Our Children's Ministry seeks to bring children into age-appropriate groups where they can belong to the family of God, grow in their relationship with Jesus, learn to serve, and then share Christ in the world! We strive to do this through our weekend programs like Children's Church, God'z Kidz, our various activites and events for children, summer camps and Vacation Bible School. Children's Ministry covers ages from birth through 6th grade.If you have not registered your child with any of our children's programs for 2013-2014, please complete a registration form.
First Communion Training We have scheduled First Communion training for children and youth who have never taken communion. This training is designed to allow children to begin communion with an understanding of why we do it. Parents, if your child is at least 5 years old or older, and you think he or she is ready, please enroll them. Enrollment forms are available to download here and can be picked up at the church. For the 2014 First Communion training, there will be three classes held on Tuesdays: March 25th, April 1st, and April 8th, at 4:30 pm. During one of these classes, the children will make their own chalice. The cost of the training is $20 (to cover the cost of materials).
Sunday Morning Nursery Important Information for Parents The nursery is open on Sunday mornings during all services. We have a bonded and trained nursery attendant and children from infants to age 5 are welcome. We have begun to include a Bible story and Bible story DVD's, as a beginning to the children's Christian education. Parents are advised to sign their children in and out and to note the time of each. Children must be signed in by a either parent or other designated person over the age of 18.
Children's Church During our Sunday gatherings, we work hard to provide our kids with a safe, loving, fun-filled environment where they can connect with other kids and learn about Jesus in a meaningful, relevant way. Our goal for each weekend is to create an experience that is both educational and entertaining. We want to capture your child's imagination, intrigue them, and set them on a course of discovery. All activities, lessons, and stories are developed for the purpose of teaching your children about Jesus and helping them to develop a life-long, personal relationship with Him.
Children's Church begins promptly at 10:30 am, with music and an opening prayer. You can begin checking them in as early as 10:15 am. The children will then break off into their appropriate grade levels. This year, we have added a new curriculum especially designed for the 5th and 6th grade students! Also, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, children will join their parents in worship to hear a special children's message, receive Communion with their families and sing along to a family-friendly closing song.
God'z Kidz Every Thursday, 5:30 - 7:15 pm God'z Kidz is uniquely designed with your child in mind. Kids, four years old through sixth grade experience a safe, age-appropriate environment where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. Parents are asked to provide a kid-friendly meal each week. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level! New Song’s Thursday evening God’z Kidz program will continue through Thursday, May22nd.
