Each weekend, children have the opportunity to experience the life-changing power of Jesus and His word through worship and story. We’ve designed our kids environments with your child in mind to be safe, fun, and filled with age-appropriate learning tools.
WELCOME TO VERTICAL KIDS
Drawing from Psalm 78, our mission and vision is to come alongside families
to make disciples of the next generation.
Our Vertical Kids Check-In is located in the main lobby of our building. When you arrive, you will be greeted by a Kids Check-In Volunteer, who will help guide you through the check-in and drop-off process!
After children are checked-in, they head to their classrooms for warm-up and introductory activities. These activities are designed to introduce the Bible story and get children ready to learn.
WORSHIP AND STORY
Every age group has a chance to worship God each week, with the aim of teaching children how to worship in spirit and in truth. We also believe the Word of God should be taught boldly and correctly. Each week the Bible story and connection to Jesus is presented in both video form and from teachers who open their Bibles and teach with authority, We incorporate all we know about how children learn into how we teach the truth of Scripture.
FOLLOW UP ACTIVITIES
The remainder of ministry time (between 30-60 minutes depending on the age) is dedicated to a small group experience to follow up on the Bible teaching. For younger children, conversations and activities bring the Bible teaching to life in a hands-on and fun way. As they mature, the small group questions move towards more personal application of the large group teaching. Scripture memorization, prayer and a snack time are also included. Please let us know if your child has any allergies!
Hold onto your name-tags when you check your child in! Because we value your child’s safety, a volunteer will ask for you to present your check-in tags when you come to pick your child up. They’ll also give you any resources or activities your child may have worked on in class!
