“Growing In Grace and Gratitude” is the new Children’s curriculum, and it is awesome! We gather at 9:00 AM for Sunday School and gather our pennies and coins during Children’s Moment in worship to help other children around the world. So far we have bought over 60 chickens for Heifer International families; collected aluminum can tabs for Ronald McDonald House; helped immunize hundreds of children againt intestinal worms in third world countries; helped our Zoo “kids” have healthy snacks; and adopted a local Christmas family last year so each child would get a needed article and toy as well as a full Christmas dinner with all the “fixings”. In these ways, we are teaching our children the joy of giving as Jesus Christ gives to us.
This year we have a young people’s class which will meet at the slightly later hour of 9:30am. This is aimed at high school students and will focus on questions and discussion important to group members.
In the Summer,Vacation Bible School is always a hit! Typically it is held in June. Fun-filled for all ages, our wonderful leaders and volunteers make it happen! As one of our outreach efforts, we give scholarships to those who cannot afford the $5 fee – which is subsidized by the church as it costs us over $20 per child. This is one of our many missions – to let children know Jesus loves them in play and song, story and science. ALL children are welcome.
