JAM, an acrostic for Jesus and Me, is the children’s ministry at The Chapel in Marlboro. Led by Tonya Yoder and a dedicated crew of children’s workers, the purpose statement for JAM is “Teaching our children to love and obey the Lord Jesus Christ.” JAM stresses the teaching of God’s Word as foundational in the lives of the children, called JAMmers. Beyond the basic teaching of Bible stories and life principles, JAM is an exciting and safe environment where your child will be able to have fun as well as learn that they are loved and befriended by Jesus and others.
Our JAM program gives our children K – 5th grade opportunities to sing with music time, enjoy family fun nights scheduled throughout the year, and experience various kid-friendly entertainers who present the Bible on a level that they can understand. The kids also enjoy our annual Vacation Bible School each summer. Children and their parents create lasting friendships by enjoying these family friendly events.
AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) is an effective, dynamic ministry for children ages 3 through 6th grade. Our AWANA program meets from 6:30-8:00 on Wednesday evenings during the school year and encourages children through Bible memorization, Bible teaching, and various fun activities and team games. The overarching purpose of AWANA is to reach kids with the gospel and teach them to know, love, and serve Christ. Our AWANA program is directed by Tom Zimmerman.
