Wednesday Night Children’s Program
Every Wednesday night during our prayer service we have a combined class for children in grades 1-6. The teacher for this year is Greg Gray, and during the school year the kids will be learning about the Psalms and building musical instruments. This combined class meets downstairs in Room 30. (The class for 2-5 year olds meets in Room 7).
(Early Memorization Builds a Regular Commitment)
EMBARC is a Bible memorization program for children in grades 2-12, which is intended to encourage lifetime memorization and internalization of God’s Word for godly living. It is a twelve week course, running from January to April, in which participants learn a new verse each week, continually building on their knowledge of the Scriptures. By the end of the program, the students will have learned the books of the Bible, the Beatitudes, verses on salvation, prayer, the Word of God, and many others. By successfully completing different levels of EMBARC, children can earn money for Victory Valley Summer Camp, Sno-Glo (a winter youth retreat), our church’s Day Camp for kids, Victory Valley’s Winter Blast, or Core Challenge (also at Victory Valley).
We have a Children’s Choir for children in grades 1-6. (Every other year the children perform a musical, which typically takes place around Christmas. On opposite years the children rehearse on Sunday evenings and sing on the fourth Sunday of the month during the evening service.)
Day Camp is a one week summer children’s program for those entering second grade to those entering seventh grade. During the week the children learn about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and how to integrate their faith with all of life. Day Camp runs Monday through Friday, during a week in July, beginning at 9 am and ending at 3 pm each day. It is held at the United Christian Camp Grove, north of Cleona, PA. Some of the daily activities include swimming, crafts, recreation, drama, nature, and newspaper.
