Redemption Kids Community
Redemption Kids Community exists to teach kids the way of Jesus. We believe that God has revealed himself through history and is working within history to fulfill his purposes for all creation. The Bible tells the story of God's work in the world. Each week, we gather to explore this story and invite our kids to enter into it: following the way of Jesus and joining the work that God is doing in the world. By respecting the innate spirituality of children we encourage curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of God.
Our programs for newborns through fifth grade meet on Sundays during the 10am Church Worship time. Grade school children (grades K-5th) will be released from the sanctuary to experience community in grade level groups that meet each week in the A-frame room on the north side of the building.
In the baby room, our goal is simple - that your child will begin to learn and understanding that God loves them. How do we do that? Through the care of committed volunteers, these early encounters let each child know they are valued and begin to build a foundation for a relationship with God.
The toddler rooms provides purposeful connections where kids discover that they belong to God, Jesus loves them, and He has a job for them to do. Each week in the toddler room, caring volunteers lead our 18 month through 3's in songs, a Bible story, and a key concept that ties the morning together.
Through monthly themes our preschool volunteers provide multiple ways to engage and capture our 3-5 year old's hearts and minds for God. Preschoolers begin to understand how each of the stories of God's people connects with the child's own experience and relationship with God.

Our Elementary kids begin each Sunday by joining our adult community for 15 minutes of worship. They are then dismissed to connect with caring volunteers and other kids their age to engage in a Bible "story of the month" through songs, sign language, skits and participating in "story stations". These teaching environments allow our kids to reflect on the context, the role of God in the stories and how God breaks into their ordinary, everyday lives.
