WHAT WE'RE LEARNING.

HeartShaper // January 8 // Unit 2

2s

During the next five weeks, your child will learn that God gives us lots of good things. Here are the lesson themes:

God gives me good things (Matthew 5:1, 2; 6:25-34)

            Week 1 • God gives me food

            Week 2 • God gives me clothes

            Week 3 • God gives me a home

            Week 4 • God gives me water

            Week 5 • God gives me good things

 

Bible Words: “God gives me good things."  (based on Matthew 7:11).

While going about the activities of the day, remind your child that God is the one who gives us our food, water, clothes, a home, and all kinds of good things. Besides thanking God for good food to eat and water to drink, look for other opportunities to thank God for giving us good things.

-------------------------------------------

3s & 4s

Have you ever helped your child nominate a teacher to receive a special award? That teacher was probably dedicated, caring, and knew how to communicate to others. Jesus was the supreme teacher. Crowds followed Him. They couldn’t get enough of His devotion and care for them. He taught, using stories they could understand.

Over the next five weeks, your child will be learning some important lessons Jesus taught the people while He was on earth. These lessons are for us too. Review each week’s lesson with your child and help your child understand the concepts Jesus was teaching. Model and practice His teachings in the home. Write them on cards. Post them with magnets on refrigerator doors. Pray and ask God to help you as you help your child grow to be like Jesus.

The lessons your child will learn include: 

Jesus Teaches Me

            Week 1 • Jesus Teaches About Pleasing God (Matthew 5–7)

            Week 2 • Jesus Teaches About Giving (Matthew 6; Mark 12)

            Week 3 • Jesus Teaches About Praying (Matthew 6; Luke 11)

            Week 4 • Jesus Teaches About Helping (Matthew 7; Luke 10)

            Week 5 • Jesus Teaches About Sharing (Luke 12) 

The following verse is the Bible Memory for this unit of lessons. Review the verse at home with your child:

“Jesus answered, ‘Obey my teaching’” (based on John 14:23, ICB).

GO! // January 29 // Jesus Forgives the Sinner

Include your kids in the normal High Point Church worship service during the music portion, and then have them watch the KidsMin video after the music is done.

KC+ 

KC+ is our 4th and 5th grade KidsMin class. This year, we are studying the New City Catechism to help the kids understand 50 of the foundational truths of the Christian faith, e.g., the Trinity, God, Sin, Jesus being fully human and fully God, Redemption, Justification and lots of other difficult but important words. Alternate years, we take a thematic look at topics like the Bible, the Gospel, What Believing Looks Like, Worldviews, Prayer, Heaven, Life at High Point Church, and Worship to teach how the all the truths learned last year fit together and what they mean to our 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.

LEARN MORE

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 you in praying for your kids. If there's ever anything you would love to see God do in your child's life, please email our Director of Kids Ministries, Gwen Schrader, at .

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

Registration is now live for the 2022-2023 school year!
