Welcome to House of Judah's Growing Center (Children's Ministry)
 
The Growing Center Teachers advocate that all children are welcome and expected to be fully engaged .We plan and carry out a comprehensive program for children that includes worship, study, fellowship, service experiences, and other experiences that guide children as they grow in faith.
They regularly and intentionally communicate with parents, families, and Pastors so that the children have multiple opportunities to thrive as Disciples.
