The Filling Station
We value children. It is our desire to assist you in guiding your children meet Jesus Christ and grow in their relationship with Him.
In doing so, we seek to develop active learning environments that guide children to live effective lives. We offer a complete scope of age-appropriate curricula to systematically take your child through a complete study of God’s Word from kindergarten through sixth grade.
Children have the opportunity to worship together in large group ministry, meet in small group Bible classes, and participate in boys’ and girls’ clubs. We carefully select and train each of our teachers and leaders in order to help each child practically apply God’s Word to their daily life.
Kids love the fun and excitement of The Filling Station Worship Gathering. Action-packed songs, eye-popping object lessons, and quirky characters teach kids about God’s great love. Every gathering is built to connect kids to God and to each other in meaningful ways.
Elementary Sunday School is divided by grade level K–6th grade. Children participate in stories, learning activities and crafts that are engaging and age appropriate. Sunday School is a great small group learning time that allows children to build lasting relationships with other children and godly leaders.
Children are a very important part of the Berean community. We believe kids of all ages should have loads of fun while they’re learning about God’s Word, developing meaningful friendships, and taking their first steps toward Christian maturity. And Berean offers lots of resources specifically designed to help parents, too!

Promiseland serves our community by caring for children from birth through pre school, and operates during all services Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening. Loving and caring hands help nurture and see to the needs of our youngest.
The Promise Land facility is clean, with a high level of security. Each room is on a video monitor and workers and children are all kept at a set number and ratio. This including workers who been through a screening process and interview.
Children in each age group are taught using age-appropriate materials as well as kid-friendly teaching techniques.
We invite you to stop by and see Promiseland for yourself. The entrance is at the southwest corner of the main lobby.
More than changing diapers we are changing lives!
Mpact Girls Clubs are for girls grades K-6, and meet each Wednesday evening from 7:00 – 8:30 PM.

Royal Rangers Boys Clubs also meet Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 PM. Boys grades K-6 are challenged to embark on an adventure that requires them to participate actively. It is a spiritual journey that will forge their character and maximize their leadership potential.
To the uneducated eye, boys are just learning survival skills in the wilderness, playing sports, producing a music video, repairing the home of an elderly person, etc., but in the process, our mentors are intentional about laying biblical foundations of worldview, culture, manhood, and leadership. By awarding merit badges, boys are guided on a measurable, personal, and spiritual growth process. (They think they are just having fun, so let’s keep that our secret!)

Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ)
Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ) offers a fun exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths of God’s Word. Through cooperative learning, children work together on teams to learn and understand and questions and answers concerning Biblical truths. Then using competition, the children meet monthly with other teams throughout the state for a fun quizzing match.
JBQ is open to grade school children, and the program and competition run from September through March. It has been said that JBQ is the fastest growing discipleship program in children’s ministry. Many people have discovered it to be the best children’s program available for helping children to commit to learn the Word of God and how to apply it to situations in their lives.
For information on our teams and recent and upcoming Quiz Meets, see this page. To find out how your child can participate, contact JBQ leader Ryan & Joni Comer at email@example.com.

Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge (BGMC) is the missions education emphasis for children in the Assemblies of God. It provides resources to help teach kids about missions. It supports our missionaries in their fields of ministry in America and around the world.
Since its beginning in 1949, BGMC has enabled our missionaries to get the supplies they need in order to spread the gospel and reach the world. BGMC teaches kids about the needs around the world. Kids will want to respond. Jesus commanded us to reach out to those less fortunate.
Our missionaries use BGMC funds for any ministry supplies that relate to evangelism and discipleship, such as:
- Puppets, music, and video tapes
- Tracts, Bibles, and literature
- Sound systems, computers, and copy machines
- And a whole lot more!
For more information on how your child can participate, please contact Children & Family Community Pastor Kevin Umphress at firstname.lastname@example.org or browse the BGMC web page at http://bgmc.ag.org/.
