At Kelsey Creek Church, we want kids to know that God made them, that God loves them, and that God cares about their lives. We also want our kids to be a valued part of our collective life as a church. That’s why kids are welcome every time we gather for worship, fellowship, or service. At the same time, we believe that kids need to be with their friends and that they learn best when they are with their peers which is why we offer the following fun, safe, and age-appropriate programming.
This ministry for newborns through 2 years old serves parents while they worship with the Kelsey Creek family. Our commitment is to make each child feel comfortable, safe, and cared for, every single time.
Each Sunday, we invite kids 3 years old through 1st grade to worship together in Children’s Worship about midway through our main worship service. Shortly before the message and any congregational announcements, kids are invited to meet their Children’s Worship leaders for some fun, safe, and age-appropriate worship with their friends.
Sunday Morning Spiritual Formation
Our hope is to teach God’s Word in a purposeful and creative way so that kids can apply it to their lives, know Jesus personally, and impact those around them. Kids’ Spiritual Formation Classes provide Sunday School education with activities and fun (see more information about GEMS and Cadets below).
Spiritual Formation Classes, which are available for kids ages 3 to 5th grade, meet most Sundays*, September - May, directly after the worship service.
*We share lunch together, kids and adults, on the first Sunday of each month. Spiritual Formation Classes, for kids and adults, meet the other three (or four) Sundays of the month.
GEMS and Cadets Gatherings
Several times during the year, we invite girls and boys 1st - 5th grade to meet in the evening for some extra fun with our GEMS and Cadets programs. Kids can enjoy games, crafts, Pinewood Derby preparation and more.
GEMS aims to help bring 1st - 5th grade girls into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. Cadets is a mentoring program where Christian men share Christ’s love with 1st - 5th grade boys.
