World Changers is our Kid's Wednesday Night Program that meets every Wednesday in the Children's Wing from 6:30pm-7:30pm for children ages 4 years old-5th grade.

The mission of World Changers is to develop kids to be mature followers of Christ that can change the world for the Kingdom of God in their daily life. We engage through Bible stories, scripture memorization, music, crafts, and skits! We divide into two groups for our Bible lesson and Missions class after beginning together: The Globetrotters (2nd-5th grade) and The Explorers (4 yrs-1st grade). Our classes run the course of the school year, with the exception of our "Service Quest" program in January and February. 

At the beginning of the new year we start Service Quest! Service Quest  gives our children the opportunity to learn a new way to serve others by taking 2, 3-4 week classes. Our classes can range from Kids Construction, to Music ministry, to Recycled Art, and many more in between! At the completion of our classes we have a Service Quest Sale where all items made during class can be purchased to support a local outreach, keeping us true to our Service Quest motto: Kids Serving Kids!


During our 9:00am  and 11:00am worship services, Children's Church is provided for children ages 4 years old-5th grade! After the 'Mystery Box' Children's Moment the kids will be led to a classroom by a volunteer for their Bible lesson, activity, and scripture memory game designed to help them grow in their relationship with God! 

Sunday school

Children's Sunday School classes meet at 10:00am in the Children's Wing. You’ll find classes for those in the Nursery (3 years old and younger), as well as a class for ages 4 years old through 1st grade, and a class for 2nd-5th Graders. Sunday School involves scriptural based curriculum filled with games, application, and fun! Parents can sign children in and out at their respective classrooms, and enjoy attending an Adult Sunday School class!

Attention Acolytes! Please remember to contact Sylvia Hotard if you unable to serve on your assigned day. It is important that we know so we can contact someone else to serve in your place. We are always looking for more people to serve. If anyone is interested in serving as an acolyte, please contact Sylvia Hotard or the Church Office.


We would love for you and your little one to visit our Nursery located in the Children's Wing! We offer exciting, age appropriate, Biblically based curriculum on Sunday mornings from 8:30am-12:30pm, and Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm-7:30pm for children 3 years old and younger. Our Clarkesville Kids Nursery Workers are committed to providing a safe, fun, and Christ-centered atmosphere for your children.
