OUR COMMITMENT

Because Kids Matter to God

Our Children’s Ministry is a place where we commit to help families establish a spiritual foundation for their children. Our prayer is that, in God’s timing, every child will be led into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Our children’s ministry offers fun, safe, age-appropriate environments for infants through 5th graders. Our goal is to communicate God’s love to the children at their level of understanding.

Sunday mornings

what to expect

The nurseries are available at both 9:30am (0 – 3 years) and 11:00am (0 – PreK) located at the northwest end of the church near the sanctuary. (Infant care in room 5 and toddlers in room 6.) 

During the 9:30 service, children’s discipleship classes are available for Pre-K – 5th grade.

The Pre-K (age 3-young 5’s) meet in room 7. The Pre-K class is designed to connect God’s Word to preschoolers lives in an intentional way.

Grades K-5 meet in the children’s wing at the south end of the church (rooms 16 and 17).  Your child will get an overview of the Bible as we walk through each part in order.  Our goal is to show that the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story of God’s redemption.

During the 11:00 service children grades K-5 attend church with their families. There are child-friendly activities provided as you enter the worship service.

Wednesdays

J.U.M.P. (Jesus Use Me Please)

Wednesday nights (during the school year) from 6:30 to 8:00 we offer another chance not only for families to bring their children to hear God’s word, but for children to invite their friends to come and learn as well. Children from K- 5th grade are welcome to come connect with each other in game time, hear God’s Word during Large Group and then have a chance to connect with their leader and with children in their specific grade during Small Group time (Rooms 15- 19 in the Children’s wing).

Our children’s ministry offers fun, safe, age-appropriate environments for infants through 5th graders. Our goal is to communicate God’s love to the children at their level of understanding.

SAFETY & SECURITY

WE TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY

Each quarter parents will need to get a new cariculum as directed. Fall 2017 Jesus Saves is the one associated with the stories and bible verses we are currently learning at FCC. Your child can watch the Bible story, play games to learn the key memory passage, color the main points and story pictures, and review each units “Big Picture Questions.”
