Children’s Ministry

 

Sunday Mornings

We offer a couple of different ways for your child to develop their relationship with Christ.

Sunday School classes are offered at 9:30 am. There are classes for ages Pre-K/K thru 5th grade. There is also a nursery available for younger children.

After Sunday School, at 10:30 am, we have Children’s Church in the Fellowship Hall. This is a time of group worship, as well as individual class time.

Children’s Church on Sunday mornings has started a new curriculum called “Dig-In”. Throughout this year we will be learning all about the life of Jesus. Here are some of the things your child may have heard about over the last few weeks:

  • Wise and Foolish Builder (Matthew 7:24-27)
  • Jesus Eats with Sinners at Matthew’s House (Matthew 9:9-13)
  • Jesus Heals a Lame Man by a Pool (John 5:1-18)
  • Jesus Eats with Sinners at Matthew’s House (Matthew 9:9-13)
  • Jesus Heals a Lame Man by a Pool (John 5:1-18)
  • A Roman Officer Demonstrates Faith (Luke 7:1-10; Matthew 8:5-13)
Sunday Nights are a time for service and learning at FCC.
This September & October we’ll be doing many service projects for Operation Christmas Child.with local craft people.  These special projects will be packed in shoeboxes at the end of October.  We’ll also continue traveling to Miller’s Assisted Living once a month to do activities and build relationships with the residents there. We meet in the Fellowship Hall Sunday nights from 6-8 pm.

Joyful Noise Children’s Choir

Wednesday evenings the Joyful Noise Children’s Choir meets to practice, play games and have snacks with their friends.  The choir performs once a month in adult worship. They also have the opportunity to preform a few times a year at nursing homes, ringing the bell for Salvation Army and at special community events.
 
Every other year the choir presents a large-scale musical to the congregation.
This year we’re sharing the Christmas story in a fun and creative way, performing the musical “Camel Lot”
 
Any child age 4-5th grade is welcome.  Choir meets in the Adult Choir Room Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Children’s Library

Church camp offers an amazing opportunity each summer for your child to grow in the Lord, as well as make new friends and have some experiences that will stay with them for a lifetime! Camp Illiana in Washington, IN offers camp opportunities for kids ages kindergarten– high school.

Kindergarten age kids start off their camp experience by going one Saturday afternoon (Charlie Brown Camp). This helps to “get their feet wet” and gets them excited about the camp experience. You can find out more about camp and what dates are available for your child to attend this summer at: www.campilliana.org

A New Believers Class  will be offered for children grades 1st-5th beginning Sunday, September 10th. The class will meet from 5-5:45 pm in the 4th & 5th grade classroom. See Julie Jackson for more details.
