Children (1st - 5th)
We want the children of The Village to have a deeply rooted confidence in the character of God so they passionately follow Him through good and bad times. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by providing environments, curriculum and resources that center on the gospel and teach the nature and character of God.
When Kids' Village Meets
Kids' Village is a place where kids spend time learning and worshiping through song, story and study during weekend services. Song and story take place in a large group where 1st - 5th graders gather together. Study takes place in small groups where kids of the same age open the Bible and learn from each other and their leader.
If you’re visiting for the first time, you will need to fill out a registration card to receive a check-in tag and security stickers. The stickers serve two purposes:
- Parent Paging – If we need you during service, the number on your sticker will be displayed in the Worship Center.
- Child Pick-up – You must present your portion of the sticker before we release your child.
Feel free to bring the registration card already filled out to save time. Children may be checked in 30 minutes before service begins, but they may only be dropped off 15 minutes early and once their leader arrives.
If you have a child with special needs, we would love to partner with you in ministering to your child. Please talk to a Children's ministry staff member or contact the Special Needs ministry for more information.
Scripture is clear that parents have been given the joy and responsibility of raising their children in the ways of Jesus. We desire to partner with you as you disciple your children. One of the ways we do this is by providing resources to help you talk with your children about the gospel.
Family Discussion Questions
Each week we provide Family Discussion Questions that correspond with the Kids' Village lesson. This resource includes questions to help you review the Bible story with your child and suggestions for how to apply that story at home. They are available in the Children's Parents group on The City.
We treat the baptism of children with special care and have created a class to help parents walk through the process with their children. For more information, visit our Baptism page.
