Children’s Sermon – Sundays during the 8:30 Worship Service
Children ages 4 through second grade are dismissed after the hymn before the sermon and gather in the lobby to attend the children’s sermon. Our dedicated volunteers then lead them in a time of singing, bible study, and hands on activities that reinforce the lesson. We currently use a curriculum called The Gospel Project that walks kids throught the stories of the bible and points them to Jesus each week. Please sign your child into Children’s Sermon at the Kids Ministry station before the service begins.
Sunday School – 9:45 am
Sunday school provides a weekly time where kids feel cared for by their teachers and peers, where they can engage in the scriptures, and feel free to ask questions. Classes for ages 3 through 5th grade run throughout the school year. We are teaching from Great Commisssion Publications materials that thoroughly teach the truths and stories of the bible inviting kids to know Jesus.
Boys & Girls Clubs
Our Rocks and Gems clubs are for kids in grades 1 – 5. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Pizza is served beforehand beginning at 5:45pm. We would love you to join us.
Rocks is a club for boys designed to help them grow in their love and knowledge of God through learning the catechisms together. Boys in grades 1 and 2 will be lead through the Kids Quest curriculum learning the First Catechism while boys in grades 3 – 5 will use the New City Catechism. In addition to opening God’s word together, the boys let their competitive spirit fly during recreation. In the spring they also spend time building their own cars to participate in the famous pinewood derby. To participate in Rocks please register Here.
Gems is a club for girls designed as a fun and creatvie place to learn about the savior Jesus Christ. We do this by teaching them Catechism questions from both the New City Catechism and the First Catechism. At Gems the girls gather together for singing after which they separate by grade for Bible lessons, crafts and games. It’s a great place for girls to make friends, have a great time and implant the truth of God’s word into their hearts. To join our Gems club please register Here.
Your children’s safety is important to us. All our volunteers have been interviewed by our staff and have submitted state and national background checks. All children are required to be checked in and out of their program rooms while children in 2nd grade and under will be assigned an alphanumeric tag that parents will present at pick-up. We have a strict written safety policy which can be found here Download.
