Where Kids Discover And Love Who Jesus Is!
What is CommunityKIDS?
Every Sunday, infants through fifth-graders experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way, one that is uniquely geared towards their age and stage of life. We would love for you and your family to visit CommunityKIDS this Sunday!
Our ministry groups kids by age and grade:
Nursery: 6 weeks to 1 year
Early Childhood: 2 to 3 years
Early Childhood: 4 years to K
Elementary: 1st – 3rd grade
Elementary: 4th - 5th grade
Join the fun and experience a place where kids can discover and love who Jesus is!
Your First Visit
CommunityKIDS opens 15 minutes before the service starts. Your first stop when you arrive will be the kid’s check-in area. Here, we will learn your names, ask about allergies, and gather your contact information. Then, you and your child will both receive a wearable sticker with matching codes. This sticker will serve as the key to checking your child into their classroom, as well as what you’ll use for pick-up after service.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. All of our CommunityKIDS volunteers have passed a background check and completed training in their areas. We also have a member of our safety team stationed in the kids area throughout service. We strive to make our ministry feel like a home, a rather loud & energetic home, but nonetheless a place where families feel welcome, safe, and cared for.
The Ride Home
We would love for you to keep the conversation going in the car ride home. These two questions are near and dear to us:
Did you have fun?
What did you learn about Jesus?
Our goal is to have a positive answer to both of those questions each and every week. With so many things in this world influencing them at an impressionable age, we want our kids to discover and love who Jesus is in a fun and creative way.
A take home resource will be provided that corresponds to what was taught during class on the weekend. We encourage you to spend time as a family unpacking truths about Jesus, His Love, and the Bible through fun activities and games throughout the week.
WHAT WE VALUE
We want to engage and teach kids in such a passionate and creative way that the Bible comes to life. We want this to be evident through the games, environment, and activities provided. We believe that an exciting culture is contagious and that CommunityKIDS can spread passion and joy into adults and kids alike.
Growing together is always better. We want kids to find a place in a group of their peers where they can be authentic, make friends, and learn together. After learning Bible stories together in a larger setting, regrouping into small groups will allow for kids to experience and explore biblical truths together. Here, they can encourage one another and grow together in a group designed for their specific stage of life.
We want kids to look forward to church. We believe that seeing church as a place where kids can laugh, ask questions, and be silly can make a world of difference. We want kids to enjoy and remember learning about Jesus.
At CommunityKIDS we believe that it’s truly better to give than receive. We constantly look for opportunities to help kids see ways that they can help the people in their lives, and community.
It’s our goal at CommunityKIDS to make our ministry one of the best hours of every kid’s week! We want to do all we can to help families as they discover and love who Jesus is, and consider it a privilege to do so.
We'd love to talk with you in person or via email any time!
