Jesus loves children. When the disciples tried the shoo them away, Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these" (Matthew 19:14). Children's ministry is important to us. On Wednesday nights from September through April we start together as teams at 6:00 PM in the sanctuary and then break in to groups for age-appropriate discipleship activities. On Sunday mornings, kids spend partial time in the service and partial time in kids worship. From time to time, special activities break up the usual schedule for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, and Easter.
Elements - this exciting time happens during our worship service. Kids go to their own area after a period of time, where they learn about an essential element from the Bible. This happens after our children's chat, and includes singing, videos, Bible study, and in-depth questioning.
Our Wednesday night program is called Connect! It meets from 6:00-7:30. This is for our preschool age children to our 5th grade students. Here, we sing, play games, and grow closer to God. This year we are studying the Heart of God. We are studying God's heart and how we can reflect it everyday. How can you Connect?
Note: Connect is on break with the school year until September
