Children and Family Ministry

Children and Family Ministry is a vital part of Armstrong Chapel.
We aim to provide quality study and fellowship opportunities in age-appropriate groups
including graded and small-group Sunday School for children.

Our goal is to work alongside your family, to equip you to

help grow the faith of your child.

These programs are made possible by the direction of Dianna Sheely
and all her member volunteers.

ArmstrongKids' Kick Off

to the Holidays with...


What a bright time, it’s the right time...for a “Christmas Bash” on December 8! 

Stop by our Atrium to start the Christmas Season off right! 

"Experience" A Christmas to Remember, this event is all about sharing the joy and warmth of the holiday season with those you love and reflecting on the memories of Christmas past presented by ArmstrongKids along with our Boys and Girls Youth Group.

Doors will open at 6:00 pm

where you will be able to walk through our “Memories of Christmas” art display, interact with a live nativity scene, and grab a Christmas treat before heading into our Gingerbread Bash from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.  
It’s a gingerbread nativity building party designed for the whole family.
In addition to building and decorating your own gingerbread nativity, you’ll get to play games, sing songs, hear the Christmas story from the Bible, and discover the good news of Jesus.

It’s a truly sweet way for your family to celebrate the birth of our Savior!  





At ArmstrongKids we have made the choice to LEAD SMALL!

We want the next generation to have a really BIG faith – an authentic, everyday kind of faith. 
When we lead small … we realize that what we do for a few will always have more potential than what we do for many. 
So, we have made the decision to offer SMALL GROUPS on Sunday mornings where kids can connect better with their leaders. 
When we lead small… we make a choice to invest strategically in the lives of your kids over time so
that we can partner with you to help them build an authentic faith. 

Check-in at the Children’s Desk
You will be directed to the small group specifically designed for your child or
to the main sanctuary for the Children's Moments. 
  • Preschool Ages 2-5 years old
  • Elementary Small Groups for K/1st grade and 2nd/3rd  grade  
  • FaithClimbers 4th through 6th Grade — Room 205

Children Moments is led by Dianna Sheely

in the Sanctuary during the Traditional Worship Service at 9:40 am

 During this service, we will continue to offer ArmstrongKids programming for children from infants through Kindergarten. 
Children in 1st grade and up are invited to attend this family-friendly service.  


Share with us every Sunday from 10:45 until 11:30 a.m. in the Children's Center for our ArmstrongKids program, Growing in God’s Grace!
We will be doing crafts and learning songs that teach us about God’s love for us. Each week we will complete a lesson about what it means to live in God’s grace and treat others gracefully ourselves. Our focus is to help kids have a fun, creative, welcoming experience at church that will build a foundation for them to know the love of God for the rest of their lives.

We can’t wait to see you!

If you are in the 4th, 5th, and 6th this

Tween's Group was created just for YOU!

We are excited to offer several opportunities throughout the year for you to serve others, enjoy each other, and grow in the Lord.
This age is often called ‘tweens’ because they are a little old for children’s ministry but not quite ready for youth groups.  

This group really digs into the Bible and is capable of serving others in many ways. 
 We meet in Room 205 on Sunday!

In 2005, Armstrong Chapel established Whiz Kids tutoring at John P. Parker Elementary.
In 2018-2019 the program transitioned into our own tutoring program, Parker Kids Club!  
This past year we were able to get back into the building and work 1:1 with 15 students at John P. Parker Elementary in Madisonville. 
Each student had an individualized plan to help them meet their specific needs.  With our collaboration with the school, we were able to see a significant increase in skills for each of the kids we worked with.  Plus, watch some amazing relationships build between kids and their tutors.  
Parker Kids Club is on Tuesdays this school year.  The program will run in its entirety from 2:30-4:30 pm with the first hours offering either an Enrichment Club or Chess Club (students’ choice), followed by 1:1 tutoring at 3:30 pm for an hour.  The program is currently planned to begin in October.

Can you commit to helping us make a difference

in the lives of these kids? 

We are currently recruiting tutors for the upcoming 2023-24 school year! 


One hour really does make a difference!  If you have any questions, please contact Dianna Sheely.
