complete with taco bar, piñata, photo booth and games.


A safe trick-or-treating experience from car to car in the church parking lot, along with games and pumpkin decorating.

Christmas Festival

A massive gingerbread decorating party complete with pre-assembled gingerbread houses, photo opps with Santa and a hot cocoa bar. 

Art & Apps

A painting and appetizers night led by artist and local elementary school teacher, Sarah Vagle.


There is always room for one more child, one more family and one more volunteer in Children and Family Ministries!  If you would like more information and/or you want to become involved, contact our Director of Children’s, Youth and Family Ministries, or the church office.
