- Sunday at 9am
Kids can come to Village Church on Sunday mornings expecting a rockin’ worship time, a place to learn Bible truths in creative, kid-friendly, relevant ways, and to connect with other kids.
We are honored to be entrusted with your kids and believe that their environment should not only be fun and inviting, but also safe and secure. All volunteers have gone through a background check, are well equipped, are passionate about sharing God’s love, and love to help kids know Jesus, follow Jesus, and share Jesus with others!
If you are planning to visit us...
On your first visit, come to the Kid Zone registration desk by the fish tank, which is just inside the southeast entrance of the building (marked Gymnasium). Helpful volunteers will be at the desk ready to assist. You can download our Kid Zone Registration Form and bring it with you – or just fill one out when you arrive!
You and your child(ren) will receive a temporary name tag/parent card for the morning. The name tag has a number on it which will match your parent card. This is our way of assuring your child's safety at dismissal - make sure to bring that parent card back with you. If we need to contact you during service, we will do so with a text message. Please supply your mobile number on the registration desk form. As you enter the auditorium we ask that you silence your phone, but keep it on vibrate so you will receive any text we might send.
Your family will be entered into Realm, our secure online sign in server, so on subsequent visits, your check in process will be streamlined. You will simply check your children in yourself, using iPads we have both downstairs by the fish tank and upstairs by the gym. Once you have checked your children in, a new name tag and parent tag will print out for your child and you respectively. The numbers will match to ensure safe pick up.
Please allow a few extra minutes before the service time you are planning on attending to arrive and get your children settled.

Nursery through 5th grade
Nursery (0-2 years)
Leaders engage babies with singing, finger plays and simple Bible stories. Toddlers participate in a simple structured curriculum of Bible story time, singing, and other related activities.
Children learn about Jesus as their most important friend by engaging in a wide variety of activities including art, pretend play, construction play, books, puzzles and games. The children gather for large group worship and teaching time each week where the Bible truth is taught in a creative way, then leaders seek to build loving, caring and sharing relationships through small group times where children get to know and pray for one another.
Early Elementary (1st-3rd grade)
Children are led in a worship and teaching time that creatively communicates the Bible lesson for the morning, and then they gather in small groups of 8-10 children to explore the Bible truth in greater depth and application, pray and build friendships.
Upper Elementary (4th & 5th grade)
These classes follow the same essential format as the Early Elementary classes, but the worship music, curriculum and activities are tailored to these ages.
