You are also welcome to scroll down to find websites on parenting tips, scholarships and grants, and substance abuse treatment centers.

Spiritual Exploration

As kids grow they begin to ask tough questions like:

  • Where did the world come from?
  • Where do we go when we die?
  • Is heaven real?
  • Who or what is God?

If you’re not sure how to answer and haven’t thought about this for awhile, contact Pastor Liz who can help you explore these questions.

We have a great children’s library, with books, audio books, and DVDs to delight and educate your children.
