Kidz Connect is our fellowship time for children every Sunday morning. We meet in the Children’s Library (CB310) for snacks. We catch up with each other, talk about things we need to know about at church, and prepare for our time of learning together in FaithQuest.
FaithQuest - 9:50-10:45 a.m. - Grades 1-4 - 3rd Floor Children's Building
A different way for children to learn about faith—that’s what FaithQuest is designed to do. FaithQuest is a rotation model that makes use of child-friendly learning methods and environments that promote involvement, discovery, and creativity for children’s Bible Study.
September and October • Bible 101 — We start a new school year learning and relearning some basics about the Bible. Songs, games, stories, and activities will be some of the many ways we’ll be learning and studing the Word of God.
Fifth and Sixth Grade Rocks! • Sundays • 9:45-10:45 a.m. in CB306
Fifth and sixth graders have their own time of learning, sharing and Bible Study on Sundays.
Finding Treasures in Worship
For children (and maybe adults), it isn’t always easy to keep up with everything that happens in worship services. Children are seeing and experiencing new things each week in worship. Finding Treasures in Worship is designed to help children not only focus on what’s happening, but help them learn to engage in worship. Each week the children receive a sheet with information about the worship service. There are questions to answer, words to find, scripture and music to focus on, and space to draw and write about things they see and hear in worship. Encourage your children to use these in worship. Find time to talk together as a family each week about what you all experienced in worship.
For children of all ages, there are worship bags located in baskets outside each entrance to the sanctuary, which can be used during worship. In them, you will find note pads, crayons/colored pencils, worship information sheets for preschoolers, and other materials kids can use during worship. Encourage children to use these as part of learning about worship, rather than a distraction from worship. Children learn by doing, so being a part of worship each week is how they learn what it means to worship God and be in community with others.
