Sunday mornings children are welcomed to Sunday School classes by our trained, qualified, and dedicated teachers. Bible stories, games, crafts, scripture memorization, music, snacks, and FUN are all included in class times to encourage children to grow in their understanding of God!
Children can be dropped off to class between 9:45 and 10:15 AM. Classes begin at 10:00 and last until after the adult sermon is completed around 11:00. Parents are released then to get their children so they can participate together in the praise and worship part of the DOVE Sunday Celebration time.
Snacks provided: Snacks are provided to preschool children and those in K-1st grade. Our snack are based on the themes provided by the Gospel Project. Some examples of past snacks are animal crackers for Noah's ark, fruit for Adam and Eve, and carrots for Cain and Abel. Gluten-free snacks are always available and we accommodate other allergies and food sensitivities as well. We also provide Cheerios and animal crackers in the nursery. Please alert the teacher of any special dietary needs.
We use "The Gospel Project" in all our classes. This curriculum is a 3-year cycle through the Bible. It offers videos, games, music, and crafts. We are using the preschool version for our 2's, 3's, and 4's. Our K-4th graders are using the Kids version with K-1st using the younger kids and 2nd-4th using the older kids. Our 5th-6th grade class is using the student version. Here's a link to learn more: GOSPEL PROJECT
We are excited to announce that we have the opportunity to correspond with children in Zambia through Dan and Regina Bumstead with Love's Door. Their mission is to catalyze church planting movements capable of advancing disciples of Jesus who will transform their communities and partner with us to rear orphaned and vulnerable children, endowed to become the leaders of tomorrow. We hope that through this program we can not only offer encouragement to those living in the orphanages in Zambia, but also show our children a glimpse of the lives of children in other parts of the world. Due to the state of mail delivery, we will begin by simply emailing scanned copies of the letters that our children create to Love’s Door. They will print the letters and distribute them. Return letters will be sent to the church email address and then distributed to our children.
Each quarter, in addition to our regular Sunday classes and curriculum we plan a few special events. Here are a few for this quarter.
Sunday, February 18th - Purim Party - After a 2-week study of Esther, we will celebrate Purim with our classes. We will have special snacks and activities for all classes.
Sunday, March 25th - Egg Your Neighbors - For this ministry oriented Sunday, students will create a set of Resurrection eggs that they can take and hide for a neighbor, friend, or family member.
Sunday, April 29th - 5th Sunday Presentations - Join us as we share the things that we have learned this quarter during the regular worship service. Each class will present on a specific Bible character and Flames for Christ will perform.
Sunday, May 20th - Old Testament Review - As we wrap up our almost 2 year study of the Old Testament, we will spend the day reviewing what we've learned. Special games and prizes will be the highlight of the day.
We have several great family activities planned for 2018
