Welcome to KidsZone
Where Families Grow in Grace & in the Knowledge of Jesus Christ!
Expect Change to Happen!
Children are precious to us and to God. We want all children to be welcomed into a safe and loving environment in which they can grow in their developing faith. We realize that teaching is a partnership with our parents and we strive to support their efforts in leading their children to a life long relationship with Christ. Through a biblical, child-friendly curriculum that’s interactive and fun, we strive to provide a place where kids want to bring their friends, parents can connect, and Christ’s redemptive message will be clear.
- Safety -Emotionally and Physically: where kids know that they are valued
- Leading Children to Christ: through modeling & teaching
- Equipping Families: providing tools to build upon Sunday’s lessons
- Teaching Biblical Truth: not just stories, but truths they can count on
- Relevancy and Fun: Why it matters what they remember
- Child-Targeted Teaching: age appropriate & incorporating diverse learning styles
Our curriculum “FaithWeaver” is published by Group Publishing. Each class follows the same Bible topic, but with age appropriate application. Summer and Fall seasons focus on the Old Testament. Winter and Spring seasons draw from the New Testament. We use the R.E.A.L. learning approach in our classrooms to creatively teach the Father’s foundation with fun:
R- Relational Children work in small groups to explore their understanding at a personal level.
E- Experiential using multiple senses increases learning and retention tenfold. You’ll find water tables, painting, puppetry, music, parachutes, drama and more.
A- Applicable Beyond information to transformation, your child should be able to answer “so what?” when they leave their class.
L- Learner-based Our teachers strive to use words appropriate to their specific age level and invite them to take on a weekly challenge to apply their learning.
Who Are Our Teachers? Our volunteer classroom teachers are carefully selected through an application process, are interviewed by the Children’s Ministry Pastor and have a CORI background check administered. We look for teaching that is full of surprises, interesting, and challenging. Our teachers are dedicated to being prayerful and loving towards the children as they bring high-energy and creativity to the classroom. We’d love you to come check us out if you are interested. Let us set up a time where you can just shadow a teacher as a helper and you can get an idea of where you might fit in.
