For children up to 24 months
We offer a top-notch Nursery to all infants each Sunday. The Nursery can be found immediately off the Gathering Area as you walk into the church. Pagers are offered to all parents for peace of mind and security purposes.
For children age 2 through 5th grade
Sunday mornings are a great time for children to learn about God's love through Bible stories, singing, and fun activities. Our designated time for children is at 9:30 in the Children's Ministry Building. This year we will continue with rousing songs, great skits and puppets to help teach Bible truths, along with a caring crew of teachers who continue the learning process with games and crafts.
Parents and children will enter through the side entrance of the Children’s Ministry Building. They can arrive as early as 9:20 to get settled in for that day's fun. If your child is new to Kid Zone or has been coming for awhile, please make sure we have accurate information.
Children are to be picked up promptly at 10:30 so that everyone can get to worship on time. Each week children will bring home a sheet with that day's Bible point and ideas of how parents and children can continue the learning.
Want to learn more about Kid Zone? Contact Caroline Gray at Caroline.Gray@ThirstyforJesus.org and you will get the scoop on how our kids are learning about Jesus and His love.
Milestone Celebrations are a special way that the church can walk alongside parents, equipping them with tools to help build up their family in their faith journey. Each Milestone Celebration will invite a different age group of children and their parents to introduce a -perhaps new- faith disciple into their daily family life. From birth through Confirmation we hope to continue to encourage faith talks at home within every family of our church.
At every Celebration families will be encouraged by other families in their same stage of life, hear about various opportunities the church offers for spiritual growth for parents and children, and every family will receive a special gift that they can take home and begin using together to grow in faith. Each year we will introduce a new Milestone Celebration; they build off of one another, year after year. Last year we began with the “Blessing Shower” for parents with newborns. In 2013 we will have the “Blessing Shower”, a “Family Huddle” for families with 2 and 3 year old children, and a “Welcome to our Church” party for 2nd graders.
If you have children in these age groupings, please look for your invitation close to the Milestone Celebration event date. For questions or more information, please contact Caroline Gray at Caroline.Gray@thirstyforJesus.org
