Because the family is the foundation of society, we want to help build strong and godly families. Our children’s ministry should always support and supplement what happens at home, and not replace it. We want to help equip the parents (especially the fathers, where one is present) to “train up a child in the way in which he should go” (Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4).

Journey Kids every Wednesday night!

6:30 - 8:00PM

JOURNEY is a weekly Bible Study for children in Pre K - Fifth grade.  We gather on Wednesday evening at 6:30 in the chapel, and dismiss at 8:00.

 

CURRENT STUDY for JOURNEY KIDS: 

"What a God"  Study through the book of John.  JOURNEY through scripture to find the truth that directs us on the course of life.  Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."   

 

The children are engaging in worship, Bible verse meaning and memorization, as well as game and snack time.  A Bible lesson is given each week with review time.  The children are learning to let God use them to meet a friends' need, count on God's peace in any situation, witness to their friends, trust God's power and demonstrate God's love to others.  The Children's Ministry including JOURNEY love this opportunity to be a part of the family's desire to raise up leader's to reach the world through Jesus Christ.  Thank you parents and family leaders for allowing us this awesome privilege.  

Sundays

Children  at 9:00am and 11am in the Preschool building

1. Ages 0-2 years “Explore the Bible” (Age appropriate)

Childcare provided in the Preschool Building all year for babies under age 3 during all services.

 

2. Ages 3 years – 5th grade  “Explore the Bible” (Age appropriate lessons and classes)

Registration is at the  children ministry station by the front door to the worship center.  Most Children’s ministry leaders will have on a t shirt identifying them as such. You’ll receive a sticker for your child, and for the adult responsible. New Comers will need to fill out paper work so be sure to have time for that. Then someone will announce for all children ages 3 and up to go to Children’s Ministry; usually just after offering is taken.  Everyone is free to keep their children in the service if they like.  All children line up in the foyer to go with the leader of their age group safely across to the Preschool Building.  Parents are not required to walk with them.  All children’s ministry leaders are back ground checked.  After the service pick up your child with the appropriate sticker in the preschool building.  The preschool is locked at all times.

Nursery (0-2 yrs)
The goals of our nursery are two-fold. First, the nursery is a ministry of Christ-like love and nurturing to infants. Second, it is an introduction to age appropriate Bible verses. The children who attend nursery will be given the opportunity to hear God’s Word through pictures and age appropriate translations of the Old and New Testaments, as well as have God’s Word reinforced through worship and interactive play.
Early Childhood
The goal of our Early Childhood ministry is to give children a life-long impression of the heart of God and what He has designed for their future. We are together to engage in worship during the worship service. After worship we give each child the opportunity to learn about the Bible from the Old and New Testaments, brought to life by reading and skits. We create community through small group activities and age appropriate crafts.
