Enriching Experiences for Kids at Forward Church

Welcome to Forward Church, where we believe that children are the future! We are a vibrant and inclusive community focused on faith and beliefs, providing enriching experiences for kids in the Cleveland area. With our diverse programs, engaging activities, and dedicated team, we aim to nurture the spiritual growth, character development, and learning of every child who walks through our doors.

Our Commitment to Spiritual Growth

At Forward Church, we understand the importance of cultivating a strong spiritual foundation in children. Through our age-appropriate teachings, interactive worship, and meaningful discussions, we strive to instill core values such as love, compassion, and integrity in each child. Our goal is to create an environment where kids can ask questions, explore their faith, and deepen their relationship with God.

Engaging Programs Catered to Different Age Groups

We recognize that children have unique needs and interests at different stages of their lives. That's why we offer a range of engaging programs tailored to various age groups:

Toddlers (Ages 2-4)

  • Storytime sessions that introduce biblical narratives in an interactive and playful manner.
  • Creative arts and crafts activities to stimulate cognitive development and imagination.
  • Song and dance sessions to engage young minds and foster a love for worship.

Elementary School Kids (Ages 5-10)

  • Age-appropriate Bible lessons that combine storytelling, skits, and group discussions.
  • Fun games and team-building activities that promote social skills and cooperation.
  • Opportunities for community service, teaching kids the importance of caring for others.

Preteens and Teens (Ages 11-17)

  • In-depth Bible studies that encourage critical thinking and personal reflection.
  • Youth-led worship services where teens can express their faith through music and prayer.
  • Mentoring programs that provide guidance and support during this formative stage.

Fostering Character Development

At Forward Church, we believe that character development is essential for kids to navigate the challenges of life with resilience and integrity. Our programs incorporate values-based teachings that promote kindness, empathy, and respect towards others. Through age-appropriate discussions, role-playing, and real-life examples, we empower children to make positive choices, understand the impact of their actions, and grow into compassionate individuals.

Extracurricular Activities

Aside from our regular programs, we also offer a variety of extracurricular activities that cater to the diverse interests of children:

Music and Arts Programs

Whether it's singing in the choir, learning to play a musical instrument, or participating in art workshops, we provide opportunities for kids to explore and express their creative talents. Through these activities, they can develop their artistic skills, gain confidence, and contribute their gifts to our worship services and community events.

Sports and Recreation

Physical health and wellness are important aspects of a child's overall development. That's why we organize sports leagues, recreational activities, and outdoor adventures to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. Our sports programs promote teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship, instilling values that extend beyond the playing field.

Community Outreach

We believe in empowering kids to make a positive impact on the world around them. Through our community outreach programs, we provide opportunities for children to serve others, engage in charitable initiatives, and develop a heart for social justice. These experiences cultivate empathy, gratitude, and a sense of responsibility towards their community.
