KIDS CROSSING (For children age 0 – grade 5)
Being a parent is both wonderful and overwhelming at times. We believe that parents are responsible before the Lord for the training up of their children, but, praise God, He has also given us the church. You are not alone!
Kids Crossing Ebenezer BFC Children’s Ministry exists to assist you as parents to lay a strong Biblical foundation, and love of Jesus Christ in the lives of your children. We are committed to making disciples by drawing children into the presence of God through worship, Bible memorization, Bible lessons, and practical application. It’s our desire to partner with parents as we teach with relevant curriculum, which emphasizes God’s plan of redemption!
Questions regarding any Kids Crossing Program can be directed to our Children’s Ministry Director, Jennifer Schanely (jennifer null@null aplaceforyou NULL.org) (610-868-5501).
SUNDAY MORNINGS (http://aplaceforyou NULL.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Gospel-Project NULL.png)
Cross Time Sunday School (age 4 – grade 5) is a time of age-based discipleship. We use the Gospel Project (https://gospelproject NULL.com/) material published by LifeWay Christian Resources which provides comprehensive, chronological Bible lessons and allows all age groups to learn the same material in an age-appropriate setting. Parent resources, visual aids, and apps are also provided to enable parents to further disciple their children and learn God’s Word together as a family. Class is held 10:05 – 11:00 am.
Children’s Church (age 4 – Kindergarten, based on age as of September 1) provides a time of fellowship, Bible lessons, and fun activities for children. We use the Gospel Project worship material published by LifeWay Christian Resources, which corresponds with and compliments our children’s Sunday School lessons. Children are dismissed from the morning worship service (11:15 service) before the sermon.
Nursery Care (0-24 months, based on age as of September 1)
Currently available during the Sunday School hour (10:05-11), and the Second Service 11:15
Early Childhood Program (2 & 3 year-olds, based on age as of September 1)
Available during the 8:30 Worship Service, 10:05 Sunday School, and 11:15 Worship Service
**Beginning December 2020, we do not have a volunteer team to teach the early childhood kids during the 11:15 service time during “even numbered months”.
EMPOWERING COURAGEOUS KIDS
Wednesdays, Oct 7 – Dec 9, 2020
6:30 – 8:00 pm
Empowering Courageous Kids contains 8 weeks of specially designed lessons built with social distancing precautions in mind. This timely series will help kids overcome the fear and anxiety associated with today’s world. Created specifically with social distancing and other COVID-19 safety precautions incorporated, kids can safely connect with each other and experience how people in the Bible conquered doubt, worry, and uncertainty with God’s power. And kids will discover how they, too, can use God’s power to find courage no matter what they’re facing. Our last week in December will be a Christmas celebration!

CAMPS & RETREATS
Winter Blast is a weekend retreat in February at Victory Valley Camp (https://www NULL.victoryvalleycamp NULL.org/). Kids can grow spiritually from age-appropriate Bible lessons and enjoy plenty of fun activities while strengthening relationships with friends and leaders.
Summer Camp is a week-long retreat in July/August that is held at Victory Valley (https://www NULL.victoryvalleycamp NULL.org/). Ebenezer usually runs a van to one of the 5-day Day Camps, but kids can also sign up for the 6-day overnight camp on their own. Activities include archery, swimming, ropes & challenge courses, Capture the Flag, hiking, crafts, and Bible lessons. Cost includes Snak Shak, Cabin Photo, and CampLive (online photo viewing and email-my-camper service).
Children are supervised by Victory Valley’s trained counselors and staff, as well as chaperones from Ebenezer BFC. Check the kids crossing calendar (http://aplaceforyou NULL.org/?page_id=1464) for this year’s dates & registration information.
