Children of God

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

We welcome all children between the age of 0 and 11 to attend Children Worship and Sunday School.  We care deeply for the wellbeing of families.  Our Children ministry exist to assist and walk alongside of parents who strive to build a strong family.  We have Nursery Ministry, Preschool Ministry, and Elementary Ministry onsite!    As for Preteens, teens, and young adults, they are welcome to attend English Worship at the Chapel on Main Floor.   (provide link of EM)

 

Nursery - Toddler

Nursery (Age 0-3)

Infants and toddlers rely on their parents for security.  Parents will be the primary caretaker of their own child.  We recognize parents with young child(ren) need support physically, mentally and spiritually.  Connecting with other parents in the Nursery room is highly encouraged.  We usually have circle time, Bible Stories, snacks, and free time for toddlers.  Weekly sermon is recorded and upload on Church website, so parents can get spiritual food at their convenience. 

Pre K-Kindergarten

Children between 4-6 are learning how the world works.  Their cognitive development is peak.  We believe having a strong start is important.  Our pre K- Kindergarten Ministry is dedicated to disciple children through love and care.  We have a team of 4 every Sunday introducing God to children through worship songs, Bible Stories, and Crafts.    Worship songs helps children express emotionally; Bible Stories helps children know God in their mind; Craft helps enforces what has been learned.    

Kornerstone (Elementary Grade 1-6)

“K” stands for kids.  In ancient times, the cornerstone is a foundation stone that is the first stone to be set during construction.  It is used to make sure the stones are laid parallel to the cornerstone. It determines stability of the entire structure.              

 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.”

                                                                                                                     Isaiah 28:16 

“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the Saints and also members of the household of God, 20 built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone.”

                                                                                                                     Ephesians 2:19-20

Therefore, our Sunday classes are named Cobbles, Pebbles, Stones, and Rocks!
