Our loving nursery workers provide a clean and safe environment for children in our nurseries to enjoy their time. The volunteers who work in our nursery are well-qualified, carefully selected, friendly, and helpful. Parents who place their child in one of our nurseries receive a pager so that they can be contacted should a need arise. Nursery is provided for newborns through three years old.
Children ages 4 through 7 have the opportunity to participate in our Junior Church service on Sunday mornings while the adults gather for the morning worship service. Those in Junior Church usually accompany their parents at the beginning of the worship service and are dismissed during the service. Our Junior Church includes exciting songs, missionary stories, and a Bible lesson that is relevant in particular to children.
Regardless of the age, we have a Sunday School class for all children (and adults). Our Sunday School teachers are knowledgeable volunteers who teach age-appropriate Bible lessons. The children often have some type of craft during their time in Sunday School as well.
Patch the Pirate Clubs are an exciting part of the ministry here. The Patch the Pirate Clubs meet every Wednesday night during the school year. The older children (grades 1-6) participate in the Patch club while younger children (ages 4-6) are part of the PeeWee Patch club.
In Patch the Pirate Clubs the children have opportunity to hear exciting stories, enjoy a snack, and learn new songs. Once a month, the PeeWee Patch and Patch kids share what they have been learning with the rest of the adults during a Sunday Evening Service.
Good News Clubs has provided us with an exciting opportunity. Throughout the school year, screened volunteers conduct an after-school Good News Club at Woodstock Elementary School. One day a week the club meets for a time of singing, prayer, games, missionary story, and Bible story.
