BOLT Kids are energized by Jesus. BOLT Kids are empowered by the Bible, and are launched into the world to serve!
BOLT Kids partners with parents in preparing children to live, to grow in knowledge and service, and to share their faith as Christ ‘s disciple. Here is what we offer weekly to help families in this journey…
BOLT KIDS Bible School – each Sunday at 10:00 AM
Our Bible School program is an exciting, interactive, multimedia experience for children in preschool through 5th grade. With both large group times and small group activities, children have an opportunity to grow lasting bonds with God and with one another.
We teach The Gospel Project for Kids. A three-year curriculum that teaches the Bible in its book order. It offers a comprehensive view on how the Old and New Testament tell the story of God’s Big Plan for our redemption through Jesus.
Our program is for the whole family. We encourage parents to be involved by service and mentorship. Families that regularly attend church’s events and that are engaged in our community of faith develop Christian principles and lifestyle that help them navigate today’s world.

Church for children aged 5-8 years is offered each Sunday during the 11:10 am worship service. Upper Elementary children are encouraged to remain with their families during service and to experience worship in community.
The Genesis UMC Christian Preschool provides nurture and care for children ages two through transitional kindergarten from September through May of each year. Our Preschool provides a warm, Christian environment where each child feels welcome and loved. These children are offered developmentally-appropriate experiences and opportunities that enrich their cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development.
“We love the teachers at Genesis Christian Preschool and how they are genuinely excited to see our children everyday. They love interacting with the kids and, because of their enthusiasm, create a wonderful learning environment. We are so grateful for the preschool and know our children are learning and playing in a safe space.” Jodie, a parent of a preschoolerContact Marilyn Yoder
