Children

Kids are welcome here!

we love kids!

More importantly, we want them to know God loves them, too! FaithKids serves birth-fifth graders and is a safe place for children to connect, play, and worship as they explore God’s Word and grow in relationships with God and each other. Following Jesus is a grand adventure, and we’re here for you and your child every step of the way.

We also value investing in the families that come with kids. This fall we launched a new ministry called Awana Together! This is a Wednesday night ministry for kids from birth-fifth grade and the adults who care for them. Find out more about this innovative family ministry by clicking on the video below and checking out the Awana Together page HERE.

You can also find helpful resources for family faith on our Family Resource page HERE.

what to expect

Sunday Mornings

On your first visit, you will see the orange Faith Kids logo above a desk in the lobby. We will ask you for basic information to get to know you and your child. Faith Kids values health and safety. To learn more about our well-child policy, click here. In terms of safety, we have check-in and check-out system with a secured hallway staffed by one of our volunteers. Several rooms are divided by age and/or grade: Birth-two years, PreK, Kindergarten-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade. During the summer when attendance is lower, these classrooms are combined: Birth-PreK and K-5th grade.

Sunday Grow Hour @ 9am

Ministry Areas Available:
Nursery/Preschool (birth – 5 years)
Elementary (K-5th grade)

Sunday During Worship @ 10:30am

Ministry Areas Available:
Nursery/Preschool (birth – 5 years)

Beginning February 2023: Elementary kids (K-5th grade) will start in worship with their families and then are invited to their own time of learning during the sermon.

TO HELP KIDS WORSHIP: We know that some kids benefit from items that can help them stay calm and focused. Near the FaithKids check-in desk, you will find worship bags, fidgets, and noise cancelling headphones that your children are welcome to use in the sanctuary to help their worship experience be the best it can be. You are also more than welcome (actually encouraged!) to bring items from home that might help as well.

Midweek: Wednesdays 6:15-7:45pm

If you are looking for a way for your family to grow together at church, then take a look at our new Awana Together ministry that meets on Wednesdays from 6:15-7:45pm. This ministry is designed for kids from birth through fifth grade and the parents/grandparents/caregivers who accompany them! Awana Together is an innovative ministry that combines family worship and age-specific ministry all in the same night! Find out more here: AWANA TOGETHER

 

Special Needs and Sensory Room

Please connect with our FaithKids Director about how we can best assist your child. A caregiver or PCA is always welcome to join your child in programming. Our new wing is ADA compliant with accessible restrooms. We have a sensory room that can be used for scheduled sensory breaks with director approval. We believe that every child is made in the image of God. You matter to us and are welcome in our space.

Our sensory room is home to a variety of sensory equipment, including a swing, a trampoline, and more. Parents and caregivers can work with our Director of Children’s Ministry to develop a plan to help children with special needs worship. A special thanks to our friends at Joni & Friends for the matching grant that helped equip our sensory room.

Nursing Area

A nursing area is available in our new women’s restrooms in the lobby. This area provides a private and quiet environment to view the service and take care of the needs of your child. Outlets are available for those needing to plug in a pump.

What We Value

We believe in building relationships with caregivers as they shepherd and love their children. We walk alongside children and caregivers through the amazing gift of God’s story and Spirit; bringing the Bible to life in creative and interactive ways. We value each child immensely and work hard to ensure every child walking through our doors knows the Gospel of Jesus is for ALL kids. In order for our children and families to feel safe and secure in our space, we background check volunteers, secure our children’s wing, have a safety team and plan, and security tags for each child.
