Children's Church

Overview

Each Sunday morning, children attend worship services in the Sanctuary where they sing, pray, give, and read the Bible in an intergenerational setting. We believe this time of joint worship is vital for the spiritual growth of children—watching teens and adults model for them the worship of God. Children can also serve during the worship service by being greeters or presenting music.

Children are dismissed to Children’s Church right before the adult sermon so they can also experience their own age-appropriate worship and “sermon.” Children’s Church includes Bible stories, games, drama, puppets, and memory verses. Parents pick-up their children after the adult service has concluded.

* Parental Guidelines for Children’s Communion

At Fleetwood Bible Church, we strive to uphold the authority of parents in the lives of their children, so parents decide when their children possess an appropriate understanding of the holiness and importance of Holy Communion.

children's-church-logoHoly Communion is a covenant meal for believers—individuals who have committed their lives to Jesus Christ. True Christian believers can be old or young in age. If your child has personally repented of his/her sins, proclaimed that 

Jesus is the Lord and Master of his/her life, and understands that the bread and the cup represent Christ’s sacrifice in his/her place, you may feel free to allow them to partake in Holy Communion.
