Cheerful Givers Wanted

Kids

Awali Land
9:00am and 10:45am Sunday mornings.

Awali Land is an exciting ministry for our nursery and preschool children. Our mission in Awali Land is to give preschoolers (birth through kindergarten) a lasting impression of God.  We believe that it is never too early to begin building a foundation of faith, and that even the littlest children have a tremendous capacity to learn and apply basic Bible principles.

In Awali Land, we teach and reinforce three basic truths:

  • God Made Me
  • God Loves Me
  • Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever

We consider Awali Land to be a foundational ministry of our church, and it is definitely not a babysitting service. With creative environments, loving volunteers, and hands-on learning experiences, we strive to provide the very best care for our precious preschoolers during every Sunday morning worship service.

252Kids
9:00am and 10:45am Sunday mornings.

252Kids is the place where 1st-3rd graders meet new friends and learn about God’s Word! It’s an environment where the Bible comes alive, kids have the opportunity to engage through upbeat worship music, and leaders create an atmosphere that helps kids grow in their faith during Small Group time each week.

Although we teach many virtues and principles in 252Kids, we especially emphasize three basic truths. We think that these three truths are extremely important for elementary students to know and apply. These three truths are:

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

The three basic truths revolve around our theme verse for 252Kids, Luke 2:52 – “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man”. 252Kids meets in the Elementary Auditorium (the large room in the middle of the Children’s Building) during the 9:00 service and the 10:45 service each week.

Merge45
9:00am and 10:45am Sunday mornings.

In Merge45, our goal is to help bridge the gap between elementary school and middle school…so we do just that…MERGE the two environments into a new environment that is geared for just 4th and 5th graders! We teach some basic truths from 252Kids and incorporate some new elements that will help better prepare older elementary kids for middle school, all based on making God’s Word real in the lives of 4th and 5th graders. Interactive games, upbeat music, and engaging small groups are just a few things that kids will experience in the Merge environment! Proverbs 4:5 is the foundation for everything we do in Merge45 - “Get wisdom, and get understanding. Don’t forget my words or turn away from them.” Merge45 meets in The Loft (Upstairs in the Children’s Building) during the 9:00 service and the 10:45 service each week.

AWANA
5:30pm Sunday evenings.

AWANA is a very exciting ministry with leaders who are dedicated to the children. We view AWANA as an instructional ministry, an outreach ministry, and memorization ministry. AWANA is based upon simple goals: to teach the children to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
