Our Vision for Children’s Ministries:
Raising Christian Children
Our Ministry Goals:
- Bring children to Jesus Christ
- Teach them God’s Word
- Help them to build supportive relationships between themselves and other children and adults
- Teach them to serve God and others
Jr. Church (3 years - 3rd grade)
We know that it’s difficult for most children to focus during services, that’s why we offer Jr. Church during the Sunday services. Before going in to the service, please bring your children (3 years old - 3rd grade) to the Ark for a worship service designed just for them. Children will be brought to the back of the Sanctuary before Communion, during the sharing of the peace, for you to pick up.
Sunday School (3 years - 6th grade)
Sunday School is offered on Sundays at 10:15am. We will be dancing, singing, and digging deeper in our knowledge of God, with lessons, snacks, crafts, and games!
Angel Wings (3 years - 6th grade)
Angel Wings is a Christian fellowship group for children ages kindergarten through the sixth grade and meets Wednesday nights during the school year. Friends! Fun! Food! All children are welcome! Contact the church office for more information. The phone number is (716) 625-8306.
Hot Chocolate with God (K-6th grade)
Hot Chocolate with God (H.C.W.G.) is a small group Bible Study for girls in K-6th grade, held during the school year on Friday nights. The girls do a lot of fun things throughout the church, and hold monthly meetings.
As the girls volunteer their time, they build relationships, make new friends, have fun, learn about God and how he wants us to live in this journey called life.
The book “Hot Chocolate With God” by Camryn Kelly with Jill and Erin Kelly is used as their devotional. In the book there is a scripture that says this: “Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in faith and in purity".
All are welcome!
Contact Adrienne Demmin in the church office for more information. The phone number is (716) 625-8306. Or email Adrienne at firstname.lastname@example.org
S'mores (K-6th grade)
S’mores is a small group program for boys in K-6th grade. They gather together on most Friday nights from 6-9pm for dinner, fun and games, fellowship and a small group devotion. They learn about God, The Bible and learn about the right choices to make to become strong, Christian men.
S’mores is split into K-3rd grade and 4th-6th grade groups, and a 7th+ grade leader group. The 7th+ grade group helps to lead the younger groups.

Vacation Bible School
Each August we host VBS to over 200 children from 3 years old to 6th grade, with countless volunteers in their teens and all the way up to teach and guide the children.
This year's VBS was a great success and we can't wait until next year! Information on next year's VBS will be coming soon.
