The Kidventure Children's Ministry at FMBC Bellflower focuses on teaching the foundational truths of our Christian faith to children up through 6th grade. We design the programs to help children learn about and grow in the Christian faith in a safe and fun environment. Furthermore, our nursery is available during both the English and Spanish services for children up to the age of 2 1/2 years old.
We have a new schedule on Sunday mornings, with a two-part Children's program. The first part, which starts at 9:45am, starts with the children singing praise songs, continues with an introduction to the day's lesson, and ends with an object lesson and a game.
The second part, which starts at 11:00am, differentiates the Bible teaching according to age level in order to provide curriculum at each child’s level. For the 5th and 6th graders the children are taught Bible and its principles using the Group LIVE three year curriculum. The children are taught the Bible basics along with various daily living situations and how to access the Bible for the best way to respond to these situations. The children in 1st – 4th grade are learning about different stories in the Bible using the Group “Living Inside Out” curriculum which includes a slightly deeper and more detailed lesson from the Bible and a craft/memory maker. Our precious 2 through Kindergarten are going through the Bible using a three year program using the ABA Bogard Press curriculum. The children taught the Bible using different modalities and are given age appropriate interactive activities to reinforce the lessons.
It is the hope of the Kidventure program that in using these different approaches for the various age groups it will reinforce the week's main point and help the children learn about who God is. In addition, it is the goal that each child will come to accept Christ as his/her personal Savior and not only continue in studying the Bible, but also live a life that brings honor and glory to Him.
