Children’s Ministry

Welcome to KidsZone

Where Families Grow in Grace & in the Knowledge of Jesus Christ!

Stay in touch with us during the Covid-19 epidemic.

During this time of isolation and quarantine, it’s more important than ever to stay connected. Make sure Amy  has your current email address so you and your child can join into Amy’s videos and activities. Recently we had a scavenger hunt, an art show and a LEGO building contest. Check out our Facebook page to see some examples of what KidsZone has been doing during the quarantine.

KidsZone (grades 1 – 5) – online on Sundays 10:15 -10:45am (between services)

Ollie’s Treehouse (for pre-schoolers) –  online on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:00am

KidsZone checkin – online on Thursdays at 3:30pm. This is an opportunity for the kids to chat with each other and play some games.

Kidszone Values

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

What Do We Teach?

Our curriculum “First Look” & “252 Kids”  is published by reThinkGroup.org  and uses a comprehensive strategy for every age from birth through graduation.  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 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.

Register

Welcome New Families!

If you are new to North River we invite you to arrive 10 minutes early before the service starts. You may want to preregister your children by downloading our registration form (click on button below) before arriving. For our preschoolers the fun begins at 9am or 11am!  Infant and Toddler rooms are located straight through the lobby on the main level. PreK/K is in classroom E on the main floor. Grades 1-5 begin the morning in the service upstairs in the Worship Center with their parents and then meet their teachers in the lobby at announcement time. All of our teachers are CORI checked, interviewed, and have background references. Training is provided and they are awesome!!

We ask that you pick up your children promptly after the service is over in these locations: PreK & K  in Classroom E on the main floor, Grades 1-5 in the KidsZone Worship Center (Lower Level).

All parents must fill out a registration form before their child attends class for the first time.
