Want to Get Involved With CEC?

“At the heart of the Children’s Equipping Center is our mandate to encourage, teach, and equip children to be devoted disciples of Jesus. Our desire is to see our children enjoy deep fellowship with God and others. Our hope is that they will choose to love, serve, and obey Him with all their heart as they grow in the knowledge and love of God. This wouldn’t be possible without an army praying and the help of individuals like you.”

Lenny & Tracy La Guardia

If you would like to volunteer and work with CEC, attend an Equipping the Smaller Saints on–ramp. This class communicates the vision, values, and program practices of the ministry. It is offered the third Saturday of every month. See our church bulletin for exact location and times.

After completing the on–ramp class, the individual will receive an appointment with a CEC senior leader where the screening process will begin.
