KID LIFE

Weekends

Littles (Birth - 3 year olds)

Kid Life ‘Littles’ is a loving/fun place where your precious babies are loved on and pointed to Jesus. Every weekend we show kids that Jesus is alive, loves them, will always be with them, and has a plan for their life within the Big God Story!

Infants & Toddlers
These ‘Little Ones’ are cared for by loving volunteers who hold, rock, sing to and play with your precious ones…as you are learning more and more about Jesus in Big Church!

2 year olds
They are definitely getting around more and more. These ‘Little Ones’ will hear Bible Stories, sing songs, and memorize the first 5 Books of the Bible! And of course, they will also enjoy goldfish crackers and our FUN ‘indoor playground’!!!

We really want to equip you as parents to be the primary spiritual nurturers of your kid's faith. Each week in Kid life, we provide a HomeFront Weekly Preteach, which gives you all that you need to facilitate weekly spiritual conversations with your kids and is tailored to your kids' developmental stage. This take-home sheet will contribute greatly to our time together the following weekend as we all come together and celebrate what you have taught them.  Some of the sections in the HomeFront Weekly include: “Just for Fun," “Did You Know?” and “Teachable Moments.”  There is even a section that will give you an opportunity to pray a blessing over your kids.  We look forward to what God is going to do as we all make an effort to nurture our kids' faith. See you this weekend!

Early Childhood (1st/2nd grade)

Kid Life Early Childhood is a wildly fun, actively engaging, and purposefully focused ministry for children in grades 1st/2nd. We aim to introduce every child to Jesus and help them build a strong foundation of faith.

We encourage families to go deeper into the Big God Story together during the week, and provide weekly pre-teach take-home resources to help facilitate that study and conversation. Families who take these opportunities are continually transformed as they learn together what it means to worship God with all they are—anytime and anyplace.

1st - 2nd grade
•    CONNECTING:  Sunday service begins with an opportunity to connect with other kids in their same grade, as well as a short time of playing with age-appropriate toys, in their assigned classroom.
•    ANTICIPATE:  Kids are then invited to engage in a fun activity as a prelude to what they will learn during the Large Group.
•    LARGE GROUP:  kids will participate in fun games, music, and hearing the Word of God.
•    RESPONSE:  kids head back to their rooms with their leaders discussing what was learned and respond to what the Holy Spirit is teaching them.
