CHRIST Kids focuses on laying a Biblical foundation, planting seeds of faith, and digging deep into God’s word. We believe that faith formation happens both in the church and in the home, and want to come alongside parents to equip and empower them to be leaders in their child’s spiritual journey!
Our MINISTRY EXISTS TO..
- Bring children into age-appropriate WORSHIP/SUNDAY SCHOOL/BIBLE STUDY
- Teach kids so that they will KNOW they belong to the family of God
- Disciple kids so they GROW in their relationship with Christ
- Encourage kids to SHOW their faith and Christ’s love in the world!
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God,” Ephesians 3:16-19
Nursery (Birth – age 2)
The youngest kids of our church family are welcomed into age and developmental appropriate classes by our experienced childcare providers. We strive to provide a loving and Christian environment where the children can feel safe, learn they are loved by God, and look forward to playing with their friends.
Early Childhood (Age 3- PreK)
Our volunteers and staff create an intentional environment, where the children grow in God’s love through age-appropriate worship, games, discussion, and crafts. We pray that these children, and their parents, feel loved, supported, and encouraged at this exciting time in their faith journey.
Elementary (Kinder-4th grade)
Kids will grow in their faith exponentially at this stage. Our volunteers welcome them into a fun, engaging environment to help them learn God’s word, discover biblical truths through life application, build friendships, and develop a deeper faith in who they are to God.
56 (5th and 6th grade)
Preteens are welcomed into an environment all their own, that serves as a bridge from Dig Kids to Student Ministries. We continue to dive deeper into biblical truths with life application discussion to help them grow in faith, be secure in their identity, develop friendships, and share their knowledge of Jesus with others.
Nursery is open during all 3 services for Babies through Pre-K. The 3-5 year old Pre-Kindergarten kids have their own Sunday School class with Bible lesson, interactive play, crafts and fun music and activites. On Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m., 3-year-olds through 6th graders are welcomed into their age-divided classrooms by our staff and volunteers to develop friendships and bond with their peers and adult volunteers. Soon, children gather in their age-divided, large-group spaces for an engaging time of worship, a bible story, and large group activities using Orange Curriculum. From here, students move back to their classrooms to dive deeper and participate in age- appropriate discussions and activities. Bring your kids to join in the fun on Sunday Mornings!
Wednesday Nights are FUN for kids and their families! UNITE is our church-wide, mid-week meal and Bible studies during the calendar school year. From 6:30-8:00 p.m., CHRIST Kids has nursery open for babies through 2-year-olds. At the same time (6:30-8:00 p.m.), we have a fun and exciting Bible study time for older kids in each of their age groups (3-year-olds, Pre-K, Elementary, and 56). We hope to see your kids on Wednesdays!
CHRIST Kids schedules many exciting events throughout the year such as Fall Festival, grade events, and Family Easter event. We have seasonal family events and divided age group events planned to bring the children in our church family together to grow in God’s love. We encourage the kids to bring their friends to the events so they can show them what Christ Kids is all about! Look on our calendar or check your email for details on how your family can get involved with our next event.
CHRIST Kids is led by a team of staff and volunteers whose passion is children! Our church could not disciple all of our children without our volunteers. They are essential! Anyone can serve our church family by volunteering with CHRIST Kids. Our volunteers undergo a background check and receive training so they are equipped to serve. We pray that you would consider joining us and sharing Christ with our kids!
