Community Kids Curriculum

Birth - 24 MOnths

Our Nursery Environment helps even the youngest children become familiar with Jesus' love for them. We provide kids with a place where they feel safe, cared for and can begin to learn how to trust God and others.  

2 YEars Old - 5th Grade

We believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care. We want kids to see how God's Word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to Him and to build friendships that will last as they transition to middle school and beyond..

The curriculum was developed to be a FUN, ENGAGING, and EFFECTIVE way to inspire kids to know and love God, teaching students:
  1. The Bible: the big picture of the Old Testament and New Testament as a whole, unified revelation of God’s truth to us.
  2. The Gospel of Jesus: salvation by grace through faith as presented throughout the entire Bible.
  3. The Basics of Christianity: life transformation through prayer, worship, evangelism, scripture memory, baptism, communion, tithing, fellowship, serving, missions, etc.
Lessons are based on the following structure:
Know Right: A key passage from Scripture
Think Right: A key Scripture verse to meditate on during the week
Do Right: The challenge to live God’s Word
Feel Right: The result of applying the lesson and having a biblical worldview rather than a secular worldview

Special Needs / Buddy Program

Birth - 5th Grade

Our desire is to provide support and encouragement for families (birth – 5th grade) with special needs.  Our plan is that we can come alongside families to provide the best possible environment for kids to learn about Jesus.
Each week, our “buddies” work one-on-one with a child ensuring inclusion in the Children’s Ministry.  Using Jesus as their model, our Community Kids volunteers serve the ministry by coming alongside each parent to best meet every need of every child.  We are committed to making church a great place for “EVERY” child!

Safety & Security

In order to provide the safest environment for your children while in our care, we follow a strict check-in process.

All Nursery, Waumba Land and UpStreet volunteers are carefully trained and background checked, including PA 153 clearances, before serving in our children’s ministries.

Children who have shown signs of fever, vomiting or other contagious illnesses should be symptom and fever-free for 24 hours before coming to Nursery, Waumba Land and/or UpStreet.

Our Children's area remains locked and has a security team dedicated specifically to this area during each service.
