Throughout the year there are many opportunities for children of all ages.
Educational materials are mailed to church families when a child is born and every three months until the child reaches the age of three and is able to attend Sunday School. These materials allow for parents to be the child's first teacher.
Each year prior to the beginning of school, youth are invited to bring their backpacks to church for a special blessing.
