Children’s Christmas Plans 2017


All children age 4 through 5th grade are invited to be a part of the annual Christmas Program!  Practice begins 11/5 during Children’s Church at both services and during kids praise time at 9:40 in the sanctuary so that all kids who attend any service are included.  There will also be 2 extra practices so that all kids may practice together (see dates below).

We will have a final rehearsal for all participating kids on Friday 12/8.  This will be a night of pizza, practice, crafts and games as well as  a celebration of Jesus’s birthday.  Kids will be invited to bring a gift for Jesus in the form of stocking stuffers (candy, art supplies and small toys) for our Book Bag Food Ministry friends.

deep blueOur Sunday School and Children’s Church follow the Deep Blue curriculum.   Download the Deep Blue App so your kids can watch the weekly animated bible lesson, play games, and even learn scripture.  Now, your kids can stay connected to our weekly lessons on those Sundays when they are unable to attend church.  Aren’t you glad there’s an App for that?   🙂

At the 8:30 and 11am Worship Services, children are invited to attend Children’s Church.  Children begin the service with their families and exit with the teacher prior to the message portion of the service so that they can learn about God, worship and the Bible at their own level.  They are returned to the sanctuary during the final song.  Consider downloading the Deep Blue Bible App as a companion to our curriculum.  On the App, they can watch bible story videos and play games related to the stories.   There is no Children’s Church on communion Sundays so that children may experience communion with their families.

Children’s praise and worship through music begins each Sunday at 9:40 in the Sanctuary.  While the focus is on singing because we love Jesus, the time can also be used to prepare to sing for the congregation.   In addition, we celebrate birthdays on the 1st Sunday of each month; and each child who has a birthday in the month receives a small gift.  At 10am, children are divided by age and head with their teachers to Sunday School in classrooms downstairs.  Sunday School ends at 10:45.  Pre K through 1st Grade students remain in their classroom to be picked up by their parents.  Students 2nd Grade through 5th Grade return to their parents in the sanctuary.

Every penny put into an offering plate during Sunday School and Children’s Church is spent to help kids.   At holidays, we use the money to help kids through the Book Bag Food Ministry, CCAP, and individual families who are in need.


Special Events

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR DAY – We use this day to both celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. and to find meaningful service projects for our kids to participate in.


EASTER – Our Annual Egg Hunt is always the Saturday before Easter.  After hearing the Easter Story, kids are divided by age for 4 separate hunts.  All candy is peanut allergy safe.

VBS – VBS takes place each year in June.  We have 5 nights of lessons followed by time of fellowship, food and fun.  During VBS, we not only have a great deal of fun; but we also encourage the kids to become disciples by supporting a mission.  In 2016, we collected supplies and money for the Fremont Street Nursery.   Kids helping kids in the name of Jesus – how awesome!


CHRISTMAS –  Preparation for the Annual Children’s Christmas Program begins in November.  Children practice the musical portion of the program each Sunday at Children’s Church and during children’s music time at 9:40.  All 4th & 5th grade students are welcome to participate in a Christmas play, and practices take place on Sunday at a time to be determined..  All children age 3 through 5th Grade are invited to be a part of the celebration of Jesus’ birth, and the  program is held on the 2nd Sunday of December at 6pm.   Additionally, our 4pm Christmas Eve service is tailored for children and each child will receive a gift.
