CHILDREN & YOUTH MINISTRY
Building love for Jesus and God's Word in students of all ages.
On Sunday mornings, we offer nursery care for babies to age 4. During that time, we offer age-appropriate Bible readings and activities.
We have three classes that meet during the sermon in an effort to meet children at their level of understanding. Parents are not required to send their children to these classes, but we do encourage that. The first two classes meet weekly (except the 2nd Sunday of the month, which is our Family Service) and read through books of the Bible in short sections. After 5 years, our children have read some of the most important books of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The third class meets twice a month and will be using the PCA's curriculum for that age group, studying how and why we worship.
Class A: 5 year old & Kindergartners
Class B: 1st-3rd Graders
Class C: 4th-5th Graders
Our Youth Group is open to middle and high schoolers. They meet during the NightLife ministry, You can drop off middle and high schoolers or stay and participate in adult Life Groups. Our Youth Group is a great space for students to mature in their love for the Lord, personal understanding of the faith, and care for each other. If you have questions, you can email Ben Robel. It is essential for teens to learn, not simply by sitting and reading, but also by doing. Therefore, many of our youth group age students participate in helping on Sunday morning, advancing slides, running sound, serving as greeters or in the nursery, and are also active in encouraging our church to stay generous in donations to the Cloverleaf Food Pantry in Elizabeth. We know that spiritual maturity requires faith in action.
