Larry and Cathy Lawrence, along with a great Team of volunteers, oversee the Children’s Ministry here at Encounter Church. “E Kids” consists of Creation Place (Infants – 36 months), Celebration Station (3 year olds – K5), Super Kids (Grades 1-5); On Wednesday nights we have M-Pact for Grades 1-6 girls, and Royal Rangers for Grades 1-5 boys.

Each of our environments for children are staffed by trained leaders and caregivers. All have been carefully screened and are dedicated to providing a fun, safe place for your children. The Word of God is presented to children on their age-level in a fun, active way that kids love.

Larry and Cathy have been have been in full-time ministry for 33 years, and met in Fort Worth, TX, where they both graduated from Southwestern Baptist Seminary, and led Bible Clubs and activities for children. They live in Boiling Springs, SC and have two sons, Jordan and Christopher.

aREAS OF MINISTRY

(Infants-36 months) meets during all scheduled services. Children in this group are divided into Infants (Birth—12 months),Toddlers (13-24 months) and Twos (24-36 months). Children are taught the  Word of God, and ministered to by trained Caregivers in a warm, loving environment. As in all our groups, your child’s safety and well-being are our number one concern!
Super Kids is our Sunday morning environment for kids in Grades 1-5. Children check-in, then jump into energetic praise and worship, giving time, an illustrated sermon, scripture memory, skits, puppet plays, and off-the-wall review games. Children are securely returned to parents with an espresso coffee and a new puppy! (Just kidding!)
Ministry to Preschoolers, ages 3—K5. Sunday Morning Celebration Station consists of two parts—Classroom time and Assembly time. In the Classroom, children enjoy learning activities, free play and a snack. In Assembly time, they experience praise and worship, scripture memory, an exciting Bible lesson, and loads of fun, all with the help of some
special characters! Wednesday night Celebration Station meets at 7;00 pm, and is a fun-filled class involving a Bible lesson, learning activity, music, snacks and active play. In all our children’s groups, your child’s safety and well-being are of highest priority.
