Passing on the Love and Joy of the Lord to Children

Through Bible lessons, related activities, and prayer experiences, the children come to know and trust in Jesus while learning of the role and power of the Holy Spirit in their faith.

The program offers your children spiritual building blocks that will last a lifetime.

For Children Entering Elementary Grades K-5 in Fall, 2018

Children’s Program includes:

  • Bible Teaching
  • Live Music
  • Skits
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Games
  • Prayer Experience
  • Loads of fun for all elementary grade levels!

“Let the children come to me and do not hinder them.  It is to just such as these that the Kingdom of God belongs.” Mark 10: 13-16

Children are precious gifts.  As we read the words of Jesus, “Let them come to me….”.
The goal of the SCRC Children’s Program is to teach children that they are indeed “wonderfully made” by the hand of God and that Jesus is waiting for them with open arms.

In our two day program, through various fun and vibrant themes, the children learn about God’s abundant love for them, who Jesus is and how they can relate to him personally, how to pray, and ways to live out their faith.

Through awesome music and energetic praise, Bible teaching, engaging craft activities, meaningful games, and prayerful experiences, kids learn to get in touch with Our Loving God in a memorable way they can relate to on their level.

The program is coordinated by an experienced team of volunteers that has been involved in children’s ministry for over 15 years.  They are very gifted in their ministry work and have continued to effectively touch the hearts of the children with the welcoming embrace of God.

Comments continue to rave about this wonderful program….we often hear parents say “My kids can’t wait until next year!”  or “They don’t want to leave!” 

Year after year, we also hear from teens, young adults and young parents who share that they first started coming to the SCRC Convention when they were young and began attending the children’s program.  They tell us that it made a huge impression on their lives and helped to shape their spirituality into the solid Catholic faith that they have today.

For a 2-day event of this type, it is worth every penny.  What is more valuable than the happiness of your child?  And we know there is only one true way to happiness….in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen!

Registered children may attend Friday Arena talks with parents or adult chaperone with no additional cost.
