Here is everything the CREW (ages 6-10) needs to know!
This page was designed to give the kids a place to come online and access everything they need to make the most of every opportunity in our classroom! It has everything from our monthly memory verses to special ways to earn extra tickets!
CREW Kids Ministries
We call ourselves a CREW because it is so important for kids to understand that going through life alone isn't good for anyone! We will always have a need for God and for each other! We function under the premise found in Psalm 133:1 -
"How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in peace!"
How to be an excellent member of the CREW
Follow the Rules
We have basic rules that everyone needs to follow for safety and to respect everyone around us. These rules apply outside of the classroom too! To be a member of the CREW you need to be respectful of others around you!
Play Nice with Others
Our Group verse is Psalm 133:1
"How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!"
That means playing nice with the other members of the CREW!
Rack up the points
By bringing your Bible, offering, memorizing scripture, even just for showing up, you earn points to turn in for cool prizes!
Part of being a member of the CREW is working hard for cool rewards!
The purpose of the CREW is to help make amazing human beings. As long as you are a part of the CREW, there is a standard to meet! As long as you follow the rules and have fun? You meet the standard!
To be a part of the CREW, you have to be AWESOME just how God made you!
What you need to know!
The Memory Verses for the month of March are:
6 yr olds - Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
7 years old - Luke 16:13 "No one can serve two masters at the same time. Either you will hate one of them and love the other. Or you will be faithful to one and dislike the other. You can’t serve God and money at the same time."
8 years old - Psalm 37:4-5 "Find your delight in the Lord. Then he will give you everything your heart really wants. Commit your life to the Lord. Here is what he will do if you trust in him."
9 years old - 1 Timothy 4:12 "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and in how you live. Also set an example in how you love and in what you believe. Show the believers how to be pure."
2 Timothy 2:15 "Do your best to please God. Be a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed. Teach the message of truth correctly."
10 years old - Lamentations 3:22-23 "The Lord loves us very much. So we haven’t been completely destroyed. His loving concern never fails. His great love is new every morning. Lord, how faithful you are!"
Psalm 90:17 "May the Lord our God always be pleased with us. Lord, make what we do succeed. Please make what we do succeed."
This year we are sponsoring.... Scott and Sarah Berkey!
Project: Build children's church structures!
Kenya is home to over 53 MILLION people!
The Capitol is called Nairobi and that is where the Berkey family lives!
85.5% of the people claim to be Christians! Praise the Lord! But 11% claim that our God isn't real and follow the Muslim faith. A little less than 4% of the Kenyan people believe in other false gods or no gods at all! So there is still work to be done!
Kenya is a country in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean. It encompasses savannah, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. It's also home to wildlife like lions, elephants and rhinos. From Nairobi, the capital, safaris visit the Maasai Mara Reserve, known for its annual wildebeest migrations, and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Tanzania's 5,895m Mt. Kilimanjaro!
This is our Youtube playlist of praise and worship songs we do with the CREW!
How to Earn Tickets?
Just by showing up and being a part of the class you earn ONE ticket per service!
You don't have to do anything to earn it except be there!
Possible every service
Every week there are a few easy ways to earn tickets. By bringing your Bible you earn 1 ticket every time. By bringing tithes and offering you earn another point!
Not as often
We sometimes give out extra points for special things, like going above and beyond to help, birthdays, incredible participation etc.
Also, we have a monthly memory verse that you can memorize for an extra TEN tickets. We study these verses on Wednesday nights!
Down to 'nuthin
We do have classroom rules, meaning that if you break the rules, are mean to others, throw fits, etc. You can LOSE tickets. If you go down to zero, there is a possibility of going into the negative, meaning you need to earn tickets just to get back to zero. We don't like to do this, so if everyone is respectful, you don't need to worry about this ever happening to you
CREW Summer Challenge
Lost your Summer Challenge paper? No worries! You can print a new one and access the digital copy right here!
Are you looking for EXTRA ways to earn tickets? Do you want to challenge yourself to hide God's Word in your heart? Here are some extra ways to do this!
Learn the memory verses at WHATEVER level you want to start with and then talk to Pastor Dominique! If you aren't sure where to begin, there are recommended ages for specific levels. But if you want to start small and work your way up you are welcome to!
Also, another way to earn EXTRA tickets is by completing a Bible reading plan! There are three levels of difficulty there as well! For our younger students we ask that they begin with just the Psalms and Gospels, our middle group is reading all of the major Bible stories in one year! But for our oldest kiddos, the real challenge is to read the entire Bible in one year!
