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 Pebbles (6 weeks-PreK)
The Pebbles is our weekly environment where your Infants through Kindergarten age 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 such as a video supplement, games, art, as well as a snack and time to just play and enjoy being a kid!
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. A weekly handout is sent home with kids each time to further their discussion of the weekly Bible story. Weather permitting they will have play time at our newly created "Crush and Run" playground.
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!
