NEXTGEN MINISTRY

Kids Ministry

Our Kids Ministry is about connecting kids to Jesus, nurturing every child to know the unconditional love of God, and growing spiritually in a welcoming environment. We offer kids programming on Sundays, Wednesdays, and every weekday in between!

Sunday Morning

Please Note: Children are welcome to join their families in worship at 9:45am Bridge in the Fellowship Hall or 11:00am Traditions in the Sanctuary. Kids Worship Bags are available at the connection desk outside of each service location if your kids want to do an activity during the service.

BIRTH – TODDLERS

9:45 & 11AM @ KIDS MINISTRY WING

Safe and loving childcare is offered during Sunday School and during both worship services for children birth – 2 years old. Nursery opens 15 minutes prior to services. Please bring a diaper bag with diapers for your child if they are not potty trained. Please have your child’s name on the bag.

2’S – KINDERGARTEN

9:45 & 11AM @ KIDS MINISTRY WING

On Sunday mornings, children ages 2 years old to kindergarten meet on the Kids Wing for Sunday School at 9:45am. We also offer additional preschool programming during the 11:00am service on the Kids Wing.  Each week preschoolers have the opportunity to engage in an exciting and interactive Bible Story that helps each child understand how much Jesus loves them!

1ST – 3RD GRADE

9:45 AM @ KIDS MINISTRY WING

On Sunday mornings, elementary students (1st – 3rd graders) engage in a fun way of learning the Bible from 9:45am – 10:45am. Through age-specific teaching along with games and crafts, your child will grow in their understanding of how much Jesus loves them.

 

4TH – 5TH GRADE

9:45 AM @ YOUTH CENTER

4th & 5th Graders have the opportunity to engage in a fun way of learning the Bible during Sunday School from 9:45am – 10:45am in the Activity Studio (located in the Youth Center). Students will spend time discussing a topic, learning how to pray, and participating in fun games and activities to help them grow in their faith.

DROP OFF PROCEDURE:

Drop off and Pick up birth – 3rd grade will be through the Great Hall. Please enter the Great Hall through the North or South Entrance and proceed to the Kid’s Ministry Doors for check in.
Pro-tip: Park in the North parking lot for the shortest walk to the Kid’s Ministry.

PICK UP PROCEDURE:

Parents/guardians for birth – 3rd graders must show their security sticker at the Kids Ministry Entrance and will then be allowed on to the hall to pick up their child. Parents/guardians must then give their security sticker to their child’s leader in order to pick up their child. 

Wednesday Nights

When children arrive at 5:30pm, please walk them in the North entrance, get them checked in, and then a volunteer will show you to your child’s room. There, they will eat pizza or Chick-fil-A (if pre-ordered) and hang out with their leaders and friends. At 6pm, we begin large group games and teaching, then break off into small groups. Children MUST be checked out from their classrooms at 7pm.

4th and 5th grade programming happens on Wednesday nights from 5:30pm – 7:00pm. Check-in is outside of the Youth Center. Students will eat their meal (if pre-ordered), enjoy some time playing in the gym, and will worship together in both large and small groups. Students should be picked up outside the Youth Center at 7:00pm.

*Nursery will be available for kids 2 and under for parents who are serving or are staying on campus to be involved in a small group or Wednesday night Bible study.

Whether it’s a Sunday morning, Wednesday night, or any day in-between, there’s an opportunity for your student to learn about Jesus and adult leaders who love and care for them as they study Scripture and learn how it makes a difference in their lives.

Sunday Morning

Sunday School is at 9:45am in the Youth Center.

We offer Sunday School for 6th-12th graders each Sunday in the Youth Center. Students gather for donuts, games, and a scripture-based lesson.

We believe that practicing our faith is important, and one great way we can put our faith into action is serving. We have three opportunities to serve on Sunday Mornings:

  • Kids Ministry
  • Hospitality
  • Tech Team

We are happy to help train your student. If they would like to be involved in any of these service opportunities, we would love to get them connected. Contact Lauren McMaster at (662)207-0641.
