Children and Youth

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.

– 1 Timothy 4:12

From infants to 12th grade, the 4:12 Children and Youth Ministry takes advantage of every opportunity to offer guidance and the love of Christ to every child who crawls, walks, or is carried through our physical and virtual doors. We reach, teach,  and grow students to be disciples of Christ through age-appropriate programming events , worship, missions, and more!

a myriad of ways to get involved:
