Sunday School Bible Study – 10am
JAM (Jesus and Me) Children’s Ministry
We are very excited to announce a new JAM program for the children we implemented in September 2017.
Our main focus for the children are Evangelism, Discipleship, Missions & Growth. Our new curriculum is The Gospel Project offered by Lifeway Publications.
The Gospel Project®
The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
The Gospel Project® Features:
* Chronological approach allows kids to see how Christ fits into the whole Bible.
- *Spend equal time in the Old and New Testaments, learning how every story connects to the gospel.
- *Bible stories brought to life through creative teaching elements.
- *Family resources and age alignment make it easy for families to grow in the gospel together.
Our curriculum will be used in all areas of teaching for the children with each class that is held – the same message being taught every week consistently. In this way, the children are exposed to the gospel thoroughly. All the JAM Team Members, along with Preacher Tony, will be on the same page and working together to make this ministry a success. We all have made a commitment to bring our best – energy, excitement, coordination, anticipation – to this program each week.
We moved our children’s area to the horseshoe (library floor). We will be decorating a few of the rooms, hanging The Gospel Project® posters, putting up a prayer wall. We want to make this area feel fun and exciting, like Kids! And give them a sense of belonging in their church. We hope that you will come up and visit “The Horseshoe”.

We are asking everyone to please pray for this ministry. It is vital to our community to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We know for some of our children, this is the only church they attend, the only place to hear about the love of Jesus. Pray for everyone involved.
We are always looking for new faces to join our team of teachers. If the Spirit is leading you to teach – please contact Preacher Tony!
