Children and Family Ministry

Bishop Janes provides engaging and fun opportunities to learn how Christian faith relates to their daily life for children.  These various activities, while fun, provides solid Bible based lessons to help them mature as Christians.

Sunday School

Bishop Janes invests in young disciples with solid Biblical learning and hands-on mission projects.  Sunday School consists of Beginner Classes (Pre K) and Rotation Classes (grades K through 5).  In order to relate the Bible teachings to their daily lives, the children are given opportunities to participate in mission projects to be well rounded Christians.

Vacation Bible School

We do things in a big way when it comes to summer Vacation Bible School.  A different theme is chosen for each year, and it is always a big success!  In 2014, our ninth year, we had 160 kids ranging from ages 3 to 11.  Over 70 teen and adult volunteers came together as well to make this program successful.  At G-Force VBS 2015, kids will explore how to put their faith into action and experience God’s unstoppable love.
