Children's Ministry

 AWANA

Wednesday Evenings 6:30-8:00 pm September-first week of May
 
          Cubbies (Ages 3-4)
 
The Cubbie program has a staff of people who work closely with the children as they work on their handbooks, do crafts, sing with great enthusiasm and have a gym/recreation time.
 
 
 
          Sparks (Grades K-2)
 
Our Sparks program has a staff of people who listen to verses, assist with handbooks, help with crafts and coordinate a game time for the children. Each week there is a Bible lesson taught as well as a time of singing.
 
 
 
          Truth & Training (Grades 3-5)
 
There is a crew of people interacting with our T & T group. They have a game time, handbook and learning time and council time which includes singing and biblical instruction. Each group has special outings throughout the year. There are also several opportunities for parents to enter into the excitement as well. Our annual Parent/Grandparent nights, AWANA Grand Prix and other events encourage parent involvement. Parents are always welcome to observe the programs in action.

Nursery
 
The nursery is available Sunday Mornings during the 10:45 am Worship Service.  One sign of a healthy church is a full nursery...and ours continues to grow!  Parents feel comfortable leaving their children in the nursery because they see the quality of the facility and the people who care for their children.
 
Sunday School
 
Preschool (ages 2-5)
Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am
 
Children enjoy coming to our pre-school department. They find a safe, child-centered environment, a loving , caring and committed staff, an exciting “hands-on” Bible lesson, creative songs with motions and lots of other fun things to do.
 
Grades K-5
Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am
 
As our children’s Sunday School begins you will hear the sound of children singing enthusiastically. They then break up into groups; each with a teacher who deeply cares about them as they study the Word of God together and make practical application to the lives of the children.
 
Morning Worship (ages 4-grade 4)
Sunday Mornings 10:45 am-12:00 pm
 
Pre-School and Son Shine City meet every Sunday Morning from 10:45 am –12:00 pm. Whether it is the activities, the great Bible lessons or the time of praise through singing and prayer, children love coming to Pre-School and Children’s Church. Each session is biblically based and teaches some aspect of Christ like character or biblical principle. The Pre-School group meets in the Pre-school classroom and the Son Shine City students begin with the adults in the auditorium and are dismissed from there about 11:10 am.
 
 
 
 
  
Son Shine City is held on Sunday morning from 10:45 am-12:00 pm for children K-5.
 
Agenda for Son Shine City:
10:45-11:10 am  Son Shine City begins in the auditorium with the adults
11:10—11:25 am Leave the auditorium to go to a Bible lesson and/or puppets
11:25—11:40 am Activity to enforce the lesson’s main idea
11:40—11:55 am Table time. This is when the children will break into different age groups. They will learn a memory verse, ask questions about the day’s lesson, give prayer requests and pray.
11:55—12:00 pm Dismissal to parents.
 
On special occasions, such as the Sunday before Christmas or Easter Sunday, there will be no children’s program. This will allow families to worship together. The Sundays when there is no children’s church program will be posted monthly.
 
 
  
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (Age 4-Grade 6)
Each year we have an exciting theme which is centered around dynamic Bible teaching, creative crafts, fun and inspiring songs and a service project which involves the children in some "friendly" competition. We have almost 100 workers throughout the week who volunteer a part of their summer in preparation and presentation of this powerful outreach ministry.
