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).

There are so many pretty trees And so many pretty leaves! Autumn is here. The weather is so cool; No more time for the pool. Autumn is here. The feathers fall from birds, So beautiful there are no words. Autumn is here. There are so many pinecones; The squirrels eat them like pones. Autumn is here. Acorns are falling all around; Not all are hard to be found. Autumn is here. Enjoy the weather and nature too. God made it all, and God made you. Autumn is here. Jesus loves you and so do I! Oreo

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.
