Alive in Jesus, Belonging, Celebrating, Daring
Thank you for your interest in the Children’s Ministry here at Rome Community Bible Church. We are very committed to connecting faith and families. It is our desire that our Children’s Ministry be the best possible environment for kids, their parents and volunteers to become alive in Jesus, find belonging, celebrate together, and do daring things. We are excited to have the opportunity to serve kids and their families!
Our vision is as simple as A, B, C, D; Alive in Jesus, Belonging, Celebrating, Daring. We see the importance of a fully integrated faith from an early age. We will base our ministry in the truth of Jesus Christ and the revealed word of God. From this foundation we passionately want to see whole families living in faithful response to him. We are intentional about creating spaces where kids will feel like they belong. We love to celebrate together. We also understand the importance of putting faith into action as we find ways to do daring things in faith.
We believe God cares about kids, so we do too! We take the privilege of working with kids serious. We ensure that we background checks all volunteers who work with kids. We also offer training opportunities for our volunteers to increase our capacities for serving kids and parents well. We’d love to have you join us at one or more of the opportunities listed below.
Every Sunday during the school year from 9:45-10:45 we offer age-graded classes for kids 2 years old through high school in our Activity Center building. We have great teachers who are ready to bring the Bible to life in their classrooms. We hope to see you there!
We have nursery care available during our Sunday School and main worship gathering for newborns through 3 year olds. We have a minimum of two trained volunteers ready to serve you and your child each week.
We give parents the option to have their kid(s) age 4 through 4th grade be dismissed part way through our main worship gathering to attend Children’s Church in our Activity Center. This is a large group format learning time staffed by one adult teacher and at least one assistant. We value our kids and desire for them to be engaged in learning about God from a young age.
We offer Vacation Bible School for one week each summer as a fun and engaging way for kids to know God. Kids age 4 years old through 6th grade completed are invited to attend this free program each morning the week of VBS. We have a closing program on the Friday evening of the week of VBS that is a great time for the whole family to come and celebrate the great week the kids have had. We will have more information for the summer of 2019 later in the year.
