Our Children’s Ministry consists of a nursery at 10:00am for our youngest, and two classes for the 10:00am service. Children’s 1 is for preschool through 2nd grade and Children’s 2 is for 3rd through 5th grade. The Children’s 2 class begins directly after the worship and Children’s Sermon. We do not set a definitive age on our classes. We recognize that each child progresses through developmental stages at his or her own rate, and we leave it to parental discretion as to when children are ready to be totally involved in the larger family integrated worship service. We are always eager to speak with parents about any of their concerns.
We are very blessed to have talented and committed leaders for our classes and nurseries. Our teachers and volunteers are ready to pour into your children’s lives with Godly love, wisdom, and understanding. We are so thankful for the talents they share! Our Grace Kids Ministry table provides the kids who worship with our congregation a bag that contains kids’ bible books, crayons, and pencils along with a sermon inspired kids bulletin with puzzles, games and coloring pictures.
We hold an Easter coloring contest for our Easter service with every child winning a chocolate treat and a small stuffed animal. Nine additional prizes are given for the top coloring pictures in three different age groups. We are so privileged to be able to show love to the youngest of our church in representation of the great love He has shown us!
We celebrate the Christmas season with our church family, from the youngest to the oldest, performing a fun, scriptural Christmas play. This time of celebration embodies our philosophy of Family Integrated Worship. It is a special time of reflection and celebration in how much we have to be thankful for because of His great love for us!
Mark you calendars in early June for our annual Gospel Light Vacation Bible School! Our children learn more about Jesus and living for Him with scripture learning through amazing songs, crafts, bible stories, games and snacks! It is fun-filled evening event for our kids!
Other celebrations we host through the year include family swimming parties and various celebrations to mark milestones in biblical learning.
