Matthew 19:14 (NIV)
Today's children face many societal influences that draw them away from God and his love. To counteract these, boys and girls need a variety of nurturing experiences provided by caring adults at church. Children's spiritual needs include regular Bible study that focuses on life application, worship, Christian fellowship, and evangelism. In addition to Sunday School classes, Point Township Church has the following ministries for our children:
During Sunday morning worship, children ages 4-11 can attend Children's Church. They will participate in singing, crafts, and a weekly Bible lesson. On the first Sunday of the month, children remain in the sanctuary.
Caravan is our children's mid-week service. The Caravan ministry exists to help children become more like Jesus by encouraging their growth in the four specific areas mentioned in Luke 2:52: mental (wisdom), physical (stature), spiritual (favor with God), and social (favor with men). Caravan is each Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. (Meal at 6:00 p.m.) (October-April)
Children's quizzing is a Bible study program for children in grades 1-6. The purpose to teach the Bible in a fun and exciting way, creating a desire and a love for studying the Bible. Each year children study one of five books of the Bible.
There are two levels of competition. The Red Level is for beginning quizzers and children who need or desire a simple competition. Competition questions come directly from the book. The Blue Level is for advanced quizzers and children who need or desire an advanced form of competition. Some competition questions are new and require a higher level of thought processing.
Children's quizzing classes are held during the Sunday School which begins at 9:30 am.
Each summer, children have the opportunity to attend a one-week church camp. Fundraising activities are held to help with the cost of sending children to camp.
