Preschool & Children

PRESCHOOL SUNDAY SCHOOL Ministry

Birth - Kindergarten

Sundays at 9:15 a.m.

 

Preschoolers at Shades Crest participate in classes where active, hands-on learning takes place.  Our youngest children feel safe and secure in an environment where they are lovingly cared for, quietly talked to and sung to about God's love for them.  As preschoolers grow and develop, Bible thoughts and stories are reinforced through activities such as Dramatic Play, Creative Art, Blocks, Nature and Puzzles or Manipulatives. 

 

For preschoolers to face a changing and complex world, they will need a foundation of Biblical truths on which they can build their knowledge of God, Jesus and the Bible.  A strong, Biblical foundation will enable them to begin to build their view of the world from a Biblical perspective.  A building is only as strong as its foundation.  Therefore, we believe a strong foundation is essential to the ability to make a decision regarding Christ in later years      

 

ELEMENTARY SUNDAY SCHOOL Ministry

Grades 1 - 6

Sundays at 9:15 a.m.

 

The childhood years are foundational years.  Children should not be rushed but allowed to grow and develop as they are ready.  Foundations in structures cannot be rushed and require time to get firm.  Because children are in the process of becoming, our desire is to meet them where they are and challenge them to become all that God has designed them to be.  It is our hope that each child will ultimately choose to accept and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

We strive to help children embark on the journey to becoming spiritually transformed into the image of God.  As children become more curious and grow in their faith, learning opportunities are provided for our 1st through 6thgraders in weekly Bible study activities as well as month-long projects. 

 

The Vineyard (Sundays 5:30 - 6:50 pm):

  • Fours and Fives meet in Room 125
  • Bible Buddies (Grades 1-2) meet in Room 219
  • Bible Drill (Grades 3-6) meet in Room 214
