Children

It's our joy to come alongside parents, encouraging and equipping them to bring up their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Our children's ministries provide a safe, fun environment where we teach God's Word; declaring His glory to the next generation. In 2 Timothy 3:15, Paul commends Timothy: "...from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus". This is our hope for each child at Countryside.

Children's Ministries

Awana

Awana is a fun, high-energy club where kids study and memorize Scripture, play team games, and enjoy special activities throughout the school year. Awana clubs celebrate the gospel of Christ, with a particular emphasis on Scripture memorization. Our Awana clubs for kids age 3 – 5th grade meet on Sunday evenings at 5:45 during the school year.

Awana begins September 12, 2021.

For information about service opportunities, contact Rick Ramos.

Children's Choirs

Our children’s choirs usually meet during the school year from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm on the Wednesday night of Home Fellowship weeks, typically twice a month. We emphasize a mix of favorite hymns and choruses, along with fun Scripture songs for Bible memorization. The choirs perform twice a year in the main worship services.

To volunteer with Shouts of Joy (Kindergarten), contact Julie Speers.

To volunteer with JoySong (Grades 1–2), contact Seth Bigelow.

To volunteer with Joyful Sounds (Grades 3–5), contact Kirsten Bigelow.

Children's Sunday School

In Children’s Sunday School, kids are taught an overview of the Bible using the Generations of Grace curriculum. Music and activities reinforce the truth of each week’s lesson. Each week, we work to learn a catechism question and review previous questions throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to discuss what their kids are learning and review catechism questions with their kids at home.

Nursery

The nursery is both a service to parents and the initial phase of our Children’s Ministry. As the children grow, we introduce them to foundational truths like “the Bible is true” and “God is good.” We also begin to train them to participate in more formal class structures, with times of singing and short biblical stories.

To get involved, contact Jennifer Stonecipher or sign up online.

Preschool Playdate

We typically meet on Friday mornings at 9:30 am for a great time of unstructured play in the Gym and Jungle Gym. All kids preschool and younger are invited.

All children must be accompanied by a parent.

If you have questions, contact Lauren Dunfee.

Special Needs

We minister to children with special needs during both morning worship services and at other special events, providing a flexible, safe, and welcoming environment to share the love of God and the joy of His gospel.

To get involved, contact Sarah Latas.
