Children’s Ministry at Acts 2
Creating Spiritual Foundations
We believe it is our mission to equip and assist families in laying spiritual foundations with the hope that all children will come to know, love and follow Jesus. For questions about our Children’s Ministry, please contact our Children’s Director, Meagan Durham.
Latest Children’s Ministry News
Block Party Vacation Bible School: VBS is July 23-26, we’ll be Building God’s Kingdom together. Register today! There is limited space available for our Pre-K class, so if you have young children get them registered early to make sure they have a spot.
Our next VBS work day is Sunday at 2:00pm in the Gathering Space. We would love for you to come help us prepare for all the children who will be at VBS this week!
This Sunday, the children will learn about Jesus and the Little Children in Mark 10:13-16. Our memory verse this month is Phillippians 1:6: “God began a good work in you. And I am sure that he will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns.”
The mission opportunity for VBS this year is All Things Baby. Our goal is to collect enough items to fill a crib, which will all go to All Things Baby. Please bring sippy cups, bottles, baby toiletries, new or gently used toys, children’s books, baby towels and washcloths, and spare change.
Connecting Church and Home
This year, we made a wonderful investment in our Children’s Ministry with the implementation of the Orange curriculum. The name Orange is derived from the idea that the two greatest influences in a child’s life are the church and the home. The church is where children experience the light of Christ—yellow—and the home is where children experience love—red. When those two influences work together, the effect is a much greater impact—orange—on the faith development of the child. Orange is educational and fun for both the children and the volunteers in the program.
9:15 and 10:45 a.m. in the Acts 2 Sanctuary
All children will begin their day in Worship with their parents in the main Sanctuary. During the Children’s Moment, they will be invited forward for a quick message and prayer. Children in Pre-K through 5th grade will then be invited to exit the Sanctuary to go to their Sunday School classes, led by our wonderful volunteers. Children will spend about 30 minutes in class, and then will be escorted back to the Sanctuary in time to participate in Communion with their families.
4th & 5th grade
6:30 p.m. in the Acts 2 Chapel
Acts 2 and One Church children participate in fellowship, a lesson, and fun and games together at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights. Pre-K through 3rd grade meets in the Acts 2 Chapel, and 4th and 5th grade meets in Classrooms 4 and 5. Wednesday night programming runs during the school year.
Pre-K through 3rd grade students engage in a lesson, memorize a monthly Bible verse, and participate in activities and games that help them grow as followers of Jesus. They also enjoy fellowship with others.
Each night consists of a lesson, time spent reading and discussing the Bible, activities and games that support the lesson, and fellowship with friends.
