Children Ministries

“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these”. 

Matthew 19:14 KJV


Children’s Church

We believe that the worship and teach of God and His Word should be experienced and taught to all.  We know that children’s minds and hearts are like sponges, aborsbing the world around them.  Knowing this, keeping the words of Jesus in Matthew 19:14 in our hearts, we offer children their own church services on Sunday mornings. 

Toddlers and children (up to 12 years of age) gather together for an unique worship service, that includes three major elements: prayer, praise, and teaching.  Prayer allows the children the opportunity to pray for their parents, siblings, pets, friends and what ever their little hearts desire.  It also allows them to experience the privilege of intercessory prayer.  Our praise portion of their service includes songs, sign language, and body movement, all teaching the children about God’s grace and Jesus’ love.  In addition, our children experience the joy of worshiping God. 

After the “opening service” children are grouped into two groups.  Toddlers and preschoolers join together for a central message of God’s love and Christian principles. With the help of BOZ “the green bear next door” children discover God’s world together.

Children in grades 1st - 6th discover God’s Word through drama, games, crafts, and media.  They are on a journey through the Bible using “Route 66 a Roadtrip through the books of the Bible.”  Children not only learn the classic Bible stories, but learn spiritual truths to apply in their daily lives.

Scripture memory is encouraged and rewarded with special “Bible Bucks”, that they can spend in the “Sunday School Store” on the first Sunday of every month.
