Connect Kids, Jr.

Each week, we introduce your littlest ones to the wonder and Word of God through age-specific lessons, Bible stories, music, and activities!  


WHAT TO EXPECT

The safety of your children is our first priority! All outside doors remain locked during services, a trained security team is on hand, and no one can pick up your child without the matching tag received at sign-in.


On Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, parents will check-in their children at the Connect Kids Kiosk, and then drop them off at their classroom.    Safety is a top priority for us, and we want to provide the best care for your child while they are with us!


Upon check-in, you'll receive matching identification stickers. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion and you will need to keep the matching tag. After the service, you'll show the classroom leader your matching tag in order for your child to be released from his/her room.


In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will send send you a text message. We ask that you immediately come to your child's classroom.  


WHAT WE TEACH

We use the Bible App for Kids Curriculum by LifeKids on Sundays and Wednesdays for 2 year olds-Kindergarten.  Early childhood education research shows that preschoolers learn best through repetition, so each month features one main Bible story and verse, with new discussions and activities each week to keep things fun and engaging.  


Each lesson consists of:

  • Playing with Purpose
  • Engaging discussions
  • Bible App Video episode
  • Music and movement
  • Bible story telling
  • Hands-on activities

On Sundays, your child will bring home an Adventure Book from that day's lesson.  Take some time each week to look at "Blinky's Family Challenge" on the back!


Interact with God's Word as a family by downloading the Bible App for Kids to your iPhone or tablet.  You will be amazed how much your children will be engaged in the stories!


BABIES

We believe one of the most important things we do at Connect is help build a foundation of love for God, His people, and His church for our children.  We create an environment for our children under 2 to be a place they feel safe, secure, and loved.  Children have opportunities for play, music and movement, and a snack.  Please bring a diaper bag clearly labeled with any special snacks, bottles/cups, diapers, and a change of clothes and make sure to let the classroom leader know of any special instructions at drop off. 


BABY & CHILD DEDICATION

Each year, we provide an opportunity for parents to publicly commit their children to the Lord in our Baby & Child Dedication service.  Baby D is on Mother's Day at all campuses.  For your family to participate in this special service, register here.
