Our mission is to raise up the next Spirit-filled generation
who will change the world.
This is accomplished through our values: the Word of God, worship, prayer, fun, and friendship. We read God’s Word daily, allow it to transform our lives, and teach our children to love and follow it. We connect our hearts to God in worship and invite the Holy Spirit to fill us with His presence and power. We model and inspire a prayerful life so that our children will become mighty prayer warriors who experience the supernatural power of God. We create a happy, engaging environment so our children will love coming to church! We love, grow, learn, and play together.
