Children are a prime focus at Church of the Palms and there are multiple ministries for them. Caring and dedicated adults are always present to help nurture their faith.
All children are invited to participate in Sunday school starting at 9:15 a.m. Three age specific classes are offered:
Little Disciples: Ages 4-7 yrs teacher Candy Grose, assistant Annette Ballard
Growing Palms: Ages 8-11 yrs teacher Carolyn Cole, assistant Tonia Voegele
(Those in grade 6 will be part of the confirmation class with Pastor Pete)
Ages 12-18 yrs teachers Scott and Selina Denny
Confirmation classes are held at the 9:15 a.m. time period for those in sixth grade or older, who have not yet confirmed.
All youth in 6th grade and above, who are not yet confirmed, are invited to take part in the Confirmation program during Sunday evening.
Confirmation is not the beginning or the end of the faith journey. Confirmation is about making disciples. It is that simple and that challenging. Learn more about confirmation here.
Contact Pastor Pete if you are interested in knowing even more about confirmation at Church of the Palms.
Children are invited to attend Sunday worship. During the service there is a special time when children are invited forward for a special message.
If your child is under the age of five and you have concerns that they may not be able to sit through an hour long worship service our attended nursery is available from 9 a.m. until noon.
Vacation Bible School is always fun at Church of the Palms. Our 2014 Vacation Bible School is following the theme "Wilderness Escape: Where God Guides and Provides."
Wildneress Escape is July 14-17 from 5:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Our children and youth are just not the church of tomorrow, they are also the church of today! In this context the children and youth of Church of the Palms lead all of us in worship of God during specially designated Sunday.
Children's Celebration Choir
Our children share their gifts as a choir, called the Celebration Choir, with a musical anthem once a month during our morning worship. The Children's Celebration choir runs from October to May and rehearses in the sanctuary with Norma Brown, Music Director at Church of the Palms, after the Sunday morning worship.
Christmas Musical and Drama
Yearly the children share their gifts in a Christmas program that includes music and drama. It is a highlight of the season.
The children's Christmas program in 2013 was Sunday, December 8. The title of this year's program was "A VERY Important Christmas Pagent."
