Catching the Fire
About Catching the Fire
Catching the Fire is a ministry dedicated to teaching and positively influencing the future of the church - our kids! We want to teach the next generation the truths of the Bible in a fun and understandable way. By incorporating games, Bible stories, discussion questions, and object lessons, we make learning about God simple while still teaching the truths found in the Bible.
Catching the Fire classes are for students from age 0 - 5th grade and are split as shown below:
Kindling the Fire: Nursery (age 0 - 4 years)
Sparks: age 3 - Kindergarten (merged with Kindling the Fire and Ignite at the moment)
Ignite: age 5 - 5th grade
All Catching the Fire classes EXCEPT for Kindling the Fire and Sparks join the adults for praise and worship in the sanctuary, are dismissed to their classes after worship, and return to the sanctuary in time to participate in the prayer and response portion of service. We believe that our kids can and should learn these things by watching and observing others, as well as participating.
While teaching in the church is valuable and important, we also believe that we are partners with the child's biggest spiritual influence -- their parents. We want to do our best to help equip parents to solidify the things that are taught to their kids at church. We can do this by providing the weekly memory verse, sticky statement, and main idea from each service to be studied at home.
