Children’s Music Ministry
JAM (Jesus and Me): Children in 3rd-5th grade meet from 4:30-5:30 on Sunday afternoons starting in September to learn various types of music on the hand chimes and to sing. They have several opportunities to play the chimes and sing during church services, Angel Vespers, and church musicals.
Jesus Jammers: Children in K-2nd grade join JAM from 5:00-5:30 on Sundays to sing and have fun! They learn the basics of how to sing in a group and have fun learning a variety of music including hymns, contemporary music, spirituals, and children’s songs. They have chances to sing during church services, Angel Vespers, and church musicals. Kids in JAM and Jesus Jammers also participate in fellowship activities – some past activities include ice cream socials, fall parties, roller skating parties, and spring picnics.
Musical Explorers: Children ages 2-Kindergarten participate in this program on Sunday mornings starting in September-April. A music volunteer(s) meets the children in the nursery after they leave the sanctuary and teaches our youngest children several simple, fun Bible songs. They have opportunities to sing during Angel Vespers and typically once or twice during Sunday morning services.
Vacation Bible School
June 8-11, 2015 — It’s Great to be Green!
As “Caretakers of God’s Creation” we will learn to be green as we investigate ways to reduce our garbage by reusing containers, broken clay pots, and clutter from our homes. This year we are fortunate to join First Baptist Church of Clemson for Vacation Bible School. Together we will learn how to be better stewards of the Earth God has created for us. We will encourage an appreciation of the beauty and purpose of this Earth. Our scripture study is the first two chapters of Genesis and Psalm 148 leading us to understand what it means “to rule everything” God’s hands have made. Please join us for this four-day VBS. The day is divided into a morning session for ages 4 years-second grade (9:30am-12:30pm) and an afternoon session for grades 3-5 (1:00-4:00pm).
Nothin’ But Net Basketball program is also offered during the same four days for kindergarten through fifth graders looking for activity from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Lunch may be selected for full day participants. Third-fifth graders may enjoy basketball in the morning and VBS in the afternoon. Kindergarten through second grade aged children have the opportunity to participate in VBS in the morning and basketball during the afternoon.
Please register by June 1 to join us for this wonderful time of fellowship, fun and study with our neighbors at First Baptist. If you want a T-shirt, registration must be completed by May 29. See the VBS & Nothin’ But Net Registration Form 2015 for further information. Each child attending must have a form completely filled out. Contact Cyndi Davis with questions.
