Matthew 19:14 tells us “Jesus said, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” At Faith Alliance, our children’s ministry department helps our youngest members learn about the word of God in a fun, engaging format that includes Bible study, music, and prayer each Sunday morning and Wednesday evening.
Children at Faith—Rooted in Christ, Growing in Faith
Nursery care for children ages 3 and under is offered during Sunday morning services and during the Wednesday night Journey adult class. We have a paging system that offers comfort and security for our parents. In the educational wing, parents must sign their children in at the check-in site where they will receive their pager. For security reasons, children will only be released to a parent with the pager at the end of the service. We also offer a check-in/out computerized system for regular attenders to sign in all children for safety and security purposes.
Kids Church, 10:30 a.m. Sundays
Kids church is for children ages 3 through 5th grade during our second worship service at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday.
The Garden—Preschoolers meet in rooms 3 and 4 for worship, lesson, and puppet time. They participate in an interactive activity with their lesson, followed by a morning snack. After the lesson, children have free play to enjoy Legos, dress up, blocks, or kitchen items in our classroom. The preschoolers stay in the same classrooms throughout the morning.
The Orchard—Kindergarten and 1st grade
The Forest—2nd and 3rd grades
The Jungle—4th and 5th grades
Kindergarteners through 5th graders meet together for a time of worship and singing, and then move to their age-appropriate class, lesson, and morning activity. We use “Explore the Bible” during our lesson time, a curriculum that gets kids to dig deep into Scripture and develop a foundation for life transformation.
Wednesday Night Kids: 6:30-8:00 p.m. every Wednesday, September through May
Come join us on Wednesday nights as we worship, pray, sing, and learn together! The Garden preschoolers meet for a time of play and learning from the material called “Discipleland”.
We have separate classes for The Orchard (kindergarten and 1st grade), The Forest (2nd and 3rd grades), and The Jungle (4th and 5th grades). After an hour in the classroom learning from “The Answers in Genesis” curriculum, we all meet together for a time of singing and praying. Don’t miss out. We would love to have you join us.
We also do service projects throughout the year to carry over our theme from Vacation Bible School. Trips to a local food pantry, nursing homes, and projects for homeless shelters and missionaries are being planned.
Join us for special events held throughout the year such as mission week, harvest party, Christmas caroling, prayer retreat, and service projects. Check back through the year on the website for more specific details.
