First Christian Church
We use TrueBlessings and modify it for each class to instill three Foundational Truths: God made me, God loves me, and God is with me. We go through The Big God Story using different story telling techniques and activities each week. Each part of The Big God Story is repeated two weeks in a row. This is done purposely for repetition. Each week's volunteers interact with your child by engaging their sense to explore God's Word through a variety of visual, auditory and other sensory activities. A typical schedule will include worship, The Big God Story, craft and snack Sunday Mornings at 11:00 am.
We use the TruStory curriculum which incorporates all of history, stretching from Genesis to Revelation. Each lesson begins with a connect activity that allows children to get to know one another better. Volunteers will use different storytelling techniques to tell the Big God Story. Each lesson will end with a worship response activity. We intentionally create environments where children are taught to listen for the leading of the Holy Spirit and apply Biblical truths to their lives. Our Kids Church is Sunday Mornings during the service after our worship time.
The Children's Ministry at FCCMC is dedicated to partner with parents to show the love of Jesus to every toddler and elementary student that we serve. There is a compelling story in Matthew 19:13-15 where Jesus specifically made time for children to come face to face with Jesus. We want every child that we meet to share that same experience where they come face to face with Jesus. We do that through interesting teaching, fun games, and most importantly through the Holy Spirit. It is our hope that God will use us in such a way that we are able to show your child how much we love Jesus, and in return encourage your child to love Jesus themselves.
