We love kids at POG and feel a great responsibility to teach them the word of God and to help them learn about having a relationship with God. We do this through music, Bible lessons, and activities. We’re praying that God will raise up our kids for his glory and their good.
We have a few options for children on Sunday mornings, based on age. The curriculum we use is from the Assemblies of God-My Healthy Church program. The children's ministry involves the nursery, Humble Bees, and Kids Church. The kids are with their families for worship and then are dismissed to their classes. The nursery is Infant up to 2 years of age. The Humble Bees is for 2-5 years old. The Kids Church is for children 5-12 years of age. We hope to have a lot of fun while learning all about our awesome God!
Mid-week (Tuesday evening):
We've recently started a mid-week event for children as part of the Assemblies of God-Royal Rangers program. Our goal is to love them, pray for them, and teach them God’s truth in fun and creative ways. The group meets Tuesday nights at 5:30 and starts with a meal followed by a game, a Bible story, and crafts.
We know kids are VERY precious to God (and us) so we try to put as much energy, prayer and prep into their spiritual growth as anything else we do around POG.
Xtreme Faith is our program for middle and high school students. We meet at 7:30 on Wednesdays, with additional special activities throughout the year.
A typical night includes something to burn off a lot of energy and have fun followed by refreshments and a very interactive discussion about God, his ways, his love for us, his plans, his mysteries and how ALL of that relates to the challenges of student life.
