CBS News December 2018

What a blessing we all received at CBS on Sunday, November 11th. There were 10 children present and 6 adults who heard the story of Jesus healing the ten lepers as told by our puppets Pink and Tigger. Following that they completed the bulletin board about thankful hearts then painted over a secret message from God. 

Our next event will be a HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS party on Sunday, December 2 from 3:30-5:00 in the youth lounge.

Children’s Bible Study

We were blessed to have 15 children at our December Children’s Bible Study. We had such a good time studying God’s message of Christmas with the children.

This was the first time some of the children had attended and we feel sure that it will continue to grow and become an important part of our Children’s program.

We invite you to stop by the children’s room and check out what we have been doing. Be sure and notice the bulletin board outside the door.

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

CHILDREN’S COUNCIL REPORT – End of School Blast! – May 2017

Our May event was an End of School Blast held in the youth lounge. 7 children were present. They had a marvelous time. Activities incuded:

  • A lesson about Jesus being our shepherd and how that correlated to a shepherd watching sheep.
  • The craft was making sheep for a bulletin with the Bible verse—We are the sheep of his pasture.
  • They children voted between the two movies, “The Secret Life of Pets” or “Trolls” to watch. The winning movie was “Trolls.” They were served popcorn and drinks while watching the movie.(no spills either) They loved the movie. (Thanks to Babette for technical support)
  • We ended the evening with delicious hot dogs and chips.


I would like to thank all the committee members in the planning of and or helping at all events. We have a great committee who is willing to help in any way possible.

Children’s Ministry News – May 2017

We are thankful to God for working through our church to serve children in our area.
The Children’s committee would like to let you know that our Easter event was definitely a success. There were 17 children!!! YAY! The activities included the story about Jesus riding the donkey through the street on Palm Sunday, a parade with the children shouting and waving palm branches, an egg hunt, petting live bunnies, the Easter story and refreshments.
We also had lots of good help from our youth and our committee members. We would like to thank the youth for hiding the eggs, Jolene for bringing 3 of her live rabbits, and our church family for prayers and contributions. Because of all the contributions made by so many we sent the children home with plastic eggs filled with candy but also A LOT MORE!
