It opens each Sunday morning at 10.45am to welcome the children and their parents, once the children are settled parents get the chance to relax and enjoy the morning service while their children are being cared for by a team of dedicated helpers.
Creche caters for babies and children up to 3-4 years before they move on to Sunday School. Creche provides a great ministry where we can meet and build relationships with parents and children.
A parents room is provided in the church for parents who wish to use it during our church service. The church service is televised into the parents’ room allowing parents to engage in the service while being in a relaxed environment with their baby/child.
Sunday school meets every Sunday ( September-June) from 11.30am to 12.30pm in our church building. We have 9 teachers and 9 helpers, all on a rotational basis each week. All of our teachers and helpers are Garda-vetted.
We have four different classes; Footprints to Faith, E.D.G.E, Pathfinders and Bible Class. We meet in our Sunday school classes from 11.30am-12.15pm, where age appropriate bible stories and lessons are taught. Our stories and lessons are centred around the gospel and involve a biblical truth and life application. We encourage each child to learn the scriptures by way of a memory verse each week.
Every Sunday we also meet together for singing up in the Crossroads building after our 45 minutes of classes. As a team we try to introduce new songs about God’s love and songs which the children enjoy to sing.
Here is a little about each class:
Footprints to Faith: This class has all of the pre-school and junior infant children. We have a teacher in this classroom with two helpers each week giving a helping hand to show the love of God and teach each child the word of God. We teach the word of God through stories and activities.
E.D.G.E: Children in senior infants and 1st class attend this class which is led by one of our teachers along with a helper each Sunday. Many stories from the bible are taught to each child displaying God’s love and showing how they can Experience and Discover God Everywhere (EDGE).
Pathfinders: In this class we have the 2nd class and the 3rd class children. We thank God for these children as they continue to grow in their faith and reveal their talents and gifts through Sunday School.
Bible class: This class contains the 4th class and upwards children. This class focuses on an indepth bible study each week to help each young person to grow and get a better understanding of God’s word. We pray as a team that as these children begin to grow further in their Christian walk and as they face more worldly pressures that they will be confident and have the wisdom they need to give God all the glory in everything they do.
We are also actively involved in teaching the children about missionaries and giving towards their work. We also dedicate 4 Sundays a year to arts and crafts for the children. Our prayer is that each child will come to know The Lord Jesus as their own and personal Saviour early in life and that they would desire to follow Him and serve Him every day of their lives.
