We seek to serve this mission in such a way that G.R.O.W.S. children by . . . .
Sharing Our Faith.
Reading God’s Word
Working to Serve Others
Take a look at how our program works . . .
Our newly renovated children’s wing is very exciting and better fits the needs of our Children. Theme rooms and inviting characters lead our children to their Bible study rooms where we strive to provide basic Bible based fundamentals.
We have dedicated our Children’s wing to the following themes:
INVITE— Matthew 22:9
Go to the street corners and INVITE to the banquet anyone you find….
INSPIRE—1 Thes. 1:3
..your endurance INSPIRED by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
ENTHUSE—2 Corinthians 9:2
..your ENTHUSIASM has stirred most of them to action.
If our children INVITE anyone to learn about God, then they will be INSPIRED by God and be filled with ENTHUSIASM for the Lord and thus ENGAGED in the spreading of the Love and Word of God through faith in His son Jesus Christ.
Sunday Bible Classes
We offer Bible classes for children from birth through the grade 4. Loving, Christian teachers present curriculum that is age appropriate and teaches children about faith through life application and basic Bible skills.
During worship service each Sunday, children age 3 years through Kindergarten are dismissed to a kidfriendly version of worship. Rotating teams of teachers present lessons in a variety of dynamic methods that make worship special for even the youngest child praising God. The two-year-olds also get an opportunity to worship in a kid-friendly environment with Toddler Time. This age group experiences worship through songs, Bible stories and guided playtime that help keep energetic little ones focused on learning while having a great time.
Wednesday Night Bible Exercise
Mid-week classes are also available. During this time our children experience the basic Bible fundamentals of Salvation, Ministry, Being a Christian with School Peers, Responsibilities as a Christian and Stewardship through study and physical activities. We have fun being Christians.
Our 5th and 6th graders attend “Momentum”—a class designed to help bridge the gap between childhood and adolescence. This pre-teen program combines Bible classes, service opportunities and Children’s and Youth Ministry activities together into lifechanging spiritual growth.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” - Matthew 19:14
