Our Program

Kids will have a great time playing with friends every Wednesday. SPARKS begins at 3:00 p.m. Parents carpool to transport children from the schools. If there is a large group of kids coming from one school, a church bus pick-up may be arranged. Snacks are provided as the kids enjoy free time on Generations Park. At 3:40, we will break into smaller groups for our Bible Chat with experiments, Art, Music and more! Pickup is at 5:30 p.m.

Bible Chat

Mark 12:30-31  “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” The second is this, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.’

Our Bible Chats are a time to focus on our Bible lesson for the week and enjoy fun science experiments too!

Art Projects

Our SPARKS Team has fun pulling together creative projects and sometimes messy fun. Our SPARKS Art gallery is a fun way we share their projects with you.

Musical Opportunities

Our SPARKS Choir will reinforce our Bible lessons through song and prepare us to lead in our Sunday Morning Worship service in the sanctuary. Special dates will be shared so you can calendar these wonderful opportunities for your child to participate in worship. The kids get so excited about preparing the Christmas and Spring musical productions. Drumming, chimes and boomwhackers are used to enhanced our musical fun and learning!
