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).

Have you heard the saying, “April showers bring May flowers?” If you really think about it, that phrase is telling us we may have to deal with some uncomfortable days, but then good days will come. We may have to deal with a lot of rain—and I hate walking in the rain! My feet get all muddy and my fur is wet. I do shake it all off when I get inside—which someone does not appreciate…. But in a few days, the sun is out, the flowers are blooming, and it is wonderful to go for a walk! What does the Bible tell us about bad or uncomfortable times? We will have bad days and may feel hopeless at times. How do you think Jesus’s friends and family felt when he was arrested and crucified? Jesus died. The world was dark and rainy and the sun did not shine. His friends and family were so sad and upset. They didn’t understand. Jesus didn’t do anything wrong. How could this happen? But then, 3 days later, God turned Jesus’s death from something dark and sad into sunshine and LOVE! Jesus is alive and lives forever. Jesus died so we can live forever because God loves you. Enjoy the rain, because the sunshine and flowers are coming. You are so loved! 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.
