We will return to two Sunday morning services at 9:20 and 11:00 a.m. beginning on September 12 at our Fall Kick-off. FBC KIDS for children from birth to grade 6 will be available during the 9:20 a.m. service with age-specific programs for nursery, preschool, early elementary (K-grade 1), and preteen (grade 4-6). This will be especially exciting for our preteens to resume their regular program since their Sunday morning experience has been combined with the early elementary group throughout COVID! FBC KIDS for children from birth to preschool will be available during the 11:00 a.m. service.
FBC KIDS is a Sunday morning environment for elementary aged children (K-Grade 6). During our 10:30 a.m. service, children have an opportunity meet with a consistent small group, to learn about God in an age-appropriate way, and grow in their understanding of what it means to have a relationship with Him!
Every month students learn about one specific Life App (a virtue that God wants to download into our lives so that we can change the world around us for the better). Each Life App is accompanied by a monthly memory verse, which helps children understand how God's word applies to their lives.
Because our program is oriented around small groups, we encourage families to choose one service to attend on a regular basis. This will allow children to thrive as they develop deeper relationships with their Small Group Leaders and peers.
SMALL GROUP PRIZE PROGRAM
At FBC KIDS, small groups work together to collect points towards a prize that they can enjoy together. Groups may cash in their hard earned points at various intervals throughout the year for different prizes, such as a popcorn party, an ice cream party, a gym hangout, or a morning movie marathon. These prizes are awarded during our regularly scheduled time on Sunday mornings, and families will be notified in advance when a group is ready to cash in their points for a prize so that families can plan for their children to attend.
Individual kids can earn points for their small group every week by:
- Completing and returning their God Time devotional sheet that was handed out the previous week.
- Bringing a Bible to small group.
- Saying the current memory verse including the reference.
- Displaying the Life App through their behavior!
To help keep parents in the loop on what their kids are learning at FBC KIDS, every month we provide each family with a Parent Cue Sheet. These Parent Cues communicate four things:
- the month's life app
- the month's memory verse
- the week's Bible story
- a cue to prompt parents to connect with their kids each week.
By following these simple cues, based on Deuteronomy 6:7—"Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up"—a parent can make the most of everyday moments to instill faith and character into the heart of his or her child.
registration & CHECK-IN
To ensure the safety of every child, we ask parents to accompany their child to the appropriate FBC KIDS room to check them in at the beginning of the service hour each week. Upon check-in, each child will receive a check-in tag, which they will wear on their person throughout the duration of the program. The parent will be given a matching tag to keep with them and return after the service in order to check their child out of the program.
Check-in opens 15 minutes prior to the start of each service. If your child has not yet been registered for FBC KIDS or if you need to update your child's information, please download and print the form below, fill it out, and return it to the church office or to an FBC KIDS Check-In Station on Sunday morning. If your child has severe medical needs please also complete the Emergency Medications Request and Release Form.
