Upcoming Sunday Children’s Church Topics & News


FROM THE DESK OF THE YOUTH DIRECTOR, Denise St. John

Please find below the schedule for the Children’s Church Service (every other Sunday 10:30-11:30.)  Our children have an amazing opportunity to learn through role playing, the stories of the Bible.  Silvia Mende takes the stories and writes scripts in child friendly words.  She teaches the younger children the story, as the older children practice their lines to perform.  Thanks to the generosity of the very talented seamstress Linda Dameron, the church has costumes comparable to any theatre. I am very proud of this program, and very thankful for these talented.  Lets get the word out to more youth in our area!

CHILDREN’S WISDOM

New to the newsletter and website will be our own children sharing wisdom on Bible stories. 

After watching and performing the Ten Commandments (where Moses climbed the mountain to receive the tablets) we asked some of the children what was their favorite commandment.  Here is one of their responses. 

“My favorite commandment is to not be jealous. Because if you want what other people have, you’ll never be happy with what you have.” Dalena

If you want to share your child’s thought please e-mail Denise St John at denisestjohn4444@gmail.com
