SlimeTIme

SlimeTime is our Wednesday Evening Curriculum for our Kid's Ministry to help them grow closer to God.

SlimeTime was written to not only include scripture memory but also engage then change the heart of each child that attends.
The goals of SlimeTime are:
  • That each child will be able to use their Bible confidently in life for daily use and to face any challenge. 
  • That each child will be able to apply verses and learn how to lean on the word of God to navigate this world.
  • That each child will build relationship with their small group leader and other kids seeking God.
  • Each child gets to experience a hands on experience that will helps kids “stick the word in their heads and hide it in their hearts”. The activity centers are set up to engage kids in all 5 senses to learn application of God’s word.
  • To use Circle small groups like Jesus did as He had a group that followed him around through activity centers, small group time, and whole group time.  His goal was to make sure that they could DO what He did,and not simply know what He knew. 
  • Follow Jesus’ example of Luke 2:52, we see that the young Jesus grew physically but also in wisdom.  Helping the kids increase in wisdom is the goal of SLIME TIME —applying biblical truths to make godly decisions in their daily life.  Bible knowledge is the foundation for confidently living a Christ-following life.  All kids need to grow into the basic knowledge of the Bible.  But wisdom is the application of the knowledge we possess.   This is the ultimate goal of every Slimetime activity.  Wisdom doesn’t ask “what do you know?“  It asks “What do you do with what you know?”
  • Slime and other fun fun games will build an excitement to bring other kids, especially non churched kids to church and model true evangelism in each child’s life by inviting others.
  • And last goal, to engage the family to learn how to model and teach these spiritual disciplines at home in an easy and accessible way that will last in their homes.

In our history, God has used tactile experiences like meals, holiday celebrations, the craftsmanship of the Tabernacle and Temple, songs, rituals, and dances to teach His people who he is and what He has done,  God knew that these would drive home His point home better than just simple storytelling in the oral tradition alone.  Jesus used parables and teaching with everyday objects to relate His teachings to everyday life experiences.  Educational research also confirms God’s method of actively engaging children with all 5 senses is what works best to change hearts and minds and engage learning.  We want to make Bible truths real by involving kids deeper in application and finding creative ways to immerse them in God’s truths.

The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 3:7 that although we may have the privilege of being used by the God to plant seeds and water them, it is God who brings about growth.  Only the Holy Spirit can truly transform a heart.  Please pray for our kids and our wonderful leaders and ask God to work in the hearts of our kids and leaders to draw them to Himself.  We need your prayers!!

Every year in December our kid's department puts on a Christmas Drama.
