Kids Ministries

Nursery – Infant and Toddler

A nursery staffed by caring and loving people is available for children up to 3 years of age in the church basement for both morning and evening services. Our paging system allows staff to contact Parents/guardians during the service if necessary. Our nursery is located in the church basement.

Children’s worship

This curriculum, based upon the book Young Children and Worship, by Sonja Stewart and Jerome Berryman, gives young children the opportunity to experience the elements of worship presented in a way that is meaningful and understandable to them.

Children aged 3 through Kindergarten are dismissed from the morning service by the pastor and will then walk out with their leaders through the door at the front of the sanctuary. Parents must pick their children up following the service. The children will be split into two classrooms.

GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior)

GEMS, which stands for Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior, is a ministry for girls in 1st-8th grade. GEMS seeks to give the girls opportunity to discover more of God’s will through projects and crafts, learning to work together and creating friendships. Our goal is to bring girls into a living relationship with Jesus Christ so that they will love and serve him always. GEMS meet on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 6:30 in the church basement.

Cadets

Our Cadet group is a ministry for boys from 2nd grade to 8th grade. This ministry focuses on leading boys to Jesus Christ through Bible study and interaction between the counselors and the boys. Much time is spent together working on merit badges to learn life skills, crafts, and other activities including camping, a pinewood derby, tubing trips and more. Cadets meet on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 6:30 in the educational building.

Vacation Bible School

Every summer for one week our church has Vacation Bible School for children ages 4-5th grade. Children get to learn about Jesus through amazing bible stories, games, crafts, and snacks.

VBS registration will be open from May 1-May 31 for children aged 4 by June 1 to children entering 5th grade in the fall.

VBS is scheduled for June 12-15, 2017.
