CHILDREN ARE PART OF THE CHURCH

We believe the Bible teaches that children are a part of God's family.  Jesus himself calls children to follow him.  In fact, all people are to model a childlike faith.  It is no surprise that we are serious about ministry to children and their families.


Our primary ministry focus is to provide biblical teaching for children.  This is offered during Discipleship Hour.  Learn more below.  For more information, please contact Heather Grigg.


Children's Ministry Leadership Team: Stacey Bourgeois, Melissa Evette, Melanie Graves, Robin Kiser, Angi Powell, Chelsea Price, and Cathy Ruth. 

 

Gospel

TEaching

We want our children to know the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our curriculum is The Gospel Story for Kids by Marty Machowski. This three-year curriculum surveys the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and purposefully points to the Gospel in every lesson.   


The Children’s Church teachers plan 45 minute lessons based on The Gospel Story Bible. The lessons include prayer, teaching, object lessons, activities and art.  


Two companion family devotionals, Long Story Short (OT) and Old Story New (NT) are available for parents to reinforce and deepen the truths that are presented in the Children’s Church Lessons on Sunday.


Safe & Welcoming

Environment

We desire to provide a safe and welcoming environment for children to learn the Story of God.  We have classrooms specifically designed with each age group in mind.  Children's Church meets in the lower level of our Ministry Center (27 S. Trade St. Tryon, NC 28782).  Feel free to come by and visit us!
