Our mission is to build young lives on the foundation of God’s Word and His Spirit so they become a blessing to their family, neighbors and nations of the world. It is our sincere desire that children know how much our Heavenly Father loves them… and that we, at VCC, love them too! We hope children will come to know His love through Bible lessons and worship and by the example of caring teachers. The following values direct our ministry to children:
Faith: To lead children into a relationship with Jesus through faith and to equip them to express their faith in Christ with others.
Family: To encourage children to experience the love and care that comes from being in the family of God.
Fun: To promote a love for church so children enjoy attending and bringing their friends. To create an atmosphere for children that is safe and age-appropriate.
Here is a brief description of the children’s ministry experience you can expect during our services:
Mothers and their newborns may have privacy and listen to the service in our Nursing Mother’s Room at the back of the sanctuary.
Babies and Toddlers
Relax and enjoy the adult service, knowing that your baby is receiving quality, loving care from our trained volunteer staff. Follow the signs to the appropriate rooms and register your child prior to the service. You can be comfortable knowing that if your child does need you during the service, you will be notified by pager.
3 through 5 Years
Each week, your child will enjoy singing, playing with toys, making new friends, learning Bible stories and creating a simple craft to take home. All our teachers love children and are trained to provide the best possible learning experience for your child. Follow the signs to the appropriate rooms and register your child prior to the service.
1st through 5th Grade
We have an exciting weekly program that includes games, worship songs, Bible stories, and a variety of teaching methods ranging from puppetry, to dance, to drama presentations. In addition, children will make new friends and learn about character development based on the Bible. At the beginning of each service, children join parents in the sanctuary until they are dismissed to our Kids Church classrooms.
