COMMUNITY KIDS MINISTRY
FROM BIRTH - 5TH GRADE
Community is committed to passing on the truth of God’s Word to the next generation. We desire for children to experience the love of Christ through caring volunteers, a safe environment in which to play and learn, and age-appropriate activities designed to point them to Christ.
Community Kids Classrooms open at 10:15 AM for a time of intentional connection.
Upon arrival, children will check in and are given a name tag. Parents will receive a corresponding pick-up tag. We encourage you to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start of the Worship Service to complete the check-in process.
The following children’s groups are provided:
• Nursery (Birth – 2 years)
• Toddlers (2 & 3 years)
• Preschool (4 & 5 years)
• K-2nd grade
• 3rd-5th grade
In our Toddler and Preschool rooms, we utilize the Kidspring curriculum. Each unit includes a fun theme and lots of repetition. Lessons bring Bible stories to life through engaging activities and conversations.
Children in our Elementary classes are gaining an understanding of God and the Bible through the Gospel Project material, small group time, Bible memorization and various activities.
