Children's Ministry

We are continuing to see God work in our weekly Kidz Club program!  It meets every Friday from 6:30pm - 8pm.  Please share with those you know!

We need your help!
As motivation for kids to memorize Bible verses, they earn 'Kidz Cash' that can be spent in our 'Store.'  We are always in need of donated items (new or used) that we can use in the store!  Items for kids ages K-6th grade (toys, art supplies, sports items, games, school supplies etc.). Items can be placed in the marked bin at the back of the sanctuary or dropped off during office hours.

Kidz Club Testimony

"It has been inspiring, heartwarming and inspirational to watch the children grow in Christian spirit and knowledge of the Lord! Reciting the truths of God's word and Bible verses has been amazing and encouraging. Singing songs, watching movies about Christian heroes from history has strengthened Faith for everyone attending! It has been wonderful to watch them grow in knowledge and faith. Our precious children are the future and they will take up the torch for the Lord equipped with the truths of the Bible.It has been a wonderful experience for me to see the kids grow!  As an adult working with the kids it has warmed my heart and encouraged me to keep up our work of faith and love in the Lord to keep up the good fight in His Holy name! There's a song I think about daily...I will sing of the goodness of God....I see and feel this in my heart as I work with the children that come to Kidz Club. What a privilege and happiness it brings me to serve by helping with Kidz Club. Many lessons the children have learned has opened my eyes to the lies Satan has cleverly weasled into today's music, books and movies to blind our eyes and hearts to the truths the Lord has given us. To God be the Glory!"
Love in Christ, Lydia DeGroat

Mark 10:14 "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God."
Ellie and Leah Ingraham created Bible verses on wood blocks to put along the Trail.  They wanted trail goers to find them and be encouraged!

Not Just for Gift Giving

Sussex Project

Did you know that when you use our ShopRite gift cards for your weekly shopping, the church receives 5%?  This really starts to add up when many people are contributing!  
Cards do not cost more than their value, are worth the full face value, and are available in varying increments.  The money earned goes toward the general fund to help with church expenses.  Pick up your cards in the office after church, or stop by the office during office hours.
