Kids Ministry

Connecting Kids to Christ

We tap into the way kids are naturally wired by engaging them with awesome music, fun games, and age appropriate Bible teaching.  We help them discover who God is, how he sees them, and how much he loves them.  We explore how we are an active part of a life long adventure with Jesus.  We empower kids to trust God, experience him in their daily lives, and share him with others.

This Month in ArkPark. . .

God made us for love—the greatest love. He made that clear when He sent His Son, Jesus, to show us how to give and receive His love.

When Jesus walked the Earth, He was God’s love in the flesh. Jesus showed us time and time again that He loves us. That’s why our focus this month is the powerful truth Jesus loves me. We were all made for His love! And that is why we chose The Big Sandbox for the theme. We want every child to know that Jesus is their friend and He is inviting them—all of them—to join Him, because He loves them. Everyone can play in The Big Sandbox!

In a world where people and circumstances can easily make a person feel unloved, it is our desperate prayer that we can equip our preschoolers with the powerful truth that Jesus loves me. We want our preschoolers to live life knowing and believing—never doubting—that they are loved by the greatest love, and nothing will ever change that. After all, this is what they were made for—they were made for His love.

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN KINDNESS AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Because of His love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit. And when you show kindness to others, you give them a glimpse into the heart of God, and how much God loves them. Kindness should be a characteristic of people who follow Jesus. Not only did Jesus model kindness, but He also commanded it. He taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated.

Memory Verse:

“YOU ARE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE. YOU ARE HOLY AND DEARLY

LOVED. SO PUT ON TENDER MERCY AND KINDNESS AS IF THEY

WERE YOUR CLOTHES. DON’T BE PROUD. BE GENTLE AND PATIENT.”

COLOSSIANS 3:12, NIRV

Bottom Line:

SHOWING OTHERS THEY ARE VALUABLE BY HOW YOU TREAT THEM
