We believe it’s important for families to worship God together with those of all ages and seasons of life. Our corporate worship time fits the dynamics of a multi-generational church – and children are welcomed voices in our praise.
During our 10:45 service, following the worship time and prior to the message, parents will have the opportunity to bring their preschool to Kindergarten age child to CastleKids Children’s Church. Our workers will provide a hands-on learning environment in which Bible lessons and activities are designed to meet the needs and abilities of this active age group.
When is my child ready to attend CastleKids?
If your child is…
•between the ages of three-years-old through Kindergarten
•comfortable being away from mom and dad without crying
•has no fever or runny nose
…he or she is ready to join us for CastleKids and have fun learning about God.
When and where does CastleKids meet?
CastleKids Children’s Church meets in Room 201-S. (Follow the stairs located just outside the south sanctuary.)
Parents must escort their child to his or her Small Group area to check-in. As with our other Children’s Ministries, CastleKids are assigned a SafeKid ID number and tag. Parents will be given the corresponding SafeKid ID card at check-in. The ID card must be shown in order for the child to be dismissed at the close of the service when parents return for their child.
What will my child do during CastleKids?
CastleKids Children’s Church reinforces and reviews the valuable lessons taught in Sunday School. We have customized our program and curriculum to create a common thread that runs through all of our Sunday morning Children’s Ministries. This provides a unique opportunity to build on a central theme for greater application and retention.
• Small Group - After check-in, children remain at their tables for an activity that focuses on the Bible lesson. Small Group activities include games, crafts, snacks, and interactive discussion. This time allows each child the opportunity to interact and build friendships with an adult leader and six to eight of their peers. Children will be dismissed to Large Group then later return to their Small Group tables for a brief activity as they wait for parents to arrive at the close of the service.
• Large Group – Small Groups come together for a time of kid-friendly worship through singing, prayer, and participation in the Bible Story. Activities and lessons are presented using multi-sensory teaching. Children stay engaged because they not only hear God's Word but also see, touch, taste, smell, and get involved in the learning process.
