Kids & Youth

Utilizing interactive teaching, games, scripture memorization, and personal quiet time, our children’s programs range from special events like musicals to Sunday programs such as Bible Quizzing and Sunday School.  Nursery care is available for the very young, and those interested in music can participate in our Praise Team. Rainbow Express Preschool is also available during the week for children ages 3-5, and is staffed by teachers with college degrees in education, certified in CPR, and Act 31 and Act 51 clearances.

 

Sunday SchoolSunday School

What does Sunday School look like? Ask any one of the adults or children that attend our vibrant program, and each answer will be unique to the individual.  For some, it is a place to share the knowledge and wisdom they have attained through their lifetime. For others, it is a way to understand the world around them and the God who created them. And still others would say it a place to connect with other people and to Christ.  Our purpose for Sunday School is to reach the needs of people, minister to class members, teach the Word of God to equip them as disciples of Christ, and help find a place of service so they can grow in their faith. Come and join us!

Each Sunday evening, students get to participate in fun activities, uplifting worship, Biblical challenges, and Cre8ive Discipleship. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every teen gets to participate and learn. Sunday School, Youth Praise Band, and community service and outreach programs are designed to give each youth the best possible opportunities for growth, and the positive experiences needed as they approach adulthood.

Bible Quizzing is a ministry geared for teens in 6th-12th grade.  Each year a different book or books of the New Testament are memorized by students. Then the students test their ability to memorize and understand God’s Word through District and Regional meets. Each year thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded to students for their hard work.

Each January-March our Youth Basketball Program attracts approximately 200 community children from K-8th grades. With a family-friendly schedule and atmosphere, CMA Basketball is great fun for all area kids.  Our goal is to acquaint youngsters with the basics of basketball while helping them learn life lessons through positive encouragement. Basketball1Players experience skill-building instruction, regular season play, and exciting playoff action. The Half-Time Huddle Program allows these children to hear the gospel on a weekly basis, and the Basketball Banquet guest speaker shares his/her testimony with hundreds of community parents, grandparents and children.
