Children’s and Family Ministries continues to provide new and exciting outreach opportunities in an effort to touch the lives of children and families for Christ:

Go Fish for Kids
This outreach event for children age 8-12 provides the opportunity to learn creative ways of sharing Christ. Children get hands-on experiences along with Bible lessons using science, nature, art, and puppetry. After a full day of training, children can take all their tools home to share with their nonChristian friends.

Go Fish for Families
A twist to Go Fish for Kids, this new program teaches the entire family how to share the gospel in innovative and fun ways. Families will work together while learning about nature, puppetry, science, and art, while moms, dads, and children get to laugh, learn, and build better relationships. A family who ministers together stays together.

Vacation Bible School
This fun-filled program connects the church, families, and neighborhoods while reaching children who don’t normally attend church or have someone to share the gospel with them. VBS uses skits, songs, crafts, outdoor activities, and Bible stories based on a child-friendly theme.

Service Projects

  • School packs for Africa and hygiene packs for the Philippines after a tsunami through a partnership with Advancing Native Missions.
  • Bottled water with the ministries logo to help start conversation.
  • Happy Boxes that included supplies to help families at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. (This is the upcoming service project for 2015 in the Primary Division on Sabbath afternoon at Camp Meeting.)
