SONGS: Sing unto the Lord a new song. Children love to sing. We have over 100 songs on power point that we change from month to month.
PUPPETS: We have a trained group of puppeteers who work each week to provide new songs. We just recently purchased some new puppets which we’ll be able to use to expand the ministry to the younger classes.
MEMORY VERSES: “Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee.” We challenge the children every week to learn their memory verse. This year we are learning Psalms 36:1-12.
MISSIONARY OF THE WEEK: The Lord hears and answers prayers. We choose a different missionary each week to pray for. We try to teach the children that there are two ways you can support missionaries–financially and prayerfully.
CHRISTIAN HERO OF THE WEEK: So many times we make the wrong choices in choosing our heroes. In children’s church each week, we learn about different men and women in times past that gave their life over to serve the Lord.
PREACHING: We strive for vibrant preaching to keep the children’s attention. We also know that all scripture is inspired, and we use the Bible to teach doctrine, to show them sin and the effects of it. We also teach how they can get forgiveness for sin and live the Christian life to its fullness.
BIBLE GAMES: After the preaching each week, we have a competition between the boys and the girls. Questions are given to challenge each child to listen during the lessons. Games vary each week from human tic-tac-toe, skittle game, classic concentration, bonk, and other exciting games.
SKITS: Skits are great way to get a Bible principle across to a child. We have various characters that help get the message across.
SPRING AND FALL CAMPAIGNS: Each spring and fall we try to have a campaign to give children’s church a little boost. This spring we our going to “Soar for the Savior” and this fall is “Paradise at Peoples.”
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: Want a break from the hot summer nights. Every summer at People’s Baptist Church we have Vacation Bible School. We have a trained staff that helps each child experience crafts, games, snacks, and of course great Bible lessons.
