Children's Ministry

Children's Worship
Age appropriate Worship Service for Children ages 4-11. Children exit the sanctuary at the conclusion of the "Story Box" during our Early Worship Service (8:20am-9:20am) and meet for Children's Worship in Room 117. This year after Children's Worship (9:20am) we will have a supervised "recess" time on the playground while weather permits and an indoor location when it does not. Children's Sunday School classes will start at 9:40am, Adult Sunday School starts at 9:30am. 

Fall 2017-Spring 2018: THE STORY!
Be sure to buy your books and read ahead at home. The reading schedule is posted on the bulletin board each week and is on the bookmark that comes with your books.
NOTE: Children's Worship will follow a week behind Sanctuary worship and Sunday School.


This past summer in Children's Worship we learned about 
"Who, Why, and How We Worship!"
Below are links to the content of the lessons and any resources that were used in preparing the lesson or that might give you more information. 
I hope this will be useful for review at home especially before 
children will be with you in the sanctuary for worship: 
December 17, 24, and 31!
NOTE: Unfortunately I (Tracee) am not web-site development savvy enough to make these resources and lessons appear in any kind of beautiful order. I hope the titles will be sufficient to help you find what resources listed go with which lessons. You will have to start from the bottom of the list where you can find lessons 1-9 in reverse order.  Also note that the written lessons contain more/different material and detail than we had time to cover in Children's Worship--but we tried to cover at least the main ideas in each lesson and add in cool Ninja Karate illustrations whenever possible.

Sunday School

Children's Sunday School will start at 9:40am this year, this will allow for a 20 minute supervised "recess" between Children's Worship and Sunday School. We will have recess on the church Playground when weather permits and indoors when it does not.  See the church calendar for dates. NOTE: Adult Sunday School starts at 9:30am in Fellowship Hall.  PLEASE make sure to have a responsible adult sign children out of Sunday School at 10:30am, unless other arrangements have been made with the Teachers, this is an important safety and security measure.
