|The children are an essential part of House of Worship. They participate in the church programs, and play active roles in various ministry teams with the adults! They also participate in their own interactive classes and activities. With practical teaching and a life-giving message for kids, your child is bound to have a great time at Kingdom Kids! Parents are also very involved in Kingdom Kids. We hold annual conferences to monitor the children's progress, parenting classes, and support for mothers with infants. Every parent volunteers in Kingdom Kids. This allows our parents to be an active part of their child's spiritual education, and learn tools that will enhance their child's spiritual growth and development. Parents can volunteer to serve as a teacher in any of the children’s classes, as a Helping Hands volunteer to register the children as they come in, or as a Praise Leader to minister during the children’s time of praise & worship. All parents donate snacks for the children. The children are divided into 6 groups: Nursery, Lifegivers, Builders, Ambassadors, Governors, Rulers. Children can also apply to be part of the Kingdom Kids Band, which ministers at HOW and other community activities.|
We have a nursery available for families with young children. We currently do not have teachers/assistants for this class. Infants must be supervised by parent/ guardian at all times. There is also an overflow room equipped with video footage of the service, so parents can watch the service while taking care of their little ones.
Readiness for graduation to Lifegivers
Many little ones are not ready to be dropped off at class at a year of age. We advise that a parent/guardian be available to help them transition during their first weeks in the Lifegivers class.
The Lifegivers are the wonderful toddlers at HOW whom we all love to pick up and cuddle! They are learning to talk, interact and enjoy exploring their environment. This stage can also be exhausting for their parents, who are trying to keep up with them, and for their teachers as well! As precious little one, we welcome them into HOWCC! It can be difficult to bring young children to any organized setting. Our primary goal for families with infants and toddlers is for both parents and children to be blessed when they come to church.
Lifegivers should be changed before being dropped off. Parents must complete a short form that will let the teacher know when child’s last meal and changing time was. Parents will be contacted if their child needs a diaper change. All their bags, sippy cups and pertinent supplies must be labeled.
Readiness for graduation to Builders
The 3 – 4yr old young ones are learning to formulate ideas, are testing their environment and are very active. What a wonderful time to start imparting biblical truths and sharing the love of Christ with them!
Builders who are not potty trained should be changed before being dropped off. Parents will be contacted if their child needs a diaper change. All their bags, bottles and pertinent supplies must be labeled.
Readiness for graduation to Ambassadors
Our 5-6 year olds are on a roll! They are learning to read and write, they ask lots of questions, and have lots of ideas of their own! This is a time of their lives when we must solidify their biblical knowledge and show them how to apply the Word of God practically in their lives.
Readiness for graduation to Governors
The 7-9 year olds are little men and women! They understand who they are, what they like to do. This age is ideal to begin to make solid decisions to live for God!
Readiness for graduation to Rulers
The 10 – 13 year olds are in the pre-adolescent & adolescent stage of life. They are caught in between childhood and young adulthood, and in many respects they tend to feel “caught in between” in life. HOWEVER Jesus knew his calling when he was an adolescent wandering in the temple. So this is a critical age for them to truly make a choice to life for Christ, and to begin to be life-giving to their community.With this in mind, the Rulers are all about real life application.
Readiness for graduation out of Kingdom Kids
The Rulers join the adults for service in the sanctuary on the last Sunday of every month.
