The mission of Redeemer Kids is to glorify God by making followers of Christ. We are dedicated to introducing children to Jesus, teaching them to love God’s Word, and encouraging them to share the Good News with others. We want children who come to our church to feel loved, welcomed and grow in relationship with other kids as they grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
While your Kids' Team strives to provide the best Sunday morning program possible, we know that training children for life and godliness also happens in the day-to-day routine of life. For this reason, we hope to support the cultivation of your family worship time at home. In the section, "Stay Connected," you will find a variety of resources designed to guide your whole family deeper into the current sermon series and/or kids' series together.
LOCATION AND TIMES
Our Sunday morning program is offered for newborns through 4th grade on Sundays during the 8:00AM, 9:30AM, and 11:15AM, Worship Gatherings. Children’s classrooms, including the nursery are all located in the Main Building.

Try out this study method with Sunday's lesson from John 10.
[Hold your magnifying glass up to your eye and say "observation"]
"What does this SAY?"
Remember to ask the important sleuthing questions:
Who, What, Where, When, Why, How
[Point to your head and put on your thinking face as you say "interpretation"]
"What does this MEAN?"
Remember to look at all the clues and find the meaning based on what you see in the verse, or before and after the verse you observed.
Repeat: "Scripture Interprets Scripture"
[Hold your hands out as if carrying a tray and say "application"]
"So what will I do??"
Ask the following questions: What did I learn about God? What did I learn about myself or others? What did I find delight in? How might I change the way I go about my day today?
Pray together praising God and thanking Him for His true Word and the salvation which made it possible to have relationship with Him.
