Children's Ministry Lesson for May 17

Children's Ministry
A child is a wonderful gift from God! At Gethsemane we have designed a wide variety of ministries to meet the needs of children and their families. 

Baptism Education
Baptism education is offered to families in preparation for a child's baptism service. Splash! newsletters, sent monthly for the first three years, offer ideas for faith-filled play, worship and prayers.

Children in Worship
Worship services involve children in many ways, such as children's messages, the blessing of children during Holy Communion, special children's bulletins and activity bags. The Sunday School children sing during worship four times a year. All Sunday School families have the opportunity to participate in serving communion, ushering and greeting.

Sunday School
Sunday School is offered for children age 3 through grade 6 at 9:40 AM. Children learn about Jesus, pray together, sing together, and have fun! Bible stories are taught in a variety of active ways linking Bible learning with daily life experiences. Each Sunday School class learns memory work throughout the year that they present to a Pastor in May.
