Joy Kids

Dear Friends,

If you are a parent of a child in 5th grade or younger, we would love for you to be a part of our children’s ministry. Our children’s ministry is called JOY kids, meaning Jesus, Others, Yourself, because of what Jesus taught us in the book of Matthew when he said, “Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul and mind. This is the first and most important commandment. The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, Love others as much as you love yourself.” Matthew 22: 37-39. From the scripture, we know it is important to learn the stories of the Bible and what they can teach us AND to do good for people in our church and community (And to also have an insane amount of fun together).

Kathy Yurchak and I are so excited to let you know the opportunities we have for the children and families of our church to gather this fall! **Please note, that you and your child’s safety is very important to us during these uncertain times. In planning, we have tried to choose mostly outdoor activities. When inside, we ask that everyone (students, volunteers, staff, and visitors) wear masks over their nose and mouth. This will not last forever and we are all in this together!

  • Nursery care is available every Sunday morning (during both worship services and the Sunday school hour) for newborns, toddlers, and preschool aged children.
  • Kindergarten through 5th grade students are invited to meet in the small fellowship hall for Sunday school beginning at 10am with Ms. Scarlette.

Lots of Love,

Ms. Scarlette and Ms. Kathy

We thank you for all of your prayers and support. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email, scarlette pless
