Pre-School to 5th Grade

Vacation Bible School 2024

Vacation Bible School has been a part of our church family life for a number years. Over the past nine years, Crete Church has hosted thousands of children who have attended this one-week program where they learn the good news of the gospel. Each year, volunteers devote a week of their year to serve these children and their families as small group leaders, game leaders, and craft and snack-time assistants. While this week is packed with fun crafts, music, games, and skits, our desire as a church is to teach children from a young age their need for a Savior. This year our Camp Firelight theme invites children on an exciting journey where they learn to trust God no matter what situation life brings, know God is always with them, and feel confident in sharing the good news of God's love through Jesus Christ.


Covenant Kids Sunday School & Children's Ministry

The purpose of Covenant Kids Ministry is to introduce, teach, and encourage the biblical education of our children from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. We communicate the gospel through formal and informal opportunities. Our methods allow us to help children strengthen and build their faith and their relationship with our Lord Jesus, so that they may be able to share the Light of Jesus Christ with others.

Covenant Kids Sunday School takes place after fellowship time every Sunday for one hour, September – May, unless otherwise noted. We begin with a beautiful Gathering Time which consists of worship, prayer and scripture memory. Then, we split up into grade levels, growing in God and learning HIS Word, following Biblically sound curriculum with the guidance of our dynamic teachers!

Please join us at the Children’s Ministries Registration Counter located in the South Foyer Nursery area to register your children for our Sunday morning activities in the Nursery and/or our Covenant Kids Sunday School Program.


The nursery is always available for Sunday services and during continuing education classes. We also have nursery availability for various other Crete Church events. Our secure Children's Area contains two nurseries as well as the Children's Worship and Pre-K Sunday School rooms.

More About GEMS


Cadet Club is an integral and fundamental ministry of Crete Church that aims to effectively share Christ's love with boys from within the church and the community. As a covenant Christian group working together with church and home, we commit to helping boys grow more Christlike in all areas of life.
Boys learn the knowledge and skills of being a Christian man through building, doing, studying, and playing.
The Cadets ministry is for boys grades 2-8. We meet most 1st and 3rd Wednesdays 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (with family dinner served 5:30 p.m - 6:00 p.m.) from mid-September through the beginning of May. You don't have to be a member of Crete Church to participate, so bring a friend!
