BIRTH THROUGH GRADE 5
Please note: we are a peanut-free facility.
Our goal is to provide children with purposeful, biblical teaching with elements of joy weaved into our time together to make sure the main points STICK with them beyond their class time each week! We will lead kids to KNOW Jesus and His love first for themselves, then to GO to their world and SHOW who Jesus is in their every-day encounters.
Our plan is always to partner with parents as they train their children in godliness at home. We will often send home sheets describing what has been taught and how parents can emphasize those key points during the week in family devotion times. This particular school year we will be emphasizing to the children that WE ARE THE CHURCH! WE (children included) must understand that God has designed us all to work together to build his Kingdom. We ARE God’s people today! Kids don’t have to wait until they “grow up” to do big things for God! We strive to always keep in mind that we are all a part of THE great big plan God has for his people to change the world! When we come together as Christians, we must remember that we are truly God’s CHURCH! We a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession!
Birth-5th grade meets together
K-5th graders meet together for worship and then divide into small groups.
*On the first Sunday of each month, we encourage our Kindergarten through 5th graders to check in and sit with their families through the communion service. This provides a unique opportunity for parents to train their children the “why” we do communion.
Wednesdays, 6:30-7:45 PM
Our Children’s Ministry is for well children. We love children, but we do not have the facilities or staff to give the separate, special care that sick children need. If a child has or develops any of the following, we cannot accept him/her into Children’s Ministry Classes.
A child who has been ill may return to our classes if he/she is recovering from an illness which is usually contagious, but the doctor says is no longer contagious, or he/she has been on medication for at least 24 hours.
