Our church is blessed to minister to children. We believe that all children have a purpose in the Kingdom of God. Bill Johnson (Author) says, “Children do not have a junior Holy Spirit.” We believe that wholeheartedly. We know the world can send all the wrong messages to our youngest so we as a church strive to teach our kids Biblical truth. To explain these truths, we use the three “Crowns.”

Crown of Life

GOD WILL BLESS YOU, IF YOU DON’T GIVE UP WHEN YOUR FAITH IS BEING TESTED. HE WILL REWARD YOU WITH A CROWN OF LIFE, JUST AS HE REWARDS EVERYONE WHO LOVES HIM.

JAMES 1:12

The Crown of Life is earned as we face trials in life yet continue to love the Lord. As a ministry, we help children navigate all the trials of life by teaching them what God says about them: You are loved, you are wanted, you have a purpose, and you will never be alone.

Salvation's Crown

IF YOU DECLARE WITH YOUR MOUTH, “JESUS IS LORD,” AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED.

ROMANS 10:9

Jesus made it simple: say out loud that He is Lord and believe it in your heart and you are saved. Salvation is never a mixed message for our children. We teach them about Jesus and that the Bible is 100% all true.

Gifts and Talents

WITH GOD’S POWER WORKING IN US, GOD CAN DO MUCH, MUCH MORE THAN ANYTHING WE CAN ASK OR THINK OF.

EPHESIANS 3:20

EVERYTHING YOU SAY AND EVERYTHING YOU DO SHOULD ALL BE DONE FOR JESUS YOUR LORD. AND IN ALL YOU DO, GIVE THANKS TO GOD THE FATHER THROUGH JESUS.

COLOSSIANS 3:17

Just like all the many colors there are in the crayon (crown) box there are as many creative and diverse children among us. We encourage individuality and diversity among our children. It is not wrong to be different and set apart. All children are blessed with natural talents and as believers they are also given gifts of the spirit. When God is working in us and through us we can accomplish anything.

Don't let anyone make fun of you, just because you are young. Set an example for other followers by what you say and do, as well as by your love, faith, and purity. -1 Timothy 4:12

Our theme this school year is “Under the Sea.” Every week we are learning about new sea animals and how they can help us understand ourselves and God’s important lessons. Classes are taught at grade level and each class is unique. Pre-k’s love stickers, 2nd graders love games, 5th graders love to study the word and youth are “chill.” No matter what your learning style is, our classes and amazing teachers always have a blast!

WORSHIP

Children Discussion

10:30AM WORSHIP

AS ADULTS, WE MODEL WORSHIP TO OUR CHILDREN. SO, WE LOVE HAVING OUR CHILDREN IN THE WORSHIP SERVICE.

At the entrance to the Sanctuary adults can pick up their bulletin and children can pick up their own “Kid Bag” and Kid Bulletin. The bag is full of quiet activities to do during the worship service. Every Sunday we also invite all the children to come forward for our Children’s Sermon. This time is a favorite for the congregation as it is usually full of laughter and joy.

We also have a great team of Nursery workers during the worship service. The nursery is in Room 1 (next to the submarine) and open to all children in Kindergarten or younger. Children may start the service in the nursery or join in at any point during the service.

EASTER

Palm Sunday
PALM SUNDAY

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter and it is usually our Visitor Sunday. Children will enter the sanctuary waving palms and declaring the way of the Lord.

EASTER EGG HUNT

The Saturday before Easter at 9:00am we hide thousands of eggs across the Church’s campus. Kids can enjoy small crafts, hunting for eggs and hear the Easter Story as presented in egg form! After the hunt is done we enjoy a huge brunch together.

EASTER SERVICE

Easter is a special time in the life of the church. Jesus is alive and this service is full of celebration and jubilation. Children love the lively songs and special Kid’s Bulletin.

CHRISTMAS

Children Christmas Play

During the holiday season, we have special programming for children to participate in. The Christmas Play Spectacular is always a fun time for children and families. After the play, we enjoy a cookie social with hot cocoa and a special visit from Santa!

We strive to teach our children about the importance of the season: Jesus. We learn from Jesus to take care of others and to love everyone, even when it can be difficult. So, during the Christmas months we ask the kids to gather small toys (new or used) to send to children at Lotts Creek Community School in Hazard, KY. The gifts we send will be the only gifts some of these children get over the holidays.
