CHILDREN AND FAMILY MINISTRIES

Children are such an important part of the life of our church!  We have a variety of opportunities for children and families to come together in worship, education and faith formation, mission, and fellowship.  Our goal is to help our very youngest members grow in faith and discipleship for the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

  • Twos - Room 12

Wednesdays - Beginning again January 9th from 6:15 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.

We carefully and prayerfully hire staff to provide a warm and caring environment where your children will experience the love of Christ through human hands.  A series of references and background checks are performed on every person we hire.

Your child will have an opportunity to play with other children their own age, learn about God through an age-appropriate craft or activity, munch on a yummy snack of cheerios and water, and if the weather is nice, play outside on our playground! 

 

LITTLE CHURCH

Sundays during 11:00 a.m. Worship (except the 1st Sunday of each month)

Worship is the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for God.  This can be a very natural concept for children, but often children need help preparing to participate in the prayers, creeds, and hymns of corporate worship.  Following the Children’s Time in “Big Church," 4 and 5 year old children are invited to join Adult Volunteers in LM 306 where they will engage with scripture and stories (to serve as a sermon), a musical response (to serve as a final hymn), creeds and prayers, and a final prayer (to serve as a benediction).

SUNDAY SCHOOL   

Sundays (September 9th - May 2018) 9:45 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. beginning in LM 306

In the Children’s Sunday School, we use a curriculum that aligns with the Revised Common Lectionary text in an effort to remain consistent with the season of the Church as well as our worship schedule. This provides children with reinforcement of scripture through the lessons, readings, and sermons on any given day. 

During the summer months (June-August), we divide the classes differently from week to week.  Our teachers and assistants also vary from week to week.

During the school year (September 9, 2018 - May 19, 2019), we have classes for each grade level to attend with consistent teachers from week to week.  These teachers and assistants volunteer to lead the classes for the entire school year and are able to walk their students through scriptures following the church calendar.

DISCIPLESHIP JUNIOR

Wednesdays, Beginning again January 9th  6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. 

Discipleship Junior is an opportunity for children (4K - 5th grade) to dig deeper into bible study.  Through crafts, stories, and games, children study scriptures and learn how to become better disciples of Christ.  We begin and end in the Gym each week. This Spring we will study the Beatitudes and the Lord’s Prayer.
