Children and Family Ministry

 
Children and Family Ministry is not just a program at Armstrong Chapel; it's the heartbeat of our community, a beacon of hope, and a foundation of faith for the next generation. We are passionately committed to nurturing the spiritual growth of our children and fostering a sense of belonging and love within our families.
 
Our mission is to provide enriching and inspiring study; founded in God's word and fellowship opportunities that resonate with the unique needs of every age group.  We believe in the transformative power of community and the profound impact it has on the lives of our children. Together, we are building a legacy of faith, one child, one family, and one heart at a time. 
 

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

help grow the faith of your child.

 
 

 

It's almost time to dive into this year's VBS...

 
We have over 140 wonderful kids signed up and want to ensure they have a wonderful experience here at ArmstrongKids.
Part of that is creating a fun, inviting space. 

That's where you come in!

 
We need your help to create and set up for this fantastic week. Please take a look at the slots available to come in and help with VBS prep and see where you can plug in.

There is a space for everyone! From collating needed materials to painting and crafting set design, there is a place for you to plug in.

Thanks in advance for your help in bringing a wonderful experience to the kids in our community!

9:30 AM SUNDAY MORNINGS

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.

2024 Vacation Bible School

 
At Scuba, kids explore what it means to have a friendship with God! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out sciency-fun experiments that get imagination bubbling. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Fin-tastic Finale that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.
 

July 15 - 18

Registration Closed

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!

CREATING A LIFETIME PARTNERSHIP FOR CHANGE!

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.
