We are Cookeville Kids. We are Cookeville Kids because we are called to reach Cookeville Kids with the Gospel. We want to see children desire God, be discipled, and dedicate themselves to service in God’s Kingdom. Our desire for our Children’s Ministry (K-6th grades) is that all children encounter Jesus Christ, are encouraged in their spiritual growth, equipped for lifelong service, and engage in the church and the community. 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. We have activities throughout the week and year to help your child grow in their knowledge of Jesus Christ.
On Sunday mornings during the 8:45 hour we have Sunday School classes for each grade. 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 adults whose desire is to love, nurture, and train children for the Kingdom of God.
Children’s Church is available for Kindergartners each Sunday during the 10:00a worship service. This worship time is designed just for them and meets in Room 249.
Junior Church, worship time designed for 1st-6th grades, is the 2nd Sunday of each month in the chapel on the 1st floor. The next Junior Church is August 9. For the next several months we’ll be studying what it means to be a disciple and the spiritual disciplines (reading Bible, prayer, giving, community) a disciple should have in his/her life during Junior Church.
During the summer we have Summer Sunday Fun in the Family Life Center at 6p. During this time we enjoy fun games/recreation activities, share a devotion and at times go do mission work. Beginning August 9 we’ll have Bible Buddies and Bible Drill along with TeamKid from 5:30-7:00p.
Our children’s choirs and missions activities are on a break for the summer. During the summer, TeamKID, a fun, high-energy discipleship program, will meet from 6:00-7:30p in the Family Life Center. Children in 1st-6th grade will engage in Bible study, scripture memorization, life application, missions and recreation as a part of TeamKID.
Beginning August 5 we will offer several children’s choirs each Wednesday on the 3rd floor at 5:30p. It is a joy to see children singing about God and their savior, Jesus Christ. At 6:30p, children go to RA’s (boys) and GA’s (girls) where they learn about missions and the Bible. RA’s and GA’s are both located on the 3rd floor.
We’ll have a Back to School Kickoff on Wednesday, July 29 at 6p in the Family Life Center, featuring individual and team games, music and more.
