We do this in three ways:
1. By introducing children to Jesus and how helping them learn just how much he loves them.
2. By training up a child and leading them to Jesus and helping them develop a loving relationship with God.
3. By teaching the children how to share the word of God with others. This will allow them to develop relationships with one another, and serve our world.
Above all, we want the children to enjoy coming to church and to feel safe, secure, and loved at all times. This is accomplished by our wonderful volunteers who train, teach and love our Saguaro kids.
We invite your family to join us. See our service timeslisted below.
