Our mission is to foster faith in God by empowering all generations to seek, find, love, and serve in the footsteps of Jesus, and to know His great love in return. We do this by creating a program that models the family, where different generations learn from each other. For in Him, “the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple of the Lord." We place a special value on each and every person as a unique, chosen member of the church body no matter age, race, gender, ability, or creed.
Please join us for our first day of EMPOWER classes on Sunday, September 18th, 2022! When you arrive, PLEASE SIGN IN at the check-in desk. Then parents and children join together in the main sanctuary for praise and prayer time. After that, the youth and children will be dismissed to their classrooms.
We are still looking for new leadership for our program.

Our programming for the school year includes a total church curriculum called Follow Me from the PCUSA. The weekly lessons of EMPOWERkids are the same sermons the adults and youth are hearing and discussing. This model reinforces family discussion outside of church. We hold fast to a bible-based, Christ-centered, Spirit led approach to learning about God.
EMPOWERkids does not meet on holiday weekends during the school year, nor during the summer. Click here with any questions or to join our mailing list.

"We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget His deeds, but would keep His commands." Psalm 78:4-7
