Where can your children experience the joy of music, the fun of play, and the love that comes from a family of faith while becoming friends with children of God from all over the world? ICC of course!
We welcome children of all ages to come and participate in our Children’s ministry. We offer Christian education, which takes place on Sunday mornings, and many opportunities for fun and fellowship throughout the year. At ICC, our friendships are based on faith, and made for a lifetime.
Come grow with us!
Children are always welcome at ICC. We offer a lively Sunday School for children aged 3-12. It takes place at 10:30 am, at the beginning of worship during the school year i.e. August to June. We typically start the Sunday School with praise songs and prayer, before splitting into age relevant groups. We start the main part lesson with a parable or bible reading and a discussion. We then have fun and reinforce learning with either a craft, a game or some other hands on activity, e.g. building a tabernacle or an ark. Children re-join the congregation after the sermon and prayers, in time to join us at the Lord’s Table.
From time to time children bring special things to our worship, especially singing of special songs they’ve prepared. They also help us to celebrate the joy of the Christmas Gospel with a Christmas pageant in December.
In addition a Sunday School class designed for middle school aged youth meets twice a month after church. We enjoy pizza and laughter while we explore the Christian faith on a deeper level.
Crèche / Nursery
For children that are too young to attend Sunday School, ICC offers parents the opportunity to use the crèche / nursery during all regular worship services. We have two experience crèche workers who are present from 10:00 until the end of the service.
Please bring your child’s favorite food and drinks as well your own diaper bag in order to accommodate your child with the items that she/he is most comfortable with.
Mini Youth Group
A fun way for children with ages between 6-12 to get together and play outside of the church setting and learn about God! We meet on the first Saturday of every month between September and June for a couple of hours in the late afternoon (4-7pm). During this time, we share a meal together, do different activities, and have a little devotional. If you are interested in hearing more about this, or if your child would like to join us, please call, send an sms or email to either Sara Henriksen (26271309/ firstname.lastname@example.org) or Emma Cole (41851701/ email@example.com).
Our mini playgroup is for children ages 3-5, and meets once a month between September and June. It can sometimes be tricky for the little ones to make the jump between creche (nursery) and Sunday School, and this allows them a chance to meet the other children in a more playful setting. We do activities together, sing songs from Sunday school, and share a light snack. If you are interested in this group, please contact Bethany.
And when you welcome one of these children because of me, you welcome me. (Matthew 18:5)
