A FRIENDLY REMINDER


We ask that you follow the basic COVID-19 prevention protocols of wearing a mask whenever inside the building, washing your hands often, staying socially-distanced, not attending if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, have been exposed and you don't know your status, or have been diagnosed as positive within the last 14 days.

There are some alterations being made to traffic flow inside the building and normal operations in order for us to continue to gather safely as we welcome groups back to campus. Please read below and feel free to contact us at 757-461-3226 or email us with any questions.

We want learning about God to be fun and exciting! We welcome children, grades 1-5, to join us in a grade level Zoom LIFEgroup where they will:

  • Be led by friendly, nurturing, and encouraging leaders;
  • Learn, through Bible study, how to apply God’s word into their lives;
  • Grow a loving and lasting relationship with Jesus;
  • Create friendships with others.

It is our desire to share God’s love with every child to a point where they will choose to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

Email Julie Hunt to get your child into one of these groups.



UPCOMING EVENTS


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

June 2021

Look up—way up. That’s where we’re headed. Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery. Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky. These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built. Yet they all began the same way—with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly, a solid foundation. This summer, kids will grab their hard hats and head out to the construction site to discover that skyscrapers aren’t the only things that need a rock solid foundation.

During VBS, kids will discover that Jesus’ love provides a foundation that will last. When the storms of life come, they’ll need the One who will be with them to the end of the age. When anxiety sets in, they’ll need the assurance that true worth comes from being a child of God, not from what other people think about them. When they feel unworthy, they can remember that Jesus loved them enough to die for them. They’ll learn to be wise builders who continue in what they’ve learned and firmly believe. And they will discover that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion. We’re all a work in progress. Life is a hard hat zone. But just wait ‘til you see what God will do! If you have questions, please contact the Children's Ministry at children@firstnorfolk.org or 757-300-2476
