- That our children know they are valuable to God, and have a personal, loving, growing relationship with Jesus Christ their Savior. (John 1:12, 3:16, 15:10; Mark 12:30)
- That our children learn to love, serve, and care for one another. (John 13:34-35; Mark 12:31; Ephesians 4)
- That our children have a heart to share Jesus with a lost world. (John 17:23; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8)
Although we believe it is the primary responsibility of parents to bring up their children in the Lord, it is our desire to be a support to parents in the spiritual teaching and training of their children.
The nursery is for babies up to the age of 3, and is staffed during the Sunday School hour and the sermon time. We start to transition the 3-year-olds to the preschool classroom once they are able to participate in a more structured setting.
Sunday School is offered the months of September through May from 9:00 to 9:45am. The children are divided into classrooms based on their age (3 - 4 year olds, 5 - K, 1st - 2nd grade, 3rd - 4th grade, 5th - 6th grade) and go through a Sunday School curriculum. This "small group" classroom setting is a great in-depth teaching time of God's Word.
Kids Worship (1st - 6th grade)
During the School year (Sept – May) we offer “Kids Worship” before our Jr. Church classes. (10:00-10:40 am) This is held for kids 1st - 6th grade, at the same time as worship in the sanctuary. During this time there is an interactive Bible Memory Verse program, Bible Verse Challenge, and a great time to connect & worship the Lord together. This program also gives kids an opportunity to use their individual gifts & talents in singing & music as well.
Jr. Church is offered year round for the Preschool - 4th grade students during the sermon time. Preschoolers are divided by age (3 - 4's, 5 - K's) and elementary classes are either divided by grade or combined (1st - 4th grade or 1st - 6th grade) depending on the curriculum. Once a month, 5th - 6th grade Jr. Church is offered as well. Curriculum varies, but is always Christ centered.
4th - 6th Grade Activities
Special events and fun trips are planned during the year for the purpose of building existing friendships and creating new ones in a Christ centered environment!
At different times children will have the opportunity to minister to others through puppets, clowns, dance, drama, or worship.
We staff and plan a Kids' Camp each summer for children entering 4th grade through 6th grade. We use Camp Dellwater, a Christian camp located Northeast of Clearbrook.
We plan a variety of family activities each year which encourage good, wholesome, family fun where we can build our relationships with each other. These activities also provide an opportunity to invite and reach out to other families in the surrounding communities.
