Club 252

I have the privilege of working with the 4th & 5th graders at our church each week in Club 252.  I have been serving in this department for over 10 years now.  I feel this age is very important as far as keeping them engaged and wanting to come to church.

I have a great team of table leaders that work with specific groups of kids each week.  They all enjoy the kids and love to share God with them each Sunday. 

We have a great curriculum to work with each week. 
  • The kids start out the morning at their tables with a leader and do an activity related to the story or theme of the day. 
  • Then we move to large group for story, worship, and fun!   Our story team is awesome and the get the kids so excited. 
  •  Recently, there has been teams of praise kids added for worship time. Each week there is another team comes in to lead us in worship. The kids are doing great and they are excited to sing about God each week. 
  • Sometimes we end up with a video clip to wrap up or a skit
  • The kids then return back to their tables to do an activity to bring the whole morning together

Once a month I run a Bible drill with verse relating to the theme of the month.  I feel this is important to teach kids how to find verses in their Bibles. They have fun racing to find the verse and of course, there is a piece of candy for the winners!

Each month the kids are taught a virtue, they have a memory verse, and a bottom line every week to reinforce the virtue.

April :
Virtue - Humility
                       Putting others first by giving up what you think you deserve.
Memory Verse :
"Don’t do anything only to get ahead. Don’t do it because you are proud. Instead, be free of pride. Think of others as better than yourselves." Philippians 2:3,

Story for large group time:

Feet First (Jesus washes the disciples’ feet) • John 13:1-17

Bottom Line:(Week 1)

I can put others first by serving them.

  1. Nanette, so important to teach God's Word to our kids -- how to find verses as well as keeping God's Word in their hearts. I teach nursery Sunday School, and we start instilling a love for God's Word in them early by singing the B-I-B-L-E every week and talking about our verse.

    Continued blessings as you work with the kids!
