Learning about God is very important for our children. The church supports the home and school in teaching the Bible and Christian values. Beginning in September and continuing until June, classes for children 3-years-old through the 12 grade meet each Sunday after worship at 10:45.
Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior
This club is for girls grades 5 through 8. it meets every Wednesday evening from September through April from 6:45 to 8:30. The goal is to bring girls into a living relationship with Christ through Bible lessons and creative activities. It is designed to help them in personal growth and in their relationships with others.
The theme is LOVED. (Period) I John 3:1 ” See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”
Our greatest desire is to be loved(Proverbs 19:22). No matter who you are or where you are in your story, we share the same insatiable desire. We desire love. We need to know that we are loved and seen. That we matter! If we miss the glorious truth that we are fully and unconditionally loved by Jesus, we’ll hold our emptiness up to something or someone else to fill us. But, if we discover that our identity comes from who God says we are, instead of who we tell ourselves to be (looks, feelings, possessions, popularity, performance), then we can bring hope to girls and women who put question marks where God places a period. When we understand who we really are then we can love LOVED. Period!!!
Boys in grades 5 through 8 are involved in weekly Bible study, recreational activities and creative projects supervised by qualified leaders. These activities are planned to help develop a sense of belonging and fellowship among boys of our church and community. Cadets meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm from September through March. Cadets is designed to help boys develop into men for God.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Paul often uses competition as an allegory for life, and the author of Hebrews does the same here. When it comes to a life of serving God, we are participants, not spectators.
Teenagers in grades 9 to 12 are invited to join our young people’s group. This group meets weekly on Wednesday nights, from 7:00-9:00. At these meetings, the teens and their leaders discuss issues of the day in the light of God’s Word. They aslo plan social activities, outings and service projects.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
I Timothy 4:12
