Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. – 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)

Children are an important part of life at SEC and we praise God for each one!
Sunday School - From September to June we offer Sunday School classes at 9:30 a.m. for all ages. During Sunday School, children will be welcomed by caring teachers who will offer Bible lessons in a fun and age-appropriate way. During the summer, when there is no Sunday School, activity pages are provided.
Children's Church - Children’s Church takes place during the sermon portion of our worship service on Sunday mornings (September - June). Children ages 3-7 will be invited to the front of the church where they will be prayed for and sent off to enjoy a time of fun and learning under the supervision of our caring Children’s Church volunteers.
Children's Feature - Occasionally during our worship service, a children’s feature will be offered. This could be a story or a puppet show or an illustration; always with a message attached and always with a treat at the end!
Club DJ - Club DJ is a bi-weekly event (September - June) for children aged 4-12.  Children who come to club will learn truths from the Bible about Jesus Christ while having fun doing activities, crafts, singing songs and making friends.
DVBS - DVBS is an exciting week in summer where kids have a blast with leaders and other kids! Includes stories, games, songs and snacks. (This event depends on the availability of volunteers and therefore may not run each summer.)
Our volunteers involved in children's ministry have gone through the Plan to Protect program.

Our Social Committee works to provide the whole church family with activities that promote family unity. In the past this has included potlucks, holiday banquets, bus trips to Rider games, Corn Maze adventures, etc.
Each June, we celebrate together with a Church Family Picnic. Fellowship, food and fun.
Other events like Dramas, Garage Sales, Caroling, Christmas Baking Giveaways, Craft Sales and Clothing Giveaways are all examples of events that SEC has offered to encourage community involvement and fellowship.

Volunteers are always welcomed. The more volunteers the lighter the load. Prayerfully consider serving in these areas.

Music - The ministry of music in SEC involves many in our congregation who have been gifted in this area. At present we have two worship teams who are dedicated to serving during our morning worship.
Drama - SEC has, in the past, enjoyed putting together full-length dramas and presented them either as an outreach tool or as a fundraiser. These dramas have always been well accepted and appreciated. Short skits have been included in the occasional morning worship service. There is a spot for anyone wishing to be involved in this ministry.
Consider PowerPoint, sound booth and livestream as a way to serve.

We have a wonderful team of people who are gifted with skills to keep things running smoothly behind the scenes: mowing grass, shoveling snow, changing light bulbs, fixing things, etc.
