Loving Children & Championing Healthy Families

Children’s Ministry

_

We love kids and our ministry exists to help them grow in their relationship with God and in their relationships with others.  We do this by providing engaging activities, biblically based learning, and healthy relationships.  We know that God has great plans for this generation of children and we want to be a part of what He is doing in and through them.

KidsQuest is a high-energy program that is lots of fun.  Kids will make new friends, grow through special compassion projects, and rotate through action-packed discovery centers where the Bible is reinforced through games, crafts, and activities.

Sunday Mornings

Small Groups from 9:30-10:45 a.m. for Kindergarten through 5th grade
This hour we use the Hands-On curriculum with one-point learning that helps kids remember what they’ve learned.  The hour is loaded with interactive teaching tools unique to the various age levels. There is active learning and life application that keeps kids’ attention.

Children’s Church from 11:30 – 12:10 for Kindergarten through 5th grade
Children are invited to the Breakaway Room to participate in a worship time designed just for them, while their parents take part in the worship service.  On fifth Sundays during the year, parents will gather their children after Sunday School and sit together with them in the worship service.   

KidsQuest

Missions

Our children have decided to invest personally in the lives of two children in need; Tricia is through Compassion International and Nimai is through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries.  The money that the children donate on a weekly basis allows Tricia and Nimai to receive opportunities and services to which most of the world’s poorest children do not have access. They are also being taught about Jesus.

So what can you do as a family to help support this commitment your kids have made?

First, take time to pray with your children for Tricia, Nimai, and their families.

Second, help remind your children to bring their dollar every month.

Third, our children have a wonderful opportunity to send words of encouragement that will make a big difference in the lives of Tricia and Nimai. These letters will reaffirm that someone in addition to their family really cares about them.
