Primary Department (Children’s Ministry)

 

Who is the Primary Department for?

Well the Primary Department is designed for the children in our congregation. From toddlers up to 6th grade. This stage in a child' life is critical in developing good habits in a child's growing relationship with Christ. 

How do we begin to develop a child's relationship with Christ? 

During our Sunday morning Sunday School classes children will begin to be introduced to prayer, studying the Bible, and being Christ like in their everyday life. One of the most critical components of a life with Christ is relationship based. You need a solid relationship with Christ as your foundation. Then relationships, with those you come in contact with. At work, church, school, just in your day to day life. Relationships are how you disciple those who know Christ as their Savior, and how you be a Christ like example to those who have not entrusted their life to Jesus. When we as Christians embody Christ in our daily life, those who are not Christ disciples will start to wonder what is it that makes these "church goers" different. 

What opportunities do we have to develop our relationship skills? 

  • Annual Vacation Bible School, A week of Bible lessons, prayer, crafts, snacks, games and more! 
  • Weekly Sunday School Classes
  • Annual Children's Christmas Program 
  • Making Christmas cards for shut ins 
  • Sunday School Picnic games and activities
  • Junior Church Program during our 10:30 AM Service 

How do I begin to participate in our Primary Department?
