EDUCATIONAL DISCIPLESHIP:

The Gospel message is the common foundation of our existence in this local community of faith. It is our duty, as a faith community, to regularly present and discuss the bible’s message of Christ’s words and works to our youth in order to secure their strong faith and their steady spiritual growth.

  • CHURCH SCHOOL – Each Sunday (9:30a -10:30a , “Little Grove Village” 2nd fl. Family Life Center) trained ministry volunteers provide careful, age appropriate, interactive bible lessons to guide students to live Godly lives and make decisions that follow spiritual principles.
  • AWANA – Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed – Trained ministry volunteers lead interactive ordered bible lessons that are age appropriately design to aid young Christians to share their faith in all settings and motivating the young Christian to grow in his Christian knowledge.
