Revved Up Children’s Ministry

A place for children to build strong connections to God, their family, and the church.

Teays Valley Church of God’s mission is to connect our community to Christ. The children’s ministry at TVCOG desires to connect the kids of the community to Christ, as well. All kids, Birth to 5th Grade, have a place in Revved Up. Our desire at Revved Up is create an environment where children can connect to God, their families, and the community.

Children Worship Opportunities

During First Service, 9 a.m., on Sunday Mornings, elementary students have a large group/small group learning opportunity. Elementary students begin in our adult service and will be released right before the service. Preschool and Nursery Children’s Church is also provided.

During Second Service, 10:45 a.m., on Sunday Mornings, elementary students experience a traditional children’s church time with music, story, activity, and games. Preschool and Nursery Children’s Church is also provided.

Wednesday Nights offers an opportunity for preschool and elementary students to experience Bible learning in a relaxed environment. The students experience games and activities with a Bible Focus!

Weekly Offering

Revved Up Children’s Ministry takes a weekly offering in the Sunday Morning and Wednesday Night services. This money is used for various ministries throughout the year. We feel that students’ offering should be their contribution so we encourage parents to provide opportunities for their students to earn money.

Children Praying

We believe Children’s prayers are important. In both, Sunday morning and Wednesday night services, we provide opportunities for students to tell us their prayer requests and pray for those requests.

Singing Opportunities

It is important for children to learn to worship God at an early age; we encourage our kids to worship God through song by providing a monthly singing opportunity for the preschool and elementary students.  We also have an annual Christmas musical for elementary students.

Communion

On the first Sunday of the month, Revved Up Children’s Ministry has a special communion service. Receiving the communion elements is an inclusive act for the Body of Christ. This monthly time is an opportunity for students to hear the salvation message and make the choice to live for Christ. If you prefer your child not receive the communion elements, simply let a Revved Up volunteer know.

Special Events

Revved Up Children’s Ministry hosts several special events throughout the year; including the Easter egg hunt, children’s camp, VBS, Family Fun Day, and Trunk or Treat, to name a few!
