Starting the Great Commission in the Home! YOU, YOUR CHILDREN, THE WORLD.
We believe in Parents! Our goal is to partner with parents to reach their children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that they may live for the supreme glory of God (Deuteronomy 6:1-9 & Psalm 78:4).
We believe in Teachers! Our classroom method is to engage kids in an open, energetic environment with committed, passionate teachers using biblical, Christ-centered curriculum, on an age appropriate level. Our teachers are on the mission field every week as they share the Word of God with children.
Because we believe Kids can know God!
Kids preschool-5th grade are in age specific Sunday School classes and use The Gospel Project curriculum from Lifeway, which is a Christ-centered chronological Bible study through Scripture. Your kids will be on the same lesson you are each week. This helps facilitate spiritual conversations with your children on the car ride home, at lunch after church, and throughout the week. There is a nursery provided for babies during Sunday School.
In Wee C.A.R.E. kids (birth-4 years) enjoy a time of learning, play and care during the morning worship time. Wee C.A.R.E. is Crabapple Church's ministry to preschool children during the Sunday morning worship time. Since the corporate body of believers are in joyful praise of our great Lord Jesus and our K-2nd graders are also enjoying worshipping Christ in Elements Kid's Worship so these Wee ones should also be prepared for their next stage in worship. At the center of Wee C.A.R.E. is active reading and affirming prayer. Wee C.A.R.E. is based upon God's Word that, "Children are an heritage from the Lord..." Psalm 127:3.
Family Worship is important to us at CFBC. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 & Ephesians 6:4 teach that parents are intended by God to be the greatest spiritual influence in the lives of their children. That is why we believe that one of the most powerful tools in the conversion of children is to worship with their parents. We encourage dads and moms to respond to God's calling in their lives to "rejoice in the Lord" with their children.
Elements Kids Worship (K-2nd Grade) Jesus reminded us that God has called forth praise from the mouths of children and that's why Elements Kids Worship is designed to teach the importance of worship and to prepare kids to join dad and mom in Corporate Worship. Children participating in Elements Kids Worship leave just after the morning offering from Corporate Worship and go to Elements Kids Worship. Parents should take their children to the front foyer after the morning offering to obtain a security tag for their child.
Awana starts at 6:15 PM. Awana is a children’s ministry that emphasizes scripture memory in a fun environment. The Awana Pledge states it best: “To reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him.” Awana is a GREAT way for your child to grow in their understanding of the Bible and establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
