Without Boundaries

Without Boundaries is a ministry for families who have children with special needs. A safe environment for children that allows them to learn and know God's love on a weekly basis.

All children have the opportunity to listen to a Bible story and participate with the lesson, sing and play a musical instrument, create a craft, learn the Lord's Prayer, and have one on one time with a buddy (trained helper). Each class has a teacher and several buddies who model Christ's love and provide hands-on help as needed.

While children participate, the families can worship together at 10:30 or 10:45 services. We meet each Sunday morning from 10:30 am-12:00 pm. Please contact Lea Webb, Co-Director of Children and Family Ministry, at for more information, an assessment form for your child, or volunteer opportunities.


Confirmation is designed for families of 5th-8th grade students. Young people at this stage learn, develop, and take ownership the professions of their faith. It is also the opportunity to be commissioned into full participation in congregational life. Confirmation promotes the lifestyle of following Jesus.

Five Truths That Shape the Christian Life — The Solas of the Reformation. This class is also being offered during the education hour, 9:15-10:15 am, on Sundays. It’s been 500 years since Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany. His Theses call for the reform of the church and served as a catalyst for Protestant Reformation. And its impact is still felt today! This program relives the work of Luther and other Reformers who challenged the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and explores the five core truths — the solas — that came out of the Reformation. Videos which last from 16-22 minutes, are taught by various scholars. There is no cost for this class; all materials will be provided.

*During Advent, class will begin at 7:00 pm.
