Children - Overview
Our goals are to help kids love God, love His Word, love His church and love His world. We sum it up best by saying we’re about “partnering with parents to raise children who love and serve the Lord.” That vision statement has special significance for us in fruit-growing Franklin County, PA. Our nursery and preschool programs are Biblical, active and fun-filled. Beepers and security tags assure parents their children are safe with us. Our programming for children in kindergarten through grade 5 is based on the creative large group teaching session/small group intentional shepherding model. Sunday morning becomes the best part of a kid’s week because it’s fun and interesting to go to church. At church they find special adults who know them personally and love and guide them in what it means to follow Jesus.
If you have more questions or would like to set up a time to tour the facilities, please call or email Director of Children’s Ministries Judy Chatterton at 717.762.7147 x231.
