Here in Kingdom Connection Children’s Ministry our mission is to establish an environment ripe for encountering Father God and to train up children that are rooted and grounded in Christ’s love. We strive to present the gospel in exciting ways to develop true disciples of Christ, a “Daniel Generation”. It is our desire that every child will be encouraged, loved, equipped and changed for the glory of God and for the advancement of His Kingdom. Whether that be through laying a solid foundation in the Word of God or by sparking a spiritual fire through worship and prayer, we are determined to see our children grow in their personal relationships with Christ. We love to have fun learning together!
Every Sunday morning and Wednesday night we provide a safe environment for children from birth through sixth grade where they learn about Jesus and connect with each other.
Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry, and it’s an honor to serve with each and every one of them as they love on children each week! Every volunteer who leads in our Children's Ministry has had a background check and is committed to making the ministry a safe, Biblically relevant, and fun environment for your children.
"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court."
Each service your child will need to be checked into our Children's Ministry. After praise, the children will be released to their age-specific classroom. A volunteer will check-in your child on the Kidddo app. The app stores information regarding the children's ages and specific allergies. When you return at the end of service you will check-out your child with the teacher.
Thank you so much for helping us as we strive to make our Children's Ministry a safe environment for your children to learn about God.
The unit we are currently teaching the children is called “Books of the Bible”. Each week kids will learn about a few books of the Bible along with some simple hand motions to help them recall the books quickly. The goal is that by the end of the 12 weeks, kids will not only be able to say all 66 books of the Bible from memory but they will also have a general idea of the bigger story God is trying to teach us through His Word.
Unit Verse: Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Proverbs 30:5
Below there is a PDF containing the full lesson plan we will be using to teach your kids each week of this month. Parents, you can use this to teach your children if you miss a Sunday or use it to review with your children throughout each week.
How Many Books in The Good Book?
Jesus is always the example we look towards for how to live life. One of the first stories recorded about Jesus shows us that Jesus took time to learn and memorize Scripture. Because of that, Jesus was able to use the verses he had memorized to fight off temptation! One of the ways we can be like Jesus and begin to store God’s Word in our heart, is by knowing what God has included in the Bible and where we can find it.
Kids will learn how many books are in the Bible (66), how many are in the Old Testament (39) and how many are in the New Testament (27).
Scripture: Psalm 119:11, Matthew 4:1-10
The Law Books
The first five books of the Bible tell us how God created the world from nothing. We also see that everything God made was good and perfect. But it didn’t take long for sin to enter the world. Sin is anytime we disobey God. Sin made the perfect world God had made not perfect anymore. In the book of Exodus God gave his people the 10 Commandments to show them all the things they would have to do to try to be perfect. God knew that no one would be able to keep all of those rules perfectly though, so he was already working on a bigger plan to get rid of sin forever.
Kids will memorize the first 5 books: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy
Scripture: Genesis 1:1-5, Genesis 3:1-6, Exodus 20:1-17
The History Books
The books of history tell us what happened to God’s people when they inherited the Promised Land and what happened when they forgot about God. These books are filled with many exciting stories that all have the same basic message: obey God and you can overcome any obstacle just like David or disobey God and you will surely fail like Saul.
Kids will memorize the next 12 books: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther
Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:4-11 and 32-49, 1 Samuel 28:17-18
Poetry & Wisdom Books
These 5 books are packed full of practical advice for how to live God’s way, as well as beautiful verses describing how amazing, awesome, powerful, loving and good God is. When you are looking for a book to read when you wake up each day or before you go to bed at night, Psalms and Proverbs are great options.
Kids will memorize the next 5 books: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon
Scripture: Psalm 119:11
The Major Prophets were men who delivered God’s messages to his people. Their books and their lives remind us that no matter what the situation we should always keep our eyes and our lives focused on God. They also remind us that even when things seem dark around us, God is always in control, we just have to be patient and wait for his perfect timing.
Kids will memorize the next 5 books: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel
Scripture: Daniel 6:3-23
Jonah is probably the most famous of the Minor Prophets. Being swallowed by a fish is a pretty memorable story. But Jonah’s story isn’t just a big fish story. Like all of the Minor Prophets, Jonah’s story points us towards our need for repentance and God’s forgiveness. In the story of Jonah, we see examples of repentance by both Jonah and the people of Nineveh. We see an example of Jesus’ sacrificial death when Jonah is swallowed by the fish for three days to save the crew from the storm. And we also see that God’s forgiveness is freely given to those who don’t deserve it.
Kids will memorize the next 12 books and be able to say all the books in the Old Testament: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi.
Scripture: Jonah 1 and Jonah 3
