Primary “Power Hour” is NOT “Sunday School, Part 2.” It IS the children’s ministry exciting program for first and second graders during the morning worship hour. While dad and mom attend “big church,” Primaries transition from the Sunday School hour to their own worship service filled with practical teaching on how they can take what they have heard and use it in their daily lives.
As its own separate and unique program, Primary “Power Hour” is another stepping stone Lavon Drive Baptist Church offers children as many of them begin their journey in the Christian life. Helping first and second graders understand and receive the gift of salvation is priority number one; giving them the tools to grow through praise choruses, Scripture memory, lesson-related crafts, and Bible teaching with practical applications is always the desire and goal of each dedicated worker. Small group time, with a teacher/student ratio of one to six, allows individual attention and follow up to occur. Each teacher has passed a background check and is easily identifiable by the photo identification badge worn at all times to ensure the safety of all.
Throughout the year, the children are encouraged to participate in several “Christian Service Projects,” whether it be bringing care-package items for college students, crayons for children in foreign countries, medical supplies for short-term missionary trips, or money for special missionary projects.
“Power Hour” begins at 10:30 a.m. as Primaries are taken from Sunday School to Room #10 just down the hall in the Academy Building, located on the far north side of the campus. After singing, Bible memory, and lesson time, “Power Hour” teachers escort the first and second graders to the Coleman Center, located behind the East Wing between the football field and gymnasium, to Room #107, for craft and review time. Parents may pick up their Primary at the close of the morning worship service in the Coleman Center, Room #107.
