Kidscoast is a children's ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind! Every weekend our birth-24 month year olds receive loving care and our 2 year olds-5th graders experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way.
Safety and security is a top priority for us, that is why you will be provided with a nametag and accompanying ID number for both you and your child. In order for your child to be picked up, we have to receive the number tag that matches the child's nametag. There is also a place to note special allergies and other information on this tag. For everyone's safety and security, volunteers do not serve alone and they have received a background check.
In the nursery, your children will enjoy an environment that is bright, clean and baby safe. Our experienced and trained caregivers will love and care for your baby, allowing you to relax and enjoy the adult service. Our mission is to show the love of Jesus to each and every child while playing with them, rocking them, changing them and singing to them.
Each week when you bring your child, a nursery report card will be filled out. This lets us know what came with, whether or not they can have a snack and if they have any allergies. When you return to pick up your child… it will let you know how your child did while they were in our care and the last time their diaper was changed.
Your children will love playing and learning about Jesus in a way that is designed just for them. Fun, interactive Bible stories help your children get excited about the Bible. Fun songs and craft activities help them to remember that God loves them and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
Our preschool classroom is packed full of fun. Creative storytellers teach the truths of the Bible. Worship leaders lead the children in fun, action-packed songs, while crafts and games help to show kids how to apply the lesson. In the preschool classroom, children are introduced to small groups and are encouraged to bring their Bibles and "Jesus Money" [offering] each week. Preschoolers grow to understand that: God Made Me, God Loves Me and Jesus Wants to Be My Friend Forever!
Our preschoolers often will receive a snack in their classroom, such as cheerios or crackers. For the safety of children with allegeris, signs are posted notifying parents if something other than cheerios or crackers are being served.
Cool worship, fun, crazy games and timeless lessons that capture and keep their attention are just a few of the things that await elementary kids each week. Small group leaders help kids know how the Bible stories, written thousands of years ago, can apply to their lives as an elementary student today. Small groups provide a forum for kids to open up and share their questions and comments in a safe, loving environment. Every week, elementary students learn these three basic truths: I need to make the wise choice, I should treat others the way I want to be treated, and I can trust God no matter what.
Our elementary children are often given candy as prizes and sometimes other food is used on stage or for games pertaining to the lesson.
