Guided by God’s command in Deuteronomy 6 to teach our children His Word diligently in every realm of life, Children’s Ministry offers many opportunities for our children to grow in their faith. Beginning with God’s Word, the foundation for the life of a Christian, we learn how to know God and live in right relationship with Him. In Sunday School our children learn the Bible, in Children’s Church they learn to worship, and on Sunday evenings they memorize Scripture and learn the Catechism – a summary of what the Bible teaches. The benefit of participating in all of these is incalcuable in the life of a child (and his or her family). It builds a solid foundation for a life of faith.
Wednesday Nights offer a variety of opportunities for our children. During the school year, Children’s Choirs teach our children songs of faith and provide opportunities to participate in worship through singing. In Missions in May our focus is on others: missionaries, unreached people groups, and unbelieving friends. In our Summer Program, children learn more about what it means to live for Jesus at their age and stage.
Vacation Bible School is held the first full week of June. VBS is from 9:00 -11:30 a.m. Conducted by the members of the church and the Children’s Ministry Department, this week-long event is the highlight of the summer. It features Scripture, music, a skit, memory work, and crafts that are all theme-based. There is even time for snack and play!
The Communicant Class is for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who are interested in learning more about church membership. As Christian parents, our deepest longing for our children is for them to come to a saving knowledge of Christ. This is at the heart of the purpose of the Communicants’ Class. It is a means for your child to grow in their knowledge of the Lord and to equip you, as parents, to discern the readiness of your child to profess their faith publicly and become a member of the church.
