Angels Class: Sunday School for children ages 3- 5
With Gospel Light's "Little Kids Time" Curriculum, the children are engaged through their senses using a variety of methods such as music, crafts and Bible lessons that draw kids into God’s Word and closer to Jesus. Two adult volunteers lead the classes. Classes are held on the 4th Floor Children's Room starting at 9:30.
Kingdom Come Kids (KCK): Sunday School for children ages 6 - 11
This dynamic program, based on a workshop rotation model, gets rave reviews from children and adults alike. Each rotation, lasting four to five weeks, covers a single Bible story, which is explored through such activities as games, storytelling, cooking, science, crafts, and music. Adult volunteers teach the same segment for the duration of the 4-to- 5 week rotation, with adjustments made based on the age group. Due to the structure and diversity of the curriculum, children are able to work with and learn from a dynamic group of individuals. KCK is held in the Fellowship Hall in the basement level of the church building from 9:45. .
Children in Church
Children are always welcome in the worship services at TUC. Children’s Ministry strives to support parents as they guide their children into the joys of worship. Every Sunday morning during both worship services, Good News for Kids, a 5-minute sermon for children, is given by a pastor or someone involved in Children’s Ministry. Age-appropriate Worship Bags are available for children during the worship services as well as Children’s Bulletins to help keep children focused during worship.
Throughout the year, there are special events during the services that pay tribute to children and their interests, such as singing and musical recitals, lector reading and drama.
Children aged 3-8, who are not yet able to sit comfortably through an entire service, are invited to join the Children's Church immediately following Good News for Kids at the 8:30 and 11:00 services. It is held on the 4th floor in the Children's Room and also in the old 4th floor Library.
The Children's Church uses a mixture of Group's "Buzz" Curriculum, which has a mix of crafts, games, and activities over a semester period that follow one Bible story, with a supplement of books, Veggie Tales videos, and free play time. If more than 10 Children are in a group, children are split between 3-5 year-olds and 6-8 year olds for more individualized time.
Staffed by friendly professionals, the Sunday Nursery looks after children aged 3 and younger, from the start of the 8:30 a.m. service until the end of the 11 a.m. service.
