Kidz corner

Join us on Sundays for socially distanced, outside stations.
This is a fun time to connect with friends, play games and learn Bible verses and stories about God's great love for us, His children.

Kidz Corner starts mid-way through the service, after intergenerational worship with parents.

Spring Focus: Digging Into the Heart of God

Each week we will be learning something about WHO God is and HOW we respond and reflect Him.
Here are a few lessons we'll be covering:

God is creative....so we're creative

God is the greatest....and we don't need to be

God is giving...so we're giving

Typical Schedule

  • 10:15am to 10:30am: Parents check in your Kidz when you arrive at JLS prior to service start time. Check-in booth will be under the breezeway by the Cafetorium. Service starts at 10:30am so please plan accordingly.
  • 10:30am to 11am: Kids will stay with parents for the first 30 minutes of the service for worship and announcements.
  • During the break at the end of announcements, parents please walk your kids to the check-in booth where teachers will meet them and walk them the rest of the way to Kidz Corner.
  • At the end of the service, please come to Kidz Corner to pick up your child.
  • Maps and more details will be given to parents who register their children.

Safety

We place the highest priority on providing a safe and secure environment for our children.

We have an extensive screening and training process for our volunteers, and while we are doing church online, we are taking extra precautions to make sure our kids are safe.

Baby Dedications

What is a baby dedication?

For parents who want to have a meaningful ceremony entrusting their young child or baby's life in God's hands, we recommend baby dedications. Baby dedications are short, joyful ceremonies during our Sunday morning worship service where the family and community brings a child before God asking for His grace and presence in his or her life.

Do you perform baby baptisms?

We believe that baptism is a conscious choice to follow Jesus and commit to a lifelong relationship of trust for and obedience to Him. Therefore, we encourage adults, teenagers, and older children (age 8 and above) to consider making this very important and wonderful decision. 

Generally speaking, we encourage kids to be at least 8 years old to be baptized. However, we recognize kids may understand the idea of baptism and be ready to make a decision earlier.  Please let one of our pastors know if this is the case, and they will be happy to set up a time to talk to your child about it.


Parenting Courses

Our parenting series, based on the Love & Logic material gives parents tools to increase the odds of creating a peaceful home and raising children who can thrive in the real world.
