VBS & CentriKid Camp
Each summer, we will have a week-long Vacation Bible School. Kids 4 yrs. old through 5th grade are invited to learn about God in a fun, interactive environment. From 9 a.m. – noon each day, teachers engage kids in Bible study, games, Bible truths and worship. The week culminates with a musical presentation and carnival for the whole family on Friday evening.
CentriKid is an overnight camp for 3rd–5th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ!
Sundays @ 5:30 p.m.
Choirs are offered for children, ages 4 yrs. through 5th grade.
The choirs learn about worship and prepare special presentations for the Christmas season and in the Spring.

AWANA meets on Wednesdays @ 6:15 pm during the school year.

Preschool/ Children's Security System
Porter uses a security check-in system for our preschool and elementary ministries on Sundays. Preschoolers are signed in by parents/guardians and receive a numbered card. Elementary schoolers (grades 1-5) wear numbered security labels which are filled out by parents or guardians when they arrive at church on Sunday mornings.
