We come along families to create a firm foundation in Christ Jesus by loving children and teaching truth.
Generation Ministries offers childcare during our worship service for children two months to nine years old. Generation Ministries wants our children growing up knowing God's heart for them. Our children's ministry means to foster children's curiosity for God and teach Bible stories that demonstrate how much he cares for them. We offer fun activities, like crafts, games, memory verses and plays, that center around the theme that God loves his children, of all ages.
We believe that children's ministry is essential to establishing s a Biblical foundation of understanding who God is, his love for us, and the importance of having a relationship with him. Since childhood is an especially impressionable age, we want to cultivate such a foundation that each child, in years to come, can look back on for Biblical truth, guidance, and encouragement.
Sam and Jessica Pilch share a passion for teaching children about how much God loves them. They both have a background in teaching and bonding with children; the couple wants each child in their ministry to be taken care of and loved.
Sam, or "Mr. Sam" to many children, currently works as a school bus driver, where he drives Anderson School students to class and field trips. According to Jessica, "Sam is more than a safe bus driver. He goes out of his way to bond with the kids, to interact and make them laugh." Sam worked with Children's Bible School in Northern Ireland, taught Awana for two years, and co-taught Bethel Church's Sunday School and VBS. Sam's servant's heart shapes how he interacts with children,"God put it in my heart to serve them the best I can," he claims.
Jessica's inspiration for working with children comes from Woodlake Presbyterian Church's Thursday night Kid's Club that reached out into the community and taught the children about Jesus. "That Kid's Club had an impact on those kids for the rest of their lives. It showed me that I want to be a part of something like that," Jessica says. Jessica is currently majoring in Early Childhood Development at Montana State University and works as an aide for Hawthorne Elementary School. She has experience with children of all ages, from her two years working with preschoolers at Bozeman Montessori to helping lead Neogen and Woodlake Presbyterian's youth group. Jessica wants the children she teaches to find their worth in God's love.
