1st Kids in the Word

1st Kidsis a mid-week ministry for kindergarten through 8th graders in which children find a sense of direction, purpose, and relationship within the church.

Based on Acts 2:42:

They (the believers) devoted themselves
to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship,
to the breaking of bread and to prayer

1st Kids has four parts:

Fellowship – emphasizes the importance of children’s involvement in the worship of God through vocal choir.

Foundation – children discover and connect with Jesus Christ throughout the Bible in the program entitled, Give Me Jesus.

Fun – play is a great way to practice treating each other as children of God.  We share in games, crafts, and calming activities during this time.

Family Time – food, fellowship, and fun around an intergenerational table filled with God’s people.
