Children Matter

Divider text here
ThornCreek Church Children’s Ministry desires to come alongside children, families and Ministry Partners to equip them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ! "I am the way and the truth and the life…” John 14:6

We believe your children are people who can make a difference in the world TODAY, not just in the future! It’s our goal for children to be transformed by the love of God, to grow in their walk with God, surrender their lives to God, and be a light in the world for others to know God in the same way.

Memory Verse: Apostles' Creed

Main Idea: Big Questions About God

The kids have asked over 50 questions they have about God. This summer we'll be answering what we can, or wondering with them what we can't! Here are a few of their questions:

-How did God come alive if he didn't have a mother?

-How was the universe created? How did God make us?

-After Adam and Eve got kicked out of the garden, did they ever see it again?

-Did God make buildings, or make the people to make buildings?

-Does God live forever?

If your child has a question about God, please email me at katie.tyler@thorncreek.church and bring them to church each week this summer, as we walk through their questions!

Safety & Classes

Safety

Divider text here
We take special measures to take care of the children entrusted in our care. Every volunteer goes through safety training and has passed a background check. We have security measures in place in case of an emergency.
Opens: 15mins before service Closes: 15mins after service We require every child who attends church to be checked in and wear a name tag. Name tags are printed each week. Parents will receive a corresponding tag to pick up their kids and are required to turn it in and match when they pick up their children.
Please inform us of allergies or health issues your child may have to help us keep your child safe and know how to help them. (Our Nursery, Toddler, and PreK classes normally have Animal Crackers for snack. The Elementary Class will occasionally get candy, but children can only eat it with a parent/guardian’s permission. Fourth and fifth grade are served donuts.)
If your child has experienced fever, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours; or if your child has something that could possibly be contagious, we kindly ask that you don’t check your child into his/her class. Thank you so much for understanding.

Classroom Information

Nursery

Please bring a diaper bag with supplies your child may need while he/she is at church. Include diaper changing supplies, snacks/drinks, and an extra change of clothes. We have Animal Crackers for snack if you don’t bring one for your child.

Curriculum

We use a variety of Bible based curriculum to engage children. Through small groups and age appropriate activities and centers, children will experience God’s word in fun ways. Our desire is to instill lifelong habits of a Christ follower at an early age, in hopes the kids will carry them into their teenage years and adulthood. Throughout the service, we model and teach them what it looks like to Obey God, to Love Others, how to Daily Worship God, the value of Small Group Involvement, the importance of Attending Church, what it looks like to Serve Faithfully, was well as and Giving Sacrificially.

Weekly Family Devotional

Every Monday we e-mail parents a family devotional to do during the week. Parents have a big impact on their child’s spiritual growth. Use these weekly devotionals as a springboard to discuss the weekend lesson as a family!
