There are lots and lots of kids around Fulkerson Park, and we love it! We don’t view children as a noisy nuisance to keep quiet while we attend to more spiritual things, but as an integral part of our covenant community. Jesus loved children and teaches us to do the same, so we view children’s ministry as both a serious responsibility and a joyful privilege. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment in which children will flourish and thrive as they grow in their understanding of the gospel. There are two primary venues for children’s ministry at Fulkerson.
During the Sunday School hour each week (9:30-10:15 am), we offer educational classes for kids of all ages, 2 years old and up (and nursery is provided for the little ones). Our “Tiny Tot’s” class (2-3 year olds) enjoy playtime and crafts, as well as a Christ-centered story time using The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones. The Kindergarten class is working through He Established a Testimony, a simple children’s curriculum that is focused on the stories of the Old Testament. The 1st through 3rd graders are learning about the promises of God in a great study called Faithful to All His Promises: A Study for Children on the Promises of God, while 4th through 6th graders are growing through their study called My Purpose Will Stand: A Study for Children on the Providence of God. Junior and senior high school students meet together for discussion and study on the book of Romans.
The younger children (4-6 year olds) break off from the main worship service on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of each month for Children’s Worship. This is a structured hour that includes a gospel-centered bible story, singing, and Scripture memory, as well as interactive games and crafts.
Awana Clubs are meeting Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00. Please bring your K-6th grader for a fun evening including bible memorization, songs and games!! You can register at the door. Questions? Please email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-815-1774.
