EAST NORTHPORT, N.Y., AUGUST 20, 2015: With September right around the corner, the Children’s Ministry at Island Christian Church is packed with programs for back to school. Each ministry offered strives to promote God’s values and to help children realize that practicing faith is fun.
- Sunday School. This program focuses on teaching children about Jesus in an age-appropriate manner. Aside from having a time for worship, Bible stories, and group work, children make friends while getting to know God together.
- Preschool. Island Christian Church’s Preschool provides children, ranging between the ages of 2 and 4 (Pre-K), with a safe and comfortable environment to learn and grow in. The program proudly promotes nurturing a “Christ-like character” in all attendees. Some of the joyful activities that occur in the preschool are art, music, and gymnastics, amongst a multitude of other offerings.
- Boy’s Brigade. This program, split into Tree Climbers and Stockade groups, is led by fathers as they teach their boys to be men of God. Tree Climbers is for father and son duos with boys from kindergarten through 2nd grade, while Stockade is for 3rd-6th graders. Both groups in the Christian Service Brigade combine fun, games, and scripture, while providing a bonding experience as fathers guide their sons through God’s journey for them.
- Pioneer Girls. This program is for girls from age 4 all the way up to 6th graders. Different age groups are broken up into 4 categories: Scooters, Voyagers, Pathfinders, and Trailblazers. Pioneer Girls offers a fun and safe place that allows girls to build friendships and apply God’s word to their lives, while having fun! Earlybird registration for both Pioneer Girls and Christian Service Brigade begins on September 1st and offers a discount for those who choose to sign up in advance.
The community at Island Christian Church is pursuing the kind of Church life set forth in Scripture. The foundations of this church are Spirit-led worship, relevant teaching, authentic relationships, unceasing prayer and compassionate provision for the needy. We hope you will join us as we strive to demonstrate a compelling faith that will touch the lives of individuals within our large communities.
