SUNDAYS ARE FOR KIDS






    Kids Connection resumes in the fall. Sign up now on the registration tab. Stay connected over the summer with new videos and Bible stories available below.

    KIDS CONNECTION THIS FALL

    This fall, beginning Sunday, September 12 at 10am, we'll be restarting in-person Kids Connection for ages 3 through 6th grade!  We're excited to gather and provide a caring and welcoming space for our kids to come each week. There are a number of new procedures parents will need to know.

    • Parents will be asked to check in kids prior to worship at a station near the stairs. 
    • Kids Connection will start at the same time as worship (10am) and will begin in our designated kids ministry spaces, apart from worship.
    • We love having kids in worship and sharing kids messages, but as we begin the fall with the Delta variant, keeping Kids Connection separate from worship will provide additional safeguards and peace of mind for families. This plan is an outgrowth of conversations and surveys completed with families. We will continue to evaluate this as the year progresses.
    • Volunteers will walk parents and children to their classroom so they know where to go. Parents will pick up kids from their classroom at the end of worship each week.
    • Kids and all adults will be required to wear face masks.
    • As we've all become accustomed, if you or your child are experiencing COVID-related symptoms, we will ask you to remain at home for the designated quarantine period.
    • For those who are not ready to attend in person, we will continue to make online Kids Connection available. 

    We look forward to gathering again and providing a safe and welcoming environment for our families this fall! Contact Chelsea Maher for information about in-person and online Kids Connection this fall.

      This week, we finish our story about Nehemiah. He took initiative when he saw that the wall of Jerusalem needed to be rebuilt. God did some amazing things to help Nehemiah succeed. This week at Kids Connection, we will talk about how we can look for ways to celebrate what God has done in our lives.

      It is easy to get distracted from what needs to be done. This week at Kids Connection, we continue with the story of Nehemiah. There were many things that Nehemiah could have been distracted by when he set out to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. However, he was able to stay focused on what was important.

      What do you do when you see someone being treated unfairly? It's easy to let ourselves think, "Someone else will help them so I don't have to." This week at Kids Connection we will be talking about how we can take the initiative to help those in need. We will hear a story of Nehemiah and how he helped those who were being treated unfairly when no one else would help.

    • sunday, september 5

      This month we are talking about initiative. Initiative is seeing what needs to be done and doing it. Watch this week’s Kids Connection video to find out how Nehemiah took initiative and got others to do the same.

    PAST SERIES

    • august series

      In August we talked about how to be wise and found examples of wisdom in the Bible.

    • july series

      Did you know that, even when you are in a room without any other people, you are not alone? God is always with you. 

    • june series

      Hear  the words of John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, for everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." 


      When we hear these words, we can be confident because we can see just how deep God's love is for us.

    • may series

      Anyone who has participated in a long-distance race knows that most people cannot wake up on the morning of the race and be successful without training. Races require training and preparation. Faith is the same way. There are many different things we can do to strengthen our faith. During May we talked about different spiritual practices, such as prayer, meditation, generosity, and serving, that can be used to strengthen our faith.

    WHY SHOULD WE JUST LET THEM PLAY?
