Black Forest Children’s Church Vision
Our Children’s Church Program Vision is based on 1 Timothy 5:16-25. Within these verses is a call for all believers in Jesus Christ that applies to all ages, even our youngest: “Rejoice always…pray…give thanks…do no quench the Spirit…do not despise prophecies…test all things…abstain from evil…He who calls you is faithful who also will do it.” Our goal is to introduce children to the truth of the Bible resulting in their own dynamic relationship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Children enjoy corporate worship with their families before going to individual classes for preschool, K-2nd, and 3rd-5th grades. Our teachers approach each lesson with a plan based on scripture while aiming to allow their teaching time to be led by the Holy Spirit. Every 3rd Sunday, CC worship is alive and active with songs and dance.

We allow our youth (6th-12th graders) to rotate in as teacher helpers where they gain experience and confidence in working with young children. Our focus on genuine relationship building provides for a close community and a safe place for all to grow spiritually.
