Kids

Sunday Mornings

Our littlest ones experience the love of Jesus through the care and attention of our nursery ministry team. We strive to nurture the youngest among us in a safe, warm environment – a place that communicates God’s love through joyful interaction, gentle patience, and encouraging words.

Preschool kids explore the Bible through stories which depict God’s love and instruction. They gain skill and confidence through interactive play and crafts. Age appropriate activities are designed to promote listening skills and cooperation, while high value is placed on the fun factor of learning and interacting with friends. Each week is full of objects for kids to touch, wild and wiggly activities to get them moving, crafts they will love and real life situations they can relate to.

Elementary kids experience opening activities that begin their Sunday morning with interaction and creativity in a fun, inclusive environment. Young readers begin to gain skills in navigating God’s word and continue to explore the great stories and characters of the Bible. Children begin to explore more personal application from these lessons, and work to commit scripture to memory. Click here to download this week's handouts.

Summer Camp

 

Summer is a great time for our Children’s Ministry! We kick off summer with a week at Camp Tilikum, a day camp just outside Newberg. Our kids get to unplug from technology, experience creation, establish friendships, learn about God through the wonders of nature. 

Vacation Bible School

In July we launch our annual VBS (Vacation Bible School) – a week full of crazy games, fun crafts, rockin’ music, and relevant Bible stories. Whatever the theme, your kids will end the week knowing and loving God more!

 

Buddy Break

Buddy Break is a free kids/respite program where children with special needs (VIP kids) make new friends, play fun games, enjoy crafts, therapy dogs, stories, music activities, and more! Siblings have fun too! Meanwhile, their caregivers get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities for three hours. Buddy Break is open to church members and non-church members with VIP kids. Each VIP kid is paired one-on-one with a screened volunteer “Buddy” to participate in that day’s activities.
