Children Ministries

 

All of our Children’s Ministries are developed on the foundation of the Bible. Our teachers work hard to make sure that what they are teaching and portraying to the children comes directly from the Word of God.

We believe that we are a complement to what is already being taught in the home.  It is our desire to give support to every parent as they seek to provide a godly home life.  If we can ever be of more assistance, please ask.

We count it a privilege to be able to be used by God, in any small way, in the life of your child.

 

 Nursery – Kim Cleary

All babies 0-24 months are welcome here.  Nursery is a loving, safe environment headed up by Nancy Hlad.  Each Nursery worker desire to demonstrate the love of God as they care for your child

Sunday School – Kim Cleary S.S. Superintendent

We offer Sunday School for all ages. From Toddlers through High School we desire to help you instill in your child a love for Jesus and a love for His Holy Word.

In the younger grades your child will enjoy singing their favorite Christian songs that are designed to teach the truths of God.  Each week they will hear a well prepared Bible lesson. Your children will also cement the truth of the lesson in their lives by making a craft or coloring page to take home.  One of our most cherished times each week is when your children share their prayer requests and praises.  What a joy it is to hear young people praying together.

In our older grades our young people are challenged with strong Biblical teaching that teaches them about our great God.  These truths are then translated into everyday strength to make a stand for Christ.  Classes are designed for interaction and discussion.

Jr. Church – Barry Camden

God has blessed us with great teachers.  Sue Camden has been teaching children for a number of years (we are not allowed to disclose how many) and is very gifted in sharing the Word of God with children.  Sue runs our Jr Church group that meets during the message time for the adults and teens.

We also provide Nursery and a Jr. Church called Jacob’s Town for our younger children.

Awana Clubs combines Games, Bible Lessons, and Verse Memorization to teach our children the importance of God’s Word.  Awana clubs is a worldwide Non-Denominational Program that we host and we are excited about what God has been doing in the lives of our children each year.

JBC Youth Groups – Judy Kozo & Chelsea Hlad

JBC Youth Group is designed for children between the ages of 10 and 18 and is primarily a time for children to have Christian fellowship.  Meets every Sunday night during the school year and consists of games times, hobbies, praying and age appropriate Bible study. This group is a great practice for your children to understand what it means to be the church.

Over the past several years, our teens have been committed to ministering to our neighbors at the local hotels. Twice a month, our youth group children provide food and friendship in an effort to share the love of Christ.

These groups also provide a safe place for teens to come and hang out and share their lives as Christians.
