Vacation Bible Experience

In the summer time, we have our Vacation Bible Experience where we submerge into a fun theme to for an entire week to learn Bible lessons, explore new places, foods, and people as we sing songs, make crafts, and enjoy fellowship and fun. Please join us here at Maranatha where we believe in our children.
This year’s theme is Concrete & Cranes - Building on the Love of Jesus. Click here for the promotional video! https://www.adventistvbs.org/
Maranatha Children’s Ministries, also known as Marantha Kids, is a fun and interactive ministry for children birth to 13 years of age. The mission of Marantha Kids is to help kids foster and deepen their relationship with God and love for one another by nurturing their mind, body, and spirit. Our vision is that we see ourselves becoming a family of believers, transformed by the presence of Jesus to change this world.

Family


Maranatha Kids is supported by a dedicated team of adult and youth volunteers who love and embrace each child as if they were their own.

Children's Church

Children’s Church is available for children 5-13 years and  takes place every week in the Fellowship Hall and Sabbath School Classrooms. This service allows the children the opportunity to worship in a manner in which they can understand and participate. Children’s Church is divided into 4 quarters, with a theme for each quarter. A typical service includes praise and worship, prayer, offering, a spotlight on the theme for the quarter, bible lesson, arts and crafts, and a light snack.

We also have Wee Church for ages 0-4 years every week. Wee Church follows a similar format as Children’s Church.

Sabbath School

Sabbath School begins every Saturday at 9:45-10:30pm. Children have an opportunity to learn in age appropriate classrooms, bible stories, memory verses and songs that talk about the love of Christ and how to be kind to others. Classes are as follows:

Cradle Roll (birth to 3 years)
Kindergarten (4-5 years)
Primary (6-9)
Juniors/Teens (10-13 years)
Youth (14-19 years)

Spiritual Life Lesson

We are pleased to teach our children spiritual principles such as tithing, cooking, and money management in ways that are fun and practical.

Safety is Key

All children who participate in Children’s Church are checked in via our KidsCheck system. This system allows volunteers to know how many children are participating in Children’s Church at any given time, by age, as well as be aware of children who may have allergies or other special needs, and offers a convenient manner for us to contact parents via text message if we should need them. All children must be checked in by a parent or guardian. Download the app for faster and convenient check in!

Weekly Schedule

1st and 3rd Sabbath, Children’s Church starts at 11am until the end of Divine Worship Service
2nd and 4th Sabbath, Children’s Church starts immediately after Children’s Story. This allows children and their parents the opportunity to worship together in the Sanctuary for a portion of the service before they participate in Children’s Church. Children’s Church ends at the end of the Divine Worship Service.
5th Sabbath, Children’s Church will support Youth Day by joining the Divine Worship Service in the Sanctuary.

Children's Choir

The Children’s Choir sings every second Sabbath during the Divine Worship Service. The children practice during Children’s Church on a weekly basis. We also provide a link to the selected songs to parents so that children can become familiar with and practice the songs at home.

Other Fun Activities

Throughout the year, Marantha Kids will sponsor fun-filled activities for children and their families. Please check out the MIX (Maranatha Information Exchange) for up to date information about our activities and events.

Children's Story

Children’s Story takes place every 2nd and 4th Sabbath during the Divine Worship Service. During this time, the children are told a story with a moral for them to ponder. Children’s Church immediately follows Children’s Story.

Baby and Child Dedication

Having your child dedicated to the Lord, is one of the most important things you can do as a parent. If you are interested in having your child dedicated, please send an email to childrensministry@maranthasda.com and include the following information:

It’s never to early or too late to have your child dedicated to the Lord.

Wholistic Approach 

Being well-rounded is essential for everyone. We are pleased to provide you, our parents, with this valuable tool. It can be incorporated into your children's lives to help them experience spiritual, mental, and physical growth.
