Children's Ministries

CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

Our Goal

Children have a special place of honor in God’s Kingdom. Jesus demonstrates this by welcoming children with open arms. Our desire as a church is to demonstrate Jesus’ love for children in tangible and spiritual ways through all of our Children’s Ministries.

Our Example

One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so that He could touch them and bless them, but the disciples told them not to bother Him. But when Jesus saw what was happening, He was very displeased with His disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Then He took the children in His arms and placed His hands on their heads and blessed them. (Mark 10:13,14,16)

SUNDAY SCHOOL

A fun and educational time, Sunday School meets from 9:15 – 10:15 AM on Sundays during the school year. All classes are team taught by warm, nurturing teachers. Lessons center around a Bible story and kids are actively taught in the Bible. The curriculum is designed to reach all types of learners and incorporates activities and music along with Bible memorization and review games.

Class Room
2 & 3 Year Olds 203 – “Nursery”
4 Year Olds – 1st Grade 111 – “Jungle Room”
2nd – 6th Grade 112 – “Ocean Room”

WORSHIP ARTS MINISTRIES FOR CHILDREN

Children in grades 2 – 6 are invited to participate in the worship life of our congregation by using the artistic gifts God has given them (in music, drama, and the visual arts). Every other year, a larger children’s theater project is taken on, such as:

  • The Horse and His Boy – 2012 (by C. S. Lewis)
  • Adventures in Odyssey – 2010
  • The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe – 2008 (by C. S. Lewis)

NURSERY

We will lovingly care for your infants and toddlers (toddlers up to age 3) during our morning worship service and Sunday School in our team-staffed nurseries.

Our vision statement: “Sprouting Christ centered lives through worship, spirit-filled activities, and love.”

KID’S BIBLE CAMP (Vacation Bible School)

Our Kid’s Evening Bible Camp (VBS)  is a high-energy 4-day event this year for our community. It’s held during summer vacation. All four days are filled with fun activities; story time, singing, crafts, games, drama, and great snacks. All children are welcome ages 5 – 11.

KING'S KIDS

Kings Kids is a children’s ministry program for ages 4 through 4th grade that is available all year long.  Children will worship and learn about God on their level by incorporating Bible and object lessons, crafts, music, and games.  The children are dismissed shortly after the worship songs during the church service, and will be escorted downstairs by a team of teachers.  Children ages 4 through kindergarten must be picked up by a parent immediately after service in room 111, and children 1st through 4th grade should be picked up in room 112.

MORNINGS WITH MOMMY

A faith-based playgroup open to all mothers in our church and community with young children ages 5 and under. We meet the first and third Friday of each month from 9:30 – 11:30 AM in our nurseries.

Mornings with Mommy allows children to actively engage in free play, participate in circle/story time, sing songs, make crafts, and eat snack while giving their moms the opportunity to fellowship and support one another.

The playgroup starts in September and ends in June.

BOYS BRIGADE

Boys Brigade is designed to engage men in becoming spiritual fathers to their sons and to the fatherless. Our weekly meetings offer men the opportunity to spend dynamic, profitable time teaching boys God’s Word.

Boys Brigade is for kids and for men! It’s an investment with the men and boys that will pay rich dividends for years to come.

Every week we conduct simple projects and games to help men and boys build relationships in a fun, comfortable atmosphere. Relationship along with memorization and life application of God’s Word facilitates the discipleship of boys, creating a growth experience for both the men and the boys.

Boys Brigade meets on Monday nights at 7:00 pm here at the church.

The program has three age group levels:

  • Tree Climbers (Grades 1 & 2)
  • Stockade (Grades 3 – 6)
  • Battalion (Grades 7 – 12)

SPECIAL EVENTS

Throughout the year, we have special functions for our children ranging from Veggie-Tales movie nights to seasonal festivals. Stay tuned for announcements concerning these fun, family-geared nights.
