  • gives children a strong foundation in Scripture through loving and nurturing teachers, committed to excellence
  • provides worship and prayer opportunities
  • develops a strong foundation for building a “servant heart” and to provide opportunities to love and serve others
  • provides support and opportunities for families to fulfill God’s purpose for their children as a member of God’s family

Christmas Play

The Long Branch Children work hard every year through rehearsals and practice for a Christmas play to be performed during December. This play serves as both a way for the children to learn more about Bible stories while also beginning to explore the idea of ministry and how they can play a part in spreading God’s Word.

Terrific Tuesdays

During the summer, when children are out of school, the Terrific Tuesday program provides fun, engaging activities on a select few Tuesdays. In the past, activities have included: baking for shut-ins, arts and crafts, a “Christmas-in-July” party, learning how to plant a plant, mini-golf, and lots more!
