LIL ACRES NURSERY {BIRTH - 3}

Welcome to Lil' Acres Nursery! 

Sunday Morning Services 9:15-12:00 // Wednesday Evening Services 6:45-8:30


Lil Acres is the first step of Kids Ministry here at Charity. We believe our opportunity to influence, impact and to shape a life begins here. It is our priority to provide a safe environment for parents to leave their children (Birth – 3 yrs.) with leaders who see their time with them as time to love and minister to them. 

Our purpose is twofold; to give parents and the children the opportunity to Know Jesus as their Savior, Grow in their relationship with Him, Serve Jesus with their gifts and abilities, and to Go make disciples. 


Safety // Security

We believe the safety of your children is of utmost importance. We have a security system in place where on your first visit you will be asked to fill out a first time connection card for your child that gives us your mobile number where we can reach you by text should your child need you during service. We also ask for any allergies your child may have. This information will be entered into our check-in system and you will receive not only a name tag that will be placed on your child but you will also receive a security sticker that you will return upon pick up in order to check your child out.

CHARITY KIDS {PRE-K - 5TH}

WHY CHILDREN'S MINISTRY?

Our vision as a church for our children’s ministry is for your children to enter into an environment where it is easy for them to know, grow, serve and go. We desire for them to know who Jesus is and grow in their relationship with him. We want your children to learn how to serve inside and outside of the church in order for them to take their ministry into the world for the rest of their lives.


WHAT DO SUNDAYS LOOK LIKE FOR KIDS AT CHARITY?

JR.FIRED UP {SUNDAY MORNING}  

This is our very own "preschool" church service! Our loving leaders cherish every moment with the children. They experience game time, craft time, snack, worship and a lesson every Sunday morning. Jr. Fired Up takes place from 10:30- noon, in the RDC center located beside the main sanctuary. Your little one is going to love it here!


SMALL GROUPS & FIRED UP WORSHIP {SUNDAY MORNING}

The children here love Sundays. At 9:30am all children, 1st-5th Grade meet in the Roger Dale Carter Center for a Pre-Fired Up experience. This includes a welcome from one of the leaders, a quick video showing the children what they are going to be focusing on today, an emphasis on scripture memory, and breakfast. 

At 10:30 we kick children's ministry in overdrive with Fired Up. Fired Up is a church service for children. Our awesome Fired Up leadership team provides moments of fun praise and worship, wacky games and unique and creative Bible lessons. They will then we sent to small groups where they are being taught the Bible story again using activities and games for hands on learning with friends their age. 

Warning: If your kid comes, they will not want to leave! =)


Safety // Security

It is our mission here at Charity to make sure your family is safe in every area on our campus. Upon your arrival to drop your kids off with us, your child will be checked into our system and you will receive a security sticker to take with you that corresponds to your child. After service when you return to pick up your child you will return this security tag to check your child out.

  • WORSHIP ARTS MINISTRY


    PURPOSE FOR WORSHIP ARTS MINISTRIES

    Art should move people. Simply put, good art moves people; bad art doesn’t. So, any art done in the name of God, under the banner of Christianity, ought to be done in such a way that it moves people. If it isn’t moving people, then it must be improved upon or not used at all. This is not to say that it has to be perfect, but it must be done with excellence – the best one can do with what he or she has been given. As artists offer their gifts and abilities to be used by God, they create moments of awe that effectively resonate His life-changing message to others, moments of awe where the hearts of others are opened to the grace and goodness of God.


    HOW CAN WORSHIP ARTS BE USED IN THE CHURCH?

    As an instrument to bless, inspire, teach, and encourage (in a word, move) the church body The arts have always been used to bless, inspire, teach, and encourage (beginning with God creating the universe!). Following His example, art – done well – can be used in the church to bless God’s people. God, the prophets, Jesus, and many others used songs, stories, dramatic elements, and visuals to minister in one way or another. Good art moves people emotionally and paves the road for a life-changing message. Good art provides an avenue for people to express their worship of God. As a tool to proclaim God’s glory to those who don’t know Him Whether creating, performing, or displaying the arts to the community outside the church, they can be used as a tool for outreach and proclamation of the name of Jesus. Art can be used to convey a message that sometimes words alone cannot. As an opportunity for artistic people to express worship in creative ways, individually and corporately Singing, painting, acting, etc. are outlets for artists to create and perform for the glory of God, whether they do it privately or collectively. Not only is it gratifying for the artists to use the talent God has given them, but it is also a privilege to present it as worship to Him. As a bonding agent to bring and hold together a community of creative, talented believers Everyone has been created to know and be known, love and be loved, and serve and be served. Though commonly introverted, artists still share that same need. Having artistic tendencies and characteristics, artists can draw from a natural synergy and relate together well as a community of artists.

  • MISSIONS

    VISION

    We believe it is the personal responsibility of every believer to actively live out the Great Commission of making disciples in all the earth, by giving through Faith Promise, going across the street and around the world with the love and good news of Christ, praying for the work already being done and that God would send out laborers into the fields, and welcoming the nations arriving at our doorstep. Following the pattern demonstrated in Acts 1:8, we believe this must be applied in both local and global contexts, as well as in different cultures within our own borders. 


    As a global strategy, we believe our three-fold task as a church is to proclaim the gospel to the least reached and plant churches where there is no evangelical presence (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 15:20-21), to come alongside of and empower struggling local churches in areas where they already exist (Acts 8:14), and to provide for the most vulnerable by demonstrating the compassionate love of Christ (Matthew 15:30-31; Luke 4:18-19). 


    LOCAL MISSIONS

    UPCOMING MISSION TRIPS 

    Tanzania - July 22nd - 31st 2019


    FAITH PROMISE GIVING The Faith Promise Offering is a method of giving to missions by individuals or families through their local church. A Faith Promise is made to contribute a certain amount, either weekly or monthly, to the missionary fund of the local church over and above the usual tithe, building fund, and other offerings. It is based upon faith and is given first, just as the tithe, trusting God for needs. It follows the basic biblical principle of sowing and reaping, sowing always being first. 


    GIC (Global Impact Celebration) 

    Our annual GIC is a time dedicated to celebrating all that God has been doing around the world and inspiring the church body for greater involvement in His Great Commission.
