Our desire is to partner with parents by providing a place of safety and fun where children from birth to Grade 6 can come to grow in their faith and love for Jesus through relevant and creative teaching, worship and pastoring. All Children’s Ministry teachers and small group leaders love Jesus and love working with children and, as part of our application process, have passed a Child Abuse Registry check and a Criminal Record Search.

In order to serve your children most effectively, we have divided our programs into three age-groups:

Noah’s Ark: Birth to Kindergarten

Panet Road campus
This area includes an Infant Nursery for nursing moms and crawling babies; separate classes for one-year-olds, two-year-olds and three-year-olds; and a combined class for four & five-year-olds.

South Osborne campus
This area includes an Infant Nursery for nursing moms; a toddler room for crawling babies and toddlers; and a combined class for three to five-year olds.

Heirforce: Grades 1-4

Panet Road campus
Elementary-aged children meet as a large group for activities, singing and a Bible lesson with a skilled large-group teacher and then split into age- and gender-specific small groups (eg: Grade 2 girls) for follow-up activities with a caring leader.

South Osborne campus
Kids in Grades 1-4 currently meet together for a large-group teaching and then split into small care groups for follow-up with small group leaders.

Impact: Grades 5-6

Panet Road & South Osborne campus
Preteen boys and girls enjoy their own group where a teacher facilitates a dynamic, Bible-based lesson (often on DVD) and then divides the class into smaller discussion groups for follow-up with a caring small group leader.

Special Events

Vacation Bible School
Most summers, both our South Osborne and Panet congregations host a week-long Vacation Bible School out of their buildings. These are open to all children going into Grades 1-6 from either congregation as well as the communities surrounding each location, and typically draw anywhere from 25 kids (South Osborne) to 65 kids (Panet). Kids and their teenage small-group leaders always love the crazy games, tasty snacks, challenging crafts, catchy songs and exciting, interactive Bible lessons! Not to mention the fun and talented adults!
