“…Partnering with Families to Make Disciples Who Exalt Jesus Christ.”
WELL… THIS HAS BEEN AN INTERESTING SEASON!
SUMMIT KIDS is a weekly ministry for ages nursery through 5th grade that combines both large group teaching with small group application… when not in a pandemic, that is.
Typically you’d find several check-in stations in the lobby where you’d be able to securely check-in your children before our 10AM worship begins. At the close of our worship service, you’d take your check-out slip (issued when you checked-in) and head to your child’s room or the nursery for pick-up.
BUT… the COVID19 pandemic has required us to adapt the way we help families make disciples of their children.
Currently, we’re inviting families to worship together for our entire 10AM Sunday services. BUT, on the last Sunday of every month, we’re able to offer Summit Kids Ministry DURING the message portion of the service! On these special days, parents will need to visit the Summit Kids Check-In Station – before service begins – in order to enroll in that morning’s Summit Kids! Then, right before the message begins (about 10:40am), your kids will be dismissed to the lobby to meet their teachers.
We are aiming to return to being able to offer Summit Kids EVERY SUNDAY! We’ll keep you notified as we get closer to this time. (If you’d like to help us make this happen, email us… we’d love to chat!)
And until we can offer weekly Summit Kids, we believe that families worship together is a good thing! It gives our Summit Kids the opportunities to see their parents – and other families- worshiping Jesus, learning His Word and encouraging one another to trust and follow Jesus.
Here’s how we can help YOU, parents!
1. Your kids are a BLESSING to us. They are an important part of our church family and God gives them gifts to encourage all of us. Don’t worry about the noise they might make, or the inevitable “wiggling” in their sits they’ll perform. Need to take them for a walk at some point? You can watch and hear the service in our lobby, so feel free to take advantage of that resource if you need it!
2. We’re providing you with a weekly KIDS BULLETIN that you kids can work on during the service. (see the button on this page?) These will be printed and available in the lobby before services.
3. Our teaching pastors are continually working hard to find ways to engage the kids in our services. It’s a learning curve for all of us, but we’re committed to equipping the whole family for the work of ministry. Pray for us as we strive for this!
