We are going to have a great time as we create Valentine Cards for troops who are deployed overseas to let them know how much they are appreciated.
We will meet in the Large Group Room at 12:30 p.m. on January 13 to have Pizza, chips and drinks and then will rotate into various grade classrooms to create handmade Valentine cards for our troops. We should end between 2:00 and 2:30 p.m.
Parents, please RSVP by 10 a.m. this Thursday, January 10!
Children in 2nd grade and younger must have a parent or guardian stay with them at all times.
On Sunday mornings First Kids offers two venues for children to know God better.
Small Group Bible Studies - Teaching Bible truths every Sunday morning through Bible studies, crafts, playing games, and other activities are all ways your children will learn of God's love for them. Our teachers are committed to caring for your children by creating a positive and spiritual atmosphere for them.
8 – 9:15 a.m. = Grades K – 6 (broadly graded classes)
9:30 – 10:45 a.m. = Grades 3 – 5
11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. = Grades K – 2
FUSION - FUSION is a time for children, Kindergarten – Grade 5, to worship God in a way that is fun and understandable for them. We have two different exciting worship Services on Sunday.
9:30 a.m. = Kindergarten - Grade 2
11:00 a.m. = Grades 3 – 5
Our Bible study and worship leaders are committed to caring for your children by creating a positive and spiritual atmosphere for your child. The safety and security of all children is top priority at First Kids! We have secured and monitored areas where our children learn and play as well as a security team that is available if needed. All of our adult volunteers have passed background checks to ensure another layer of safety. Children can be checked in by a parent or guardian at the entrance to the 2nd floor of the Family Life Center. Upon picking up your child, parents / guardians must present the receipt issued during check-in earlier that day.
Along with the rest of Next Generation Ministry, we will be teaching The Gospel Project, which immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
