1st - 6th Grade
A Growing Place Ministries is dedicated to teaching kids the gospel in a way that is fun, exciting and encouraging. We want to equip KIDZ with the tools necessary to lead a life free from the entanglements of sin and to help them grow spiritually. We aspire to teach them the importance of hiding Gods word in their hearts and the blessings that come from knowing Him. We also promote family unity, spiritual growth and of course, having lots of fun in the process! Please feel free to contact me anytime. firstname.lastname@example.org, 330-2620-1471 ext. 208 or 330-466-4396
Current ministries we have are...
*KIDZ Church –KIDZ Church is for 1st-6th graders on Sunday mornings during the 10:00am service in the gym. 5th and 6th graders have their own teaching time during KIDZ church. In KIDZ Church, we learn a different virtue every month. We learn how to live out the virtue through music, games, video, small group time, skits, prayer and challenges. There are three core truths we want the KIDZ to get before they leave our area: I can trust God no matter what…I need to make the right choice …I need to treat others the way I want to be treated.
* Sunday School – Our instruction time is from 9:00am-9:45am and is held in the gym.
*KIDZ Biz – A weekly take-home paper for KIDZ and their parents. It includes a “What’s Happening” page, a puzzle page and a God Time page. We encourage KIDZ and their parents to spend time each day in God’s Word and form a life-time habit of reading God’s Word daily.
*Bible Quizzing – During the School year, our KIDZ are encouraged to be part of the Bible Quiz team. They study one book of the Bible and then quiz other KIDZ on our district 4 times a year.
*Missions – Our district has an annual Missions Day and a Work and Witness Day where KIDZ can learn first-hand about missions in our communities and around the world.
*Talent Festival – Our district has a Talent Festival day where our KIDZ get to share their talents and see other KIDZ share theirs.
