WHAT WE'RE LEARNING.

HeartShaper // God Made Our Senses

Find this week's take-home resource for 2s here.

Scripture:

Read Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:8, 15, 16; Proverbs 20:12 in your Bible to learn this story and watch this video.

GO! // The Book of Exodus

Since we're moving to a hybrid in-person-and-online KidsMin model, there is no longer any worship in the video lesson. I want to encourage you to include your kids in the normal High Point Church worship service during the music portion, and then have them head over to watch the KidsMin video after music is done.

The New City Catechism

Find the recording from last week's class here with the password +WDKB95W

For this year's curriculum we're going to be going through the New City Catechism. I strongly recommend that you watch the video entitled "Introducing the New City Catechism" on this page to introduce yourself both to the idea of catechism and the New City Catechism in particular. All of the videos on that page are very helpful in fleshing out what each of those things mean.

If your child is coming in-person, they'll receive a kids-sized version of the New City Catechism to take home. If they aren't able to come in-person to get a book, they can access the New City Catechism through the New City Catechism app in both the App Store and the Google Play Store. In the "settings" portion of the app, make sure to check the box that says "Children's Mode".

I want to encourage you to really take advantage of this resource, and to dive right in with your kids! Memorizing a catechism is a profound way to root your faith deep. We're excited to see how it will impact the faith of your kids.

SUNDAY MORNING.

0-12 Months

Our infant nursery is equipped with the perfect necessities for little ones from swings to mobiles and toys and cribs. Staffed entirely by background-checked volunteers and with an adult to infant ratio of 1:3, our babies enjoy the close, personal, nurturing care they require. This also enables each of our adult volunteers to build meaningful relationships with each child and his or her family.

1-2 YRS

The toddler nursery is for “confident walkers” through age two. Parents can take great comfort knowing their child is receiving exceptional loving care in our toddler nursery. Our toddler nursery is staffed entirely by background-checked volunteers and equipped with the perfect mix of fine motor & gross motor toys as well as toys encouraging parallel play, cooperative play, and plenty of board books. Our adult to toddler ratio is 1:4 which enables each of our adult volunteers to build meaningful relationships with each child and his/her family. 
 
Children "graduate" to Sunday School classes for preschoolers in September if they are age two as of September 1.

2 – Pre-K

We make Sunday morning a fun learning experience where kids are energized and fulfilled through Bible-based ministry. Our classes are designed to connect with kids through unique and relevant teaching methods including centers, music, and drama.

Ministry to each child comes to life through loving, trained, and background-checked volunteer team members who care deeply about helping each child grow in his or her faith. Our team members are committed to coming alongside your family to assist you in the spiritual formation of your child. A trained and dedicated teaching team brings Biblical truths to life each week in a hands-on multi-sensory approach to learning from God’s Word. 

Early Childhood classes are available during both Worship Services at 9 + 10:45am.

K – 5

At 9am, Kids Celebration kicks off with vibrant worship. Trained teachers use creative teaching methods to present God's Biblical truth to elementary school-aged children in a relevant and engaging way.

After the large group teaching, the children break into small groups where the main thrust of the day's lesson is discussed. Background-checked volunteers team leaders use small groups to help the children find tangible applications from God's Word to use in their everyday lives.

At 10:45am, children grades K-3 attending Kids Praise meet together in the gym and travel between three stations: Bible Boulevard (Bible Lesson), Praise Path (Movement Activity) + Creation Station (Learning Activity related to lesson).  Each station is led by background-checked and trained volunteer team members.

4th and 5th graders in the 10:45am service attend the musical portion of the adult worship environment in the balcony on the left side of the sanctuary and then exit with their volunteer leaders for an engaging Bible lesson and small group discussion.

Both Kids Celebration and Kids Praise teach the same main idea from multiple angles.  We encourage parents to come to both services; stay for the main service during one hour and attend a class or serve the other hour. Your kids will enjoy attending both services back to back! 

BUDDY PROGRAM

KidsMin is in the process of developing additional resources and programming to serve kids with special needs! We are going to be starting with a buddy program, so that trained, background-checked, loving volunteers can help kids who need additional support for participation in the Sunday School routine.

If you have a child who might benefit from a buddy for success in the classroom, or you know of a family unable to attend church due to their childcare needs, please let us know. Email Bethany Domoto at  for more information!  

During the Week.

High Point Christian School is a part of Impact Christian Schools (ICS). ICS is here to provide academic and school leadership for Christian schools with a much bigger vision than just providing quality education. ICS aims to come alongside what God would have done when his presence intersects education. The outcome? A robust educational environment where children can grow into great people, know their purpose, their identity and know how to participate in a community where others flourish as well.

People often talk about the "power of prayer". That phrase can be misleading. There's really no power in prayer, but there is great power in God and he responds when we reach out to Him in prayer. Because of how gracious and loving God is, prayer is our most effective strategy for the Spiritual growth of our children.  

Your kids' small group leaders would love to join with you in praying for your kids. If there's ever anything you would love to see God do in your child's life, please text or email our Director of Kids Ministries, John Sekutowski.

John will pray and will also send the request on to your kids' small group leaders. The prayer request will stay confidential outside of John and your small group leaders as they join in prayer together.

Our club meets on Thursday nights! Registration is now open.

Register and pay online here!

Awana is a global ministry that helps parents and churches raise children to know, love and serve Christ. It is a Bible-based children’s program that is centered on the Gospel and makes Scripture memorization fun. 

This year is going to look a little different than other years. Due to COVID-19, our club is going to be online only in the fall semester, and will start Thursday, October 1. As the semester progresses we will revisit opening weekly, in-person clubs in the spring.

All clubs will continue to have kids work through the lessons in their books, memorize scripture, and participate in virtual large group time. Book completion requirements may vary by club. There will also be check-ins to share memory verses using the free, Marco Polo app with a club leader, and occasional large-group in-person or online gatherings.

As parents, spiritual growth in our kids sometimes seems like an overwhelming responsibility. As an Awana parent, you have an age-appropriate resource to help you disciple your children in understanding the Bible and learning scripture. We're excited for the time you'll be able to spend with them in scripture!

SPECIAL NEEDS SATURDAYS: REVIVE!

This once-a-month respite opportunity is for families who have a child with a disability, ages 4-14, and their siblings. During Revive! the children and their adult buddies enjoy free choice and cooperative play, engaging art projects, fun music, a Bible story and more. Revive! is a fun place to be a kid.

We maintain a one-to-one ratio with our special needs children and their adult buddies.

It is our desire to make the gospel message of Jesus Christ accessible to children of all abilities, and to give parents time to go rejuvenate themselves while their children are in a safe, fun environment.

To learn more about Revive! or to RSVP for the next event, please contact Sam and Brett Taber.
