Moose Mountain

Moose Mountain is a place for children from 1st grade to 5th grade to have a fun time with age appropriate large group lessons, praise and worship, and a small group time with their wonderful teachers where they can discuss what they learned in large group, play fun games to reinforce what the children are learning, all while making long lasting friendship with others who are learning the same lesson they are.

  • Opening activities: Group leaders facilitate an opening game or activity designed to break the ice and review previous week's lesson.
  • Large group: Elementary classes assemble together at the Moose Mountain Lodge for a lively and energetic time of worship, drama, and Bible lesson—engaging their minds and bodies.
  • Small group: Children return to classes for an in-depth exploration of Bible lesson. Each month’s lesson revolves around one key Bible verse and theme.

The curriculum is based on God’s word teaches about how to approach life’s every day situation. The lessons taught are also what the parents are learning in “big” church, which opens up great discussions with parents and children on what they are learning. This gives families time together for open conversation about what the Bible says about Jesus and real life situations. 

Incentive Program:

We have a wonderful incentive program that encourages the children to memorize God’s word. How does it work? The children are given “take home cards” that has a scripture to memorize. They then come back the following weekend with the card, signed by parents and recite the scripture to their teachers. They will receive a bead to add to their necklace. After they have memorized five verses they receive a sticker card, which is placed on the board. Once they receive four stickers they get a prize bag, they continue learning more verses and adding more beads and stickers to their card and receive prize bags as they earn four more stickers. The prizes get better in every prize bag! 

Check In and Check Out
Children are checked in at the computer kiosk where you'll receive an identification sticker. When picking up your child, simply show the parent pick-up tag that corresponds with your child's name tag.
