Our children are a vital part of our church and it is crucial that we minister to and nurture them in such a way that they grow as disciples of Christ in a way that is appropriate to their physical, mental, and spiritual skills.

The following ministries are offered for our children:

Sunday School

We have a Sunday School class for every age group, from the Nursery through Senior Adults, including classes for 2-5 year olds, 1st and 2nd grades, and 3rd through 5th grades.  

Vacation Bible School

Every summer we offer a Vacation Bible School at Mathews.  We offer classes for every age group that includes a Bible lesson, crafts, games, and a light meal.  Our Vacation Bible School (VBS)  will be in the summer during the week of June 16th - June 20th.  Take a moment to read about this wonderful program and take a peek at the photographs taken during last year's event. Photographs were taken by Dale Moseley and are used with permission.

Cub Scouting Program

We are pleased at Mathews to sponsor Cub Scout Pack 905, under the leadership of Chip Snelling and Dale Moseley.  The pack meets the last Tuesday of each month, while the dens (smaller groups within the pack) meet each Tuesday of each month in Scout rooms #101 & 103 at 6:30pm.  If you are interested in helping with our Cub Scout Pack, or have someone of Cub Scout age (7 - 10, or in grades 1st - 5th), please do not hesitate to contact the PACK!

Please note that during the summer months of June, July, and August; that the dens will not meet.  The pack will continue to have its monthly Pack Meetings and a Pack Activity during each of the months.

Kids of the Kingdom

During every Sunday morning worship service, we have a special time for the “Kids of the Kingdom” when all of our children come down to the altar area for a special message just for them.  David Joseph  prepares and presents these messages to our children each week.
