children & yOUTH mINISTRIES
We have a warm and nurturing staff who provide excellent nursery care for infants and young children. An area marked as the "Children's Wing" is off the right, through the main lobby of the Church. Check your child in here before attending services on Sunday morning.
Kingdom Kids Faith Building Hour (Sunday School) is available for Pre-School through 5th grade on Sunday mornings at 9:45am in Room 115. Children's Church is during the 10:45am Service. Pre-School through 3rd grade children will also be dismissed from the service while the older children will remain to participate in worship.
Parent's Night Out is our community ministry where we offer child care for any child 3 months old – 5th Grade on Friday nights from 6:45pm – 9:30pm. It is open to all in the community (you do not have to come to our church on Sunday to take advantage of this opportunity). Parent’s are able to drop their children off in a safe setting and are free to go on a date night, grocery shop or just take a nap. Pizza is provided as well as a Bible lesson (for the older children), crafts and movies.
We have 4 classes, Nursery: 3 months – 2 years, Preschool: 2 years – kindergarten, and Elementary: 1st – 3rd grade and 4th - 5th grade. The cost is $10 for your first child, $5 for each additional child.
If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Children's Ministry, Allie at 767 –8544 ext.103.
Sunday Nights from 5-7:45 pm we have the place for Youth!
It is our desire to offer our community a safe place for our Junior & Senior high youth to gather and have fun! We play games and there is plenty of food and snacks. But the night is more than just fun and games, we mix in a message for the youth each week.
In addition to Sunday Nights, we offer a Faith Building Class (Sunday School) on Sunday mornings at 9:45am in the Youth Room. This class is perfect to meet other teens in a smaller group and get deeper into God’s word.
We also do various mission projects throughout the year, like serving at Halifax Urban Ministries or making Easter baskets for the children of Family Renew.
If you have any questions, please contact our Youth Director, Rick at 767–8544 ext.104.
