POA loves babies – and our kids! Age-appropriate programs designed to nurture our children and help them achieve their full potential as followers of Christ define POA’s Children’s Ministry. It is divided into two major age-specific categories: Wonderland is our nursery/childcare for children from 6-weeks to 3 years of age. POA Kids is our Sunday School and Wednesday night ministry for children ages 4-12.
Wonderland is a two-fold ministry. Our Wonderland staff, often themselves fathers and mothers of Wonderland age children, care for our infants and toddlers during regular service times on Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evenings. (Childcare is sometimes provided during other special events as well.) We feel that we are not only responsible for caring and nurturing for these wee ones, but we are also a part of ministering to the parents who are able to participate and enjoy service without the distraction of caring for their young child/children.
We want our POA KIDS to know God and to grow in God. POA KIDS, under the leadership of John and Amber Eskew, employs a comprehensive program focusing on teaching and reinforcing simple Biblical principles. Ideas are presented in kid-friendly ways and in a kid-friendly environment. This combination makes the lessons easy to understand and to remember. You will be delighted at what transpires when the Word of God is sown into the lives of your POA Kids.
Sunday School classes lead students to Christ, equipping them with knowledge of the Bible so they can live abundant, overcoming lives and become effective witnesses for Christ.
