Events for Families
Family Fun Night – Quarterly celebration
Explore Easter – Easter Sunday morning
We offer an interactive Easter celebration for our children, ages three through Fifth Grade in Tankersley Hall. Each service includes an opportunity for the children to visit different areas that address the week leading up to Easter and the celebration of Easter Sunday that includes crafts, readings and discussion. This is followed by an Easter egg hunt on the preschool lawn.
Bethlehem Village – Christmas Eve
During the Christmas season, Tankersley Hall is transformed into a Bethlehem Village where the kids enjoy experiencing activities and learning various facts about life during the time of Jesus. Teachers are dressed in period clothes and marketplace booths are set up. Children take part in weaving, spice preparation, games and crafts, tablet writing, and much more.
Events for Parents
MOMS is a weekly Bible study designed to nurture women towards a clearer understanding of their faith and to develop friendships that allow for an open and honest discussion of the issues we face as mothers. Moms of all ages are encouraged to join us. Bring a friend; drop-ins are welcome! We meet on Fridays, September through June, from 9:30 – 11:30AM in the Brides’ Room. There is a small materials fee. For additional information contact Caroline Millson.
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
Our MOPS+ (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers and Older) group is a special place where you can meet other mothers also passing through this unique stage of life. You’ll have a chance not only to make new friends, but also to discover a wealth of helpful hints and smarter strategies when dealing with the challenges of motherhood. Our program offers a morning of food, fun, creative activities, guest speakers on relevant topics such as parenting, relationships, marriage, and more! Plus attending children are cared for in our quality MOPPETS program! We have a wonderful nursery and amazing care givers who love to hold and rock babies. Toddlers and older have a great time playing and exploring the theme of the day in our spacious newly-built Youth Center.
