Children's Ministry


Ministry Overview

 

At FBC Springfield we love teaching and caring for the elementary school children entrusted to us.  In addition to teaching our children the truths about God, we believe God wants to work through our children now instead of them having to grow older before they begin serving others.  For this reason our Children's Ministry regularly connects across the generations of our church through service projects and activities that bless senior adults or the whole church.  

As with all programming for minors, all regular volunteers have been screened via a background check and have been trained regarding best practices for safety and security.  Our children's ministry director is Carol Stewart (Carol's Bio).


Sunday Mornings

 

9:15AM-10:15AM:  During this hour, the elementary children are divided into age-graded classes to learn biblical truths about God, Christ, and how they should live in light of the gospel.  We have a great team of committed teachers that invest each week in our younger ones during the Sunday morning Bible study hour.

 

10:30AM-11:30AM:   We believe that our children learn a lot by being in at least part of the worship service on Sunday morning.  Prior to the sermon, we dismiss our younger children (K-2nd Grade) to children's church for an age-appropriate, fun-filled lesson.  We also offer activity pages and coloring pages for children of all ages to participate with the content of the service and Pastor Jason makes an effort to regularly interact with our children in the service. Children's church is every Sunday except the 1st Sunday of the month.


AWANA

Sunday Evenings

6:15PM-7:30PM:  On Sunday nights during the school year, our preschool children and elementary children can participate in our AWANA program.  AWANA teaches children to learn the truths about God and the Bible in a fun and rewarding environment.  See our AWANA page for more information or to register your children for this awesome program.
