Kid’s Church – 3yr to 5th grade


Kingdom Kids @ The Vineyard

Kid’s Church has two classrooms: 3yr – 5 yr olds and 1st – 5th grade. The younger class is located in B5 of the B wing. The older class is in the upstairs of the C wing.

Dear Parents,

We would like to welcome you to Kingdom Kids at the Vineyard! We are so honored to be able to spend time with your children and share with them. We hope your kids find Kids Church to be a fun and secure place to learn about God’s love and the exciting and adventurous plan he has for their lives. This brochure will tell you a little about our ministry, and of course our children’s leadership team is here to serve you, so please feel free to talk with one of our teachers or send us an email if you have questions or needs.

Sunday Service and Kids’ Church

Our Sunday Service starts with worship in the sanctuary. Having our children with us during worship allows them to see us worshiping God with all our hearts. Kids are also free to sit, dance, or play instruments down front as they worship the Lord in their own special ways. Parents may join their kids down front as well, or keep an eye on them from their seats.

After worship, we ask that you escort your children to their kids’ church classroom and sign them in using our check in procedures. After the service ends, please return to the classroom to sign your child out, being sure to return your numbered ticket. This ensures that our kids are secure and safe during their time with us.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers make Kingdom Kids work! Most are long-term church members who have kids or grandkids in the ministry themselves. Others simply love ministering to kids. To ensure a safe environment, there are always at least two volunteers with the children at all times in each class.

We are always eager to meet new potential volunteers for kids’ church. If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please email our children’s ministry coordinator at kidschurch@vineyardgainesville.org

 

What goes on in here?

We do our best to keep kids active and engaged as they hear about the good news of Jesus’ love for them. On any given Sunday, we might play games, hear stories and object lessons, learn memory verses, play on the playground, make a craft, hear from a puppet friend, engage in a service project, or learn about how kids live in another part of the world.

Discipline

We do our best to encourage good behavior in our classes with praise and rewards. However, if a child’s behavior becomes a problem, the child will first be verbally warned, and second put in ‘time out’ in a chair in the classroom. If  poor behavior persists, we will contact you in church using your parent alert number or through your cell phone to come and pick up your child early.

 

We look forward to serving you and your children!

Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
