We offer a Christian Education program for children from nursery to middle school age. We share the love of Jesus Christ with the children while teaching them the Bible and nurturing their spiritual growth.

Vacation Bible School
We offer Vacation Bible School (VBS) and invite children in Malden and beyond to come share the good news of Jesus. A dedicated team of adults and youth give their time to help teach the children about the love they can find in Jesus. VBS provides fun and spiritual growth through fellowship, music, crafts, snacks, mission projects, games and Bible stories.
Here are some pictures from 2009's Vacation Bible School.
Tween Team & Youth Group
We offer a tween team (grades 3-6) and a youth group (grades 7-12), designed to provide a fun environment in which youth can grow in Christian love and commitment. The youth group provides numerous activities, events and small groups to give kids a chance to learn, grow, strengthen their faith, and make friends.
