Children's Ministry

  
 
 
 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

Welcome

Childrens Ministry activities are available for children ages 2 and up.  Children are encouraged to bring friends to share in the fun. These fellowships grow friendships and faith through crafts, games and playtime.

Please check our Events Calendar for Upcoming Childrens Fellowship activities.

Children's Sunday School

Sunday School meets from 9:45-10:45 a.m. for our children of all ages, even our Toddlers.  Our Classes are divided according to age and grade.
  

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is held each summer and involves lots of children and workers.  Time is spent in learning activities that are designed for children who are at least three years old.  VBS is a highlight of the summer for many children and provides wonderful opportunities for youth and adults to serve in the Children's ministry.  

Children’s Fellowship 

“Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6, NIV

·         For children in 1st through 5th grade

Chimes for children in grades 2 – 5
Pat Shrader does a wonderful job teaching these children how to read music by ringing chimes. We need at least 8 children to have a chime choir, so come and bring a friend on the 11th to see if they might enjoy this group. We rehearse from 4:00 to 5:00 on Sunday afternoons. Please consider our chime program when scheduling your children’s activities!
 
Tintinnabulations
There are some changes for this group this year. We want to make this into a stronger choir so we are asking all youth and any adults who would like to try ringing bells but may not have a lot of experience to join us. Since our youth program has been extended, we will now meet from 6:30 to 7:15p.m.on Sunday evenings. If you are interested but don’t have a musical background, have no fear. We will teach you how to read and ring!
 
Cherubs
We encourage all our children from around 3 years old - kindergarten to participate in Cherubs. We learn songs, listen to Bible stories, have a craft time, and eat dinner together. We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Parents and Grandparents are welcome. A few extra hands are appreciated with this group. Please join us and bring a friend from school or your neighborhood. 
 
 Angel Choir and Treble Clefs (Grades 1-5)
These choirs work on the same material, but meet at different times. This gives the parents an option to come at 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays for Angels or 5:00 – 6:00 on Sunday afternoons for Treble Clefs. Dinner is served only on Wednesday nights. Both choirs learn songs, some music reading, sing in our worship service, and perform a musical play in December and in June. This year’s musical will be on December 18th at 7:00 p.m. Come and join the fun in learning “Dude You Hear What I Hear?”
