Children's Programs

Sunday School

The Sunday School hour occurs each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and lasts until 11:55 a.m.  Classes meet in the Education Wing with grade levels listed at each door. 

For information or how to become involved in the Sunday School program please see Rudy Othmer, Education Chairperson. Call the church office at (269) 367-4800 for contact information.

King’s Club

One of the best opportunities for children ages 3 through 5th grade to learn about the love of Jesus and the basics of growing up in Christ is to become part of the King’s Club.  This children’s ministry is offered Sunday evenings from 6-7:30 p.m. during the school year.  Through the use of music, puppets, crafts, Bible lessons and games the children learn to apply biblical truths to everyday life.  All children are welcome to attend. 

For more information, call the church office at (269) 367-4800 .

Summer Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is held the second week of June  and is for children who are preschool age through 5th grade.  The times are from 9:00am-noon Monday through  Friday.  VBS is a fun time of songs, puppets, crafts,  snacks, games, and, of course, a Bible lesson.

       Day Camp

Day Camp is a week long camp whose purpose is to introduce the love of God in Christ to the children of our community.  This free camp is conducted at our church during the daytime and is held in June for children going into the 3rd through the 5th grades. A staff of volunteers refers children to the camp, provides leadership and supervision, offers scholarships to underwrite the cost, provides transportation to and from the camp, donates and prepares food, and prays daily for the children.

A Day Camp follow-up program runs during the school year and is called After School Kids (ASK).  It meets on Wednesdays from 4:00-5pm at West Elementary. 


For more information or to volunteer, call the church office at (269) 367-4800 for contact information.
