Each Wednesday Night our Children meet for RA's, GA's, and Mission Friends. These classes are designed to teach children the Bible while at the same time teaching them about Missions in different parts of world. Girls do projects each week that include cooking and various other things that reinforce the teaching that they are using. RA's or Royal ambassadors do things that boys like to do such as learn to set up tents, build race cars, and various other projects. They also learn about missions as part of their weekly lesson. Our Mission Friend's (Preschool/Kindergarten) work with the RA's and GA's and have age appropriate lessons that revolve around Scripture and Missions.
