Sunday | 1030 am
We are so excited for you and your children to visit us at KIDS CHURCH. We have kids Sunday programming at our 1030 am service.
At Kids Church, we want kids to make life-long friends while encountering and learning about Jesus. the Son of God and the Savior of the world.
We have 4 classrooms available:
Nursery – 6 months old to 2.5 years old. (infants and walkers)
Preschool – restroom independent 2.5 years old to Transitional Kindergarten
Younger Elementary – Kindergarten to 2nd Grade
Older Elementary – 3rd Grade to 5th Grade
What to expect:
Kids will engage in a fun and engaging Bible lesson, enjoy games and crafts, and learn a memory verse and a challenge to live out their faith during the week. We want to be a place where kids can find love and belonging, where they can believe and put their trust in Jesus, the Savior of the World, and where they can become the blessing to their communities using the gifts, talents, and treasures that God has given them.
Follow the signs to our first floor Check-In area which will guide you to where the classrooms are. You will walk your child and drop them off to their rooms where a friendly leader will greet you. Kids Church ends at the end of our worship gathering at around 1140 am. Pick-up will be at the same room you dropped your child off.
**God Sightings – After check-in it is our practice to ask parents and kids, “Where did you see God this week?” For our preschool and elementary kids, we ask them to write or draw where they’ve encountered God this past week. It might have been at someone’s birthday party, at school, at their sports practice, at a dance recital, at Disneyland, at home, in their grandparents house. The God Sightings gets pinned at a wall close to their classrooms. It’s encouraging to see how even at an early age, kids know that God is moving and active and caring for them, everywhere they go.
What are they learning:
At our Nursery, our volunteers will care for your child, play worship music and pray for them. We love to read books to the little ones, and the nursery is full of nursery books from the Bible.
At our Preschool Tidepool class, we are using the AWANA Cubbies curriculum and tailor fitting it to their level. We also offer Cubbies midweek on Wednesdays, and the Kids Church curriculum walks through another Cubbies book different than Wednesdays. (For example, if Wednesdays uses HoneyComb Handbook, Sundays we use the AppleSeed Handbook)
At both our Younger and Older Elementary classes, we are using AWANA Brite Curriculum. This curriculum supplements the midweek AWANA experience. We divide our time into three sections (Make it Fun – Welcome Activity, Make it Stick – Lesson, and Make it Real – Game or Craft).
AWANA stands for Approved Workers Are Not Ashamed from 2 Timothy 2:15. It is our child discipleship program that is both Highly Scriptural and Highly Relational. At AWANA we help kids hide God’s Word in their hearts and make life-long friends. We want kids to respond to the love of God in Jesus that they respond in worship and give their lives to the Lord and live generous lives now.
We are excited to offer AWANA this Fall on Wednesday evenings again. Stay tuned for more information.
