We Love Kids!!!
Balloons, Puppets, Gospel Illusions, Skits, and more – This is what you have to look forward to when you visit us during our children’s programs. Brother Dustin makes learning about the Bible easy to understand and fun with something new nearly every time you come. You will learn wonderful things about God, His Word, and how to follow Him every day whether it’s at Church, school, or even at home. Every child is loved and welcomed, and everyone will have a great time as we discover more about our Savior together.
For a child at Shady Grove, Sunday morning services start off with exciting songs and competitive Scripture memory. A ventriloquist and balloon artist, our children’s pastor delivers messages that are eye- catching and interactive in order to help children understand Biblical principles and lessons. From illusions and puppets, to stories and games Sunday mornings at Children’s Church are filled with fun and with the Scriptural nourishment that children need for following our Lord Jesus!
Children come to Little Grove and begin by gathering into teams to study a Bible lesson together. During the course of the evening the teams assemble for songs and a time for Scripture memorizing. The preaching time during Little Grove is one of the highlights of the week, and is usually accompanied by a skit performed by the teachers, or with a puppet performance. Little Grove is a wonderful time for kids to get together for fellowship and learning more about the Bible!
Yes, a Bible Institute designed especially for children! On Friday evenings, students can come for an in-depth and challenging journey through the Old and New Testaments. Kids’ Kollege is a more thorough and detailed study of the Scriptures than our other children’s ministries, but it is also a relaxed and interactive discussion of the Bible that students really enjoy. For children that want to learn more about the Bible, Kid’s Kollege will provide them with just that opportunity!
