Kids Alive

 

The Kids Alive Zone is our Wednesday Night Children's Ministry for Grades K-5, starting at 6:30 PM and ending at 8 PM. during the school year.   

Know and love God, respect life, honor parents, obey authority, and live faithfully unto the Lord
". . . receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.   But be doers of the word and not hearers only . . ."  (James 1:21-22)

Our goal:

  • To equip children to live righteously in accordance with the understanding that the Bible is God's word to be hidden in our hearts and expressed through our daily lives in every situation whether at home, church, school, work, or play.

Our method:

  • Bible memory with a purpose
  • Mission focused projects
  • Vibrant praise and worship
  • Creative fun together

The routine

  • Fifteen minute small groups - scripture memorization, service/servant recognition, coaching for success
  • Thirty minute teaching - lesson for the week and scripture
  • Games and recreation - wholesome competitive circle activity as each small group learns teamwork.
  • Praise and worship - learning to seek God through worship, experience His presence and know His voice.
  • Dress up - some weeks feature a fun "costume" theme, hat night, or crazy color focus to liven up the meeting and
  • intensify the kids' enthusiasm - they love it!!!!!

Leadership:
Sarah Bush - a loving wife, devoted mother of 7, certified/qualified teacher assisted by her team of caring adults and young helpers.

Children's Church

We offer Children's Church for our young friends ages 4 - 8.  It meets on Sunday mornings following the praise and worship part of the service in the sanctuary.  In Children's Church, children learn all about Jesus and how to live for Him.  There are Bible lessons through sermons, skits, puppets and activities on a level they can relate to.  This is a time of prayer, fellowship and learning from the Word of God.
