It's our desire to help your children discover God's treasure and purpose for their lives while they have fun in a safe, nurturing environment.

Our Quest children's ministry is blessed with an amazing group of volunteers who have been screened and trained in caring for your children. Our heart is to serve you by serving your children and helping them know [and experience] the love of Jesus. We consider it an honor and privilege to be a part of that process!

The focus of this classroom is to provide a safe and comfortable environment where each child will be nurtured and prayed for as they learn to interact with others.
