IMPORTANT UPDATE: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our physical building will be closed on Sundays. Rather, we invite you to participate in our gatherings by tuning in via Facebook Premiere on Sundays at 10am. You can read more about our church’s response to COVID-19 here. We are continuing to hold a Bible study for Elementary School children on Sundays at 9am over Zoom, as well as Connection Times and a Storytime every week. Click here to learn about our online kids programs while our church building is closed.
Our Sunday Village Kids classes is for children from birth to 5th grade. If you would like info on our programs for children above 5th grade, see our Youth Events page.
At Village Kids, we aim to provide a fun environment for your children as they learn about Jesus in a fresh and inspiring way. We don’t view Village Kids as babysitting—we view it as opportunities to relationally and spiritually invest in the futures of our children.
Keeping our kids safe is our top priority. We background check all of our Village Kids volunteers, and we ensure that they all understand our safety and security policies and procedures.
During most Sundays we have Village Kids classes available, but sometimes we like to mix things up by incorporating children into the Sunday service in all-family worship services. There is a Village Kids sign in our lobby that indicates whether there are classes that day.
Our nursery is available for babies who can sit on their own to toddlers two years old. Guardians can sign their children in starting at 9:45 am before service and sign them out after service. We kindly ask that all children in the nursery are up-to-date on vaccinations. We offer puffs, Goldfish, and Cheerios. Guardians can specify which snacks, if any, their children can eat. Nursery workers will not change diapers but will notify guardians if a diaper change is needed.
Early Elementary & Upper Elementary
We ask that all children preschool to 5th grade join their families for the beginning of the worship service upstairs. During the fellowship and greeting time (about 20-30 minutes into the service), guardians are invited to escort their children downstairs to sign them into one of two classrooms: Early Elementary (Preschool-2nd grade) and Upper Elementary (3rd-5th grade). During these classes, there will be Bible lessons from The Gospel Project curriculum, games and activities, and snacks. The Upper Elementary class will rejoin the church for communion at the end of each service, and guardians can sign them out at the front left pews. The Early Elementary class will be signed out after the end of service.
