CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

 
“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them,
for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14 ESV

We are now offering electronic check-in for Sunday School. You can check in upstairs at Kids Corner in the foyer or downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. Sunday School teachers will take their classes to Kids Worship at the end of the Sunday School hour, so parents will not need to pick them up.  Those not attending the 10:15 service, need to pick-up their kiddos from Sunday School no later than 10:05. Please check out the Church Building Map to see where these classes are located.
 

Kids Worship

Kids ages 3 years old – 4th grade (5th graders are also welcome) will join us for Kids Worship during the entire 10:15 service. Sunday School kids will be brought directly to Kids Worship. All other kids can check-in at the table in the Fellowship Hall before going into the Kids Worship room (Room F). Parents are asked to pick-up children immediately following the worship service in the Fellowship Hall area in the basement (for ages 1st-4th grade) and Room D (for PreK & K). We are currently in the Elevate series called “Upside Down Town” in Kids Worship. 
 

Kids Club

We offer a high-energy, fun-filled, Christ-centered program where kids worship, serve, learn, and play together. We have Kids Club on Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm as part of Wednesday Night Live. All kids ages 3 years old through 5th grades are invited. Nursery is provided for infants-2 years old for parents who attend a Wednesday Night Bible Study. The Spring Session has ended. We will resume on Wednesday, September 5th through November 14th. We’re continuing the Gospel Project curriculum and just completed “God Delivers”, where kids learned that God follows through on his promises. We collected non-perishable items for the Mercer County Food Pantries as well as change for our Safe Family fundraiser. 
 
If you have an iPhone or iPad you can download the Family App to get the Bible memory music & Devos about the lessons we’re learning in Kids Club. This session you’ll want “God Delivers.” Apps costs $1-3 depending on your device.
 
 

Secret Keeper Girls Club

A Secret Keeper Girl is one who keeps the deepest secrets of her beauty for her future husband. Also, she knows that there aren’t any secrets she can’t share within the safety of her relationship with her mom. And the coolest thing about a Secret Keeper Girl is that she is a masterpiece created by God. (*The secret that she is keeping is her purity.) This is a local group that uses SKG materials. Check out their website at www.secretkeepergirl.com.
