VBS 2019 Slide 3.jpg

Vacation Bible School is coming soon!

Join us June 4-7 for "SUBmission" as we dive to the bottom of the ocean in a submarine to learn more about humility. VBS is a discipleship program that involves people of all ages in our church family.

Around 240 volunteers are needed and it is amazing to see teenagers, adults, and senior adults working together to serve our children and teach them about being a disciple of Jesus. VBS is for four-year-olds* through 5th grade, based on their upcoming grade in school this fall. Programming for babies and toddlers is available for children who have a parent serving at VBS. *Preschool VBS is open to children born between 8/1/14 - 7/31/15.

Registration for kids and volunteers is now open at www.chjoplin.org/register or you can visit the Sign Up Counter in the Atrium. The sooner everyone signs up, the better, so we encourage you to register now. Those who want to donate money for supplies can also give online or visit the Sign Up Counter.

When you pre-register, T-shirts can be purchased for $6; only shirts paid for during pre-registration are guaranteed to be available. A few shirts will be available to purchase at VBS, but are not guaranteed, so be sure to buy your shirts soon! (Purchasing shirts is not required for attendance.)

The entire church family is invited to attend our Friday Night Event on June 7 which is a FUN night of high energy worship and a huge party afterward with inflatables and food trucks. We'd love to see everyone there!

Pre-K/Kindergarten

Our Early Childhood Ministry at College Heights includes Baby City (0-1), Toddler Town (2-3), and Preschool 4's-Kindergarten. We find it a great joy to help young children grow in their knowledge of and love for Jesus! We offer biblically sound lessons, age-appropriate activities, and a safe, engaging environment for children on Sundays at 9:15 AM and 11:00 AM. Wednesday programming is offered at 6:30 PM during the school year.

Our babies are taught from the Bible each week using the “Palma Smiley” curriculum. We teach even our littlest ones to value God’s Word! For our toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarten and elementary students, we use “The Gospel Project for Kids” curriculum. Additionally, we offer family resources and encourage families to deepen their faith together!

ELEMENTARY

(GRADES 1-5)

We want kids to LOVE coming to church, CONNECT with friends and leaders, LEARN the Gospel of Jesus through a comprehensive study of God’s Word, and DISCOVER how to be a disciple of Jesus every day! We utilize curriculum and family resources through “The Gospel Project for Kids”, and we encourage families to deepen their faith together!


SUNDAY

We want our kids in grades 1–5 to develop a solid Christian foundation. We play fun games, worship through singing together, and learn about our AWESOME God by studying the Bible in both large and small group settings. Each week, we want kids to walk away with practical ways to live out what they have studied.

 

FAMILY SUNDAY

On the fourth Sunday of every month we have Family Sunday. During the 9:15 AM service, children in grades 1–5 attend Sunday morning class as usual. After the service, parents pick up their children in grades 1–5 to be together at 11:00 AM in the Worship Center. 


WEDNESDAY (during the school year; 6:30-8:00 PM)

Grades 1-5 in the Gym

On Wednesday nights, we play super fun games and learn how to tell and retell the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the Discovery Bible Study method (DBS). In DBS, children hear scripture read directly to them (using creative methods) and the kids then practice retelling the story in their small group. Our kids are learning a lot about sharing Jesus with others and are learning skills that will help them reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!


STAFF

Our Children's Team is here to serve both families and volunteers!  If you have questions about our ministry or are looking for opportunities to serve, please contact any of our staff members.
