Champs is our ministry created just for children 1st-4th grade and our Preteen 5th-6th grade ministry. Our vision for children is simply this…Help them to know Jesus as their personal Savior, make Him their best friend forever and become a CHAMPion for Him!
Kids 1st through 6th grade can experience a safe, age-appropriate environment where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We believe FUN and LAUGHTER are required!
Small Group Bible Study
1st-4th Grades – 9:15am
Our Sunday morning experience in Champs is geared towards capturing kids attention with relevant and life application teaching. We believe learning
truths should be fun, exciting and motivating – just like the Bible! Kids attend age-divided classrooms with teachers who use curriculum especially designed for each age group. We are all about helping kids begin and grow in their relationship with Jesus!
Small Group Bible Study
5th-6th Grades – 9:15am
Preteens learn Biblical truths in their small group classes that can be applied during the week to the many challenges they face. The Bible has guidelines and instructions for everything they can encounter as they journey to the Middle School years. We strive to give them to tools to navigate that journey.
1st-4th Grades – 6:30-8:00pm
AWANA is a international program that offers an age-divided Bible Club type format. Each club uses a variety of age-appropriate activities that help kids experience:
- Scripture Memory
- Bible lessons that teach kids who to apply God’s Word to their everyday life
- Participate in high-energy, fast-paced fun game-time
- Develop an awareness of mission projects both locally and overseas.
- Learn how to share their faith in Jesus
- Develop relationships that with friends and caring adults
5th-6th Preteen – 6:30-8:00pm
The Preteen Awana program addresses the needs of 11-12 years olds as they prepare for the transition to the middle school years. With special emphasis on small group discussions and helping preteens dive deeper in their relationship with Jesus mixed with fun games, Awana Preteen provides an atmosphere just for them.
Throughout the year, we sponsor many different type of events and activities for kids and families from serving at a Homeless Shelter to overnight sleepovers and fun outings.
Each summer, preteens who have completed 4th-6th grades can attend our week-long Camp in Wise, Va. Adults who work with them throughout the year help chaperone this exciting week. Each day, we spend time in Bible Study and a Nightly Worship Service. Throughout the week, we play lots of wacky games (some very messy), swim and just hang out. It’s a week of surprise, fun and adventure. Our preteens love it!
