For Pre-school Children to 5th grade 


The purpose of Shining Stars Children's Ministry is to introduce, teach, and encourage the the biblical education of our children from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. We communicate the gospel through formal and informal opportunities. Our methods allow us to help children strengthen and build their faith and their relationship with our Lord Jesus, so that they may be able to share the Light of Jesus Christ with others.

 Shining Stars Sunday School takes place after fellowship time every Sunday for one hour, September – May, unless otherwise noted. We begin with a beautiful Gathering Time which consists of worship, prayer and scripture memory. Then, we split up into grade levels, growing in God and learning HIS Word, following Biblically sound curriculum with the guidance of our dynamic teachers!

Please join us at the Children’s Ministries Registration Counter located in the South Foyer Nursery area to register your children for our Sunday morning activities in the Nursery and/or our Shining Stars Sunday School Program.

If you have any questions about registering your child for Sunday School, please contact Mary Watts.

Cadet Club is an integral and fundamental ministry of Crete Church that aims to effectively share Christ's love with boys from within the church and the community. As a covenant Christian group working together with church and home, we commit to helping boys grow more Christlike in all areas of life.

Boys learn the knowledge and skills of being a Christian man through building, doing, studying, and playing.

The Cadets ministry is for boys grades 2-8. We meet most 1st and 3rd Wednesdays 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (with family dinner served 5:30 p.m - 6:00 p.m.) from mid-September through the beginning of May. You don't have to be a member of Crete Church to participate, so bring a friend!
