I want to give a shout out to our Preschool kids and leaders who are so faithful to come and teach week after week. We have classes for preschool on Wednesday night and Sunday morning! Many thanks to our teachers: Jennifer Furr, Juanita Miller, Mary Wolfe, Dawn Felts and TC Burchette for your continued faithfulness.

And, to close, on a personal note, July is a special month for me. On the 25th of the month, Pastor David and I will celebrate 34 years of marriage. Im thankful for the days and years we have had together and look forward to many more.

At HomeTown Kids, children are TREASURED!!!!

Their spiritual growth is our top priority.
Their safety is important to us! 
The spirit of childhood is important to us. As teachers and caregivers,  we work hard to help children know that they are loved and accepted just as they are!

Our vision for our children is that they will:
KNOWChrist and understand His love for them
GROWin their spiritual walk
Share the love of Christ with others as they GO

Our mission in teaching and in our classes is this:
We will meet children at their level of development
We will teach children the love of Christ and the joy of His forgiveness and salvation
We will help them learn the truths of God’s word (beyond salvation)
We will encourage their growth within the body of believers as a vital part of the church as a whole. 

Our Sunday School classes include:
Care for babies to age 2
Classes for ages 2 through Grade 6 with age appropriate divisions

On Sunday nights, we have classes for ages 2 through Kindergarten and Grades 1-6.

Wednesday nights, we offer a class for ages 2 through Kindergarten and a high-energy class for Grades 1-6 that we call THE FOCUS where we focus on one Biblical theme per month. 

Our theme verse for Hometown Kids is:
He shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Psalm 1:3

This is our prayer for our children….that they would be well-watered trees, yielding spiritual fruit and staying strong in their walk with the Lord long past the time they are under the guidance of our ministry.
