The Children’s Ministry of Keith Church offers activities and opportunities to learn more about Christ for children ages three through fifth grade. Programs for this age group include Sunday School, Wednesday night Bible studies, Children’s Church and Children’s Choir. We also host special events throughout the year, including a birthday social, Children’s Sabbath, Vacation Bible School, summer day trips to fun locations throughout the area and our annual Keith Family Christmas.
Meets each week at 9:30 a.m. with classes available for children ages birth to fifth grade. Classes are divided as follows:
- Nursery: Birth to two Years
- Two, Three & Four Year Olds Class
- Kindergarten & First Grades
- Second & Third Grades
- Fourth & Fifth Grades (Jr. Youth)
Sunday School teachers use a curriculum with age appropriate materials that provides a Bible study and fun activities. Lessons encourage participation and enhance each child’s Christian education. This summer’s lessons in all classes will focus on “Heroes of the Bible.”
We encourage children to stay in the worship service; however, you may choose to send your child to Children’s Church – a child focused program offering a Bible lesson and craft for children age four through first grade. This ministry takes place after the children’s sermon during the 10:35 a.m. modern worship service – The Gathering, each Sunday.
Wednesday Nights at Keith
Throughout the school year, we offer Children’s Choir and Bible studies most Wednesdays from 6 – 7 p.m. and dinner at 5 p.m., exceptions include fall break, holidays, spring break and during special services.
Wednesday Night Schedule includes:
6 p.m. Bible study for K – Third Grade
6 p.m. Choir for Jr. Youth
6:30 p.m. Bible study for Jr. Youth
6:30 p.m. Choir for K – Third Grade
Our Jr. Youth members are fourth and fifth grade children who are not yet old enough to take part in activities with our Youth Group, but too mature to be grouped with the younger children. These students participate in Bible studies, Worship Arts, mission trips and special activities designed specifically to encourage their spiritual and emotional development.
Vacation Bible School
Keith Church hosts VBS each summer. This year’s theme is “Hero Central” and will take place June 26 – 30 from 9 a.m. until Noon. Learn more and register by visiting our VBS page.
We offer opportunities for children ages three through fifth grade to attend fun events and visit exciting places one or two week days each month throughout the summer. Check back for the 2017 trip schedule! Most trips require an additional waiver to be completed by a parent or guardian prior to the day of the trip. Please stop by the church office to pick up and complete those forms.
We offer a warm, safe and nurturing environment in our nursery for infants and toddlers up to age three every Sunday from 8:30 a.m. until the last worship service ends. Our nursery staff is experienced in child care and have completed Safe Sanctuaries training. Also, all toys in the nursery are developmentally age appropriate.
