Sunday Mornings in JKids
Here's what to expect for your kiddos on a Sunday morning...
nursery (0-24 months)
We want your family to have a wonderful Nursery experience as we partner in your little one's faith development. Our Nursery strives to be a place where each child feels safe and parents are comfortable leaving their precious little one.
Our ratio of caring adults ensures each child's needs will be personally met as he or she begins to discover the wonderful love of Jesus.
The health and safety of your child is one of our primary concerns. We're committed to keeping our Nursery clean and sanitary.
Preschool (ages 2-5)
3 Basic Truths: Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths. We use a curriculum that is constructed to meet your preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age-appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten, they know these three basic truths:
1. God Made Me
2. God Loves Me
3. I Am Part of God's Story
Studies have shown that over half of "churched" kids will walk away from their faith in college. That's a disturbing statistic for both parents and the church. Studies have also shown that when kids consistently have someone of spiritual influence investing in their lives, they are more likely to develop a lifelong authentic faith.
As a church, we begin the process in JourneyKids where we empower and equip leaders to invest in the lives of a few kids in a small group setting. Small group leaders strategically focus on reaching just a few kids with the goal of raising them up into an authentic faith. We call this leading small.
We want every elementary student who comes to JourneyKids to have a person of spiritual influence, a small group leader, whom they can identify by name and who will consistently inspire them to follow after Christ.
SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM
If you have a child with special needs, we desire to come alongside you to provide just the right experience for your child on Sunday mornings. We believe that every individual is precious to God and made with a unique purpose. We offer a loving and safe environment that is tailored to the individual needs of each child.
Although we provide a self-contained special needs classroom, our goal is to include each child in an environment with their peers. We do this by using a "buddy system" These buddies are trained to assist your child in class, help with activities, and adapt to the program as needed.
If you are a parent of a child with special needs, and you are interested in utilizing this ministry, our Special Needs Team Leader would love to meet with you to talk about your child's unique needs.
All teachers are required to submit to a thorough background check. We also have a full security team on the JKids floor during our Sunday services.
TAKE HOME CHALLENGE
Each week, children age 3 years through 4th grade receive a “Take Home Challenge.” This worksheet enables you, at home, to review the week’s Bible story, explain the main theme of the story in a context your kids can better understand, and enable them to live out their developing faith in their everyday life. Complete and return this homework, and your child will receive a credit to spend our JKids Store.
Did the homework but forgot the paper? Just tell your child’s teacher, and we’ll give your child his/her credit for completing the work.
