"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me.'" Mark 10:14
Here at Fishers of Men, our Children’s Ministry program is built around sharing that love with our kids in fun and relevant ways!
Children in Church
We are excited to have children join their families in worship! And each service we have special message just for children.
At both our 8:30am service and our 11:00am service, we have a weekly Children's Message where children are invited up to the front of the sanctuary during the service for a message geared just for them.
At our Kid's Corner bookshelf in the Gathering Area, we also have "Busy Boxes" available to borrow during the service that include crayons, books to read, and a quiet small toy or activity along with a packet of coloring pages and worksheet puzzles based on a Bible story or message. Just find the ages you want, take the box and activity pages into the sanctuary, and return them after the service.
We meet each week for Sunday School, from 9:45-10:45 am in the Children's Ministry Area (down the hall next to the sanctuary) starting at 2 years old through 6th grade. Children learn about Jesus' love through a fun mixture of age appropriate videos, puppets, skits, games, and crafts plus large and small group discussions for the older kids. Just head on down to the colorful paintings and talk to the people at front desk – they’ll get you set up and give you all the details. We’d love for you to join us!
Vacation Bible School
July 16-20, 2018 we will venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive and anchor in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms with Shipwrecked VBS: Rescued by Jesus.
At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. Shipwrecked is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun GizmosTM, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!
Due to an amazing turnout, we have had to close registration. If you would like to have your child/children put on the waiting list, please email us and include the name(s) and age(s) of your child/children.
VBS could not happen without the help of our awesome volunteers! Adults and students who have finished 5th grade or higher who are ready to share Jesus' love while having fun are welcome to help. For more information, including our online volunteer registration form, click here.
If you would like to help with donations for VBS, we have set up an Amazon Wishlist to make it easy for you. Click here to view our current list of items needed to help make VBS a success!
On Sundays we have a nursery service available for children 2 years old and under during both worship services and during the Sunday School/Bible Study hour. Our paid nursery staff have all been trained in CPR and have a current background check. This is a free nursery service, there's no charge or pre-registration, simply come by the nursery (C144) where you will sign your child in and receive an emergency pager should your child need you.
