Village Kids is our ministry designed especially for children six weeks through 5th Grade. Our children are divided into three groups: Nursery (six weeks through three years old), Preschool (three years old by August 15th of the current year through Kindergarten), and Elementary (1st grade through 5th grade).
What to expect on Sunday morning
Village Kids meets at 10 a.m. during The Village worship gathering. During their time together, they will laugh together, sing together, pray together, and creatively learn about the same Scripture and topic their parents are learning about in worship. See below for an example of a weekly "take-home sheet," designed to help parents and kids have conversations of faith at home. See below for examples of these take home sheets!
Checking In and Safety
When you enter Sunset Middle School, our Village Kids area is to the left. All children are checked in electronically prior to entering the Village Kids area. First time guests will work with a Check-In Greeter to get their children assigned to the appropriate class, and children will receive a special gift for joining us that morning.
All children are electronically checked in prior to going to their classrooms, and parents are provided a security sticker that matches the security number on their child(ren)’s nametag. Adults without an appropriate sticker will not be allowed into the Village Kids area.
All Village Kids employees and volunteers are experienced, trained, and have undergone a thorough background check. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Email us by clicking on the button below.
