Children’s Ministry VISION: Partnering with families to train kids to love God and people. K.I.D.S. Church We have a nursery available for 0 – 3 yrs. during both services. Simple Bible truths are reinforced through song, story, and play. Kids pre-k – 1st grade meet downstairs for the entire hour. They participate in a fun lesson. Kids in 2nd – 5th grade will participate in the first 15 minutes of worship then be dismissed downstairs for an engaging Bible Lesson. Offered at both 9:00 & 10:30 a.m. service: To be checked in for children church; sit with their family, to be dismissed to class within 15 minutes of worship service. Each class has a take home paper. We encourage parents to read and review with their child. Children of any age are always welcome to stay in the worship service with their family. FAMILY WORSHIP SUNDAYS Several times a year we have a Family Worship Sunday. This Sunday the kids get to participate by helping out with the worship service. They stay with their family during the service the entire time. Kids will be given a packet to fill out with sitting with their parents. The packet will be about the lesson they went over in the children worship portion of the service. AWANA Kids Club Wed 6:20-8pm For Kids K-6th grade Bible Memory, Active Games, Bible Lessons, Prizes!

And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NLT) Build a friendship with each child and family and show them God’s love. Teach kids how to use the Bible and find verses. Encourage reading the Bible at home and memorizing Bible verses. Have a SAFE, welcoming, and FUN environment! Create opportunities for them to serve and give. Help kids see how God can use them NOW to bless others. “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” I Timothy 4:12 SAFETY: All Children’s Workers are required to fill out an application and agree to a background check to make sure they have no history of misbehavior relating to children.
