New Life Kids Vision
Our vision in New Life Kids Church is to help elementary kids find and follow Jesus. The Orange Strategy is used across all age groups at New Life. In our ministry, we use the 252 Basics curriculum. This curriculum combines the critical influences of the church and the home to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Weekly resources are used in our ministry and provided to families to ensure that every kid grows up believing ......
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

What Does A Sunday Look Like In Kids Church?
Sunday Service Details
Come on in – Children can warm up for worship and fellowship during our open play time, while we wait for everyone to get here and get settled for services.
Worship – Spending time singing praises to the Lord, complete with motions, gets us ready for our lesson. We sing a variety of songs, some fairly kid specific and others that are the same that the adults are singing downstairs. We take time to talk about the words and what they mean. Led by various worship leaders, kids are almost always right up there helping as well.
Large Group Teaching – The Children and Family Pastor and various gifted teachers share the truths of Scripture with our children in unique and memorable ways. Because kids thrive on variety, we use many different methods – from audio/visual, to skits, to puppetry, – whatever means God gives us to help make the truth of Scripture come alive for kids!
Small Group Time – After large group teaching time our kids get into Small Groups (assigned by age /grade and gender) to discuss the lesson, work on a craft or activity that relates to the lesson, recite and discuss scripture and pray for and get to know one another.
Pick up – Families come upstairs with their pick up tag from that day and use that number to check out their child(ren). That way we make sure that kids go home with those they came with. Kids are picked up out of their Crew Time so you can see and connect with their Small Group Leader.
