Infants to 5th Graders
Kids Connect is a children’s ministry designed with you and your child in mind! Our desire is to CONNECT with you and your child so we can CONNECT them to CHRIST and HIS CHURCH. Kids from 1 yrs old to 5th grade will experience age-appropriate and safe environments where they can learn about God and the Bible in practical and fun ways. You’ll go home with a overview of what your child learned that day and ways to bring the spiritual talk home.
Background Checked Volunteers
kids on sunday in 4 different age groupings
Kids Connect meets during both Sunday services at 9 and 10:30 a.m. for kids ages 1 yrs old to 5th graders. We teach biblical truths through storytelling, small group discussion, crafts, on-the-go activities, and music while building faith skills such as bible reading, bible memorization, prayer, and sharing our faith. Kids of all ages are taught the same story, but tailored to their age group. So if you have a child in 5th grade and a preschooler, they learn about the same story, but the story is more detailed and in-depth for the older kids.
We’ll learn through the entire Bible in a 3 yr cycle. We might not cover every passage but we cover most of the major stories and Bible characters from Genesis to Revelation.
We’ll learn about praising God through song along with movements and motions. These songs are engaging and have a modern style.
Fun & Active
Most kids want and need to move around. God isn’t boring and our learning about Him shouldn’t be either. We have activities that are fun and reinforce the message of the week.
You as parents, grandparents, and guardians have a huge responsibility to raise your child/ren in the knowledge and ways of God. We are here to help as best we can. We know it takes a village of family, friends, and encouragers.
We are a special needs aware ministry, which means we are sensitive to and take into consideration those with special needs. We will accommodate as much as possible. Share with the Children’ Director with any questions or ways to partner with your child.
Safety & Security
We take safety and security seriously. All volunteers are CORI & SORI checked. Two adults are in classrooms at all times. During checkin, you will receive a tag matching a tag that goes on your child. We also have cameras and a team observing every Sunday.
When you pick up your child from KC, you’ll receive a sheet to reinforce the lessons at home. We also provide Family Fun Nights and a Parenting Conference to help equip you with parenting skills and strengthen the bond with your child.
Family Viewing Room
We understand that most parents of little ones keep their babies with them so Kids Connect offers environments for kids ages 1 yrs old to 5th grade in the kids wing. But we also offer a Family Viewing Room where the message is streamed in on video and you can watch the service in a more quiet and comfortable setting with your little one. It also provides an area for nursing mothers.
