Elementary K-4th

Large Group/ Small Group
For our K-4th grade children, our Children’s Ministry is set up a large group/small group format. Our program is called the “O-Zone”.

During large group time, kids will be invited to join in a high energy worship experience, and will learn a weekly Bible Lesson that follows along with the virtue of the month. What’s a virtue?

Virtue: something you can put in your heart, your mind, and in your everyday life, which reflects the character of God,

ex: compassion, kindness, and self-control

During our small group time, kids will learn to build meaningful relationships with their peers, and our Cannon Kids team members. Our team members will help kids review the Bible lesson and reemphasize what it means to live out the virtue in a fun, creative way!

Times
9:30am and 11:00am

Location and Ages
OZone is for K-4th grade, located on the 1st floor in the fellowship hall.

Things to Remember:
•    Make sure kids have their name tags
•    Make sure kids bring their Bibles
•    Let us know of any medical needs

Kids Cash
This is an incentive program for your elementary aged children. Each week your kids come to church,  they will receive kid cash for knowing their memory verse, bringing their Bible, bringing a friend, knowing the bottom line for the day, and so much more!

Our Kid Shop is open on the second Sunday of each month, located in the Fellowship Hall.

5th Grade

Our 5th graders have a separate program designed to be all their own. Our goal is to help them to make a transition from “Children’s Church,” to a preteen group. We are passionate about helping them grow and strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ, while forming their head knowledge to an active relationship with Jesus. Touching on topics that relate to what they are going through today with a scriptural emphasis, as well as books of the Bible studies.
We are excited to see you kids live out their faith with those around them!

5th grade class is on the second floor near the Sanctuary, located in room B202 towards the Youth Center.
