Our Mission for Children's Ministry is to develop a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, within the hearts of the children in our church and in our community through enriching activities, ministries and special events that encourage a desire to share the Good News with family, friends and others.
BASIC KID NOTES
All volunteers have gone through a child protection training and have had a back ground check. Volunteers are asked to check in and get their name tag so children and family members know that they are in the gym to have fun with them.
We ask that all families stop at the check in station before their kiddos head into the gym. We will have your child wear a name tag so we know they are supposed to be in there. We will ask you to fill out a registration form if you are new to Bible EFC. Check in will begin 15 minutes prior to service.
We ask parents/adults to wait until the gym doors are open and then we will release children once a volunteer sees you and can bring them to you.
We strive to do our best to love your children and protect them. We will have the gym doors locked when there is not a check in attendant present. Volunteers and children will be able to exit the gym in the event of an emergency but it limit access to the gym while ministry is happening. Do not worry if you arrive late or need to pick up your children early and there is not an attendant outside the gym doors. Please ring the doorbell located towards the top of the door and a Children's Volunteer will greet you at the door and help you.
CHILDREN ON SUNDAYS
Children's options are currently only offered during the 10:15 AM service. Our last Sunday of regular Sunday school is May 23, 2021. We will have a summer ministry option later in the summer.
Our nursery is designed to allow parents (and all adults) the opportunity to fully take part of our worship service and know that your kiddos are cared for and loved. Nursery is offered for children birth to 2.
This classroom is available for children 3 & 4 year olds. This also include children that are in 4k or preschool.
ELEMENTARY SUNDAY SCHOOL
After check in, students will head to the classrooms that our Children's Director will help divide them into. This year will look a little different, we are going to try and keep families groups together more instead of diving up by grades. Once the service officially starts, children will come out to the gym for a large group lesson. They will be spaced out throughout the gym to keep them in their classroom pods. Students will then break back into their pods for some other activities and things to help dig deeper into the lesson.
CHILDREN ON WEDNESDAYS
Our Awana program runs from 6:15-7:30. Check in starts at 6:00 PM. We ask that if you show up after 6:30 you walk your child in. Our last night of Awana for the school year is April 21, 2021.
Here is our Awana information Packet.
We have an Awana at Home Program options this year too. Please contact Sue Bannan to learn more about registration for In-Person or Awana at Home.
OTHER CHILDREN FUN
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
This summer's VBS is July 18-22, 2021. From 5:30-8 PM. Children currently in preschool thru 5th grade are invited to join us for a week of fun as they learn about how God listens, provides, forgives, protects and rules. Register here. Please let us know if you are interested in volunteering.
SEEK & FIND EVENT
Instead of VBS, in 2020, we had 2 one-night events for children to come together in smaller groups to Seek Jesus & Find out how much He loves them.
We recommend and offer a partial scholarships for children that regularly attend Bible EFC. The partial scholarship only applies to children going to Arrowhead Bible Camp. Contact Krishna to learn more.
