Kids Ministry

Infants to 5th Grade
Our Kids Ministry is committed to “Growing Children in Christ.” We believe every child should have the opportunity to “grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). Our desire is to help children grow to love Jesus, to live like Jesus and to live for Jesus!

Sunday Mornings & Security
We take the security of the children in our care very seriously. Parents, please stop by the Checkpoint Station at the entrance to the Education Wing and we will create a name badge for your child and assign them to the appropriate class. From there we can direct you to that class or answer any questions that you may have.

For more information about our seasonal events and our Sunday Bible Classes, please visit our Kids Ministry page.

Kids Sunday School

Kid’s Sunday School and Preschool classes are available at the 9:45 & 11:11 AM.

Take the Lead

The study series for May is “Take the Lead” — a series on The Judges!

Leaders take the lead. Like a drum major leading a marching band or the grand marshal at a parade, leaders are out in front showing others the way. Legendary leaders of the Bible like Deborah, Gideon, Samson, and Ruth will help kids see what leadership looks like and how they can become great leaders too. Young leaders will grow this month learning that God gives me courage to lead, helps me learn from mistakes, and gives me leaders I can follow. Everyone can be a leader, let’s take the lead together.

  • Deborah – Everyone can be a leader
  • Gideon – God gives me courage to lead
  • Samson – God helps me learn from my mistakes
  • Ruth – God gives me leaders I can follow
  • Hannah & Samuel – If I am willing, God can use me to lead

Memory verse for the month: And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

Kids Ministry classes meet at 9:45 and 11:11 AM every Sunday. Questions? Please contact Carrie Wiley.

Vacation Bible School

We’re so excited to announce the details for this year’s Vacation Bible School, “Monumental!” At Monumental VBS, kids will celebrate God’s greatness!

At Monumental, kids explore the sunbaked Southwestern desert as they dig into God’s great love! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with a Canyon Closing that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.

This year’s VBS is every Sunday evening beginning July 10 to August 7 from 6:00 to 8:15 PM!

Middle School :: MIX

MIX is for all Middle School students (grades 6-8 in the Fall) June 20-23 at Cedarville University in Cedarville, OH.

MIX is a four-day summer event specifically designed for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades. It is intentionally crafted in ways that will engage middle school students through tactile, interactive and fun activities coupled with Bible-based teaching and small group interaction.

MIX is an event that understands middle school students need their own experience. This age group is at a unique time in their lives – they’re growing and learning different than any other age group. They’re still young enough to need to play, but old enough to start understanding some core ideals that will stay with them the rest of their lives. For this reason, MIX isn’t designed for high school students, or for preteens. It’s specifically designed for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students – it’s their chance to be exactly who they are: to play, listen and learn as themselves.

The early bird cost is $225/student before April 30; includes transportation, lodging and food at the event. After April 30, the cost is $260/student. There is a $50 deposit required at the time of registration.

REGISTRATION ENDS ON MAY 25.

High School :: MOVE

MOVE is for all High School students (grades 9-12 in the Fall) on June 13-17 at Cedarville University in Cedarville, OH.

Located on college campuses across the nation, MOVE provides a program for 30,000 high school students every summer. Students are challenged through intense, interactive worship, dynamic preaching, small group study and community building.

Students at MOVE not only learn and worship together – they spend quality time with their church youth groups, discovering ways that God will use them to impact the world.

MOVE is more than just another conference or camp – it’s an experience! It’s an all-inclusive event providing food, lodging, recreational activities and an amazing program. Adult leaders are provided small group materials prior to the event, and then meet with CIY staff each morning to go over each day’s lesson. And MOVE curriculum is made available to all groups after the event. This includes curriculum that will take your students deeper into MOVE’s theme for four more weeks.

MOVE is committed to helping students take their mountaintop experiences beyond the event by challenging them to become Kingdom workers. To encourage that commitment, each student has the opportunity to open a Kingdom Worker Card on the last day of MOVE. On that card is a challenge to complete something over the next year, no matter how difficult the task. Click here to learn more about Kingdom workers.

The early bird cost for MOVE is $250/student before April 30; includes transportation, lodging and food at the event. After April 30, the cost is $285/student.  There is a $50 deposit required at the time of registration.

REGISTRATION ENDS ON MAY 20.

College-Age

Young Adults (18- to 23-years old)

Sunday Morning:
Our college-age students met at 9:45 in rm. 160 every Sunday morning. During this casual meeting, we use a discussion format to learn applicable teaching from God’s Word. Our college-age students are in the midst of all kinds of life transition and this group is a way to connect with people in the same phase of life! Our group also gathers throughout the year for events including summer cookouts, Christmas party, etc.

Our Young Adults group is not currently meeting on-campus. However, if you are in college, trade-school, or have begun work right after High School and would like to learn more about us and how we’re meeting now, please contact Patti Remaklus.
