Kids

Helping kids know, love and follow Jesus

Welcome to Faith Kids!

Faith Kids has a new Instagram page.  Follow us at FaithKids.fc to keep up with what your kiddos are doing here at Faith and fun things coming soon!

Beginning June 2nd, we will begin the FK SUMMER ACTIVITY ROOMS for grades 1st through 5th! What does this mean? In addition to large group worship and lesson, each weekend FK kids will have a choice of three Activity Rooms to check into each Sunday. Each weekend during the summer, and after check-in, your child will go to one of three rooms. Move-It, Guess-It, or Make-It. They will sign their name on the list on the podium and stay in that classroom. If the roster is full for that particular room, your child will have to pick another so the earlier you arrive, the more likely your child will get their desired room. 

 

Our hope is that this would add some additional fun for the summer months. Rooms will not be age or gender specific. This allows our kids to mix it up a bit and be with kids in different small groups throughout the year. It will engage differing personalities and learning styles and will provide a little extra space to explore, create and build their own community at church. 

 

Most of FK will function as normal. This summer we will be teaching our same curriculum. Your children will be dropped off in their selected room, they will all attend large group where they will hear teaching from the Bible and worship in song. After large group dismisses, each class will spend a shorter amount of time in small groups opening up and reading from the Bible.  After small groups, they will spend the remainder of time doing their fun activity and you can pick them up from the same room you dropped them off at! The main point of FK is still to teach about who God is and what He has done, we will just have a little bit more fun doing it this summer!

Summer Room Options:  

Please encourage your kids to have more than one room they would want to attend in case their favorite is full. 

Room 1 – Move It – Dodgeball, Gaga, Corn Hole, etc. 
Room 2 – Guess It– It’s different every week! The mystery is revealed each week at check-in
Room 3 –  Make It – One craft or project to do each week! Painting, bracelets, catapults. etc. 

Sample Summer FK Schedule: 

10:30-10:40  Fun activity Intro
10:40-11:10  Large Group (teaching and worship)
11:10-11:25  Small Group Fun Activity
11:25-11:30  Prayer and pick up 

Promotion Weekend

August 25 is Promotion Weekend, when kids will move up into the next grade in FK. This will mark the end of our summer activity rooms. Incoming Toddlers will join the upstairs Pre-school classroom, Kindergarteners will join the Elementary Ministry, and incoming 6th graders will officially move out of FK and into our Student Ministry.

Be a Kids Volunteer

In the Faith Kids ministry at Faith Church, our mission is clear:  to help children know, love and follow Jesus.  In order to accomplish this mission, we utilize the effort and talents of a large body of volunteers.  We love volunteers who want to invest their time and energy in order to see kids grow closer to Christ.  In starting this application process, you’ve begun considering what it would look like to invest your gifts, talents, and passions in the spiritual development of our children here at Faith.  My prayer is that you will grow in your own spiritual walk as you pour yourself into this vital ministry.

To ensure the highest level of safety and security for our children and staff, we require all volunteers over the age of 18 to complete the following application and background check.  Please take a few moments to provide all the requested information so that we may promptly place you in the role to which you’ve been called. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email.  I look forward to working with you!

Thanks again for considering how God is calling you to use your gifts for his Kingdom.  If it’s in Faith Kids making an eternal impact in the lives of our children, I’d absolutely love to have you on board!

Before you complete the Volunteer Application, please read our Statement of Faith HERE.

Power Praisers

Beginning January 28, 2024
Sundays  2:30 – 4:00pm
In the Big House

Do your kids love music, singing, acting and dancing?  Do you want to encourage them to worship and praise God from a very young age?  Do you want them to be a part of something that builds friendships in the family of God, spreads the good news of our Savior and have a whole lot of fun while doing it?

Faith Kids is in the beginning stages of creating a Children’s Music and Drama ministry named Power Praisers! Your kids will experience solos, speaking roles, singing, dancing and fun music themed activities to build character, friendships, faith and witness.  Our goal is to eventually be a part of Sunday morning worship on a consistent basis, put together 1-2 musicals a year and hopefully take music on the road and visit local nursing homes to give much needed love and witness to the elderly.

This ministry will be led by Melody Ketner and her daughter Harmony Andersen who have an overwhelming passion for Jesus, music and children. 

This ministry is for any child in kindergarten to 5th grade. We can’t do this and don’t want to do this without God’s blessing and guidance, so we’d ask for your prayers as we do the beginning leg work to invest in Faith Kids with music and drama.  We also do not want to do this without you and your kiddos.  Let us know if your kiddo(s) would like to invest a couple hours, one day a week to doing and building something incredible at Faith.  We look forward to bringing a fun new ministry and experience to the kids here at Faith!  Our plan is to hold Power Praisers on Sundays from 2:30 – 4:00pm in the Big House.
