Many wonderful volunteers share in a team approach to children’s ministry. From infancy to 5th grade, it is important that children learn that we are created by God, He loves us so much that He sent His son, Jesus, to die for us, and that as Christians, we share His love with others. It is also important that children begin gaining knowledge of the Bible and the guidance and assurance it offers. Volunteers are always needed to help nurture our children in the Christian faith.

Wednesday Night Kids
Children in grades K – 5th are encouraged to attend the Wednesday Night Bible Study series, “Come and See, Walk with Me” at 6:15 pm in the Asbury Building Children’s Wing.  Each month, we explore a Children’s Bible story and go deeper into what the story means.  Children are creatively engaged, both physically and intellectually!  We keep the children active on a weekly basis using the following format:

Week 1 :    Bible story time – children will be read a Bible story and then get the opportunity to dramatically act it out.  Story characters come to life!

Week 2:  Arts & Crafts time – children will work on arts and crafts for props to be used in week 4.

Week 3:  Science – children will learn how science relates back to their Bible study story as they get an opportunity to engage in science experiments and object lessons.

Week 4: Gym time – children will meet in the Family Center building, inside the gymnasium, where they will summarize what they have learned through trivia and games.

There is nursery provided for infants and toddlers in the lower level of the Asbury Building.  Toddler room is set up with activity centers to engage your 2, 3, and 4 year old’s.

Easter Butterfly Release

II Corinthians 5:17 tells us, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are becoming new.” During the Lenten season children are given caterpillars and witness the amazing transformation that takes place, symbolic of Christ’s resurrection from death. Children return chrysalises to the church and place them in butterfly boxes. Butterflies are released on Easter, April 1, at a church-wide celebration of Christ’s triumph over death.

 

Pockets for Children
