We have two nurseries at JBC. The "infant" nursery is for infants ages birth to 1 year. The "crawler" nursery is for children ages 1-2 years. We have a pager system, age appropriate toys, baby swings, activity seat and high chair as well as at least two experienced child care workers per nursery for Sunday morning service. We also have child care in the baby nursery on Sundays and Wednesday nights for ages 0-2 years.
2-3 Year Olds
They read stories, do crafts, color story sheets, play games and sing songs. They also will give out a small snack during this time. There is a rotation of teachers in both Sunday School and Sunday AM worship who teach and care for these energetic youngsters. This is a transitional class - much more than a nursery - but teaching combined with playtime that prepares them for a more formal Sunday School setting. This age group is combined with the age 4-5 pre-school class on Sunday PM and Wednesday evening. Our teachers are caring and want what is best for your children. Please feel free to introduce yourself to them as they would love to meet you.
4-5 Year Olds
We are traveling through the Bible in chronological order. My age group loves activity, and we act out many of our lessons for greater comprehension. We learn far more by the hands-on, "you are there" approach. The biggest hits are refrigerator and stove boxes used for caves, boats, houses, etc. Some things never change through the years! We periodically work with play dough and games to help learn other stories and truths. I am thankful for the privilege to teach and learn along with these kids. They come up with great questions; and at this age, they are not too timid to ask whatever comes to their minds. Sunday AM, Sunday PM, and Wednesday PM offers a teaching rotation of qualified workers with exciting lessons from the Bible.
Sunday School for grades 1 - 3 is a time for learning about Jesus our Savior. The teaching materials come from Gospel Light. The series is "Prime Time For Your Family." Each week our class starts with a snack and a time to tell about our previous week. We talk about the Bible verse from the previous week and recall how students applied it during the week. Our new class begins with a story and verses from the Bible. After the story, the class works on an Activity page which sometimes involves playing games, exploring art, and creating books. These pages help the students connect the activity to each lesson. Each week Gospel Light Prime Time gives each student a take home pamphlet so parents know the week's lesson. Come join our fun learning about our Savior Jesus Christ!
Our class begins each Sunday morning with a few minutes for the children to chat. During this time homework is collected and the memory verse from the previous week is recited. Points are given for attendance, bringing your Bible, bringing your completed homework, knowing your memory verse and good behavior. Next our class works on memorizing the new memory verse. After copying the verse two times we read a Bible story and discuss what we learned from the story and how to apply the lesson to our lives. Homework is given and then prayer requests are taken. After we pray together class is dismissed.
Grades 7-12 experience practical and interactive Biblical teaching especially addressing the challenges they face. Emphasis is placed upon the importance of developing one's own walk with God and attaining a working knowledge of God's Word.
College and Career
This class is designed for the high school graduates through and past the college graduate. We address the concerns and issues of the young, unmarried adult.
In our class we share the thought "Everyday Christian Living." Each week we are handed a lesson sheet to share & take home following the class after it's over. We have opening prayer as the class begins sharing the needs and blessings of others. The subjects of our lessons vary from week to week and are Bible Centered. This class is located in the small chapel room with comfortable pews and sound system.
This men's class is discussion oriented. The main focus is to develop a personal relationship with God the Father through the work and sacrifice of God the Son, Jesus Christ. We continue to learn how to recognize God's activity personally and collectively as the Holy Spirit reveals and convicts us concerning God's Word and how it applies to us. Each person can express his or her thoughts without fear, and we depend on each other for encouragement, comfort, and help in our Christian walk. The class is made up of growing individuals, intent on experiencing all in life that God intends for them.
This is a class for young couples with children.

New Beginnings Class
The New Beginning's class is unique in many ways. Not only does it claim to be the class closest to the coffee and donuts, but it also is a special topics class. Pastor Jewett simply teaches on the subject or Bible book that the class chooses. A warm welcome awaits you!
