CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

Before gathered worship we have Discipleship Hour, which includes classes for children and adults. Children's Sunday School allows opportunities for kids to learn and grow through small groups and Christ-cenetered curriculum.

Worship is one of the central events of the life of God's people. Every Sunday our kids join us for the praise time at the beginning of worship. We then invite them to participate in Worship Kidstyle, a time of age-appropriate learning and worship.

Nursery care is also available during both discipleship hour and gathered worship; our nursery is right off the Fellowship Hall.

KISH YOUTH


During the school year we have weekly meetings for our youth group, running from 6th grade through graduation.  Meetings include snacks, fun together, and a time of worship focused on learning about Jesus and what it means to follow Him. There is also a full plate of youth outings, special activities, and other goings-on.


High School (9th-12th grade) meets Wednesday evenings from 7p-8:30p in the Fall, and 6p-7:30 (Starting after the new year).

Junior High (6th-8th grade) meets Wednesdays from 5:30p-7p.


During youth group, we have a time to hang out and play games. After that, we will start with some announcements about upcoming things in the youth group. From there, we have a time of worship and then a message from the Bible. Currently, our whole church is using the Gospel Project curriculum. More info can be found at: 


After the message, we have small groups broken up by gender, and sometimes age (depending on the size of the group). In these groups, the students are able to share about what is going on in their lives, ask for prayer, and to discuss in-depth the message they just heard. 



Additionally, every time that the Stillman School District has a half day on a Friday, Kish will host a get-together. Students will be invited to go to meet at the church house after school gets out until 3p on those days to hang out (lunch provided). Currently those days are scheduled as:


8/30

12/6

12/20

2/14

3/27

5/8

5/22
