The Children's Ministry at Alamance Presbyterian Church strives to provide a safe and loving church community where children will learn who Jesus is, experience his love and grow to become followers of Jesus.
Kids Reaching Out to Christ's Kingdom is a fellowship group for 2nd-5th graders. This group meets every Sunday of each month during the school year, from 4:45-5:45 p.m., for a program that explores Christian life from a child's perspective through Bible stories, games and projects.
All children from PreK-5th grade meet together from 9-9:50 a.m. each Sunday, in a dedicated space. The curriculum is Godly Play. The Godly Play room is on the upper level of the Education building. (Take the elevator to level UF, then go through the door straight ahead that leads into the Education building. Classroom is halfway down the hall, on the right. .)
What is Godly Play?
The Godly Play Foundation says, “Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language, and to enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play.”
The Godly Play sacred space is both educational and worshipful; and a calm, relaxing space for children to “wonder through God’s word.”
Please contact Joy Thomas (email@example.com) with any questions about Godly Play. Or, visit the Godly Play website (www.godlyplay.org) for information. Watch the “Introduction to Godly Play” video on YouTube for a sneak peek at the Godly Play experience.
Sunday Morning Nursery:
During the COVID-19 pandemic, nursery for younger children is suspended, for the safety of the children and of the caregivers.
Children Engaging in Worship
Children's Church: COVID permitting: Children from age 4 - 5th grade enjoy a special time in the Community Room (under the sanctuary) after the Time with Children during worship. Children's Church is a special worship service of story and song, designed just for them! Children rejoin the congregation for the last part of the worship service.
Worship Bags: Children's worship bags are provided at the sanctuary entrances. They provide educational fun for children wishing to stay with their parents.
