BEFC's Children's Ministries are for ages birth through sixth grade. We offer a nursery during both services and Sunday School for infants through two years, we have Children's Sunday School for three-year-olds through sixth grade and Junior Church for three-year-olds through sixth grade during the 10:45 am service. If you have older kids, don't worry, we have them covered too, click here to read about what we offer for them!
Our preschool class is taught by Mrs. Heidenreich using the Beginner's Bible. Mrs. Heidenreich says:
Hello kids! I can’t wait to see you on Sunday mornings for Preschool Sunday School! Our class is for ages 3 years old through Kindergarten. In our class, you will be learning about God through The Beginners Bible and Veggie Tale Stories this year. While you learn about Jesus, you will be playing games, doing fun arts and crafts and more. Don’t forget to bring your Bible each week. If you don’t have one, don’t worry, we will give you your very own Bible to take home!
First Through Third Grade
Our first through third grade class is taught by Mrs. Wick, who has been teaching Sunday School at BEFC for 20 years! Mrs. Wick says:
Primary Sunday School (1st-3rd grade) is a real treat and joy for me to teach. I am constantly amazed at how God prompts the tender little hearts as they learn the truths of His Word. The children in my class ask deep questions; they think about important spiritual lessons; and they learn to serve one another as they serve the Lord.
We use the “What’s in the Bible” video curriculum to supplement the overview of the Bible as we emphasize on God’s great rescue plan. We also memorize verses, learn great hymns of the faith such as “Nothing But the Blood” and more. In the Old Testament the children learn how much we need a Savior, and in the New Testament they learn who that Savior is and how to follow him.
I am very excited to see how God will continue to touch their hearts.
To God be the glory forever and ever, amen!
Primary Sunday School
Fourth Through Sixth Grade
Our fourth through sixth grade class is taught by Mrs. Robbins using the Faithweaver Now curriculum. Mrs. Robbins says:
In the 4th-6th grade Sunday School class we follow the same 3-year scope and sequence that the kids use during Children’s Church. Our curriculum “Faithweaver Now” (through GROUP) continues to be very valuable to the kids as we cover the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Each quarter goes through 13 sequential Bible events so kids get a snapshot of the Bible timeline. Together Children’s Church and Sunday School reinforce the same weekly message in a fun new way, already knowing that the lesson content is not duplicated so that kids can dig deeper and more fully experience God’s Word in a new and exciting way. Our overall purpose and goal is to allow for kids to become more engaged and for consistency across the board.
In addition, each week the children recite their verses marching around the table in the dark because it is so much more fun that way and, after all, we are all kids! Similarly, they pray each week using the same “ACTS” (adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication) format.
In conclusion, I love teaching the 4th-6th grade class! It is one of the most significant things I could ever do with my time! Feel free to contact me with any questions or thoughts you may have. - Gail Robbins
