STONE QUARRY





Move UP!

Dear Parent, 

We are looking forward to another year with your child as they grow in their understanding of how much they are loved by God and help them find ways to live out of a love for him. 

This year we are moving up every child to their next class/grade level on Sunday, August 11th! 


This is an exciting time in the Stone Quarry and promises lots of new experiences. Class placement is based on grade level in the 2019-2020 school year. Here’s a brief description of each class so you know where your child will be on August 11th.


Pebbles (6 weeks - PreK) 

The Pebbles is our weekly environment where your infants through pre-Kindergarten aged children hear a story about God and engage in activities to help illustrate the story. Our lesson includes a well-organized curriculum produced by LIfe Church that includes different activities each week including a video supplement, games, and art. There’s also a snack and time to play and enjoy being a kid! 


Rocks (Kindergarten - 3rd) 

We want our kids to see how God’s Word fits into their lives in engaging ways. We use the Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum which is written by Sally Lloyd Jones. The curriculum tells stories from the Bible on a level our kids will understand and incorporates fun games and activities to hide God’s Word in their hearts. A weekly handout is sent home with kids each time to further their discussion of the weekly Bible story. After joining the adults for worship in the main building, students will have time to play at our newly created “Crush and Run” playground weather-permitting. 


Boulders (4th - 6th) 

The Boulders meet in our newly renovated space designed just for them -- the Outback! It is located down the porch behind the Worship Center. From the Outback, our kids join us for worship which gives them an opportunity to observe their parents and others as they engage with the Lord through worship; then, they return to their class for Bible teaching with video supplements, activities, and games as they learn what God’s Word means for them. 


We are grateful for the opportunity to spend time with your children each Sunday morning. To celebrate our time together, we will be hosting a “move up” party in each class on August 4th -- one week before the big move up day! Please contact us with any thoughts, questions, or concerns. We are here to be a resource for you and to provide your child opportunities to grow in relationship with Jesus. Come join us this fall. You won’t want to miss it! 



Investing in our future

At The Stone Church, we believe that children matter to God and that God should matter to children. In The Stone Quarry (Kid’s Ministry), we want to create an atmosphere where kids say two things:


“That was fun!”  –We believe that children should enjoy church, not simply endure it.

“I am learning about God!”  –We will teach children the Bible in creative and engaging ways that they will remember, understand, and apply to their lives.


Beginning in the Fall of 2016 we will have three age divisions:


The Pebbles:  Birth- Pre-K

The Rocks:  K-3

The Boulders: 4-6

The Rocks  (K-3)

We believe that the Bible should never be boring, and we want our kids to see how God’s Word fits into their lives in engaging ways.  We use the Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum which is written by Sally Lloyd Jones. This curriculum tells stories from the Bible on a level our kids will understand and incorporates fun games and activities to hide God’s Word in their hearts.

The Boulders (4th-6th)

The Boulders meet in our recently renovated space designed just for them--The Outback!  After check-in each week, our kids come over to the Gathering Place to participate in worship with the adults.  This gives them an opportunity to observe their parents and others as they engage with the Lord through worship; then, they return to their class for Bible teaching, video supplements, activities, snacks, and games.  It really is an enjoyable time for them, and the teachers who are there really look forward to interacting with your child!



Who's Involved?

Every Sunday morning we provide a safe environment for kids from birth through fifth grade where they can learn about Jesus and connect with each other.


Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry, and it’s an honor to serve with each and every one of them as they love on kids each week! Every volunteer who leads in the Kids Ministry has had a background check and is committed to making the ministry a safe, Biblically relevant, and fun environment for your kids.


"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court." 


Psalms 127:3-5


How should I prepare my kids?

Child Check-in: Check-in begins 15 minutes before each service. For the safety and security of your child, first-time visitors will need to complete a registration card. Once the card is filled out, you and your child will receive matching Security ID stickers. You will use your Security ID stickers to pick up your kids.


Child Pick-Up: When picking up your child, you must present your Security ID sticker before we can release him or her to you.


Healthy Kids Policy: At the first signs of illness (fever in the last 24 hours, a questionable rash, nasal discharge, vomiting, diarrhea, or conjunctivitis), please keep your child at home. Your child will be more comfortable there, and this will also prevent other children from becoming sick. Should your child become sick while in our care, we will notify you promptly.


Allergies: Please let us know of any allergies or medical conditions your child may have.

Thank you so much for helping us as we strive to make our Kids Ministry a safe environment for your kids to learn about God.
