Children's Ministry

 

Weekly Programs

It is our desire to build a solid Biblical foundation for our children so they will come to experience God’s amazing love for themselves, and pursue an intimate relationship with Jesus. We offer children’s programs for children age six weeks  through  5th grade.

Sundays

Children ages 6 weeks - 36 months: Nursery Care 9:15 a.m. -10:45 a.m

Children 3 years through 5th Grade: 9:30 - 9:45 a.m. Children attend praise and worship with their families in the Sanctuary for the first 15 minutes of the service. Children are then dismissed for their classes at about 9:45 a.m. 
 

 

Program Descriptions for the 9:30 Contemporary Service (class starts at 9:45)

Our Sunday School classes at 9:30 are divided into 5 age groups, each with its own volunteer lead teacher. Most children attend Sunday School at 9:30 though we do offer a one-room class at 11:00 for all ages.

9:15-10:45: Nursery open for children ages 6 weeks-36 months.

1st Service at 9:30Children worship with families in sanctuary for 15 minutes of praise and music. Children are then dismissed for class around 9:45

 Age 3-4 yr class Rm. 201 using Gospel Light curriculum. Children come to circle time to hear a Bible story,  puppet show and singing.  A large group activity following the story reinforces the lesson.

Gr 2-4th in Rm. 216 teaches the Bible stories chronologically throughout a 3-year cycle.  Your child will have a complete and thorough Biblical foundation by attending this class.


Gr. 5-6th in the Millwood Community Center (MCC).  Pre-teens apply their knowledge of Bible Stories toward their current lifestyle/choices.  This class teaches kids how to apply and live out God’s Word in their everyday life.

Program Description for the 11:00 Traditional service 

Parents drop their children off in Rm. 211 before the service starts.  This is a one room combo class where a Bible Story is taught for all ages of children up to 5th grade.  The attendance at this class is much lower than at our 9:30 a.m. service.
