What do you have for my kids?
This is a fundamental question that many parents will need answered before they attend church for the first time. We want you to rest assured that we will do our best to love and care for you kids while you attend a church service.
At Living Faith our kids (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
Your first visit:
Handing your kids off to be cared for by strangers can be a terrifying prospect for parents. We want to ease that pressure for you. Here's what to expect when visiting Living Faith for the first time:
First, find the area marked for check-in. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room. Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone): parent/guardian name(s), child's name, child's birthdate, home address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children.
How check-in works:
After we enter your family information into our system, we will print your child a name tag and special sticker that has a matching number to your child’s name tag. You will keep that sticker and use it to check out your child at the end of the service. After check in is done, feel free to grab a cup of coffee, a donut hole, and a bulletin and relax knowing your kids are being cared for and taught about Jesus.
If for some reason your child needs you during the service, we will flash the number on your sticker on the screens. If this happens, don’t panic. Just calmly head toward the sound booth and one of our Children’s Ministry leaders will explain the situation and help you get to your child as quickly as possible.
Can I See My Kid’s Classroom?
All our classrooms are equipped with windows where you can ‘peak’ in on your kids if you feel the need to. We also offer a nursing mom’s room so moms can nurse and still see the service. We live feed the service to the lobby so if you need to check on your child you won’t miss anything.
0-2 Year Olds
We believe prayer and blessing children at this age can have profound impact on them. Teams of loving people will pray for your child and speak foundational truths of God to them while parents attend the church service. Through singing and interactive lesson time, the children learn to watch the leader and engage in learning.
2-3 Years Old
In this class, teams of people provide a loving atmosphere where the children can taste how good it can be to follow leaders and obey. Through engaging lessons and creativity, they learn character traits of God: He is good. He can do anything. He never changes…and more!
4-5 yEArS old
A team of watchful shepherds will provide a loving atmosphere where children learn to love learning more about who God is through lessons, small group sharing time and worship. They learn both Old Testament and New Testament accounts of what God is like.
A team of caring adults and youth will look to show children that getting to know God and His ways can be a fun thing. Through activities like worship, praying with others, studying and memorizing Scripture, our kids are discovering more of who God is.
As our kids grow bigger and taller, they also grow in their ability learn more about God. Through small group discussions, journaling, bible study, Scripture memorization and prayer, they are able to understand more about how God is at work in and around their lives. By this age, we value that our students are beginning to articulate their Gospel story and interact with how God is changing their heart to discover and treasure Jesus!
Kids on mission
Seeing God move through His people to reach the world, kids have a role to play in that mission. During “Kids on a Mission” Sunday, they will learn about local and global ministries and have chances to actively learn through skits and guest speakers and serve through activities and prayer, equipping them to live on mission.
We believe you are the primary faith nurturers of your children. Check out helpful resources and tools for parents as you invest in the next generation for the glory of God. Here you'll find our Parent Summit archives, baby dedication, Milestones and steps to leading your kids in communion.
Children’s Ministry Partners
JOIN THE TEAM
Forming healthy households is one of our core values. To do that well, we be believe that families and churches will be better through partnering together. Children's Ministry workers are ordinary people with a desire to see the next generation rise to know and love Jesus! By leading with their words and lives, they build relationships with the children and partner with the parents to guide children in understanding their dependence on God and His love for them.
