CHILDREN HAVE GREAT VALUE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Jennifer Galarneau

LiFEKiDS at Saratoga Abundant Life Church is a place where children, up to 12 years old, come to learn about God and experience His love in a safe, fun environment. Each week, our dedicated teachers bring Bible-based lessons that include fun and fellowship – it is a place where children know they belong… and where they can learn what it means to belong to Jesus Christ! Can children know who God is?  Can they experience a faith that gives them strength?  Can they minister God’s love to others?  Yes, Yes, Yes!!!  And we desire to be a support to parents in our congregation who are raising their children to live for Christ.

Wee Life logoWEE LiFE nursery (0 – 2 years old)

Ministry Coordinator: Karie Garrow

The ministry of WEE LiFE is two-fold.  We lovingly care for the littlest ones in our church family, and we bless the parents with the freedom to worship and listen to the message without distraction. We are motivated by a desire to honor God in supporting these young families. WEE LiFE is a happy place for infants and toddlers!  Those who are old enough have a fun, simple lesson & worship from Orange Curriculum First Look.  Snack is served, and there is much playtime as well.  These precious ones are cared for by screened and trained volunteers who are members of our church family.

 

LiTTLE LiFERS preschool (3 years old through kindergarten)

Ministry Coordinator: Karen Lilienthal

We know things are busy at this stage of life! So we have created an environment just for Preschoolers & Kindergarteners where they can learn about God through many hands on activities. There is sure to be a lot of jumping, dancing, singing and laughter in every experience! We use Orange Curriculum.
It is our hope that every LiTTLE LiFER will know :
*God LOVES me.
*God MADE me.
*God wants to be my FRIEND forever.
What a priviledge to be part of a child’s first impressions of God! We look forward to helping your child learn more about Him. These children are cared for and taught by screened and trained volunteers who are members of our church family.

These two groups will meet after worship. (appproximately 10:15am)

BiG LiFE elementary (first – fifth grade)

Ministry Coordinator: Jennifer Galarneau

Children in first through fifth grade are very important in the Kingdom of God! They are curious about the world, they are learning how to interact socially, and they are starting to understand who God is and why He loves them so much. We want to help families as they raise their children to love and serve the Lord. We want children to experience God’s love in a deep way, to love being at church, and to know that here, they belong. We use a Large Group/Small Group format that keeps them moving, learning, and having fun while they are interacting with screened and trained volunteers who are members of our church family.

 

LiFE 4:12 middle school (sixth – eighth grade)

Ministry Coordinator: Jennifer Galarneau

Middle School is a time in a young personʼs life when so many things are changing and maturing, that weʼve decided to embrace these changes and growing independence by creating an environment that allows and even encourages our
LiFE 4:12 youth to ask questions about their faith and explore their doubts and concerns about Christianity in general as well as their personal relationship with Jesus. What a privilege to be a part of facilitating your LiFE 4:12 youth in developing a closer personal relationship with Jesus!
