Children's Ministries


At First Assembly we believe that discipleship and faith building are essential for all ages. Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it". Here you will find teachers and leaders with a real heart for loving and leading children, whether in the nursery or in Light Brigade Children's Church, your children will have a wonderful time as they learn about Jesus.

We offer activities for all age groups!




Sundays & Wednesdays in our nurseries for ages
4 months - 4th birthday!


The Sunlight Kids motto is, "Sunbeams shine for Jesus"!
This special ministry for children is more than just time in the nursery, it is time for having lots of fun and learning about Jesus in a way that kids will never forget. Our brand new toddler and infant nurseries include a paging system that is used to call parents during services and as part of our security system for checking children in and out of the nurseries.

Sunlight Kids meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings!


 


Sundays Mornings for children ages 4 - 12

"Light Brigade" is our Sunday Morning Children's Church. Following the Praise and Worship time in the Sunday Morning Celebration Service, children are dismissed to Light Brigade in the Fellowship Hall.
They are carefully signed in and out each week for their safety. Light Brigade offers a wide array of teaching methods, puppets, fun games and object lessons to deliver a message to boys and girls to build godly character and to learn the Word of God. Teachers are very creative to make Light Brigade a special event for kids to look forward to each week. They also have opportunities to earn gold coins they can spend at a quarterly "coin store." Above all, children are shown the love of Jesus!


"Little Light Brigade" is designed for younger children (ages 4 & 5) to split off after the preliminaries, puppets and other portions of the full service with the older children. Then, they are given time for hands on activities and a
version of that day's message on their level.

 




Wednesdays at 7pm for ages 4 - Kindergarten

The Rainbows pledge is, "As a Rainbow, I will be a good helper, pleasing Jesus every day." Rainbows is a club for children that meets on Wednesday nights at 7pm in the modular building. There are snacks, fun hands-on crafts, Bible lessons, scripture memorization, many different activities and special unit badges to be earned!




Wednesdays for Elementary aged children in the 1st - 6th grade


KOTR the Frog is the mascot for our Wednesday night program for elementary aged program called "Kidz on the Rock." Each Wednesday at 7pm, 1st - 6th graders meet in the modular building for a time of Bible based teaching to challenge kids to live for Jesus every day!. KOTR often includes hands on learning opportunities, activities and games, crafts, snacks, outdoor play and more!
 


 


Program for 1st - 6th Graders
Monthly practices and five special competions throughout the annual quiz season.


Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ) was created and designed to help children develop a love for the Bible and an understanding that its truth can guide their lives daily. Junior Bible Quiz offers a fun, exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths in God’s Word. Through cooperative learning, children work together on teams to learn and understand the questions and answers from the Bible Fact-Pak. Then using cooperative competition the children meet with other teams for a fun quizzing match. There are twenty questions in a match, with two teams of quizzers trying to beat each other to the buzzers to get the first shot at the answers. It has been said that JBQ is the fastest growing discipleship program in children’s ministry.

& Handbell Choir

Seasonal Practices for Kindergarten - 6th Graders

Our Children's Choir has performed many different musicals and ministered in concert many times over the years. The Handbell Choir
is another wonderful way for children to find a place of ministry through music in the church. Both choirs are used for special music during the year and for seasonal presentations.

Watch your bulletins and announcements for upcoming events for the choirs!





Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge (BGMC)
is a ministry developed by the Assemblies of God to teach children to begin a lifelong habit of giving to missions. On the FIRST Sunday of each month, preschool & elementary aged children bring their "buddy barrels" containing coins they have collected throughout the month. Then, those funds are sent in to join money sent by thousands of other children to help missionaries reach children with the truth of the Gospel and the love of Jesus!

Here's a fun link to learn more about BGMC.
There are fun activities and games for your kids to enjoy: www.bgmckids.ag.org/
