KIDS

A Message from our Kids Ministry staff:

With your kids all at home, I’m sure you are wondering how to best keep them occupied while keeping them active, learning, and seeking the Lord. We hope we can help in the days and weeks to come!

We recommend you do three things first with your family:


  • Have a conversation about what is happening. Here are some resources that may be helpful to your conversation:
  1. 4 Tips for Talking to Your Kids About the Coronavirus by Josh Straub
  2. How Do We Talk About Tragedy With Our Kids? by Jamie Ivey
  3. 2 Ways to Calm Your Anxious Child by Josh Straub
  • Meet your neighbors and ask if they have any needs. If they do, help meet the needs! For the first time ever, we ALL have something in common, both believer and unbeliever. Let’s use this opportunity to meet our neighbors and show the love of God to them!
  • Do something fun with your family each day, even if it is small or quick. Your kids can definitely pick up on what you are feeling even without saying anything. So be sure to show them that you are trusting God in all of this by being able to turn off the news, put your phone down, and have some good (maybe even goofy) fun.
We hope that during this time of social distancing, you will spiritually connect with God, your family/LifeGroup, and your neighbors. We hope to give you ideas throughout each week on our social media, so be sure to follow us so you don’t miss anything.
On Sundays, please use the following resources to include your kids in family worship! We will add a LifeGroup lesson, a Kids Worship video, and a listening guide that will accompany Pastor’s sermon.
We would love for your family to worship with you while you watch the sermon each Sunday morning. Either print out the listening guide or use ours to create your own on paper at your house! Even if it seems like your kids are in their own world, they are listening! Use the LifeGroup and Kids Worship resources to create some normalcy for your kids on Sundays.
