Kids Club @ the Creek

Kids Club at the Creek is designed solely to help children seek, serve, and share Jesus with all their hearts in a safe, high-energy, enriching environment for preschoolers to preteens. Our children are led in many different learning experiences by adults and youth who are visible examples of God’s love. The children are nurtured through Sunday morning Bible study, worship, missions, activities, trips, camp, fun, and fellowship.


Our Aim

Welcome everyone in a comfortable environment where we push our children to wrestle with a better understanding of Jesus Christ.

Disciple children as they increasingly gain a Biblical understanding of their daily walk with Christ through small and large groups, singing, games, sports, and Biblical teaching.

Safety & Security of the children is of utmost importance. All Kids Club volunteers are subjected to a background check and children must be checked in using our electronic check-in kiosk. Parents or Guardians will receive a sticker which must be returned when checking out your child.

3 Truths of the Gospel

Jesus is God

Jesus died for our sin

Everyone who calls on the name of Jesus will be saved

Schedule

Sunday Mornings begin at 9am with children in their classes learning about the Bible. Two Sundays per month, the children will have the option to leave the 10:30 worship service for Kid’s Club Worship. Parent’s may pick-up their child in the Children’s Ministry Wing at the conclusion of the 10:30 worship service. If you need assistance locating your child’s Sunday morning classroom, any of our greeters, located at the building entrances, will be happy to assist.
 

Sunday Evenings from 5-7pm from August until May, children participate in AWANA and continue to learn about the Bible through stories, memorization and games.

Wednesday Evenings from 6-8pm, Children participate in Rec night. We all realize that mid-week meetings need to be high-energy for children so we let them run...a lot. We focus on games that will teach Bible stories and are high-energy in nature.

Awana

From August through May, Town Creek offers Awana on Sunday nights from 5-7p for ages 2K through 5th grade. Awana is an international, Bible-centered Children’s ministry providing local churches with weekly clubs, programs and training. The goal of Awana is to equip churches to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. The acronym “AWANA” comes from the letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.

puggles

Puggles recognizes the learning ability of 2 and 3 year olds by introducing biblical precepts at church and equipping parents to teach them at home. Toddlers love having their very own Awana club just like their older siblings.

In Puggles, children are welcomed each week with play time, songs and simple crafts and activities. Leaders present age-appropriate lessons using large, colorful teaching cards, finger puppet plays and more. Lessons teach and reinforce four basic biblical precepts:
• God Made Everything
• God Saw That It Was Good
• God is Love
• Give Thanks

Special take-home cards that correspond to each week’s lesson help parents nurture their child’s faith at home. Participating in Puggles will give your child a head start on the path to loving and following God for life.

cubbiesCubbies celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3 to 5 year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.

Preschoolers can hardly wait for their next Cubbies club meeting. Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games,or all their Cubbies friends, they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.

Cubbies helps you lead your child to God early so she will respect and trust Him for life.

sparks
Sparks ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.

To many children in kindergarten to second grade, Sparks is the highlight of the week! They love their red vests, the exciting games and spending time with leaders and friends.

Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider, WingRunner and SkyStormer. Each year, Sparks clubbers:
• explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture
• memorize Bible verses
• complete handbook activities

The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time lessons from the WHO Do I Need to Know From the Bible series, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!

tntTruth & Training engages third through sixth graders by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ’s grace.

Handbooks and large-group lessons deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.

T&T is different from other Awana programs. It is comprised of two clubs with distinct curriculum, uniforms and awards:

•T&T Ultimate Adventure for third and fourth grades
•T&T Ultimate Challenge for fifth grade

The two clubs are designed to help kids stay plugged into T&T as they move into the preteen years and continue growing in their relationship with Christ.

Splash Cash

The Kids Club @ The Creek Splash Cash Store is designed to reward children for their participation in ministries while they are learning about God’s greater reward!

Splash Cash

The kids are motivated to earn Splash Cash to buy candy, toys, gifts, and other cool stuff while learning about Christ and hiding God’s word in their hearts! This has proven to be an exciting attraction for the children and great motivation for them.
 
While this ministry is supported by the church budget, the majority of the toys in the store are donations from our faith family and friends. You can always support this ministry through your normal financial giving or drop off a toy/gift donation to the church office.

Children earn Splash Cash by:

  • Scripture Memorization
  • Completing Homework Assignments
  • Bringing Their Bible to Church
  • Bringing Friends to Sunday School, Awana, Choir
  • Partipating in Other Special Activities
