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.

Here’s what happens…

SAFE & FUN

Fun and engaging to kids on every level with exciting activities, trained volunteers and check in/out procedures.

BIBLE TEACHING

Experience the truth of God’s Word, prayer and worship in dynamic, relevant and engaging ways.

SMALL GROUPS

Encouraging spiritual growth through relationships, activities and discussion.

This Month in ArkPark. . .

This month is going to be Out of This World! We are going to use this fun and exciting theme to help teach preschoolers about the most amazing thing ever, which turns out isn’t a thing at all. No! He’s a person! You know who I’m talking about – Jesus! We are teaching preschoolers that Jesus is amazing! And, we’re doing it by sharing stories about some of Jesus’ amazing miracles.

Jesus displayed an amazing understanding of God when He was at the temple as just a young boy. The people who heard Him were amazed! Jesus calmed a storm with just a word. Amazing! Jesus filled fishermen’s nets with fish. Amazing! Jesus healed a blind man with mud and spit. Amazing!

This world, well this universe, is filled with amazing things, but nothing will ever be more amazing than the One who created it all. Jesus is amazing, and we want our preschoolers to know it!

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN RESPONSIBILITY AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY

The psalmist wrote, The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, (NIrV). God is the author of creation, and God has entrusted us to care for and cultivate it. We do that by taking responsibility. From the work we need to accomplish to people we meet to the words we use; life is filled with moments where we can decide to reflect God’s character, take responsibility, and use what we have wisely. When we follow through and do what needs to be done, we can point others to Jesus, the One who took the ultimate responsibility for us and made it possible for us to be with God forever.
