Elementary Student Classes

  • Kindergarten: Jonah’s Journey
    This is our largest children’s classroom to enable room for this active age to play, have crafts and snacks, as well as story time.
  • 1st and 2nd Grade
    This class usually begins with some hands-on activities before students dig into God’s Word.
  • 3rd and 4th Grade   These classrooms are equipped with games like ping-pong, air hockey, or basketball hoops.  After the opening Bible video and prayer, the class moves to small groups for Bible study, discussion, and prayer.
  • 5th and 6th Grade: Shipwreck Cove     This group of intermediate students meets together once a month for a breakout service.  They also participate in special activities for just their age group including events, service projects, and day trips. Students, who have completed leadership training, may volunteer in ministry opportunities once a month in areas such as SLAM Team (Sound, Media, And Lights) for Kids Worship, small group leader, or craft assistant.
  • Kids Worship—Grades 1-6:  Discovery Island     Kids participate in their own service with an interactive sermon designed for elementary students and hands-on activities or games.

Bible Quizzing has begun!!

Children’s Bible quizzing study and practice is on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm, as well as the Friday night before a Quiz meet. Quiz Meets are on Saturdays at our church as well as other local Nazarene Churches

What is Children’s Bible Quizzing?
Children’s Quizzing is a six-year Bible study program with a competition element.  These books give the overall chronology of God’s people, the Israelites, and a “snapshot” of the Bible. The series begins with the Creation account, the first people, and the Patriarchs (Genesis).  It continues with the Israelites living in and leaving Egypt (Exodus) and follows them as they establish themselves in Canaan (Joshua, Judges, & Ruth, and 1 & 2 Samuel).  The two New Testament books center on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Matthew), and tell how the gospel of salvation came to the Gentiles (Acts).


Exodus (2020-2021):

The theme for Exodus is Follow the Leader.  Kids will learn how God provides for His people and the importance of following Him. 

We will study the book of Exodus through hands-on activities, Scripture memorization, Bible study, and faith words.  Characteristics of God are revealed in each weekly Dig Site to help children learn who God is, what He is like, and how He interacts with people.


Quizzing Schedule:

  • Studies in Exodus (2020-21)
  • Studies in Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (2021-22)
  • Studies in 1 & 2 Samuel (2022-23)
  • Studies in Matthew (2023-24)
  • Studies in Acts (2024-25)
  • Studies in Genesis (2025-26)
