Children’s Ministries at AboveGroundChurch

salt-and-light-1Sunday morning, after worship, we have a full kids program Pre-K through 6th grade called “SNL Kids” (Salt-n-Light Kids).  Our goal is to provide a safe and spiritually inspiring atmosphere where the children have age appropriate, effective and memorable Bible lessons each week.

Our class sizes average 6 to 12 students each.  Each class has a designated teacher that rotates on a monthly basis.  Our Pre-K/Kindergarten class also has one or two additional assistants who help the teacher provide an organized time of learning and/or help for children who need it.

In order to encourage unity for all teachers and children, we start each week with group praise in the Community Room before classes begin.  The Sunday school classes follow the same age appropriate Bible teachings each week through a curriculum called FaithWeaver.

FaithWeaver Bible lessons were designed to encourage meaningful conversations for children and their families.  Research proves that the greatest influences on faith development take place in the home.  Basically, by having everyone explore the same Bible point in separate classes, families will be on common ground when they talk about and live out their faith.  The FaithWeaver curriculum makes it easy for families to come together and grow in faith.  We have already seen a positive reaction from the teachers, children and parents.

Sunday school is a vital way for children to grow in their knowledge of God and the Bible.
