Children & Youth

Children are an inheritance, a blessing from the Lord!

Our pastor invests a portion of his ministry teaching our children and youth in our Cat Kids ministry. Cat Kids meets twice mostly on Wednesday evenings. Our children and their invited friends enjoy the fun of learning with Pastor Crotts from G.I. Williamson’s Westminster Shorter Catechism Study. Afterwards, we enjoy a game and snacks.

Children of all ages are encouraged to participate fully in the life of our church. Our children are encouraged and welcomed to serve in the total ministry of the church as they participate in worship, discipleship, fellowship, hospitality, mercy, and stewardship.

We do offer specific ministries for our children by age, topic, and need.

For our children, there is a Sunday School class during our at 9:45 AM Christian Education hour. Great care is taken to provide qualified teachers in a safe environment where our children can grow in their faith and parents may find assistance in reinforcing the truths we are to instill in our children.

We encourage parents and children to worship together in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings. Since our prayer is that our children will know God, and then will love and worship Him forever, it is important that we train them to worship. We know that corporate worship can be a challenge for families with young children. They are sometimes noisy, making it difficult for others including parents to worship. We provide a nursery for babies and children as they are making this transition and learning to worship the Lord. We also don’t mind a bit of noise in church, for it is the sound of God’s children learning to do what they will do for eternity – glorify and enjoy Him!

Our nursery is safely located in our Education Building. Trained volunteers keep our well-maintained nursery during Sunday School, Worship, and for many of our special events. Our nursery is carefully divided into different age groups or developmental stages: Infants, Crawlers, Toddlers and Walkers. We offer a secure, clean and self-contained nursery with a communications system for parents. Our theme is to read, sing, pray and play with the little ones!
