CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

“PLACING THE HEART OF GOD IN THE HEARTS OF CHILDREN”

 

Children hold such a special place in the heart of Jesus and in our hearts here at TVBC.

 
Matthew 19 tells of a day in Jesus’ life when the disciples tried to keep a group of children away from Him, for they thought they would bother Jesus.
 
However, Jesus told them,
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
 
At Tannehill Valley we strive to have
the same spirit toward children that Jesus has …
Open Arms & Hearts
 
One stop at TVBC and you will notice …
We are a church filled with children!
 
 
 
 

 CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

KIDMO

 
KIDMO’s children’s ministry resources are fun, easy to use and require minimal prep time. Using a large group/small group format they work great for Kids Church, Sunday Night, Mid-Week and Sunday School. KIDMO contains strong Bible teaching, high-impact worship, interactive lesson review games, Bible memory challenges, small group breakouts and a comprehensive take home review. The blend of music, animation and live action engages kids and holds their attention. KIDMO currently produces two resources: Johnny Rogers for elementary age, and Lil’ K for preschoolers.
 
 
 
 

MISSION FRIENDS

 

Preschool is an exciting time in a child’s life, where they develop an understanding of who God is and how they play a part in His plan for the world. That’s why we created Mission Friends — to provide preschoolers the building blocks of faith and teach them of God’s love for all people.

Through engaging activities, games and stories each week, Mission Friends will move from a focus on self to a focus on others. This builds a lasting foundation that helps them grow into the next generation of Christ followers who will fulfill His Great Commission.

 
 

ROYAL AMBASSADORS

 
Royal Ambassadors (RA) is an exciting and fun-filled missions education organization for boys in grades 1–6. Through RA, boys gain a greater understanding of God’s work in the world and how they can join Him in His work. RAs learn about the world, pray for the world, and learn how they can be used to tell others about God’s Son, Jesus. An ambassador can be defined as a messenger or representative—someone who tells or reveals truth. RAs seek to share the truth that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
 
 
 
 

GIRLS IN ACTION

 
Girls in Action (GA) is designed to help girls in grades 1 through 6 come to faith in Christ as Savior, while making missions an important part of their daily lives. They learn what it means to live a missional lifestyle while they participate in Bible study, missions projects and engaging activities. They also have a lot of fun and build lasting memories as they “travel” to various places around the world when they learn about the work of missionaries.
 

The Girls in Action motto is “Go Forward!” and GAs do just that — they grow closer to God as they discover their part in His plan and they practice what they’re learning through hands-on missions opportunities. Their experiences lead to a lifelong commitment to Christ, His mission and His church.

 

UPWARD

 

Upward Sports helps church leaders leverage the power of sports to connect with families in their community. Our mission is promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports.

Since 1995, millions of young athletes across the United States have participated in sports programs run by churches using Upward Sports as a strategy to impact their communities.
