Praise Factory (Age 3 - 5th Grade)
The Praise Factory’s name is derived from Psalm 100: a psalm encouraging us to be Manufacturers of noisy joy (v.1) unto the Lord., To Sing (v. 2), To Know (v.3), & To Worship Him with Thanksgiving and Praise (v.4), that the witness of His great faithfulness might continue through all generations (v.5).
Praise Factory is a five year, multi age, children’s systematic theology for kindergarten
through 4th grade. It is comprised of 95 key theological concepts of the faith -- called "Big Ideas"--
divided into 15 units, standard to a systematic theology. These concepts, centering on the Godhead,
the Church and personal holiness, are basic to Christianity.
We cover one Big Idea each month. Each Big Idea has three weeks of stories that reinforce the Big Idea for the month. This program is very visitor friendly and since we cover a Big Idea for a whole month they won’t miss a beat if they start any time throughout the month. We also utilize a bible memory program that is adopted from Capitol Hill Baptist Church, which is the church that the Praise Factory Program is also adopted from. The purpose of the bible memory program is to provide extra bible memory verses for those children that feel that they want to learn more about God.
When the kids reach Middle School, they join our youth group and begin to see how all the stories they have learned fit together into one big redemptive storyline. This storyline shows how God has worked through history to accomplish His plan. The middle school youth work through curriculum such as The Story of A Kingdom, What Jesus Demands From the World by John Piper, and Teach Me Your Way by Children Desiring God ministries. They also study systematically through big portions of Scripture or individual books of the Bible.
The High Schoolers take the Biblical Theology they have learned in their middle school years and begin to see how it relates to the world around them. They begin to study apologetics (defending the faith), hermeneutics (interpreting the Bible correctly), and issues in theology. Our desire is to teach youth to both know and love God.
The youth are exposed to a host of experiences through missions and evangelism youth trips. We like to have our mission trips communicate the same message we teach. We want our youth to learn the joy of serving and loving others. Our trips have included: hurricane Katrina relief, assisting a church planting events, preaching the gospel to families in Brazil, feeding the homeless, ministering to the disabled (Joni and Friends Ministries), aiding Voice of the Martyrs and the persecuted church, and sharing the gospel with our own neighbors at local fairs and events. We long for our youth to be exposed to solid biblical teaching through conferences such as the Give Me An Answer Conference at Southern Seminary and the Legacy Disciple Making Conference in Chicago.
The vision of our Women's Ministry is to seek to obey Christ's Great Commission. We endeavor to do so by encouraging women to worship God through a lifestyle of Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service. It is our desire to achieve a balance between being ministered to and ministering to others. It is our heartfelt belief that as women grow and mature in godliness, they are better equiped to nurture and serve in their families, to enrich the church, and to evangelize their communities.
