Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 NASB
Messianic education is provided on Shabbat during the sermon. During Torah Time Saplings, the children focus on studying the weekly Torah portion as well as other Torah-based principles for living. Each month the head picks a theme for the month that the lessons center on. In addition to the lessons, the children also participate in activities and games that apply to the lesson. The Torah Time Saplings aspire to teach the word of God in a fun and hands on manner. Our hope is to facilitate a setting that encourages a relationship with God and a setting that is engaging and enjoyable to the saplings. On Shabbat, Torah Time Sprouts is available for children 6 through 11 years of age from approximately 2:00 to 3:00 PM. The class is located in the fellowship hall is free and open to everyone while attending our Shabbat Service.
We have four main teachers that engage the children in distinct and different ways. We also have teachers assistants and provide youth, ages 12 to 18, the opportunity to assist the teachers in class. If you have a desire to serve in this ministry whether that be as a teacher, a teacher's assistant, or as youth assistant please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Laurie Flynn.
