Park Children's Ministry 

Middle School & High School


Youth group and Sunday school are starting up again on September 10! All upcoming 6th graders and returning students are invited to join us for a year of faith and fellowship. Sunday school is changing once again to help meet the spiritual needs of our youth. This fall we will be starting "Youth Group Breakfast" where the youth group will eat and fellowship together before church and a message will be shared over a early meal. Breakfast starts at 9am and runs until church and the Youth are free to join for as much time as they are able.  Youth group has taken a break for the summer to spend more time in missions and fellowship on trips outside of the church such as the Youth mission trip to Wheeling, WV and to kingdom bound. Youth group will resume on August 27th and will remain at the same time as always. 6:38... don't be late! 

 Youth Group will continue Sundays at 6:38 p.m. at the church.

Orange Theme - Kindness

Be Kind to others because God is kind to you.

Be Kind to your family and friends.

Be Kind to people who are over looked.

Be Kind to people who aren't kind to you. 


God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus personified kindness in the way He lived and interacted with the people He met.  But, as we read the Gospels, we find that Jesus didn’t just model kindness. He commanded it. By treating others the way we want to be treated, we live out the way Jesus taught us to live.


What does kindness look like? When we can identify the kindness of others, we have a better chance of replicating that in our own lives. We want kids to figure out how they can show kindness based on the ways people have been kind to them. When it comes to our family and friends, we often find ourselves taking them for granted. We want kids to learn to show kindness to those they care about most. We want kids to see people who have needs and work with the adults in their life to show kindness to people who are overlooked in their world. As kids discover what Jesus says about loving our enemies, we pray that our kids discover ways they can show God’s love and kindness to people they might not get along with all of the time.

Children's Mission Project

"Dimes For Doctors"

The Children’s Ministry continues to collect dimes for Chosen’s medical missions. Every 2 liter bottle filled with dimes, provides the funds to pay for approximately 2 surgeries. When you get change at the store, set aside the dimes. When cashing a check, ask for the coins in dimes. If you find a dime, save it for doctors. It can be easy to drop in a bill or write a check, however, when we deliberately try to collect and save dimes, we’re reminded with each coin of the lives we can help. Bring those dimes and drop them in one of the bottles at church or give them to one of the children and they’ll drop them in.

Family Worship Gathering


Families of any age are welcome to join in the church library for a child friendly worship gathering on the third Sunday each month. This worship is lay, utilizing all ages.   Families have the opportunity to help with scripture readings, offering and serving the Love Feast. Children are encouraged to experience worship at their level and adults still hear a message pertinent to their daily Christian walk.

Sunday September 17, 2017 in the church library at 10:30
