We want every child who walks our streets to experience the love and truth of God in a safe, fun, and caring environment. We desire to partner with families as they teach their children who God is and how to live for Him.
SAFETY IS A PRIORITY
All Children’s Ministry volunteers have been equipped and empowered to lead youngsters. In fact, each volunteer has a thorough background check to help us ensure the safety of our little ones.
On Sunday Mornings, our nursery provides a safe, comfortable, and fun place for all the kiddos under 2 years old. Even at this early age, kids are still learning simple biblical concepts.
Parents can feel free to come and visit beforehand or simply arrive on Sunday morning and we’ll be happy to show you where to go.
Please be sure to allow a little extra time as you’ll register each child and receive a security sticker that will expedite the way you pick up your children after the morning’s activities.
AGE 2 - PRE-K
The big picture of God’s story!
Our 2 year-olds through Pre-K are learning about the “grand narrative” of the whole Bible. Each week we will provide our preschoolers with opportunities to connect each Bible Story (through a chronological timeline of Bible events) with Christ. They will begin to understand that the whole Bible is the Gospel. Our preschoolers will experience and learn the Bible in a new and exciting way! Each week these stories will come to life through video, live theater, music, crafts, activities, and more!
Preschoolers will attend a large group theater time and hear the Bible story in a live, interactive way. In their small group classroom time, our preschoolers will be asked a “Big Picture Question” to help them connect and remember the Bible Story truth through crafts and other activities. They will connect with their class, grow in God’s Word, and engage with the Word.
We encourage everyone at Faith to attend a Worship Gathering one ‘hour’ to attend a Faith Group one ‘hour’ and to serve in some way the other ‘hour’. Each person can do this in whatever order they choose, but what that can mean is that our kids are involved in classes all three hours. Children 5 and older get to come to the Worship Service with their parents one ‘hour’. Younger than 5 can go too, but they can also stay in their same class all three hours and participate in different activities each hour to reinforce the Bible Story.
Parents will receive a “Family Journal Page” as well as a “Big Picture Card” each Sunday to reinforce and discuss the Biblical truths and Bible Stories at home throughout the week. The Big Picture Family Cards are great to use and talk about during drive time, meal time, and bed time conversations.
Picture curriculum that meets kid-friendly, fun theater. Picture powerful, drama enhanced Bible stories that come to life and put biblical chronology into big picture understanding of the gospel like kids have never seen. Picture boys and girls learning that each Bible story they learn about is actually woven into and a part of God’s ultimate plan of redemption through Christ. And finally, picture teaching partnerships with parents that help bring it all home each week. The Gospel Project for Kids by LifeWay, helps our teachers teach the Bible in a way that will give our children and parents a clear understanding of God’s Word. Join the excitement as we search the Scriptures, God self-revelation to mankind!
Big Picture Cards for Families
These weekly cards equip parents with a handy Bible story question to help kids understand how the Bible events they are learning fit into the big picture of God’s story. These will be given out in paper form each week.
Scripture Memory Verse
These helpful sheets are to help parents engage kids in helping them to learn scripture on a weekly basis while focusing on the contents of the lesson they are taught in class each week. This is a great way to bring the family together and equip parents in the great task of teaching their children God’s Word.
THE BRIDGE FOR 4th/5th GRADERS
Our fourth and fifth graders will take part in “The Bridge,” a new emphasis on equipping these kids to go deeper in the study and application of God’s Word, cultivating in them a desire to personally pursue spiritual things and to know Jesus.
HOW SUNDAY MORNINGS WORK
We encourage everyone at Faith to attend a Worship Gathering one ‘hour’ to attend a Faith Group one ‘hour’ and to serve in some way the other ‘hour’. Each person can do this in whatever order they choose, but what that can mean is that our kids are involved in classes all three hours. Children 5 and older get to come to the Worship Service with their parents one ‘hour’. Those younger than 5 can go too, but they can also stay in their same class all three hours and participate in different activities each hour to reinforce the Bible Story.
Kids attending a worship service and a Faith Group then get to spend a third ‘hour’ in the Missions Room where there are games and activities and friends.
