  • Christian teachers who are committed to the Lord and to loving children and teaching them Biblical truths
  • TWO teachers and/or helpers in each class
  • Parent sign in and out for classes Nursery to K-3
  • Asking parents to keep our classrooms safe and healthy by keeping their children home if they are ill

EVERY STORY MATTERS

We offer classes for every age group and seek to minister to kiddos of all backgrounds and needs. Our curriculums are centered around knowing and building relationship with Jesus through the teaching of His Word. Below is more information about each of our children’s classes.

NURSERY

Our Nursery is here to care for infants and toddlers through two years of age. It is our priority to model the heart and loving arms of Jesus and be a safe place for your babies. Our volunteers are amazing and our babies love them.

Each week, your babies will have a playtime, a healthy snack, and a Hands-On-Bible lesson including things to touch and activities such as songs, rhymes, and prayers.

Parents are welcome to stay with your babies so that you and your child can get to know us. We also have a “cry room” with audio access to the service as well as a CHANGING STATION complete with huggies and wipies.

3-K

Our 3-K class is for 3, 4, and 5 year olds. 3 year olds must be potty trained and able to communicate.

“The Jesus Storybook Bible” curriculum is taught so that our kiddos learn “to find Christ in all the scriptures and discover that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the very beginning.” The class time makes room for a variety of activities such as sharing their “news”, praying, snacking, crafting, singing and learning memory verses.

We follow Jesus’ example to welcome children to come to Him and we are seeing Him work in the hearts of our 3-K kids. We have had some tender prayer times, passionate worship times, and even a Storehouse Ministry birthed in the heart of one of our former 3-Ker’s. Pretty awesome.

Kids Church

Our KC class is for 1st – 5th grades, ages 6 by August – 10 by August

“The Jesus Storybook Bible” curriculum is taught so that our kiddos learn “to find Christ in all the scriptures and discover that all God’s revelation has been about Jesus from the very beginning.” The class time makes room for a variety of activities such as sharing their “news”, praying, snacking, crafting, singing and learning memory verses.

The kids are encouraged to memorize God’s Word, to pray and to discover and use their gifts weekly in the classroom. We are still growing to develop opportunities for our kids to use their gifts. Some examples so far are:

  • · Leading and choreographing songs for worship
  • · Playing instruments during worship
  • · Serving in class by running power point or a game, passing the offering plate or the snacks
  • · Teaching the rules or part of the lesson
  • · Greeting
  • · Giving announcements
  • · Praying for one another
  • · Sharing the Gospel on outreach to our community

The kids are taught that they are the “church” today and are not too young for the Holy Spirit to speak to them and use them for God’s Kingdom purposes.
