For us Children’s Church is the most important time of the week. Just as in the adult area, we believe that the Children’s Church hour is the time when relationships are built and life changing discipleship happens. Children meet together for their own worship and lessons at 10 am. Music, crafts, videos and Bible stories are integrated into our curriculum. On the first Sunday of the month, we join the adults in taking communion in the sanctuary. The love of giving and sharing is instilled in the children and they participate in mission projects during the year.
We offer a Kids Club from September to June, on the last Saturday of the month from 10 am to 2 pm. We use the same type of curriculum as Children’s Church, but when the weather is nice we also plan outside activities. We have a beautiful fenced in playground for the children to use. Lunch is provided at our Community Café, which integrates the children with our senior citizens, which is enjoyed by all.
Vacation Bible School
At the end of July we have a themed Vacation Bible week running from 5 to 8pm, which includes a meal. There is music, crafts, storytelling and outside activities. This event is open to all in the community. The theme this year was “To Mars and Beyond.”
Children meet together for their own worship and lesson at 10am. Twice a year they present a musical program during the 10 am worship. In the summer we offer Vacation Bible School and the older youth help lead. The Children’s ministry also participates in mission work, collecting candy for the Friendly House, and raising money for the Heifer Project. The curriculum uses materials from Cokesbury, which integrates music, crafts and bible stories into our teachings.
For us Children’s church is the the most important time of the week. Just as in the adult area we believe that the Children’s church hour is the time when relationships are built and life changing discipleship happens. Our Children’s ministry teachers have prayed and prepared throughout the week in anticipation of your child’s arrival. Although we are always looking to improve our ministry we also know that children find comfort in consistency.
