Our God Squad program was started in 2011 as a way that children from the community and church can get together during the school year to learn about our Squad Chief, God. Bible lessons, crafts, singing songs, games in the gym are some of the fun filled activities that can be expected. We are a team of people working for God!

Our Day Camp began in the late 1970’s by an energetic college student seeking opportunities for our church and community children to do activities together with a Christian emphasis.
It runs for 6 weeks during the summer, starting in June after our week of Vacation Bible School and is held at our church pavilion. Day Camp is offered free of charge to children completing 1st – 6th grades, each grade taking one week.
Applications are distributed locally and are available online. Along with a director for each week there are counselors, 7th grade and up, who are there to provide supervision.
