Our Wednesday Night Program during the school year, the J-Walkers, is for any 1st-5th grader. It begins at 5:30pm with dinner (families are welcome to come and eat together), then children head to our Joyful Noise Children's Choir from 6:00-6:30. From 6:30-7:00pm, the children engage in a fellowship activity (game or craft) with a devotion. Everyone is WELCOME!


If your family is staying for both Sunday School and Children’s Church, keep their name tag on. No need to check in twice. Parents should pick up their children to sit as a family in the sanctuary while they wait for the “Time for Young Disciples.”
