After School Program
After School programming for grades K–5, Monday–Friday from 4:00– 6:00 p.m. Homework completion, gym and Bible teachings are components of our weekly classes. Tutoring is available for all of our children. Students are matched with volunteer tutors to strengthen weak areas and assist with special projects. Daily devotions allow us to examine Scripture and how it applies to our lives. Children learn songs and participate in activities that help them to grow in their relationship with Christ. A hot meal provided by Kid’s Café (Monday-Friday) Field Trips are frequently scheduled to explore our surrounding world and to encourage our young students to embrace the diversity of the city. Breakouts are offered periodically throughout the year to expose our students to topics such as art, craft-making, music, cooking, gardening and a variety of other activities. We look for talent and put it to use in classes that expand student horizons.
The Children’s Christmas Store is a store set up by the staff with donations of items that children can select for their parents/guardians for Christmas. There is also a yearly Christmas Party for the K-5 classes. They have a meal, visit with Santa, play games, and receive presents that were donated from various groups (pajamas, coats, slippers, toys, etc.).
The goal of our Children’s Summer Program is to offer a fun, educational setting for our students during their school break. Our hope is to maintain a structured learning environment that keeps children learning year round. Tutoring and remedial help is available during our summer hours. Daily devotions allow us to examine Christian living and how it applies to our lives. Children learn songs and participate in activities that help them to grow in their relationship with Christ. Weekly Field Trips are a special part of our summer program. Summer breakouts are offered weekly to expose our students to topics such as art, craft-making, music, cooking, gardening and a variety of other activities. We look for talent and put it to use in classes that expand student horizons.
