The Maranatha family fellowships regularly outside of scheduled church services and events. One of our main goals is to foster an atmosphere where individuals can grow spiritually and glorify God through their lives. It is much easier when you walk that path with a friend! We firmly believe in meeting together frequently in order to “provoke one another unto love and good works” (Hebrews 10:24–25).

Children’s Ministries

Nursery Ministry

Maranatha provides nursery care for children ages 3 and younger during all services. Our nursery is staffed with experienced volunteers who love children! As parents communicate feeding, napping and changing needs at drop off, our workers make every effort to accommodate the children’s schedules while they are in the nursery environment. It’s never too early to begin teaching good character! We work side-by-side with the parents to teach the children to share, say “please” and “thank you” and encourage them to be helpful during clean-up time.

Mid-Week Children’s Program

Kidz Clubz is a fun Children’s program that is offered each Wednesday evening from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. Kids ages 4–11 have opportunities to learn about God at work—in their own lives as well as in the world—through stories, songs and games. Kids get to have a great time, make lifelong friends and learn valuable spiritual lessons all at the same time!

Sunday School

​Sunday School Classes are offered for children ages four and older. Children’s classes are systematically taught so that our students experience in-depth teaching at age-appropriate levels over a wide range of material.

Junior Church

Junior Church is provided for children fifth grade and under. We meet during the morning message. Kids love it because the stories are exciting and relevant. We always give them ways to apply God’s Word to their lives.
By the time our kids graduate out of Junior Church, they’ve learned how to sit in a service and get something out of the messages; that’s a life-long benefit!

Teen Ministries

Sunday Mornings

During Sunday School, our teens study books of the Bible and use other supplemental materials that address issues teen Believers face every day. Our goal is to train young people to live lives of personal holiness in a fallen world where temptations abound. We want teens to know the whole Gospel, and, once they’ve made decisions to follow Christ, that their salvation is secure – even when they face trials, temptations or persecution. Teen students are being encouraged to set Christ apart in their hearts and to obey His commands in order to cultivate holy lives.

Wednesday Evenings

Teens meet together each Wednesday from 6:00–7:00 pm for a challenge, prayer, and a game of some sort. This is a time for teens to meet new people, fellowship around the Word of God and be encouraged to finish the week in victory.

Adult Ministries

Sunday Morning Teaching

Sunday School isn’t just for kids! It’s for anyone who wants to study the Bible in a structured but less-formal atmosphere than a regular worship service. Questions and discussions are encouraged as our teachers work to develop an appreciation for God’s Word in their students

​Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting & Bible Study

Our mid-week service is a time for men and women to meet together to share prayer requests, to encourage one another in the Lord and to study God’s Word together.
