The ministry of Faith Development meets on the third Sunday of each month after worship.
The purpose of this ministry is to help people deepen their knowledge and love of God. Through a variety of experiences that nurture all ages, the Faith Development ministry strives to provide connections to encourage a greater understanding of Biblical teachings and God’s love.
Faith Development is responsible for:
CHECK OUT OUR PRAYGROUND!
We love having children of all ages in worship with us! We have a special Prayground area in the sanctuary where parents and children can sit together, and large enough to fit a stroller as needed. There are special activities for children to do during the worship service -- quiet toys, drawing/coloring, puzzles, stuffed animals, books, etc. -- with a table and chairs just their size.
We also have an unstaffed nursery for parents who need to take their children out of the service. Ask an usher how to get to the nursery. In the nursery is a variety of toys and activities, a crib, changing table, baby swing, and children's books. Parents must stay with their children, but there is a TV with the worship service live-streamed so you don't miss any of the service.
We have “Kids’ Kits” available for families and children to check out for at-home activities. Each kit centers around a particular theme: “The Good Book”, “Out of the Water”, “Birds of the Air”, and “Trees”. It’s a type of “Sunday School” in a kit!
Within each kit, you will find 3 lessons with Bible stories, an opening activity, some discussion questions, a craft or game with instructions, a song, and an ending prayer. Most of the needed materials and supplies are included in the kit. These are great hands-on activities that families can do together.
Families can check out a kit from the church to use at home when it best fits into your schedule. When families are finished, the instructions, samples and unused supplies from the kit should be returned to the church. Kits can be checked out during church office hours, Monday-Thursday 8 am to Noon. Kits can also be checked out on Sunday mornings.
