Thank you for allowing your children to visit the Kingdom Kids! When you first arrive you will check your child in at the Children’s Ministry Desk where they will get a name tag and parent pick-up ticket. On Sunday mornings at the 8:45 AM and 10:30 AM service, your child will begin the service with you because we embrace the idea of families worshiping together. After the kid’s sermon your children will be dismissed to go Kingdom Kids where their teachers will be waiting to greet them in the lobby and take them back to their classrooms.
Your child will be in a classroom with other children the same age, led by our trained volunteers. Each week they will participate in a biblical lesson and accompanying activities that help them to realize that God’s word is relevant in their lives. At the beginning of class a strong emphasis is placed on connection with each other, because we know that children learn best when they are in relationships with others.
After the worship service is over you may go and pick up your children their designated classroom. You will be asked to present the parent pick-up ticket you were given at check in.
Our community is such that we encourage and expect you to take part in it. We will ask you to occasionally help out, we will give you tools to engage in conversations with your child about their learning and we will always make ourselves available to you in helping you become your child’s spiritual leader. We want this to be an adventure that we embark on together because we know that when we leverage our influences of church and home we can have an amazing impact in the lives of our children.
Do you want to SERVE on the Children’s Ministry Team? Do you want to help disciple our children on Sunday mornings? The kids are ready and the lesson is prepared! We are always looking for people to help serve in Children’s Ministry. We like to ask people for at least 4 Sundays a year, only 4. Our Bible Bucks store is always seeking volunteers as well to run the store just one day a month. If you are interested in serving in either of these two areas, CLICK HERE.
Our team is excited to meet you and your children! It is our mission to partner with you in teaching your children about Jesus. We are passionate about families and helping you to develop lifelong patterns and routines that will help your family grow spiritually. We are available to meet with you at a park, for coffee around a table of other moms and dads, for lunch one day simply to offer support, advice or hands on ideas about how to be the spiritual leaders that God talks about, in Deuteronomy 6, to your children.

What if you could change the world – not just for today but for generations to come? At Moms in Prayer International, we believe that a mom can be the single greatest force for good in the lives of her children and the children around her. We believe that lives and whole communities are changed forever when moms gather together to pray to the only One who can change a human heart. Moms can make the difference as they reach out to God in prayer – moms just like you. We have two groups that meet, one that prays for school-aged children on Tuesdays and one that prays for adult children that meets on Sundays. For more information please contact Lisa Freyschlag at CO@MomsinPrayer.org. You can also go to the website at www.MomsInPrayer.org.
