Edgemere Kids offers a variety of kid-centric opportunities.
Sunday School happens every week. We have amazing teachers who facilitate learning about God. Our classrooms are appropriately set for each age group. The normal start time is 9:30 a.m. on Sundays. On Adventure Sundays, it starts right after the Adventure Sunday program is over. Our teachers do some specific things for Edgemere Kids:
1. In their personal prayers, teachers pray specifically for each of the children in their class by name. We want your children to be blessed.
2. They prepare ahead of time so our time together is well thought out and well used. We want to make the most of your child’s time.
3. Our teachers come early. Your kids are special and we can’t wait to see them. You will never arrive to a room that does not have an adult ready to greet your child and help them get acquainted if they are new.
Children’s Moment is a special time during our regular worship service where all children are welcome to come to the stage and hear a short lesson designed for them. Kids feel special and an important part of the church when they get to spend some time on stage. Children’s Moment is lead by one of our teens or adults and lasts about five minutes.
Children’s Church starts right after Children’s Moment and is specifically for children between 2 and 6 years old. We ask that children younger than 2 or older than 6 stay with their parents during this time. We do not dismiss children for the entire worship service because we know it is important for them to experience much of our service time. However, we also recognize that little ones sometimes have trouble sitting and being quiet for long periods of time. That is where Children’s Church comes in. It is a worship time specifically for kids. During Children’s Church, it is our goal to have a fun, educational, and worshipful time that is geared for young children. We hope to build a foundation that will help young children make the most out of their worship time with the entire church.
Children’s Library is a place of discovery for our Kids. Books in the library are available to take home and enjoy with your children. We ask that you bring the books back the following week. If you would like to donate books to the Children’s Library please drop them at the Church office. We will go through them before placing them on the shelves.
Vacation Bible School (VBS) happens in the summer and is lodes of fun filled learning for our children. Games, crafts, snacks, and adventure filled lessons are all part of the VBS experience at Edgemere. See info for 2017 VBS here.
