In June our memory verse is Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”  Kids can get 12 silly bands each week for saying this verse!  We are currently looking at the lives of Peter and Paul after Jesus ascended into heaven.  Our last Kid’s Club for the school year will be on June 11.

There will also be a bonus reading this month on June 4.  Kids can read Acts 12:1-19 earn up to 20 SBs!  Worksheets will be on the announcement table to complete after reading the Bible text.  The worksheet will have questions to answer and the more questions kids answer correctly, the more SBs they will earn!  


Kid’s Club offers silly bands for attendance, Bible memorization, bringing your Bible, bringing a visitor, and attending Sunday School.  Silly bands can be used to purchase prizes at any time.  The ultimate prize is a trip to Chuck E. Cheese on June 12, 2014!  The Chuck E. Cheese trip costs 350 Silly Bands.

Children’s Church

There are special services for children 4 years old through 5th grade during the 10:00 worship service.  Children’s Church meets in the center of the Gym, located on the west end of the ground level.  The children begin worship with their parents in the sanctuary and after the worship time and Children’s Chat, they are dismissed.  Each week the children sing, and then have a Bible lesson along with lesson related activities.  (Beginning Sunday, September 8, Jr. Church will take place during the entire worship service.)  If you have questions, please contact Children’s Pastor Jody Saunders at

The Sunday School hour is from 9:00 to 9:50 am.  There are classes available for all ages, infant through adult.  All children meet in the middle of the upstairs rooms for singing and teaching the first twenty minutes, and then they are dismissed to classes:  Preschool-1st, 2nd-3rd and 4th-5th.


The infant nursery is for those 0-1 years of age and meets on the ground level by the Sanctuary.  The toddler nursery is for children 2-4 years old and is located in the lower level of the church.  The nursery is available during the 10:00 worship service on Sunday mornings, and also during the Wednesday evening services during the school year (for parents involved with the Wed. night services).
