Children’s Church Schedule for Summer 2024

The Children’s Church ministry team will be conducting a special series of children’s lessons this summer, entitled “Lava Lava Luau.”

The series will encourage children to develop a mature and faithful understanding of negative emotions (anger, jealousy, frustration, sadness) as well as the importance of being kind in the face of adversity. Lessons will include unique crafts and activities.

We will be holding Children’s Church on these days this summer:

  • Sunday, June 2 – “Angry Volcano”
  • Sunday, June 9 – “Cool Shirt”
  • Sunday, June 30 – “Frustration Beach”
  • Sunday, July 14 – “Weeping Rains”
  • Sunday, July 28 – “Sweet, Sweet Pineapple”

Note that we are skipping June 16 for Father’s Day. Additionally, there will be no Children’s Church program for August. We will reconvene in September after the new school year has started.

We are looking forward to a fun and educational summer!
