Pre-School Ark (4yr olds and kindergarten)
Active, safe, fun and engaging, Sunday School in the Pre-School Ark is an opportunity for little children to learn about God’s love through classic Bible stories presented in age-appropriate ways. As with all of our ministries with children and youth, our teachers are trained to follow “safe-sanctuary” procedures.
Joy Street (for grades 1-5)
Joy Street provides a safe and loving environment nurturing our children in faith and fostering a lifelong relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Joy Street happens in a collection of rooms, one for storytelling and music, one for film and one for art. In addition, the nearby church kitchen is often the site of “hands on” learning. Using a rotation model each Bible story is explored through a variety of means over the course of several weeks. As with all our ministries with children and youth, our teachers are trained to follow “safe-sanctuary” procedures.
Children Worship and Wonder
Children Worship and Wonder creates an environment where young children can encounter and worship God in uniquely meaningful and developmentally appropriate ways. Based on Montessori ideas and Godly Play, participating children ages 3-7 (8) leave “big church” in the sanctuary after the children’s blessing to go together to our Children Worship and Wonder Center where they use all of their senses and motor skills to experience the presence of God.
As with all of our ministries with children and youth, our teachers are trained to follow “safe-sanctuary” procedures.
Our infant and toddler nursery for children through age three welcomes the littlest members of the church community in a clean, safe, loving environment for care. From 8:45 am until 12:15 pm most Sundays.
Our nursery caregivers are Pediatric First Aid, CPR and AED certified. As with all of our ministries with children and youth, our nursery caregivers are trained to follow “safe-sanctuary” procedures.
Kamp Kaleo, located in Burwell, Nebraska, along the North Loop River, is a special place where our youth can experience God in a natural environment while engaging in lots of recreational activities.
Campers, starting at age 5, can enjoy arts and crafts, horseback riding, canoeing, campfires, outdoor games, and much more. By the time they are in middle school and high school our kids are counting down the days to camp. Each year a different weekly theme encourages spiritual growth and building a closer relationship to God. Kamp Kaleo offers a lifetime of lasting memories and enhances the faith experience of our young people. For more information, please click here.
