Our 4th graders are about to promote to Pier 56 and say "so long" to the Harbor. We want to go out with a splash and celebrate all God has done in their time in The Harbor. Many of them have been in The Harbor for four years and that is a lot of learning God's Word and character, spiritual growth, and fellowship to celebrate!

Turn your kids into Galactic Starveyors! As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders - that the God who created everything there is - the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible - wants a personal relationship with them! Invite your kids into the clubhouse and show them the God who is over the moon in love with them.

Angels and shepherds and…talking sheep? Oh, my!
People everywhere are making the journey to the place of their birth, in compliance with Caesar’s decree that everyone should register for the census. This results in the little town of Bethlehem overflowing with people arriving from out of town. Nathaniel, a lovable but scatter-brained, late-for-work shepherd, bumps into two of those travelers, Joanna and Simone, as he rushes to take his shift at watching the flock. The other shepherds (his sisters Miriam and Abigail), along with Judah, are waiting for Nathaniel—late once again—to arrive. Thus begins a story that is All About That Baby, with some shepherds, angels, “out-of-towners”…and singing, talking sheep to guide us along the way!
The Fall Sunday School Season is approaching! Would you consider volunteering to be a teacher or helper this season? We will train and equip you for the task! Training is Sunday, August 21 @ 4:00pm in Room 212 of the Education Building (childcare available via pre-registration). The session runs from September 4 - May 28. Please prayerfully consider getting involved - you could impact the life of a child for eternity!
Education Building, Room 212
We aim to support the spiritual needs of special needs students and allow family members to attend services, knowing their child is cared for appropriately. We offer a comfortable classroom during the 9am service, where your child can learn about Jesus in the way that suits them best. During the 10:45am service your child can be paired up with a trained "Buddy" and attend a regular class with support, if appropriate.
Please email Jamie Burrow at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

The AWANA Club is a Bible-centered children's/youth ministry for 3yr-olds through 6th grade which meets weekly during the school year. The evening consists of games, devotional time, scripture memorization and handbook work.
The word AWANA stands for "Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed" and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. Each year we are excited to see how God will use AWANA for His glory. All of our workers involved with your children love the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, and it is our sincere desire to help everyone involved to grow in the Lord. The AWANA program is unique in that it helps our children learn about God, exposes them to the Gospel of Christ, helps them hide God's word in their heart, and is a fun and exciting evening.
