Children's Ministries

We believe children are important and they have great value in our eyes and God's eyes. They are the future. We desire to reach out to children and the whole family through our various children's ministries. We want to help children come to know and love God and develop a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, even at their young age. We believe this will provide an important spiritual foundation and stability that can have positive, lasting, exponential effects into their teen years and the rest of their life.

Our children's ministries include:

  • Sunday School at 10:00 am on Sundays. We have Sunday school (Christian education/spiritual formation/discipleship) classes for children, teens, and adults.
  • Children's Church during the Sunday morning worship services during the pastor's sermon. Children's church is typically for ages 2 to 10. Please note that we may not have children's church every Sunday.
  • Christmas Program: We have a Christmas program (a play, skit, or story) each year that the children and teens can be involved in. There are practices that usually start 4-6 weeks before the Christmas program which is usually the Sunday before Christmas.
  • Kids Camp: This fun 5-day summer camp is for children who have completed 2nd-6th grades and is through our Wisconsin District Church of the Nazarene. The 2018 Kids Camp is scheduled for August 6-10 at Sky Lodge Christian Camp in Montello, WI. For more information and the registration forms you can click on the link to our district church's website: www.wisnaz.com.
  • Vacation Bible School (VBS): Our annual VBS in the summer is for ages 3-12 (Pre-K through 6th grades) and is an awesome week filled with fun, friends, faith, and learning. For information about our VBS, go to the Vacation Bible School page under "ministries" on this website.

    *In your ongoing discussions with your children about safety, appropriate behavior, and social skills in all areas of life, would you like a tool to help teach, reinforce, and encourage your children about these important things? There is a link to a short video below that you can click on to watch with your kids (children and teens). The context of this video is children & youth programming, and it reviews 3 rules and 6 boundaries to help kids stay safe and avoid/prevent inappropriate behaviors:
