At Alleluia! we have "faith milestones" for 1st grade through 5th grade. These are VERY important times in a child's FAITH development. At each milestone, the child's knowledge and love for Jesus continues to grow. All faith milestone instruction is achieved using age appropriate materials. We encourage you to contact Director Children's Ministry Director, April Blair, with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
1st Grade: "The Lord's Prayer"
Jesus taught his disciples the Lord's Prayer. There is some verbiage that might be unfamiliar to children. We look at different versions of The Lord's Prayer and explain that there is NO PERFECT PRAYER. Games and other activities teach the first graders what this prayer is all about! This faith milestone takes place in May of each year.
2nd Grade: "The Ten Commandments"
Moses met God on Mt. Sinai/Horeb (book of Deuteronomy) and was given the Ten Commandments. These were given as "life milestones" to guide us throughout our lives. Music, games, and other activities will be used to help our second graders instill these in their own lives. This faith milestone takes place in October of each year.
3rd Grade: "Bible Presentation"
Any child in 3rd grade or above may receive a Bible during any of our worship services on Bible Presentation weekend. After the presentation, recipients join others at KidsConnect to play games and explore their new Bibles. We encourage all children 3rd grade and above to bring their Bibles to KidsConnect each week as we will use our Bibles during that time.
4th Grade: "First Communion"
First Communion instruction is designed for children 4th-6th grade. This instruction is led by Pastor Mark and other Alleluia! staff with parent volunteers as small group discussion leaders. First Communion takes place each year during Holy Week. Please see the information on First Communion 2022 below under FAMILY EVENTS CALENDAR.
5th Grade: "Created By God"
Created By God is a Christian-based sexuality course designed for 5th and 6th grade students. We value this opportunity to offer human sexuality instruction in the context of Christian values. There is a mandatory parent orientation prior to our student sessions to offer parents the opportunity to view materials and ask questions. CBG takes place yearly in January.
K3 - Special Time for Kindergarten - 3rd Graders!
All Kinder-3rd Graders are invited to meet Ms. Michele in the Music Room every Wednesday at 5:45-6:30pm. Please be sure to check your email as we might end in a different location.
