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 “Christmas Unwrapped”. The Christmas story isn’t just about the birth of a baby. It’s about the arrival of the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace promised in the book of Isaiah. In this series, kids will explore the Christmas story and discover why “Jesus matters to me.”
Unit Verse: For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on his shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
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.
A counselor is someone who you can turn to for advice, for a shoulder to lean on, for help with your problems. A counselor is there for you. Jesus is our wonderful counselor; he is there for us. Jesus is God with us.
Scripture: Isaiah 9:6-7, A Child Is Born & Matthew 1:18-23, Immanuel
Kids will learn they can go to Jesus with any challenge because he is their Wonderful Counselor.
When the angel told Mary that she would give birth to Jesus, she thought that it couldn’t be possible. But the angel reminded her “nothing is impossible with God.” When we face hard times or confusing things, we can turn to Jesus. Jesus is our Mighty God; nothing is impossible for him.
Scripture: Luke 1:26-38, The Angel Visits Mary
Kids will learn they can trust in Jesus, because he is a Mighty God.
When something is everlasting, it means that it will never end. When King Herod learned that Jesus had been born, he knew his kingdom was coming to an end, so he tried to stop Jesus. Jesus loves us like a good father, and we can take comfort knowing that Jesus’ love and Jesus’ kingdom will never end.
Scripture: Matthew 2:1-16, The Magi and King Herod
Kids will learn they can put their hope in Jesus because he is their Everlasting Father.
Prince of Peace
When the angels told the shepherds that Jesus had been born, they said that He would bring peace. Even though we will have hard times, and sad times, if we bring our troubles and worries to God, He will bring us peace.
Scripture: Luke 2:1-20, The Shepherds
Kids will learn they can find rest in Jesus because he is their Prince of Peace.
Memory Verse: “I will give my people hearts that are completely committed to me. I will give them a new spirit that is faithful to me.” Ezekiel 11:19a NIRV
Lesson: Zacchaeus had lots of money but no friends. He’d chosen a poor path in life, he was very unhappy, and he didn’t know how to fix it. Then Zacchaeus met Jesus and Jesus showed Zacchaeus how to hit the reset button. Jesus will let us reset because loves us and wants the best for us. If we trust Jesus, He will give us a fresh start!
Scripture: Luke 19:1-10, Zacchaeus meets Jesus
Kids will ask God to help them reset one thing in their life they want to make right this new year.
