CHILDRENS MINISTRY

Our programs for children provide a fun, age-appropriate environment where infants through fifth graders can be transformed by God's love and guided by Jesus truth while making wonderful new friends.


FAITHLAND SUNDAYS

Available during the 9 & 10:30 AM services.

 

NURSERY CHILDREN are provided a safe, enriching environment where they hear short Bible stories and play under the watchful care of loving volunteers.

PRESCHOOL CHILDREN will discover that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever as they explore bible stories, create crafts, and have fun playing with friends! VIEW WHAT WE LEARN IN PRESCHOOL HERE

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN will develop a deeper faith, learn how to make wise choices, and build strong relationships as they dig into the bible each week. The kids will start with high energy worship and bible adventures and then transition into small group experiences by grade. VIEW WHAT WE LEARN IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HERE

 

 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE! KIDS

 

CHILDREN'S CHOIRS
1ST - 5TH GRADE: 5:00 - 5:40 PM  • 
 PRESCHOOL - KINDERGARTEN: 5:40 - 6:00 PM

Children learn easy praise songs and get an introduction to performing by singing in worship throughout the year. Grade-school children learn wonderful Contemporary Christian songs, expressive motions, and have a lot of fun preparing to present these melodies to the congregation in worship. 1st-5th grade students also have an opportunity to audition for the Christmas and Spring musicals. Both free of charge. 

 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE! DINNER

DINNER  •  5:15 - 6:00 PM

We've taken the work out of Wednesays for you by planning dinner for your and your family! We offer a rotating menu each week - which ranges from pizzza & hot dogs to a build-your-own nachos night! Menu rotates weekly, and is announced via the Wednesday Night Live! Weekly Email. Pre-register for your favorite dinners. $4 per person.

 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE! KIDS

PRESCHOOL - 5TH GRADE • 6:00 - 7:30 PM

Neither culture nor circumstance will ever fully define today’s kids. Instead, their worldview will be shaped and their path chosen by how well they come to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ - and that's why we've designed Wednesday Night Live! Kids. Through weekly small groups, worship and high energy activities, kids in Preschool through 5th Grade will grow and expand their understanding of who God is - and have a blast at the same time!

SPECIAL CHILDREN'S EVENTS

Light of Christ believes in the value of training families in developmentally appropriate spiritual practices.  These are our special once-a-year opportunities for parents to plant a "spiritual seed" in the children's lives and grow together in faith with your child.


FIRST COMMUNION

     Fifth grade families join us for a series of fun workshops that will help your child understand why and how we take communion. We even stomp grapes and make communion bread! Upon completion of the workshops, participating fifth graders, celebrate their First Communion together during a worship service.  

THE LORD'S PRAYER

     Our Lord's Prayer Dinner and Workshop is a special time to enjoy a meal together and then share in a fun workshop designed to easily teach your child the Lord's Prayer. Then the following Sunday these children will be invited up front to lead the congregation in the Lord's Prayer before communion. This program is for Kindergarten through fifth graders. You won't want to miss this!!!

BIBLE WORKSHOPS

     We offer two Bible workshops: the first for Preschool age children where we have some fun "planting the seeds of faith" in your child's heart and mind.  They receive a storybook Bible for you to read the main stories of the Bible in easily understood language along with illustrations. 

     When a child reaches third grade it's time to get a new bible of their own.  In this workshop your child learns to open the Bible and discover how to find their way around, and how to make reading the Bible a meainingful part of their day.  Then come back on Sunday to receive a blessing!
