Club Names & Descriptions

 

Puggles- recognize the learning ability of older 2 year olds & younger 3 year olds by introducing biblical precepts at church and equipping parents to teach them at home.  Through teaching cards, activities, music and games, Puggles is an enriching program for your pre-Cubbies children.

Cubbies- celebrate the spiritual potential of preschoolers by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.  Through story time, music, games & activities, Cubbies learn about the greatness of God and His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Fun puppets and all their “Cubbies friends” will keep these Cubbies anxious for the next club meeting.

Sparks- children, age’s kindergarten thru second grade, will love their bright red vests, exciting game time, and spending time learning about the people and events of the Bible building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Jesus Christ. Sparks is divided into three years, HangGlider, WingRunner, and SkyStormer, where clubbers explore Bible stories from scripture, memorize Bible verses and complete handbook activities. The Sparks three year curriculum takes your child on a journey thru the entire Bible!

Truth & Training (T&T)- answers a child’s questions about God and the Bible. Third thru sixth graders will grow in the grace of Jesus Christ thru handbook time, group lessons and of course game time!  T&T is different in that it is actually comprised of two clubs each with a distinct curriculum, uniform, and awards.  T&T Ultimate Adventure is for third & fourth graders, and T&T Ultimate Challenge is for clubbers in the fifth and sixth grades.

THRIVE TEEN MINISTRY

​Our teen ministry is designed with 7th -12th graders in mind. In a world full of chaos and confusion, it is important that the leaders of tomorrow have a place for activities, ministry, and fellowship that will help them develop into the mature Christ-like believers that God designed them to become. Our teen ministry desires to come along side parents, with the distinct purpose of leading, guiding, and developing the lives of their teens with a love for the Word of God and a desire to obey Him with their whole heart.

Our Thrive Teen Ministry meets on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm for a time of prayer and Bible study around the Word of God. Young people learn Biblical principles that God has set in His Word and how to use them in every situation they face.

Throughout the year, we set aside time for our teenagers to develop
Christ- honoring fellowship.

OUR MUSIC MINISTRIES

​Music has been a tradition in the New Testament church and our music is traditional with a  little flavor of Southern Gospel and modern Christian.

Our Minister of Music, Bro. Devin Cominskie, directs the choir for singing on Sunday mornings and special services.  Soloists and other groups minister in most of the weekly services.  We also have special musical groups for concerts, revivals and conferences..
