CHECK IT OUT! We have a ton of fun and exciting things happening in our Children’s Ministry and invite you to come and join in the fun! Our Director of Children’s Ministry, Rachel Pyles, and her awesome team are always coming up with fun new ways to introduce our kids to scripture and help our children develop an understanding of God’s incredible power, love, and grace.
The Lighthouse: Sunday mornings from 9:45a – 12:30p
On Sunday mornings from 9:45a – 12:30p, we invite children to join us for The Lighthouse. While adults are in their Sunday School classes and worshiping at the Unleashed service, our kids are having their own exciting worship service, filled with songs, videos, large group activities, skits, and a whole lot of fun. Children also have a time to break out into their small groups with our adult leaders and dig further into God’s Word, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to personally connect to the week’s lesson. The curriculum we use is called The Gospel Project and takes children on a Biblical Journey, from Genesis all the way to Revelation. Take a peek at this video to check it out!
Joybells: Wednesday evenings* from 6:30p – 7:00p
Mission Friends: Wednesday nights* from 7pm to 8pm (2 years to 5th grade)
*Wednesday night activities run during the FCPS school year and when FCPS is closed for holiday, teacher work days, or inclement weather our activities for children are cancelled. *
CENTRIKID – JULY 11-15, 2016
In July 2016, our 3rd-6th graders had the opportunity to participate in CentriKid. During this week of high-energy, Christ-centered fun, our students had the opportunity to learn more about God’s incredible love for us, how we can trust in Him, and how to share this message with others. Worshiping in a room full of kids, watching them praise our Father… it’s an experience unlike any other. Our students each grew in their relationship with Jesus, developed a better understanding of important Biblical truths, and formed relationships with other kids their own age, adult leaders, camp staff, and even some of the Conference Center staff who were beyond delightful. We hope to return to CentriKid again in 2017, but until then will continue to foster the relationships we built with our students, the love they have for the Lord, and their understanding of God’s Word.
Cave Quest 2016 was an incredibly powerful week for our campers and volunteers, as we learned about following God’s path and not being afraid because God is always with us, shining His light in even the darkest times in our life and all we need to do is follow Him! We used Bible Buddies to focus on key Biblical Truths, each taught by a different Bible Buddy. We loved spending valuable time with our campers and volunteers. Thank you to everyone who made this event an incredible success!
