Coming This Fall
This Fall our After School Adventure Program (ASAP) will be participating in a program created by Group, Faith Weaver Friends. Faith Weaver Friends is all about well, Friends. Kids will apply each week’s Bible Point to their lives in ways that relate to their peers. They discover what it really means to serve each other. With Jesus at the center, kids connect to God and each other through a variety of fun activities which include: Bible stories, games, snacks, projects, music and a surprise station weekly. ASAP will be Tuesdays from 3:00-5:00 pm starting September 13, 2016. Elementary school age children, grades K thru 5th, ages 5-12 are invited to join us for fun and fellowship!
The mission of the Children’s Ministry is to work with children with the aim of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Our method is to nurture children in the love of God in a caring and affirming environment. Reflecting God’s love, we will teach children about God, lead children to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, encourage children to grow in his likeness, and be a living example of God’s love in their lives.
Preschool – First Grade Sunday School is held each Sunday morning at 10 am in the preschool area of the Sanctuary building on the ground floor. Angie Williams and Emily Rule work with this group. Parents are welcome to come sit in with your children until you are comfortable to leave them for this hour.
Older Children’s Sunday School is held at 10 am each Sunday morning. This group meets in the children’s room on the ground floor of the Sanctuary Building. Heidi Rule leads this group. Parents are welcome to sit in with the group.
A Nursery is provided for bed babies through toddlers for the 11 am Sunday Worship with trained volunteer workers dedicated to caring for your special one(s) as if they were their own. At the current moment we do not have any children of the bed baby age.

Extended Session is available for ages 3-first grade during the 11 am worship. Children are invited to attend the 11 am worship service and stay through the Children’s Time in the order of service. Then, children my go to the Extended Session with the Children’s Workers for the remainder of the service time. The children will be taken to the Preschool Room on the Ground Floor of the Sanctuary Building. Parents are welcome to join their children for this session. At the end of the service, parents will collect their children at the Extended Session Room.

Seasonal Activities are held for the children during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter that include games, mission activities, and lessons from the Bible appropriate to that time of the Christian year. Fall and Summer activities are also planned and enjoyed including carnivals, field trips and special activities for those times of year.
