We are having our annual First Date Banquet on October 24th. Young ladies bring your dads as a date & young men bring your moms as a date. We have been learning about manners in Next Generation, and this night is an opportunity for the kids to practice what they have learned. The First Date Banquet is usually for Kindergarten-6th, but since we had to reschedule it this year, many kids missed out on their last year. As a result, 7th graders are also welcome.
Click the here to RSVP. Please RSVP by October 11th.
Our Children's Ministry desires to partner with parents in leading children to KNOW, LOVE and SERVE Jesus Christ.
We understand that it is the responsibility of the child's parents or guardians to be their spiritual leader. We want to come alongside parents to encourage and equip them to be all that God desires for their homes.
Please take a moment and browse through some of the opportunities that exist that can help partner with your family.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 “And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart: And you shall teach them diligently to your children…”
NURSERY (Birth - 24 months)
The Lord continues to bless us with Infants, Crawlers and Toddlers who need the love of Christ. We realize the awesome responsibility we have in making an impact in the lives of these little ones. The nursery ministry enables the parents of these young children to become actively involved in Bible study and ministry. It also gives us the opportunity to show love, care, and compassion to each child at a very impressionable age. Childcare for this age group is provided for all weekly services (Both Sunday AM services, Sunday PM & Wednesday PM).
PRESCHOOL (2 yr olds - Preschool 4&5 yr olds)
The Preschool ministry provides parents a safe and loving childcare environment in which they can confidently place their children under the care of teachers who wish to show Christ's love. Preschool children can and are developing the foundational truths of God's character. The Sunday School time (9:00-9:55am) is focused intruction time that leads children through the Old & New Testament. The curriculum that is used is called Explore the Bible.
On Sunday mornings starting at 9:00 am we have Sunday School classes for all ages of children up to the 6th grade. In class, kids are taught the stories and truths of God’s Word in a fun, interesting, and age-appropriate manner.
EXPLORE THE BIBLE CIRRICULUM is used by every Sunday school class from infants to our Senior Adults. Read on to find out why we feel so strongly about this cirriculum...
How Does it Work
Explore the Bible is a book-by-book Bible study for small groups and Sunday school classes of all ages that takes participants deep into the context of God’s Word and challenges them to live it out in their own context. From preschool to adults, Explore the Bible presents a rich, age-appropriate study experience that pursues biblical context through a balanced study plan, engaging group discussion questions for every book of the Bible and it also challenges participants to live out biblical truths in their own context through clear application points in each session and a shared memory verse for groups and families in each session.
Pre-K Children’s Church (2 yr olds - Preschool 4&5 yr olds)
On Sunday mornings, preschool children can remain in the Sunday School classroom for Children’s Church. The Children’s Church team is made up of a team of weekly or rotating leaders that are committed to providing a Christ-like example for your child. Each volunteer has a background check. During the Children's Church hour, children participate in circle time, snack time, preschool choir, and free time for play in our play centers.
