Nursery (0-3 years)
During their time at City Kids, your child(ren) will hear a bible lesson with colorful pictures, pray, have snack time*, and enjoy lots of playtime. We believe, even at a very young age, that children learn from the things we say and do. When they hear about Jesus and see us praying to him, it plants a seed of Jesus’ love for us and how easily we can talk to Him.
Classroom (4 years – K)
In this class the children will be part of a bible lesson led by a puppet named Barkley. They are encouraged to answer questions related to the story, participate in a story related craft or color sheet, sing songs, and have constructive play time, and snack time*. We also have a memory time for this class. During this time children have an opportunity to recite their memory verse from their memory take home sheet given out the previous week.
Classroom (1st – 5th Grade)
In this class we provide a simple Bible reading for the children in the New Testament. Students will learn how to use the content page to find the book in the Bible. The goal is for them to get used to finding the book, chapter, and verse. If any student decides they would like to volunteer to read aloud they can. Each student will be given a worksheet so they can learn to highlight important words as well as how to make notes with just one or two words so they will be able to do this when they transfer to “big church”. We have a blank notebook to put down prayer requests and each week we will look back to highlight any answered prayers since the Old Testament calls us to “remember” the things God has done for us.
*Snacks are provided. If your child(ren) have a special diet please send a snack with them.
All City Kids, nursery and classroom students, have personal labeled cubbies.
Cubbies for the nursery are located in the nursery classroom itself. Parents of nursery aged children may use the cubbies as storage for their child(ren) for various supplies. For example, parents may leave extra diapers, blankets, or any other commonly used items for future Sundays. We do ask for fresh sippy cups each week to help with germs and cleanliness. If you bring a diaper bag it will be stored in their personal cubby.
Main classroom children have their cubbies located near the back stairs. Children may put coats and / or shoes into the cubbies during the City Kids’ service, or before service by using the back stairway by the restrooms. We ask that the parents please assist their child(ren) as they leave in removing all items from their cubbies. Take-homes will also be in the cubbies so please be sure to look for those as well. If items are left in cubbies for more than a month we will donate them.
