Family Life service opportunities

Home Church members, out of care for our children and their families, take very seriously our vow during their baptism to care for them and nurture them as they grow in our Christian faith community.

Volunteers of all ages, in addition to our pastors and staff, take significant roles in the children’s Christian education and other programs, including Children's Choir.
