Information about our Joy Givers ministry: (mouseover text to pause)
Our goal is to lead all children through an early spiritual development in GOD and HIS word through Sunday School, Extended Session and AWANA Cubbies. This wonderful and crucial knowledge is absorbed by Biblical hands on activities, worship, creative role play and stories. Our teachers guide all children's spiritual, emontional and social growth with a positive Christian attitude, time, love and commitment.
The Sunday school hour begins @ 9:00AM and teachers arrive 30 minutes before. The extended session teachers arrive at 10:00 AM, allowing our Sunday school teachers to attend church service. Trained, experienced teachers and volunteers staff the extended sessionon on a four-week rotation basis, meaning they will only be asked to volunteer once every four weeks. The lesson provided during extended session is an extension on the lesson from the morning and this lesson is mailed to the volunteer the week before. During the week, the coordinator gathers all materials needed and has them ready for the volunteers in a brown paper sack with snack included.
Evening childcare begins @ 5:00pm with our staff arriving 15 minutes before. Our staff of evening workers are trained and experienced in the age groups they are scheduled to care for. A simple lesson or activity is provided for birth thru two years. During worship, the three-year-olds are taught from the "Wherever, Whenever" curriculum. Pre-kindergarteners and kindergarteners have the opportunity to attend "big" church.
