Due to COVID-19, things are being done a little bit differently. The children are no longer meeting in their classrooms but instead will be worshiping with their families in the worship center. There will be age appropriate Activity Bags available to help keep those busy minds and hands occupied. We also have rooms available to children who may need to get those wiggles and giggles (or cries) out. These rooms will also have the Worship Service being Live Streamed so you don’t have to miss a thing. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented time. We are praying and hoping to be able to open our KIDS Ministry soon!
What to Expect Your First Time
You and your child can expect to be warmly welcomed with a smile as you approach the Vertical Life KIDS “station.” You can’t miss it – it looks like a child’s “play house!” We will then ask you to fill out our registration form and upon completion your child will receive a name tag (sticker) and the parent/guardian as well. The parent/guardian will need this as identification to “pick-up” said child.
What We Teach
We teach curriculum that uses the unique learning characteristics of each age level (Gospel Project). God’s Word, the Bible is taught without apology in a relevent, creative, and fun way that engages the imagination of children, transforms lives, and points children to Jesus.
Nursery (0-36 Months):
It is never too early to teach kids about Jesus! In ministering to all the needs of the precious “little ones,” a foundation of trust is established between the church and parents. And rest assure that while you are worshiping and receiving God’s Word in the auditorium, your child is being cared for in an atmosphere full of God’s love.
Children learn to recognize that the Bible is God’s Word and that God loves and cares for us deeply. Each lesson actively engages every child in the Bible story, and points them to experience God’s love and know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Every family receives a take-home page each Sunday and parent’s are encouraged to ask questions about what their child has learned.
1st – 2nd Grades
Every story in the Bible points to Jesus! We strive to teach the children that they can discover Jesus throughout the entire Bible! As children study the Bible they develop a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Each week children are encourage to really know Jesus, love God, and live their faith in practical, tangible ways. We believe the Word of God not only changes a child but it changes a family. We encourage your child to bring their Bible every Sunday.
3rd – 5th Grades
Does your child know how some of the Bible’s most important principles and passages apply to them personally? That’s what we do in the 3rd-5th grade class! We’re taking basic Bible principles and key passages and explaining them in practical, kid friendly ways to help equip them for the years ahead. With the help of crafts, games, and other various activities, we strive to help each child connect with the truth of God’s Word and apply it to their daily life. Have them bring their Bibles and come join us!
