Community Day Camp (entering 1st to entering 6th)

Kids entering 1st-6th grade

Mon-Fri, July 23-27 from 9am-3pm
REGISTER HERE
We’re improving our VBS programming by splitting up between a week of kinder-camp and a week of day camp for 1st-6th graders.  For the second week of summer camp, we’re bringing in professionals from Twinlow Camp in Idaho to help give our kids an amazing camp experience without having to go to camp.  We’ll eat lunch together and have lots of fun activities, excursions, games, projects, and crafts to do together during the week in a way that focuses on really building relationships and making connections with the kids who are a part of our program.

Contact Brendan at brendan@faithunited.org for more info on our summer camps for 2018.

What to Expect on Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings, engaging and fun Sunday school classes are offered at our 10:30 worship for ages preschool through 5th grade.  Nursery care for infants and toddlers is available at both our 9:00 and 10:30am worship services. We love having our children in worship so, if your family attends our 9:00am service, your children will find a children’s bulletin and a snack to enjoy during the service.  For families with very young children, we also have a soundproof quiet room at the back of the sanctuary for parents to still participate in worship without having to remove themselves due to an upset or fussy child.

During first Sunday of each month, we suspend Sunday school so that the whole family can worship together.  Research shows that a child’s ability to develop a life-changing faith and relationship with God increases dramatically when they get to see faith modeled and lived out by older adults and especially their parents.

The third Sunday of the month, (also known as our Missions Sunday) after the children’s moment, the children go out of the sanctuary and up the stairs to the Talbert building for a special service project. Sometimes we pack lunches for the poor and homeless and sometimes we create “go-bags” full of snacks and basic necessities for the homeless we see around town.  Whatever we do that particular month, we find ways to creatively help children experience what it’s like to love God by loving others.Deep Blue

On every other Sunday, we have “traditional Sunday school” in classrooms broken up by school grade.  We are using Deep Blue kids curriculum on Sunday mornings in our classes.  This is a new exciting curriculum that includes adventures, exciting stories, science experiments, art, animated video storytelling and active games.  Learning how to read and use the bible is a center point of our teaching and all our efforts in Sunday school.

 

A Few Words About Our Ministry Ethos

We are strong believers of helping to support and empower parents.  This includes providing practical resources and growing opportunities on subjects like building better marriages, becoming the spiritual leaders of one’s children, and learning what it means and looks like to experience a holistically redeemed life in God’s Kingdom here on earth.  Keep an eye on our calendar for opportunities like these to learn and grow as individuals and as a family!

BUILDING BETTER MOMS is here! Registration for Faith Church’s New Mom’s Group is Open:  Please sign up for the 2017-2018 year.
