Sunday Circle – Worship

Messy Church
Sep 9 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Traditional worship services can be hard to enjoy as a family.  
That’s why we made Messy Church!

Messy Church is a worship service designed especially for children, ages 0-5, and their parents. 

At Messy Church, we sing, we read bible stories, we play games, do crafts, and eat dinner together.

And, even more importantly, we send home with resources to help you keep the conversation about faith and values going!
