About Sovereign Grace Fellowship
Classes are offered for children during service, except for Family Sundays (first Sunday each month)
The curriculum we use is Route 52’s Explore Bible Stories. It is a fantastic curriculum focused on teaching kids the Bible and glorifying God. Every week kids will receive a lesson from the teacher, as the curriculum moves through the Bible, exploring God’s word from Genesis to Revelation. They will learn a “Big Idea” every week, but will also be working through the tougher concepts (why do bad things happen to good people, etc…) we as Christians have to face, with answers coming from scripture. Every unit they memorize a new song and there are memory verses every week.
Teens are instructed in solid Biblical truth.

Youth Ministry – Ransomed
1st & 3rd Sundays, 6:00 p.m. Youth Group at the Church for youth in the 6th – 12th grade. There are monthly events that the youth participate in.
Good Time of Worship, Lesson, and Prayer.
We provide childrens ministry on Sunday morning for ages 2-11. The age breakdown for the 3 classes are as follows:
Toddler Program – Proficient Walkers to age 2, Preschool – potty trained ages 3-4, Grades K-2 (5-8), and Grades 3-5 (9-11). The children stay in service for worship and are released during the offering. Children are more than welcome to remain in service if the parents prefer to keep them in service. There are also seasonal events for children.
We appreciate the advantages of family integrated worship and therefore keep children in service every first Sunday of the month for the entire service. This is also due to the fact that many of our children are baptized members of the church and should rightly participate in the Lord’s Supper. To receive the Lord’s Supper without the entire Body of Christ fully assembled would actually undermine the symbolic meaning of the church’s unity, not to mention deprive believing children of the means of grace in the holy meal. Just to be clear, only believing members should receive the meal in active participation through faith in Christ. The other Sundays are left to the decision of parents. We don’t view the preference of parents as a litmus test for Godly parenting. We emphasize and resource our parents to conduct discipleship in the home.
We use Children Desiring God curriculum, make use of the Baptist Catechism, and emphasize weekly Bible memorization through Fighter Verses.
