We believe that children are not "just kids" but they are an important and functioning part of the Body of Christ. The Big House children's ministry, Tree House, exists to train and equip our young ones to grow and thrive in a relationship with Jesus. Directed by  Josh and Anna Smith, Tree House welcomes your children to our 3pm Sunday Service to learn about God's Kingdom and their exciting and vital role in it!
