We have a variety of Children’s Ministry events and programs throughout the year.
Sunday Morning Activities
Children 5 & under
Little Children’s Club [9:15-10:15 AM] nursery
Little Children’s Club is our version of Sunday School for children age 5 & under. We provide a unique way to introduce little ones to Jesus and His love. In ministering to all the needs of babies, toddlers and preschoolers, a foundation of trust is established between the church and parents. Our lessons are designed to give small children a first impression of their loving heavenly Father by focusing on Jesus and His love!
During Worship [10:15-11:30 AM] nursery
We provide a safe and caring environment for your precious little ones – birth through age 5. In the nursery we don’t just babysit; we begin to teach our small children about Jesus. Our nursery is staffed with qualified paid caregivers who are hired through the staff parish relations committee. In addition several qualified caregivers volunteer their time in our nursery. The nursery is conveniently located near the Sanctuary. Our lessons are different during Sunday School and Children’s Church during the 10:30 AM Worship.
Children in grades 1-5
Bible Club [9:30-10:15 AM] room 107
Bible Club is our version of Sunday School. We provide learning experiences connecting with multiple senses that engage the whole child in learning. This happens through creative activities, storytelling and learning games. Children use their Bibles with with each weeks Bible lesson. About half the year is spent in the Old Testament and half the year in the New Testament. Elementary-age kids are in a constant state of discovery, so just like Jesus, we use everyday things to teach important truths. Discovering the Bible this way is fun!
Children’s Church [10:30-11:30 AM] room 211
Our children participate in our 10:30 AM Worship for a few moments and then are invited up to hear the Children’s Message up front of the Sanctuary. Then children up to 5th grade are welcome to leave the Sanctuary to participate in child centered, faith-enriching activities. Children ages 2- kindergarten go to the nursery and children 1st through 5th grade go to room 211 of the education wing. After an engaging lesson children are escorted back to the Sanctuary to finish out worship with the entire congregation.
During Children’s Church we focus on three Basic Truths every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52.
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Sunday Evening for children
God Squad for 2nd-5th graders
God Squad offers an opportunity for youth in grades 2-5 to experience an incredible, personal friendship with Jesus through Biblical points, activities, games, and prayer. In addition, our children build lasting friendships with other Christians and work to make a difference within the church and the community.
