WHAT WE'RE LEARNING.

Early Childhood (2-4 years old)

Early Childhood (2-4 years old)

WonderInk // WALKING IN LOVE // 

2s, 3s + 4s

UNIT SUMMARY: God’s love is amazing. Nothing can keep us from His love or move us away from His compassion. This five-part series looks at God’s boundless and generous love. We’ll see that when we go through difficult things, we can always fall back on His kindness. Because of His great love, we can persevere from a place of acceptance and care. When we encounter those we find hard to love, God shows us how because He is love.

The three most important things to have are faith, hope and love. But the greatest of them is love.

 —1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIrV)— 

June 2 - God’s Amazing Love: Romans 8;1, John 3, “Nothing Can Separate us from God’s Love”

Grade School (4th-5th grade)

KC+

KC+ is our 4th and 5th grade KidsMin class. This year, we are walking through scripture using Teach Us the Bible. Alternate years, we study 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.

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 years old – 4 years old

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 8:30am + 10:30am.

K – 5

At 8:30am and 10:30am, Kids Celebration (KC) kicks off with vibrant worship for kids in kindergarten through 3rd grade. 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.

4th and 5th graders, (KC+) attend the musical portion of the adult worship service and then exit with their volunteer leaders for an engaging Bible lesson and small group discussion.

Both 8:30am and 10:30am elementary worship experiences 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  for more information!  

First time in KidsMin?

 
Welcome! Here's what you need to know for Sunday mornings.

  • Feel free to enter through the High Point Christian School entrance (look for the KidsMin sign) or our main entrance. 
  • Our lobby Checkin staff will get your family registered and headed in the right direction for your kids’ classrooms.
  • Our volunteers are all background checked.
  • Our volunteers and children practice regular hand washing and/or hand sanitizing throughout the morning. 
  • Our team of volunteers monitor their own health and are following our wellness guidelines. 
  • Our ministry spaces are cleaned regularly.
  • Not sure if your kids should attend KidsMin? Our standard wellness policy is in place. In addition, if your child has a runny nose, cough, fever, or any other symptoms that are a potential COVID-19 symptom, we ask that you stay home for the week. We use current CDC guidelines as our guide.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Awana is held Thursday evenings from 6:30pm-8pm at High Point Church. Awana begins Thursday, October 5, 2023 and ends May 16, 2024.

SUMMER IS COMING.

Summer camps are one of the best ways for your kids to take steps in their faith and have memorable summers.
This summer, we are pleased to be able to offer one week-long, full day camp option!

Sports Camp: July 22-26: Currently Waitlisting

Our theme this year is Undefeated. At Undefeated Sports Camp, we will examine some of the things that attempt to defeat us and see how the victory is ours in Christ! We will make real-life applications from the words in Romans 8:37-39 and draw parallels to our own lives by using illustrations from true sports stories as well the life of Christ that demonstrate Christ’s power over these issues. Through focused Bible teaching, music, role modeling, object lessons, take-home papers, and kinesthetic learning, children will learn that faith in Christ can be trusted and Jesus can help them meet the issues of life that try to defeat them. Every child will be given tools to help them face the world they live in and the life God is willing to lead them through.

This is a great camp to invite friends to attend and is for boys and girls age 5 (by 9/1/24. These are generally rising kindergartners) - entering 6th grade. ⁠Enjoy these sports: Basketball, Soccer, Cheerleading, and Team 45 (for ALL 4 & 5 year olds).⁠ ⁠Please note, the minimum age hasn't changed. We are hoping it is less confusing. Sign up by July 22. 

Monday-Friday, 9am-3:30pm. Cost is $100 and includes a camp t-shirt and daily snack. (Add $25 for after-camp care until 4:30pm.)⁠ ⁠

Email Gwen, KidsMin Director, at with any questions or to have your teen volunteer.⁠ ⁠
