B.A.S.I.C.

(Brothers and Sisters in Christ) Training

BASIC 2013-14 Music Primary3

Who is this for?

B.A.S.I.C is for preschoolers to 8th Graders.

What is it?

In BASIC we are preparing children for Confirmation. Confirmation is a time when children confirm their faith in front of the congregation and are able to take Communion for the first time and become members of the congregation. Preschool to 2nd grade spend their time learning biblical accounts. 3rd through 6th graders learn the basic Christian foundations like the books of the Bible, the Church calendar, prayer and more! Then in the 7th and 8th grade children enter the Confirmation class and learn about the 6 chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism: The 10 Commandments, The Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, Baptism, Confession and Communion.  Also during BASIC we have practice for our children’s choir and at select dates we have meal nights and store. On meal nights we serve pizza for the whole family before the children start the evening. During store nights we have toys, books, crafts and other items that children can chose from to buy. They buy these items with “BASIC Bucks” which is currency the children earn from attendance, completing homework and other activities.

Where is it held?

Preschool to 2rd graders start their evening in the Education Building.  3rd to 8th graders start their evening in the Church Building.

When can I go?

Wednesday evening from 6:15-7:45pm in the months of September through April.

Children’s Care Ministry

DSCN6395

Who is this for?

Newborn to 2nd grade

What is it?

Children’s Care consists of 3 parts which strive to provide parents and children with the best worship experience possible:
1st is our Nursery service which provides the opportunity for parents of newborns to 3 years old to drop their children off with a volunteer. Parents are welcome to pick their child up whenever they wish and will be given a pager by the nursery volunteer in case the parent needs to notified to come back to the nursery.
2nd is Children’s Church, it is meant for preschoolers to 2nd graders to go downstairs during the sermon to hear the message at their level. They children have an object lesson to help them better grasp the lesson along with other activities.
3rd is our Buddy Bags which are provided to all newborns to 2nd graders who want them. They are meant to help keep the child’s attention during the service. This way parents do not have to bring toys or coloring books from home, instead the church provides them.

Where is it held?

All these services can be found in the Church Building.
The Nursery can be found in our basement on the west end by the stairs.
Children’s Church takes place in the basement as well but in the main room.
The Buddy Bags can be found in the reception area (also called the Narthex) at the back of the sanctuary.

When can I go?

The Nursery is staffed between 8:30 and noon every Sunday. If for some reason a volunteer is not in the room, it might be because of a shift change but don’t worry someone will be in shortly!
Children’s Church happens during the sermon in the middle of the church services, both 8:30am & 11am, on Sunday morning.
The Buddy Bags are available at all three services at any point in time, just ask an usher if you need help locating them.
