Bible Buddies Children's Church Program

For Children ages 2 - 5

The Bible Buddies program began as just a glorified baby-sitting time, but as the other programs in the Children’s ministry blossomed, it was clear that this precious time with these young ones should not be wasted.  We also saw a need to teach proper Church etiquette to our little ones.  Many of the items used in the program come from other programs in our church. It not only offers reinforcement of the concepts, it allows for sharing of supplies.

The program consists of the following sections.

Opening Program-Using some of the same songs used in the Cradleroll and Kindergarten Sabbath Schools

Virtue Theme Program-Centered around the book "First Virtues for Toddlers" by Mary Simon, each month features a separate theme.  The story is read and there is a poem and action song that completes the theme.  We also have a take home sticker page that reinforces the theme and memory verse.

Church Time Program-takes the children through a mock church service teaching them when to stand or sit and how to be quient du;ring the sermon.

Closing and Snacks: After the closing we provide some healthful snacks including fresh fruit.
