Children’s Ministry

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them, They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5)
 
We believe that children are a blessing and a heritage from the Lord. Parents are the ones whom God has placed as the primary spiritual influence and teachers in a child’s life. As a church body, we joyfully come alongside parents.  We encourage them in the importance of their work of instructing their children in righteousness and fostering their own children’s worship of our great and mighty God.
 
During our Sunday morning worship service, we encourage families to worship together. We also offer the following ministries to children on Sunday mornings.

Sunday School

Four- and five-year-old children learn about God’s glorious deeds and His mighty power through the “He Established a Testimony” curriculum (published by Children Desiring God). The lessons move sequentially through the Old Testament. (Children’s Sunday School is not held during the summer months.)
 
Additionally, older children are welcome to join their parents upstairs for adult Sunday School.

Nursery

We provide care for infants and young toddlers during our corporate worship service. We minister to our youngest ones through playing, singing, and sharing simple Bible truths.
 

Preschool

We teach our two-, three-, and four-year-old children about God’s power and truths through simple Bible stories using “A Sure Foundation” curriculum (published by Children Desiring God). During this class time, while the sermon is being preached upstairs, we encourage children’s worship through singing, talking to God in prayer, and playing together in God-glorifying ways.

Children’s Worship

We teach our elementary-aged children about God’s covenant with His people through Bible reading and lessons focused on the Old Testament, beginning in Genesis. Children have the opportunity to read the Bible for themselves and to discuss Bible truths with their teachers.  Memory work during class includes Scripture verses, the Ten Commandments and the books of the Bible.
