SPARKS will resume in September.

SPARKS Wednesdays is a Christian fellowship group for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  We meet Wednesday afternoons, September through April.  We have fun and enjoy being together as we learn more about Jesus and his love.

Our Program

Kids will have a great time playing with friends every Wednesday. SPARKS begins at 3:00 p.m.  Parents carpool to transport children from the schools.  If there is a large group of kids coming from one school, a church bus pick-up may be arranged.  Snacks are provided as the kids enjoy free time on Generations Park.  At 3:40, we will break into smaller groups for our Bible Chat, choir, art/science and more!  Pickup is at 5:30 p.m.

Bible Chat

Mark 12:30-31  "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." The second is this, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.’

Our Bible Chats are a time to focus on our Bible lesson for the week.

Musical Opportunities

Our SPARKS choir will provide fun opportunities to prepare us for Sunday Morning Worship services, along with the special Christmas and Spring Musical productions.  In the past, we offered a chimes choir as well.  Our SPARKS CHOIR & CHIMES will perform periodically in Sunday Morning Worship, as well as other opportunities in our community. Musical productions and Christmas caroling will be a highlight for all!


Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 3:45-4:45.


Always a lesson to be learned using the Good Book, The Bible, and His awesome creation! Our SPARKS Team has fun pulling together creative projects and cool experiments.
