CHILDREN’S CHURCH

 

During the adult “sermon time” we offer Children’s Church for children through 6th grade.   Young children are welcome to attend if they are old enough to sit for a short time and not distract others.  The attendance varies from 25 to 35 children each week.

 

Children’s Church functions much like the old-time one-room school – with the large group of children being taught and learning together from the teachers and from each other.  The younger children learn from older children and the larger group is more fun and enjoyable for everyone – children and teachers.

 

The Children’s Church time is divided into two segments:  a time for music and a Bible lesson with hands-on activities.  When attendance necessitates, we separate the children for the Bible lesson time into two groups – a special group for children who are 5 and under. 

 

The children provide the special music for the Morning Worship Service once a quarter.  The songs are learned during the music time each week.  The Children’s Choir is a “big hit” with everyone – especially the parents and grandparents.

 

Children’s Church functions with 4 volunteer teachers who are assigned to teach one Sunday per month.  The music director is the same each week.

ELEMENTARY SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS

 

The Sunday School is a special time of learning Bible stories and applying them to daily living.  The Sunday School Class lasts about 40 minutes.  This class is for children through 5th grade.   Young children are welcome to attend if they are old enough to sit for a short time and not distract others.  The attendance varies from 15 to 25 students each week.

 

Sunday School class functions much like the old-time one-room school – with the large group of children being taught and learning together from the teachers and from each other.  The younger children learn from older children and the larger group is more fun and enjoyable for everyone – children and teachers.

 

Our sessions for Sunday School are divided into three segments -- review and music time, a Bible lesson and an activities time with Biblical application.   We plan in order that all the children learn and participate.

 

The Sunday School functions with 2 or 3 teachers -- each is responsible for one of the segments each week.
