Kids Church @ The River is for 4 year olds through grade 6.
The first Sunday of each month is our BGMC Sunday. BGMC stands for Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge. We learn about a different country each month and what things the missionaries are doing there and how BGMC has helped them by providing supplies like puppets and Sunday School curriculum or even things like fresh drinking water. Our goal is to raise $1600.00 in 2018 to send to missionaries all around the world.
The other Sundays during the month we use High Voltage Kids Curriculum. It is active and fun, using video, games, scripture memorization and "Watt's Up" to help kids remember the main point. During September and October we will be using the series, "The Garden: A Series of Unfortunate Events." In this series you child will learn that Satan has no friends. He does not distinguish between an adult and a child when it comes to his plan for human beings. He wants to snare us in the trap of temptation and cause as much pain as he can when we give into sin.
Children are often unaware of the traps the devil has laid out for them. Because their eyes are not open and wary, they end up falling into traps of lying, deceit, stealing, revenge, and many other temptations.
In this series of lessons, your children will look at the story of the original sin from the perspective of each of the characters involved: Satan (serpent), Adam, Eve, and God. As we examine the story from all of these
different perspectives, we will see the range of emotions and impact that the same series of events had on each of these characters.
Some Sundays we have FAMILY CHURCH. Family Church is when kids stay in the Sanctuary with their families. During these Sundays, we have Busy Bags with color & activity pages and books available.
