Preschool & Children
The purpose of Cookeville Kids is to see children desire God, be discipled, and dedicate themselves to service in God’s Kingdom. We do this by partnering with and equipping families to share Jesus with their children at home (Deut. 6:6-9). We love seeing children coming to know Jesus and the love that God has for them.
On Sunday mornings during the 8:45 hour we have Sunday School classes for each age from birth-6th grade. Our preschool wing is on the second floor. You will find the Kindergarten class on the 2nd floor and 1st-6th grade rooms on the 3rd floor. This is a great time for children to make friends and learn about Jesus as they are taught by caring and loving adults.
Children’s Church is available for 4 year olds-Kindergartners each Sunday during the 10 am worship service. This worship time is designed just for them and meets in Room 249. Cookeville Kids Worship for 1st-6th graders meets the second Sunday of each month in the Chapel at 10 am. We’re currently studying about how to make choices to shine Jesus light into the world.
Childcare is provided for birth-3 year olds in the nursery at 6:30 pm. We have TeamKid for 4 & 5 year olds on the 2nd floor. TeamKid provides a balance of games and activities along with Bible stories and scripture learning. Children in 1st-6th grade currently have the option of attending I’m a Christian Now taught by Ann Hertzfeldt and Colleen Cox or participating in Bible Drill from 5:30-6:30 pm. I’m a Christian Now teaches kids how to become a Christian, how to follow Jesus’ example, how to share their testimony and more about what it means to be a believer of Jesus Christ. In Bible Drill children learn how to use their Bible, find books of the Bible and memorize scripture. From 6:30-7:00p we move to the Family Life Center where we play games with purpose.
We offer age graded choirs for 3 year olds-6th graders each Wednesday at 5:30 pm. The Preschool Choir meets in Room 252 while the Children’s Choirs (1st-3rd grade & 4th-6th grade) meet on the 3rd floor. At 6:30 pm, our 3 year olds-kindergartners go to Mission Friends in Room 249 while children go to RAs (boys) and GAs (girls) on the 3rd floor where they learn about how to minister to others in our community and around the world. Nursery care is provided for birth-2 year olds at 6:30.
