My Whole Life

I was born to reflect the image of a God who is powerful enough to create my universe, attentive enough to hear my prayers and loving enough to be defined by self-sacrifice. I find my greatest fulfillment on a journey toward purpose and wholeness.

Our Beliefs

Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.

Children’s Ministry

Children are a gift from God. He gives children to parents to reveal the kind of love He has for us; and He gives us the responsibility to train our children to appreciate Him and love and serve Him.

Our Children’s Ministries is about developing faith in our children from birth through the teen years. We seek to provide multiple ministries that will lead children to Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him. Even very small children can learn that Jesus is their friend and that He loves them.

Sabbath School

Saturday morning Bible classes are available for all ages. Leaders use learning activities appropriate to their age level. We want our children to understand God’s grace and love to the extent they are able.

If you do not have the current study guide for your child, please check “SS Resources for All Ages” in the menu. Children, whose parents read the Bible lesson with them during the week, benefit more from the Saturday morning Bible learning activities.
