Helping Kids to Know, to Love, to Serve, and to Share Jesus Christ.
The POCF Children’s Ministry is dedicated to serving little ones, from infancy through the 5th grade. We have exciting Sunday morning classes during our regular service time, which include children’s worship. Classes are grouped with consideration for age-appropriateness and each child’s developmental stage.
We have five areas for children: Nursery, Toddler, PreK, Early Elementary (K-2) and PreTeen (3-5).
In the nursery
From their first days in the church, children are precious to us. Our nursery is for children 6 weeks old to walking. With a loving, caring staff, babies are cared for in loving arms while hearing about the love of God through Play-N-Worship songs.
From the time they start walking until three years of age (or potty trained). Through bible stories, Play-N-Worship, we strive to teach our little one’s of God’s big love for each of them. A snack is also provided for toddlers.
Our preschoolers learn about the love of God as they are lead through the Lil’ K curriculum. Our goal is to educate our children through activities that will help them grow to be followers of Christ with age appropriate stories, games and crafts to accompany each lesson.
Early Elementary (K-2)
From Kindergarten through second grade, this class will be learning through memorizing scripture, worship and solid, age appropriate, teaching. With the KIDMO curriculum, these kids will learn and retain Bible verses like never before. MEMORY MAX utilizes hand motions, pneumonics and many other surprises.
This class has age appropriate stories, games and crafts to accompany each lesson.
Older Elementary (3-5)
Our Preteens are especially being trained for life after Children’s Ministry. They work through the KIDMO curriculum and each week students will be challenged through Teaching, Competition based questions, quizzes, and challenges, Kids Worship, Memory Max and Small Groups.
Children in this class enjoy their lesson through games, activities, crafts and more. We strive to provide solid teachings that will help children learn how truly special they are to Jesus and equip them with the knowledge of how to serve Him every day of their lives.
