KidStory

Welcome to KidStory!

Every Sunday all children (babies through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are so passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand that we create custom age groups for them where they can learn that their story matters!

We would love to see you and your family visit. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!

Your First Visit!

Look for the area designated for first-time families. We will meet your family, check your child into our database system, and one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

We will ask for the following personal information: family members’ names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.

Nursery (0-1 Year)

We create a safe, clean, and welcoming environment to help your baby know they are loved and cared for. We work very hard to develop trust with you and your baby so you can enjoy the morning service knowing your little one is receiving personal loving care in a safe place!

Explorers (2 Years)

We love helping our 2-year-olds learn new thing and this environment gives them the opportunity to play with others, sing fun songs, and start learning more about Jesus! Explorers is a place where we introduce these three basic truths we hope all children will embrace: God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever! This is a stage where they are starting to discover so many new things and it’s our goal to guide them with love and consistent boundaries while creating a safe and caring place for them to grow.

Small Wonders (3-5 Years)

Preschoolers love to learn and Small Wonders provides learning experiences that involve all the senses. Preschoolers will participate in Bible story time, snack, worship time, and meaningful playtime and crafts that help them apply their Bible story. During story time your kids will be learning that:

  • GOD MADE ME
  • GOD LOVES ME
  • JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER

Preschoolers think like artists. They relate to an invisible God they can imagine. The One who designed the animals and created the flowers, the One who made them, and knows everything about them, who keeps them safe, and who loves them. Our goal in Small Wonders is to ignite their imagination, activate their senses, and structure their experience so they have a safe and embracing place to explore God’s truth and grow.

Power Up (K-5th Grade)

Power Up is for kids kindergarten through 5th grade and is located on our 2nd floor. Our volunteers help kids take their next steps toward Jesus in a fun and engaging environment. In our large group gathering, kids sing, dance and listen to incredible, age-appropriate Bible stories. In our small group settings, kids begin building lasting friendships and leaders help them apply the Bible Story to kids’ everyday life through fun activities and meaningful discussions.

The curriculum is designed to shape identity through planting these three basic truths in the heart of every elementary-age child:

  • I NEED TO MAKE THE WISE CHOICE. (WISDOM)
  • I CAN TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT. (FAITH)
  • I SHOULD TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WANT TO BE TREATED. (FRIENDSHIP)

The story of God reveals the character of God. That’s why our program is organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them. Every month presents a new Life App to help children discover more about God’s character. And each Life App is unpacked through a weekly Bottom Line—a short phrase so easy to remember that it can be reinforced at home throughout the week.

Our goal is for every child to leave being able to say 2 things: I learned something today and I had fun! We realize that parents are the primary influence on their child’s faith and we want to partner with parents to see their child take a next step in their personal faith story!
