Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."
We greatly value the children of Strafford 1st Assembly. We work very hard to ensure that every age group is ministered to in a productive way and to ensure the safety of your children. All of our children's workers have had background checks and are trusted parts of our church body. Come and allow your children the experience of learning about and experiencing God in an environment that is fun and where they are taught at their level of learning. We do not believe that the working of the Holy Spirit was to be relegated only to adults but that as children step out in faith they can walk in and experience the power of God. We would love to have your child join us!
This is our children's church program which runs at the same time as our regular Sunday morning service. We are glad to give your children a place to go where they will have a blast worshiping with other kids their age, learning the word, and playing games. Your children will love their time while you are in service and will be glad to come back again.
Our boys starting at age 4 can join the Royal Rangers Wednesday nights at 7 pm. In a fun environment they learn about the Bible and also learn many pioneer type skills as well. Throughout the year they can earn different badges and we are glad to honor them in a special adult service where we acknowledge and celebrate their accomplishments. Royal Rangers begins at age 4 and when they enter 6th grade they have the option to either stay in Rangers or to go to youth. Some Rangers choose to stay in and earn awards at the highest caliber. Our Ranger Commander has been involved in Rangers for over 40 years and does an excellent job.
Our Girls Ministry meets every Wednesday night at 7 pm and is an awesome and safe place for girls to grow in relationship with God and each other. Our Children's Pastor Allie Thompson leads the ministry and does a great job. They'll worship, learn the Word, and also do other activities that they'll enjoy. Ages 5-12 are welcome to attend. All of our girls look forward to Girls Ministry every week.
