Children are loved and welcomed

“Train up a child in the way he should go : and when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6 

Van Ministry

Children ride the van to church on Sunday morning and on Wednesday nights. Families that need to have their children picked up for any of these times please call the Church office at 620.331.5404

Sunday School

At First Church of the Nazarene, a great way to experience Jesus is through our Sunday School classes! Children interact with the stories by games, crafts, or role playing. Every Sunday morning at 9:30 am there are age appropriate classes for birth to 6th grade.

 

Nursery

Babies and Toddlers are adored here at First Church of the Nazarene. We have a fully staffed Nursery available every Sunday morning, evening, and Wednesday night for all our church activities.

 

 Children’s Church & Cherub Church

These two ministries are designed to reach your child in their age level. Singing, games, and crafts are played during this time along with a sermon or story to connect them with Jesus’ lessons and the world they live in. These two ministries begin at 10:30 am during regular service time. Cherub Church is designed for 3 – 6 year olds, while Children’s church is designed for 1st – 6th grades.

Caravan        
Pointing kids in the direction of Christ. 

Caravan is a scouting—or kids’ club—type of program for children in first through sixth grade. Classes typically meet once a week throughout the school year. Caravan uses an active, hands-on learning approach to help children grow physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. Caravan focuses on teaching everyday skills with a distinctly Christian focus.
Children become members of one of four major age based groups -Little Explorers (Pre-K to Kindergarten), Searchers (first and second graders), Explorers (third and fourth graders), or Adventurers (fifth and sixth graders).

Quizzing

Children’s Quizzing is a six-year Bible study program with a competition element, designed for school-age children. It is important to help children know what the Bible says and help them demonstrate biblical teachings in actual life situations. The goal of Quizzing is for children to know the God of the Bible.

Children’s Leadership

Children’s Leadership is a new program for children 9 – 12 years of age. The children who participate are required to fill out an application with references and sign a expectation sheet. This program helps to develop your child in becoming a leader not only for God and His church, but also a leader in life.

Summer Programs 

VBS

Each summer the Children’s ministry offers a VBS for ages pre-k through 6th grade. VBS is filled with Bible stories, songs, games, crafts, food and much, much more.

 

 Kid’s Camp at CYOKAMO

Indy Naz has been enjoying camp for the past couple of years. Camp is divided up into 2 sessions, Primary (1st – 3rd grade) and Junior (4th – 6th grade). Camp Fees differ upon each age group. However we here at Indy Naz give every opportunity for the kids to earn the money for them to go. Some of the activities the kids enjoy is swimming, late night devotions and singing around the camp fire, and all kinds of activities that make camp so memorable for your kids. Camp can be a life changing experience, please encourage your child to attend!
