In our ministry with children and families, our goal is to help families find their way back to God, connect with others, and contribute to changing the world. Look, we know how hard at can be out there in today's world. Our hope is we can help you navigate your way through this thing, and to keep you connected to God and each other! Help us help you. Share with us how we can help! If you have an idea, we are all ears and willing to make it happen! Bear Creek wants to walk with you in any way we can!
Here at Bear Creek we are dedicated to surrounding you and your children with God's love! If there's one thing we want you to know and your child to know is that you are an incredible gift! Now look, I know it may not feel like that sometimes. We know what it's like to get those children up, dressed, and out the door on a Sunday morning! It's work! That's why if you get here late, because of a child who can't seem to find their gear, there is no judgement here! We are just glad you made it. And our hope is that once you get here you can relax and enjoy someone being there for you and your children. Sit back, grab a latte, and relax in God's house of grace for a while! Rest on the truth that you are not alone!
CHILDREN ARE A HERITAGE FROM THE LORD, OFFSPRING A REWARD FROM HIM. LIKE ARROWS IN THE HANDS OF A WARRIOR ARE CHILDREN BORN IN ONE’S YOUTH. BLESSED IS THE MAN WHOSE QUIVER IS FULL OF THEM. THEY WILL NOT BE PUT TO SHAME WHEN THEY CONTEND WITH THEIR OPPONENTS IN COURT.
Each Sunday, we invite children to stay in church with their families through the first 15 minutes, until the Pastor does "Children's Moment". After that, parents can take their children to the appropriate classroom. They will sign in their children and get a temperature check for safety.
The younger children (5 and under) go to the "Playroom" to experience a shorter message with more time to wiggle and play with friends. Older children head to the multi-age classroom for a Sunday school lesson, crafts, and songs. Parents return at the end of the service to check out their children before heading to the lobby for fellowship time, snacks, and coffee.
Thank you so much for helping us as we strive to make our Kids Ministry a safe environment for your kids to learn about God!
Our advent theme is "Journey to the Manger." Join us every week as we experience Sunday school together.
