Love the little ones! Our Children's ministry vision is to make young disciples who love as Jesus loves. We want to support parents in their ministry of raising up children to know God through the truth of His Word. We have classes for children preschool through 5th Grade. We also have a caring nursery for newborn through two years of age.
Our current curriculum is theme-based from "The Re-Think Group." It is amazing how God seems to keep intertwining what we are teaching the kids on Sunday and what Pastor James is sharing during his message. God is so good ... ALL THE TIME!
If you have a heart for children, there are plenty of opportunities to serve. We would be delighted to train you to serve as a Sunday School teacher once each month, a substitute teacher occasionally, or as a leader who serves during the summer. Come and watch our little ones grow in their love and knowledge of the Lord. You will see how rewarding this ministry can be.

Vacation Bible School
Share the truth with children! One of JP Bible Church's exciting community outreaches is our annual VBS. Each July, we spend a week reaching more than 180 children and their families with the love of Jesus Christ. We fill the buildings and grounds of our church, and even the Community Center across the street, with music, games, snacks, missionary stories, Bible lessons, and lots of laulghter. It is a great party! The enthusiasm of our volunteers is incredible. These volunteers do everything from preparing and serving food, to planning and organizing crafts, to leading songs, and making decorations. Whether behind the scenes or working directly with the kids, all of our volunteers reflect the love of Jesus to the children.
One of the themes we present in our program involves sharing how the children can become missionaries, whether short-term or long-term, in a faraway country or in their own neighborhood. The children's offerings provide support for our featured missionaries.
JP Bible's VBS is an opportunity to reach the unchurched in our community. Children who feel the love of Jesus through us go home and share that love with their families. Please prayerfully consider how God might use you in this exciting outreach.
Attention Everyone! Our theme for this year is "Meeting Jesus!" Registration will begin in June. Stay tuned!
