Monday Afternoons

During Lent (the season before Easter) and Advent (the season before Christmas), we provide special ministries to help kids understand and experience these special seasons of the Church year. For more information on these events, please call contact the staff.

Cross Over to Easter After School Program – 1pm-2:30pm

Youth in costume for seasonal pagentChildren are invited to participate in Cross Over to Easter After School ministry during Lent. Cross Over invites children to explore the story of Easter in depth. In the weeks before Easter, kids will spend an hour and a half learning the Easter story in fun hands-on ways. They will learn about Jesus’ ministry on Earth and discover what the characters in the Easter story teach us about God.

Journey to Bethlehem After School – 1pm-2:30pm

During Advent children are invited to “Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem—for Children” Based on Rev. Adam Hamilton’s bestselling books, this special interactive after-school opportunity invites children to explore the story of Jesus’ birth with fresh eyes and ears. Over the weeks before Christmas, kids are invited to spend an hour and a half to learn about the Christmas story in fun hands on ways. They will experience the culture of ancient Bethlehem and discover what each character in the story teaches us about God.

Club 45 Wednesday Nights 6:30pm-7:30pm

4th and 5th graders – Rm 211

Club 45 is designed to help bridge the gap between children’s ministry and youth ministry by offering a specifically designed ministry to meet the distinctive needs of preteens. Following Café de Sol dinners, Club 45ers have this time to strengthen social, physical and leadership skills as we spend time playing together and working on service projects after a hard day of school.

Child reading Bible

Learning to Use My Bible Class

3rd Graders – Fall Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm

Each year Embry Hills presents Bibles to our 3rd graders and because we don’t want these Bibles to be dust collectors on a bookshelf, we offer a fun and exciting time where children actually learn to use their Bible.
