Bible Explorers

Bible Explorers is a weekly Christian program for children preschool through 5th grade. Each week this Christ-centered program integrates biblical teaching with spiritual and personal development to help boys and girls build healthy relationships with caring Christian adults and peers, and more importantly, with Christ. Our goal is to give children a strong foundation in biblical knowledge and have them open their hearts to God, learn His voice, and have a desire to obey Him.

On a typical night, we begin with worship through songs, we read our Key Bible Verse and that night’s theme, and then we divide into small groups for our Bible Exploration (Bible study) using the “Answer in Genesis” curriculum. We also have games and crafts.

Our preschool children, “Jr. Explorers,” meet separately. We have two preschool classes, “The Skippers” (2 & 3 yrs.), who use the “Beginners Bible” curriculum and have worship, Bible lesson, crafts, games and snacks and “The Scooters” (4 yrs.-K), who use the “Answers in Genesis” curriculum. They do worship through songs and Bible teaching at their level with the help of a lovable puppet, as well as have crafts, games and snacks.

The emphasis of our ministry is discipleship and outreach. We hope you will join us for an awesome adventure through the Bible!!!

We are excited to announce that Bible Explorers will be participating in Operation Christmas Child for our service project again this year! This is a fun program that allows our children to be involved in the world’s largest Christmas project.  Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes to show God’s love to children in and around the world who otherwise would receive nothing. In some cases, it may be the first gift they’ve ever received. Along with the shoebox, the children are given a Gospel storybook to learn about the greatest gift of all.

Parents can pick-up a preprinted shoebox (from the Bridge Kids Building on Wednesday night or Sunday mornings) and fill it with a “wow” item- a doll, or small soccer ball, school supplies, or hygiene items.  Drop it off on Wednesday night along with $9 to help cover the cost of shipping and printing Gospel materials.

We will be sending home fliers with your child next week, giving more information about how to be involved with this project and what items are and are not allowed.

We look forward to what the Lord will do through your children as they take part in this wonderful ministry!

Pre-School-Kindergarten

We have two clubs for “Jr. Explorer” preschoolers. Our first class, The Skippers, is for children 2-3 years old (must be potty trained) and the second class, The Scooters, is for children 4 years to kindergarten.

 Elementary

We begin our evening meeting all together in the “Summit” Room. After a time of worship and introducing the Key Bible Verse and theme, we divide into small groups based on the child’s grade. There, the children will have their Bible lesson (Bible Exploration). We have various activities on any given night, including crafts and games.

Our 5th grade girls will enjoy the “Miss Manners” course given by Mrs. Toni McCurdy & Mrs. Diane Baker. This class incorporates the Bible and is designed to help our girls in their transition from children to young ladies of God. It touches on relevant everyday topics in a biblical way. It also challenges them to grow in their spiritual walk with God.

Join us as we explore God’s Word!!!
