Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

Our children’s ministry under the leadership of Valerie Blackburn is always doing something wonderful.  Children through Bible stories, crafts, and games are growing in their faith.  We have seasonal activities such as an Easter Egg Hunt, a Christmas Party for Jesus and Vacation Bible School, among others.

If you would like to join the fun, please contact Valerie Blackburn at blackburn7893@comcast.net 

Children’s Ministries – Get involved!
If you want to help play a part in building the spiritual lives of our children, we have all sorts of opportunites, from Sunday School to Children’s Church (during the 11a service)–and even helping in the nursery. Every moment you give to a child helps build his or her future spiritual foundation. Let Valerie or the church office know if you are interested in helping (770-474-2570).

Well school is in session, but most of you are attending school via Zoom and completing your assignments from home. Is it hard to do your work at home when toys and outside activities are so close? I bet you miss your friends from school! Do you get to see them when you log on to your class in the morning? If you have a pet, do they like to attend school with you? Instead of thinking of all the things we can’t do like seeing our friends or going to our school, why don’t we focus on the things we can do now that we could not do before. Can you learn to cook? You can help whoever cooks your meal and maybe learn to cook a meal on your own. There is probably a lot you can do. Can you make your own lunch? Can you spread peanut butter on a slice of bread? I know when Ms. Valerie visits her grandchildren, they expect her famous banana guys! Try out this easy recipe: Cut a banana in half and stand it up on the flat end. Put peanut butter on top and put a raspberry for a hat, then put peanut butter on the front of it and put two blueberries for eyes. Sometimes strawberries or blackberries can be used. They love it! You can probably come up with some creative ways to make lunch. It is a lot of fun! The point is, no matter how different or hard things can be for us, we can find some good. God wants you to be happy, so instead of thinking about what we don’t have, or what we can’t do, think of the things you can do now and have fun doing it! Jesus loves you and so do I!

This illustrated book follows two families as they grapple with a police shooting of a black man in their community. Written by psychologists who have experience in community advocacy and children’s behavioral health, this book provides the necessary framework for talking to children about racial injustice. If you’re not sure how to start the conversation, the book also includes guidelines for discussing race and racism with children, child-friendly definitions, and sample dialogues at the end.
