CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

 UNIQUE PROGRAMS

 

Trunk r' Treat Costume Party: 
Heard nutty stories about unsafe candy or neighborhoods? Our Trunk r' Treat  Costume Party takes out all the questions about your child's safety. Dress up in your best costume and join us for action packed games, prizes, a costume contest, and safe trunk r' treating. If you're imagining a bunch of cars parked, trunks open, and a bowl of candy beside the spare tire in the trunk, you've got the wrong idea! Once again, our awesome volunteers make something good into something spectacular. Volunteers go all out when decorating their vehicles. One year Dorothy and her friends joined us on the way to Oz, the Skywalker's handed out candy instead of light sabers, and a talking deer head directed kids to the back of an SUV. We love this event and are sure you and your family will too! Come and join us here and we promise you'll get a taste of the church's fun loving personality.

 

Vacation Bible School: 
VBS describes our entire children's program in one week: fun, exciting, and wild about God! Unfortunately, a lot of people think you can't have fun as a Christian! Each year we blow that myth out of the water as we are joined by some good friends who are ready to have TONS of fun! Our VBS boasts and excitement-raising opening ceremony, realistic skits, outrageous crafts, tasty snacks, awesome opportunities to help others around the world, and a memorable closing ceremony!

 

Easter "Egg"stravaganza":
We know what Easter is about... Jesus proving once and for all who He is and the depth of His love for us! But who doesn't have fond memories of searching the house over for eggs or possibly even discovering the "Golden Egg" before everyone else? Join us for a hunt, crafts, an Easter book or skit, and a great time for children and adults alike! This is a great place to introduce you to other families of our congregation and just plain have fun!
