Chapel Kids

Our church provides an environment which showcases Christ's love to our children through teaching, music, games, camps, and even puppets. We strive to assist parents in equipping future generations to make their own individual decisions to follow Jesus Christ.

Below are some highlights of our Chapel Kids ministry.  For more details, contact Jeremy and stay tuned for new and/or seasonal events.

Kids Bulletin

Download this Kids Bulletin to help your young child stay engaged during Family Worship here at church, at home, or when traveling.


The Nursery is available during Sunday School and Sunday Worship time as well as during Wednesday’s evening small groups. Drop your birth through 3 year-old child off at their age appropriate room and trust that your child will be cared for and loved during his or her time with us while being taught Scripture-based lessons. The nursery is sanitized each week, uses a child identification system, and has plenty of loving, qualified workers. You are welcome to use the nursery from the start to the conclusion of all Worship Services. Contact The Chapel office with any questions at 573-334-5948.


Sunday School Classes
While adults attend their own Sunday School Classes, children meet in age specific classes of their own. The Sunday School Classes offer focused learning in which kids are encouraged to see and understand the living Bible. Children’s Sunday School Classes begin at 9:00am.

Kid's Worship
Kids begin the Sunday 10:30 Worship time in Kid's Worship. The Kid's Worship Room is the place to be for videos, hands on activities, praise and worship, and valuable teaching.

What we believe

Throughout the school year, we will offer a Wednesday night program that seeks to hide God's Word in the hearts of kids, while having a great time playing games, learning songs, and forming friendships.  A main purpose of this time will be equipping children to defend the Christian faith.  The apologetics approach is taken directly from Scripture, with the goal of teaching a Biblical worldview of God, Self, and Others. Come check out Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8:00pm! 

vacation bible school

Each summer, The Chapel is transformed into a themed locale and kids from the community are invited, along with regular attending Chapel kids, in experiencing the gospel. Crazy games, catchy songs, crafts, snacks, skits, and more! The goal is to impact the lives of young people with the good news of Jesus.

Note 7/16/20: Due to the restrictions imposed by the Cape Girardeau County Public Health Center concerning social distancing and face coverings, it has become logistically unfeasible to host Vacation Bible School this summer without the confusion and distraction the Face Covering Order places on children and leaders and which necessarily detracts from the organization and enjoyment of the VBS week.  This is a disappointing adjustment, but we are committed to honoring Christ and we will continue to seek out creative and exciting ways to enjoy gathering and teach the truths of God’s Word to our children and families. 

summer camp

Each summer, kids ages 8-12 are invited to come spend a few adventuresome days swimming, jumping, running, and generally having an amazing time learning about God.


Twice a year, parents are given an opportunity to make a public commitment before God and The Chapel body expressing the desire to raise their children biblically for the glory of the Lord.
