Jean Putnam, Director of Children’s Ministry
The main goal of the Children’s Ministry at the Church at Addis is to teach children the love of Jesus through God’s Word while providing them with a loving environment. We use age-appropriate materials and each group is staffed with caring teachers and volunteers to make sure your child’s first step towards a relationship with Jesus is safe and positive. Children are taught truths about God and have opportunities to express themselves and their knowledge through role play, creative play, arts & crafts, puzzles, games, and more!
Nursery (Birth – 1 year old)
The nursery staff is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our infants and toddlers. Our workers demonstrate a servant’s attitude toward the children and their parents. We have a security tag check-in procedure and maintain high standards of cleanliness. The staff follows detailed nursery policies and procedures to help protect your child’s health and well-being.
Preschool (2&3 year olds) Pre-K & Kindergarten
Children are taught through curriculum that uses engaging activities to introduce young children to God. Our goal is to give children a first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for each one of them.
Birth through Kindergarten
One of the goals of our church is to provide an optimally safe and fun environment for our preschoolers. We have a security tag check-in procedure. Parents receive individual tags for each of their children. Children are only released to the parent or an adult presenting the child’s matching security tag. Children are not be released to anyone under the age of 18. All preschool volunteers and staff are required to undergo a complete background screening before working with and caring for children.
1st – 5th Grade
Our goal is all about “Shaping Godly Kids”. Following Ephesians 5:1 we want to encourage kids to be “imitators of God” and to help shape their lives to love and serve Him. All our ministry programs and classes help to develop Godly kids and build up young followers of Christ.
Extended Session is available during both worship services (8:45 am. & 11:00 am.) for Babies – Kindergarten in the Children’s Building.
Wednesday night, 6:30- 7:30, is a fun, high-energy ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus Christ and grow in a relationship with Him. There are Bible stories, Scripture memory, life application, missions, and recreation-connect to teach life lessons to kids. Children experience music and the arts designed to help them become life-long worshipers of God.
… and did we mention, we have a lot of fun doing it!
