Children’s Groups

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”

– Proverbs 22:6

Children's Choir Christmas Program

Children’s Choir

Our Wednesday evening music program is for children ages 3 through 5th grade. This year, we will be starting the school year off virtually using a program developed by the Chorister’s Guild. Because our children attend many different schools in different counties, we have to be extra vigilant to safeguard their health and the health of our staff and volunteers. When it is practical, we will look at the option to resume in-person rehearsals.

Every week, our Children’s Choir director, Bonnie Litteral, will email participants digital files that will teach them a song to practice at home. After learning the song, parents can opt to video their child singing the song. All videos will be combined to create a montage that will be shared during Sunday worship at a future date. Miss Bonnie will also send out additional videos, musical games, a devotional, and a personal message on a weekly basis. Families will be able to access the videos any time during the week at their convenience.

Boy Scout Troop 145

Boy Scout Troop 145 is for young men ages 10 – 18. They meet every Tuesday evening from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. We believe that a smaller Troop provides a better opportunity for Scouts to excel. We encourage you to visit us. Scouting is a great opportunity to learn about outdoor skills, leadership, community, faith, and yourself. To learn more about Boy Scouts, visit http://www.scouting.org.
