Children’s Ministry

We want to serve the community in the name of Jesus Christ by providing the highest quality Christian education in a setting which nurtures the spiritual, mental, social and physical well-being of each child. We believe there is nothing more important than teaching children how to know God intimately, love Him passionately, and serve Him selflessly. We have Sunday School classes for all ages at 9:45 each Sunday morning and a Nursery and Children’s Church for Sunday AM services.

In addition, we offer a “Trunk of Treats” during our Fall Festival in October, Vacation Bible School in July, Children’s Church focus during our Sunday morning services, Easter Egg Hunt, Breakfast with Santa, and Moonwalk play areas for churchwide events throughout the year. We have a full playground in the center of our walking trail behind the church.

Awana Program

 “Our goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him.” We meet Sundays @ 6 PM.

AWANA is an international children’s program designed to disciple children in God’s Word. The AWANA name comes from the Bible in 2 Timothy 2:15, which says: “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.

 The 2017 – 2018 AWANA year runs on Sunday nights with the school calendar. Meeting times are each Sunday, 6 PM – 7:30 PM. Parents are encouraged to stay for the Evening Bible Study and Worship from 6:30-7:30. They will get out in time to pick up their children.

Registration and Pick Up –  All clubbers must be brought and picked up by parents or an authorized adult at the start and end of the club meeting. Clubbers will not be released to the care of friends or minor-aged siblings. Please do not drop off children by themselves.

 

Women’s Ministry: “God’s Love Ministry”

The women of the Storehouse are organized to provide ministry for our church and community as needed. They have adopted Hening Elementary School to pray for and offer help as requested. Several times a year they take homemade treats to the Teachers’ Lounge and send seasonal prayer cards to the teachers and staff. We offer to purchase coats and shoes for those children needing them, and we volunteer to help in the school office when needed.

The Magnolias Home for Memory Impaired is another area of ministry where the ladies and men, along with our children, conduct parties and Vacation Bible School. Once a month, designated as “Cracker Wednesday” our people take peanut butter crackers to give to all the residents.

We send cards and provide flowers for the sick. Meals are prepared during bereavement times and times of celebration as a ministry to our church family. In return, the church celebrates an annual Ladies’ Day with the men providing breakfast for the ladies before a special service to honor our ladies. In return, the ladies prepare breakfast on Men’s Day.

 

Men’s Ministry: “Kingdom Builders”

The men of the Storehouse meet each Sunday to pray with the Pastor before the service. They prepare breakfast on Ladies’ Day and do the cooking for cookouts at our Pavilion.  They have an annual bake-off or chili cook-off for the church. They sponsor community-wide visitation events during the year.

The Deacon Family Ministry divides the entire membership into manageable units to visit, console, pray for, and encourage our fellowship.

 

Prayer Ministry

Our Prayer Chain, headed by Janie Lovorn and assisted by the Deacon Fellowship, coordinates urgent prayer concerns to be called to the membership for prayer. They also phone the membership for special announcements or reminders.

 

Bus Ministry

We have purchased a bus for church functions and transportation to our events. We hope soon to be visiting our community to offer a bus ministry. In the meantime please call 804-743-7425 if you need transportation. 

 

Community Ministries

We provide a quarter mile walking trail and playgound on our property with a covered pavilion for lunches and cookouts. Each year special events are offered such as a Community Health Fair with free screenings and free school supplies for Hening teachers. We have hosted free yard sales with surplus merchandise given away on a first-come basis. We prayer walk our community and offer free Bibles to those requesting them. Petting zoos and carnivals are hosted from time to time along with local singing groups.
