Next Sermon – 9:00 AM on Sunday
Children’s Ministry exists to come alongside parents in discipling the children at For His Glory Community Church.
To instill a sense of reverence, wonder and knowledge of God in the hearts and minds of children so they can worship and enjoy the glory of God.
The main purpose of Children’s Ministry is to come alongside you in the God-given work of teaching, training, encouraging and discipling your children toward a vibrant relationship with Christ. Consider every teacher and classroom helper your partner in sharing God’s word and truth with your children each week. Parents are the primary spiritual influencers in the lives of their children and we are honored to pray with, stand beside, serve, guide and support you in the most crucial role as your child’s parent and spiritual leader.
FAMILY WORSHIP SERVICE
We believe in a time of family gathered worship and this is open to all children ages 3 years and older prior to checking them into their classrooms. Nursery may be checked in 15 minutes prior to service starting (8:45am).
For mothers of newborns and infants, we offer “Mother’s Room” where you may nurse or keep young children in your care. Live video and audio of the service is available, along with comfy couches, chairs and changing station.
KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS OUR CHIEF AIM
We seek to present children with the Word so they will discover God and ultimately stand in awe of who He is, repent and believe in Jesus Christ. Knowing God means they must be appropriately taught the word of God, with the reverent understanding that the Holy Spirit reveals Himself to each child and brings understanding and light to the truths of the gospel.
NURSERY | Walkers – 35 Months
Nursery Class is provided in a safe and caring environment with 2 helpers every week during Family Worship service. In nursery children listen to bible stories, sing worship songs, engage in hands-on activities and have free play. Nursery Childcare is provided during Discipleship classes for a time of unstructured play and supervision with a dedicated and trained teen helper, with the Children’s Ministry lead on-call when needed.
Children’s Church begins with Preschool, Kinder and Elementary singing hymns for worship, scripture recitation and Bible Teaching, which involves a 3-year chronological study through the scriptures. Then children go to their respective classes:
PRESCHOOL + KINDER | 3-5 years old
We have a structured class for those 3 years up through Kinder or until the child turns 6 years old. We value our time with these little ones and trust that through a short lesson and a whole lot of fun, they will grow to a better understanding of Jesus and his love for them. We have Bible story related enrichment, craft or activities and unstructured play time.
ELEMENTARY | 1st – 4th Grade
Through the reading of God’s Word and the teaching of sound Christian doctrine we teach our children using simple, yet rich practices. Following the Bible Teaching, we implement enrichment time as a way for children to be directly in touch with God’s truth, goodness and beauty through hymns, poetry, masterpieces of art and stories of missionaries or church history. As a child’s mind is nourished with this rich feast, our hope is that they will come to marvel at who God is.
