We are passionate to teach children and encourage them to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a love for God’s word. Our activities will provide a space for children and their families to go deeper….
DEEPER IN THE BIBLE
Children are taught the truths in the Bible in a way they understand; the lessons are reinforced through crafts, games, drama (acting out the story), songs, and more! Our desire is that the Word of God would become an intrinsic part of the child’s life.
DEEPER IN RELATIONSHIPS
Our staff and volunteers foster an environment where meaningful relationships are encouraged and sustained. Children will also be encouraged in their own relationship with God, learning they can trust Him and His Word in every aspect of their lives.
DEEPER IN RESPONSE
Children will be encouraged to respond to God’s Word in some of the following ways:
- Praying with other children
- Learning Bible verses
- Completing take-home materials with parents
- Participating in age-appropriate service opportunities
INFANT & TODDLER
We regretfully do not have volunteers in the children’s nursery at this time. Families are welcome to either keep their young children with them during service, or use the nursery facilities as needed. Simple activities, toys, music, and places to rest are available.
SUNDAY CHILDREN’S CHURCH
We teach Pre-K through 5th grade age children using curriculum designed especially for their age group. Bible truths are taught multi-sensory experiences, which promotes the Word of God becoming an intrinsic part of the child’s life.
CHILDREN AGES 3 – 6
Younger children are welcomed to class at the beginning of the Worship Service, just before 10am. Immediately after Worship Service, children are returned to their families for a time of fellowship and refreshments. Children are then welcomed back to the classroom for the Sunday School time, which usually ends around 12:30p.
2ND – 5TH GRADE STUDENTS
Older children are encouraged to join the Worship Service with their families. There is a child-friendly bulletin available for them to use to follow along with the sermon and worship times. After the Worship Service and fellowship time, all children young and old are invited to the classroom for Sunday School.
THURSDAY NIGHTS KIDS CLUB
Boys and girls, from potty trained 3 years old to 5th graders, are welcome to attend. We meet Thursday nights from 7-8 pm. Families may come at 6:30pm for an optional fellowship and refreshment time, and older family members may enjoy other programming on Thursday evenings. Please sign up for our parent emails for updates, including schedule changes, by contacting our Children’s Ministry Director at email@example.com.
Kids Club supports parents as they develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Children who come are encouraged to memorize Bible verses, play games, and read the Bible, learning a love for God’s Word together. Please come to the Fellowship Hall, located on the 2nd level of the Church.
SUMMER PROGRAM 2021
We are learning about the character of God this summer! Join us at any time in the summer for MYSTERY ISLAND by Answers in Genesis! We meet on Thursday evenings from June 10th to August 26th (same times as our usual Kids Club programming; see above). We will be meeting outdoors in our courtyard weather permitting. Enter from the wooden gates on the south side of the building. To register your child or to volunteer, contact the Children’s Ministry Director.
The goal with our summer program is to show is show children that God’s Word connects to every area of life, and that its message is true and good. Our volunteers’ enthusiasm will be contagious; children will be excited to participate in the games, songs, lessons, art, and science, as every element reinforces the main truth of each evening.
