Connect Kids


Reconnect Plan for Kids

We are taking extra precautions in our Kids environments. Here are a few of the changes you can expect as you join us on Sunday mornings:

Connect Kids cares about: Health

· Masks must be worn by all children 3 and older

· Masks must be worn by all Connect Kids leaders

· All kids and leaders will be temperature-checked before entering children’s areas

· Hand sanitizer will be administered to children three years and older prior to entering classrooms

· Hand sanitizer stations have been installed throughout the children’s areas

· Wellness policy will be posted throughout children’s areas

· If your child is not well, please worship from home

· No snacks will be provided at this time


Connect Kids cares about: Spacing

· Children’s check-in/check-out will occur on the patio at the bottom of the stairs to prevent congestion in the upstairs hallway

· Preschool check-in/check-out remains the same

· Maintain 6 feet of spacing during drop-off, pick-up, and in the classrooms

· New classroom setups for optimal spacing of children


Connect Kids cares about: Cleaning

· Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all rooms

· Surfaces wiped down as needed during the class

· Toys washed continually during service (preschool area)

Welcome to Connect Kids! Our mission is to partner with parents on their journey to disciple their children. We offer large group and small group learning experiences, discipleship classes, family events, and lots of fun! Our leaders love children and it is our honor to serve you. We hope that you will join us and find a place to connect.

Connect Kids has both large-group and small-group opportunities for your child each Sunday. This includes interactive small-group classes for Kindergarten through 5th grade using the FaithWeaver NOW curriculum. We also provide a large-group worship experience using the same weekly passage and theme, but different hands-on Bible activities using the companion KidsOwn Worship curriculum. Our leaders are dedicated to providing a fun experience for your child that is welcoming, nurturing, and safe. We hope to see you soon!

AWANA is a fun way for kids to learn about God through the Bible. Each age group has its own age-appropriate AWANA club.

The name Awana is an acronym that stands for approved workmen are not ashamed. It is taken from the Bible in II Timothy 2:15 which reads, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn't need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth." (HCSB) As one of the fastest growing youth organizations, Awana provides a local church-sponsored program for boys and girls of all ages. Our hope is that all club members will develop faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and then build on that foundation to become obedient servants of God.

Mothers of Preschoolers

MOPS reaches out to moms with children from infancy through preschool. MOPS groups seek to build communities of women that meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS believes that better moms make a better world!

Mothers of School-Age Children

MOMSnext is a group experience designed to encourage, equip and develop mothers of school-age children.  This group allows women with older children to get/stay connected with other moms journeying through the same season of life.
