“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
We have a great desire to see children come to know Christ and then train them to follow Him for a lifetime. Teaching children within a safe, secure, and loving environment is our priority as we partner with you to lay a biblical foundation for your child’s spiritual growth. In a society where pressures to conform are great, we seek to equip children to conform not to the world, but to Christ. Through Bible-based programs and interactive learning, children are guided to form a solid relationship with Christ and with others.
