Kids Lesson

Little Village / Kids Village Reopening Guide

Parents/Guardians will verbally confirm at check-in that the parent and child do not have a fever, signs and symptoms of illness, or have been in close contact with others who have tested positive for COVID-19.
Check-in will take place in Connection Central on kiosks with the help of volunteers. The way to enter for check-in is through the double glass doors on the side of the building.
Social distancing cues (maintaining a 6 foot distance from one another) will be located throughout the Children's Ministry space. Room capacities will be adjusted to always allow 6 feet of distance between each child. Volunteers will monitor social distancing as best they can.
For children, masks are encouraged, but not required. For adults, masks are required at all times.
All classrooms, surfaces, and toys will be cleaned and disinfected after each use with CDC and EPA approved products.
No snack time or bottle feeding will be provided during Little Village at this time. Please conduct bottle feedings before or after pick up. Water will be provided as needed.
If your child requires belongings during their stay in Little Village or Kids Village, please place all items in a ziplock bag with their name written on the bag. Please refrain from bringing a backpack, diaper bag or any outside food.
Children's Ministry will take place during the 11:15 a.m. service only. This will give us adequate time to meet with volunteers beforehand, prepare the space for ministry, and allow for families to pick up their kids after the service without time constraint.

Family Worship Guide

We know this season will look unique for you as a family.  Our hope is that it will be a formative and fruitful time as you worship alongside your children on Sunday mornings.

Here is a guide that we pray is helpful:

Sing together

Break up the sermon into smaller chunks
  • Depending on the age of your children, they may only be able to listen to 10 minute chunks of the sermon at a time. 
  • Based off of the sermon text for the week, have your children draw different aspects that are being talked about. Kids who are able to read and write can use the Sermon Notes for Kids as a guide. Use the Family Discipleship Glossary to help explain words that are unfamiliar in the text.

Talk about an attribute of God you heard in the sermon.
Talk about a foundational truth you learned in the sermon:
  • God is Good
  • God is in Charge of Everything
  • God Wants to Talk With Us
  • Jesus Came to Save Sinners
  • God Made Everything

Memorize Scripture together
Pray together. Talk through the parts of prayer as a family:
  • Confession: is telling the truth about your sin
  • Praise: is telling God how great He is
  • Request: is asking God for something
  • Thanksgiving: is thanking God for what He does and gives
