Children and Youth

Children and Worship: We warmly welcome children to the worship service by providing a Worship Bag and children’s activity bulletin every Sunday. Pastor Boling gives a special Children’s Message every week that is related to the overall theme of the service. We do not staff a church nursery, but we fully understand that parents may need to step out with a restless infant or toddler as needed and return when ready. Children and youth assist the pastor as worship leaders from time to time. The Youth Choir sings approximately six times a year.

Bible Palooza!  What happens when you put kids together with caring adults for three hours on Sunday afternoon and add games, lunch, music, Bible storytelling, discussion, arts and crafts and a snack? Bible Palooza, that’s what! Once a quarter we pull out all the stops and plan a fun and faith-filled afternoon of learning for kids of all ages. Past Bible Palooza themes have included Bible Heroes, Psalm 23, We Worship Together, and C.S.I. God (Church Scripture Investigation).

Vacation Bible Camp: New this year, we are excited to offer Vacation Bible Camp for children and youth age 4 through 8th grade, July 8-12, 6:00-8:30PM. Vacation Bible Camp is filled with kid-friendly, hands-on Bible-learning experiences. Daily activities include dinner, singing, games, crafts, Bible study and fun, fun, fun!

Children’s Christmas Pageant: Each year on the second Sunday of Advent, an original Christmas Pageant written by Pastor Ruth takes the place of the sermon. There is always a part for every child and teenager in the church, and even some of the adults!
