PRESCHOOL SHIFT KIDS:


Welcome to MAY! 


This month our Preschool Shift Kids will be learning about "Abraham's Big Test" using the Bible App for Kids curriculum.  Below you will find the links to the video lesson, the Parents Guide and the weekly Adventure Book. This is the curriculum we use on Sundays, so kids will enjoy going on this Bible Adventure with their "friends" - Miss Emily, Star, Mr Music and Guy the Bible guy!

WELCOME to Shift Kids

learning to love god and love others

(birth - 5th grade)

We believe that Jesus really does “love the little children” and we are so blown away by the fact that He has given us the privilege of sharing His love with each and every child that walks through the doors! 


From the moment they enter the room, we are committed to making sure that each child knows that Jesus loves them and we do, too! During the time they are involved in Sunday morning activities children will hear truths taught from God’s Word through live teaching and multi-media. They will also participate in games and activities that reinforce the truths taught and help children apply those truths to their lives! 


Activities planned for Shift Kids throughout the year include Rangers Club during the school year, Fun Friday events, and day camp during the summer. Please check back at this web site as well as the Shift Kids Facebook page and Instagram for more information!

SUNDAYS with Shift Kids

On Sunday Mornings, Shift Kids meet in small groups depending on age and grade.


All students are to be checked in by the adult that brings them, who will be given a number that corresponds to the number on their student’s name tag. Students will be released to the adult that brings that number back and gives it to the teacher.


Click here for our wellness policy.


1st and 2nd GATHERING

All students from birth - 5th grade will check in at the area to the left as you enter.


EARLY CHILDHOOD (Birth - 5yr)

NURSERY: birth - 2yr olds. This room is around across from the restrooms.

  TODDLERS Class is for 2yrs - 3 1/2 yrs old and is located to the right of check in area.

Again, welcome and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your children’s lives.

RANGERS

The Rangers program is an activity-based, small group church ministry for young men and women in grades 1st-5th. Our mission is to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christlike men and women and lifelong servant leaders. We provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for kids in a highly relational and fun environment.


The Rangers program is a cross-generational ministry that interconnects well with children, youth and adult ministries and fits easily into the fabric of pastoral vision and into the flow of church ministries. We affirm the hands-on, interactive learning style by featuring an intentional discipleship journey for young people based on their unique design, needs and interests. Every meeting, outing or service activity is designed to encourage boys and girls and commanders in their walk with God.
