SO YOU'RE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL...



We know being a parent is one of the hardest jobs on the planet, but it’s also the greatest thing you will ever do.


We know your job isn’t always easy, but here’s what we want you to know: we’re here to help in any way we can.


We may be a children’s ministry, but that doesn’t mean kids are the only people we care about. We care about you too! 


Thanks for letting us be another voice in the life of your child. Your trust and partnership means a lot to us. We can’t wait to see what this school year has in store!

in connect kids we focus on 4 KEY AREAS

  1. SPEND TIME WITH GOD: This is an obvious one, right? Sometimes it’s the only spiritual habit we can name. After all, isn’t “growing spiritually” synonymous with “spending time with God”? Well, not exactly, but it’s still pretty important. After all, if kids are ever going to make their faith their own, they’ve got to start spending time with God on their own. It means opening the Bible on their own, having conversations with God on their own, and discovering how they best connect with God through worship on their own.
  2. SPEND TIME WITH OTHERS: Engaging in healthy community can, and should, be a spiritual habit we help our kids develop. But “healthy community” doesn’t just mean hanging out with Christians. This spiritual habit is about growing in Christlike relationships with everyone.
  3. USE THEIR GIFTS: Kids need to know that God made them unique, and special, and with really specific gifts, talents, passions, and resources. Then they need to use those gifts to love God, love others, and influence the world around them. Because when kids begin to discover who God made them to be, and then use their unique identity to love both God and others, they grow.
  4. SHARE THEIR STORY: Kids need to learn how to talk about God. Sharing your story is the spiritual habit of making faith a regular, everyday, go-to topic of conversation in our lives. Because when we talk about God and His place in our story (or, more accurately, our place in His story), it helps us believe, helps us understand, and helps us take ownership of our own faith. 


LET US WALK BESIDE YOU

As a parent, you are making a huge impact in your kid’s life. The impact you’re making is far more significant than any impact we, their church, could ever hope to make. You are the most important voice in your kid’s life, both now and for a lifetime.


We believe that, in every kid’s life, this is true: your best chance at influencing your kid’s faith and future is to recruit other adults to influence them with you.
