Cannon loves children! We have recently remodeled all of our childrenís classrooms, our facilities provide a bright fun learning environment! We offer AWANA children's ministry every Wednesday following the school calendar year. This is for children ages 3 through 12th grade. Each summer Cannon hosts an incredible VBS! It is open to children 3 years old through the 3rd grade. The children enjoy a week of Bible lessons, Bible verses, singing, crafts, snacks, and games. Many laborers are needed for this important event. This year we had over 100 children each night, we praise the Lord for His goodness to us!

Cannon sends out two 14 passenger busses each Sunday morning and Wednesday evening. To pick up children and adults for Sunday School and church. Bus drivers and workers are always needed in this important ministry of going into the highways and hedges. For many of the riders, it is their only opportunity to ever hear the gospel message.
Cannon has some elderly members who can no longer get out and come to church. It is a tremendous blessing to visit these members and brighten their day. Often they need assistance with doctor appointments or just someone to talk to.
Unity in the Community
Once a year, we have a big unity in the community festival at the central ball field which is located beside our church. We have inflatables, games, food, music and lots of fun! This is an important time to help unite every resident of our community and engage them with the gospel.
We believe the Lord Jesus has given His church a mission, that mission is to get the gospel out to our Jerusalem. We offer specific times to go out and share the love of Christ systematically with our community.
The Choir choir has over 40 members and is still growing. It is open to 8th graders and older. The choir sings for the AM worship services on Sunday and practices every Sunday afternoon at 4:30 PM. The choir also does special programs for Christmas and Easter.
Music helps prepare the heart for worship and each worship service at Cannon includes a musical special as a part of the service. Our music director is always looking for people who want to use their vocal or instrumental talents for the Lord.
