CHILDREN’S SUNDAY PROGRAMMES
Here at Tauranga Elim Church we have excellent Children’s Church programmes for your children during our Sunday morning service. The desire of our dedicated leaders is to see our children encounter God each week so that they may know Him and adore Him. This is done through worship, sharing and testimony, hearing bible stories, and praying with each other. We begin our Sunday Services at 10am as FAMILY, which includes all our children in the main auditorium for the opening Worship and Family Time. Children are welcome to bring friends, and we love visitors. After Family Time in the main church children then move out to areas that are age specific. The programmes run for the length of each service. Parents are then required to collect and sign out their children as soon as the service ends and before tea/coffee time.
VOLTAGE (School Years 7 – 8)
Voltage meets every Sunday straight after the Declaration upstairs in the Voltage Room. It’s a place where intermediate aged children can come and hang out, learn about Godly character. We have teaching and question time and then games where they can hang out and connect with each other.
POWERZONE (School Years 1 – 6)
Here in PowerZone we love to connect with your tamariki, to learn who they are and to build relationships with them through games and activities. From these relationships we seek to teach them about God, Who is love, and to learn how to live out our faith in action in our everyday life. We love to teach our tamariki from God’s Word and to praise and worship Him together each week using both music and dance. Our tamariki are taught how to step out and serve using their gifts and talents in their local and global communities, and to look for opportunities to grow in leadership giftings. This is not a babysitting service – it’s leadership development for the future!
POWERPACK (Ages 3-5)
Your children will join in a time of worship with the older PowerZone children then off to their own room for morning tea, singing, crafts, playtime and a great story time based on the theme for the day.
POWERTOTS (Ages 0-2)
Our youngest (0-2 year olds) are loved by a great team of parent leaders and helpers. They are introduced to worship with singing, dancing and playing instruments. Bible stories, playdough, morning tea (water & biscuit) and an abundance of toys ensures your child is comfortable so you can enjoy the service.
