God's little lambs will begin to learn Scripture with a nurturing, dedicated group of teachers, using age appropriate lessons. We bring the Bible to life and share stories with your little ones in a fun, creative environment.
Children visit a different workshop every Sunday. Over the course of four to five weeks, they will be immersed in a single biblical story as they move through the various workshops and come to know Christ in a whole new way so they may share his light with others.
Tweens focus on and reinforce a theme by watching a video that combines witty slap-stick humor with solid theology.They explore biblical text found throughout the Bible’s greatest stories and grow to understand and connect the narrative arc of the Bible—from Creation to New Creation. Every lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make and Tweens ask questions, make connections, and reflect on what they have learned, as well as create games, art and more.
Each fifth Sunday we have a group event for Little Lambs, Lighthouse & Connect!

Cain & Abel Workshop Descriptions:
Games: While playing the stomp balloon game, children will discuss the importance of "owning" the consequences of their actions with honesty since we are called as believers to embrace truth, which honors our Lord who is "the way, and the truth, and the life" (John 14:6a). They will also have a chance to share something that happened in their own life that may have been hard to be honest about.
Helping Hands: The children will do an experiment that will help to illustrate the condition of Abel's and Cain's hearts when they gave their gifts to God. Youth that have attended a mission trip will share their experience of giving their best to God and the impact it had on their faith.
Video: The children will watch segments of The Parent Trap (1998) and discuss how its themes relate to the story of Cain and Abel.
Art: The children will create works of the "heart" that express the emotions of Cain and Abel through color and art.
Who? Club 456 is for all current 4th, 5th & 6th graders. Friends of 456’ers are always welcome and new members can join anytime! We also love our Adult and Teen volunteers, and there are always many opportunities to help!
What? Our motto is food, fun, fellowship and faith! After a quick ice breaker, we jump into short lessons—MINIstries—that address an area of interest to our tweens through games, discussion, activities and art—any creative way to access scripture that is important to their understanding of the world. We then enjoy dinner and dessert in the Celtic Cross Room, where we like to focus on a mission initiative or upcoming event.Then we run, quite literally, to the gym, where we finish with games such as Scatterball, Nine Square, Gaga, etc. and sometimes special contests. IT. IS. SO. MUCH. FUN.
When? Wednesdays 5:30 – 7:15 pm/$5 meal fee for drop ins. We also do field trips and service projects!

Where? Drop off and pick up can be done at the “loop” (the alley behind Andrews Hall where the Gym double doors are), or by entering the main doors of Andrews Hall on Mechanics Street and proceeding down the staircase to the gym.
Why? We believe that learning about God through fun activities aimed at relationship building will create a solid foundation for a life long journey in Christ. Also, to quote the wisdom of Dr. Seuss, “these things are fun and fun is good.”
