In PreRunners we provide nursery care for children up to 2 years of age and we provide classes for your children who are 2 years of age through Pre-Kindergarten, during all weekend services and on Wednesday evenings. Classes are held during each event, so when you are in the sanctuary, your children are provided an experience designed just for them.

The message, shared by those called to work with children, is geared to their age and attention level.

Three basic truths foundational in everything we teach the children: God Made Me, God Loves Me, Jesus wants To Be My Forever Friend.

Powerhouse (Kindergarten through 8th Grade) is a unique approach to Sunday school for children. This ministry enables us to make each weekend experience creative and relevant with great Bible content for your kids.

Powerhouse is built around three basic truths which every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52, “…and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man.” Each basic truth is amplified by a weekly concept and a monthly core virtue and memory verse.

Three basic truths taught in Powerhouse: I can trust God no matter what, I need to make the wise choice, I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

This Week’s Lesson:

Introduction: This week’s lesson focuses on how to pray for children in Grades K-4 and in Grades 5 – 8 they to will learn the importance of taking time to be silent in prayer with God.  Be sure to watch the Worship Video & Bible Story related to your child’s grade level and DISCUSS some or all of the questions below the age appropriate section.

Once you have discussed the questions, download the Do and Grow documents or follow the instructions to help your child apply what that have learned.  Praying you have a great time of worship and learning together as a family this week. Please let us know if your child prays and gives their heart to Christ so we can send them a New Believer’s Kit just for them!

Grades K-4:

Worship/Bible Story:

Discuss:

  1. Would you rather make a video call or a phone call?
  2. What do you think pray means?
  3. Someways to pray are speaking out loud to God, speaking quietly to Him in your head, singing your prayer, silently listening to God, and even writing your prayers. Which types of prayers do you want to try out?
Have you made the choice to follow Jesus? If YES, celebrate and thank God!  If NO remember in the video Kat shared that to follow Jesus we need need to Admit that you have done/do wrong and ask God to forgive you, Believe that God sent Jesus to take the punishment for your sins, and Choose to spend your whole life depending on God’s power to not sin and live for Him. If you want to make this choice to follow Jesus, pray the prayer above and let us know so we can send you a Bible and a New Believer’s Kit to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. Please email johnkulikowski@verizon.net to receive your child’s New Believer Kit.
 
Do and Grow:

Print the Prayer Challenge Card and complete with your child. Print the Psalm 55:17 Verse and as your child colors the verse help them to memorize the verse this week.

Grades 5-8:

Worship/Bible Story:

Discuss:

  1. What distractions do you need to turn off this week?
  2. How did the silence in today’s video make you feel? (Allow your child to be honest. It might have felt boring, uncomfortable, or even made them feel more restless.)
  3. How do you think silent prayer time could either help calm your mind or help keep your mind calm?
  4. Do you think there should be more room in your life for silence? Why or why not? What does silence have to do with sensing God’s presence or feeling like He’s speaking to your heart?
  5. Read Luke 5:16 NLT. Why do you think Jesus went to pray by Himself often? How do you think we can follow Jesus’ example—even when we’re in the middle of a busy season of life?
  6. Where do you think you could go when you want to have some quiet time with God? (Ideas: Outside, in your room, in a closet, under your blankets, etc).
  7. It can take practice to get used to silent time with God—and to feel its effects begin to add calmness and rest to your body, mind, and spirit. How long do you think you could practice silent prayer for each day this week?

Do and Grow:

Pray together. Pray that your child would continue to realize the importance of being silent with God in prayer! Pray they’d be able to use the gifts and talents God’s given them to help serve the Church, in their church. Have your teen download the YouVersion Bible APP on their smart-device and complete the How to Survive Middle School and Beyond Bible Plan.
