SPLASH is our ministry to Preschool and Elementary age
children and is "under construction." We try to make this environment as creative
and exciting as possible, with worship music, Bible stories, crafts, and
special "characters" who make occasional appearances to teach the
kids spiritual lessons through their areas of expertise.
We believe that reaching kids requires more than just good
curriculum. It requires relationships. Children need relationships with other
children, but also relationships with adults that they can talk to, pray with,
confide in, and learn from.
Most of all, however, we hold to the idea that we are
partnering with parents to teach their children to walk in godly ways. We get the chance to impact their lives once
a week, for about 40 minutes. But our
ministry can't compare -- in terms of either time or influence -- to the
ministry that you, the parents, can have with your kids. As parents, you are positioned to be the best
teachers your children ever have, and make a greater impact on their lives than anyone else! So, we see ourselves as partners: we get the
conversation started on Sunday mornings, so that you can have a starting-point
to teach your kids and talk with them throughout the week.
The SPLASH area is located in the downstairs of our
building. If you journey down the
stairs, just follow our multicolored hallways until they turn light blue, and
you'll be there! Kids get to stay in our
regular church service through most of the music worship time. Watch for an announcement on the screen
during the service when it’s time for the kids to venture down with their
leaders to SPLASH.
