- We are blessed to be able to support two classes of preschool (August through May). Children ages 3-5 are welcome. 3 & 4 year-olds have class on Tuesday/Thursday and 4 & 5 year-olds have class on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Parents can expect their children to learn their colors, numbers (even in French), and letters right alongside Christian basics for children (loving each other, God, nature)
Vacation Bible School
- VBS incorporates themed activities that entertain kids with the chance to learn about God. Vacation Bible School is an easy way to get kids involved in church while giving you the opportunity to meet the people within the church too. Church membership is not required to participate and it’s a laid back atmosphere.

Mustard Seed Band
- The Mustard Seed Band leads worship in our contemporary service (11 A.M.). We celebrate our faith in a more modern venue. We play a variety of contemporary and recent worship songs. The band consists of keyboard, drums, guitar, bass and singers. Of course, we would love to add other instruments as well. From time to time we play in the community. We have played at the Mint Festival (Father’s Day weekend) and at the Christmas parade.
- The choir sings during the traditional service (9 A.M.) from September through May. We sing with the piano or accompaniment CDs. For holidays, the congregation is treated to a cantata often enhanced with actors and liturgical dancers. We welcome all voices to add to our blend! Practice is at 6:00 P.M. on Wednesdays beginning in late August. Call the church office for an official beginning date.
- We offer a bible study on a regular basis. To fellowship with your brothers and sisters in Christ feel free to come to any Bible Study that we offer. To find out more information about what we offer contact the church office (574-896-5927).
