At Springbrook Community Church, we believe parents are the primary disciple makers of their children and it is our desire to assist you in raising emotionally and spiritually healthy children. We do that through a gospel centered, exciting age-appropriate program called Kid City. Kid City meets during the church services on Sunday mornings for children birth through 4th grade. Parents may drop off children prior to going to the service.
On your first visit please stop the Kid City desk to meet our staff and volunteers while registering your children. On subsequent visits you will be able to check them in yourselves at the kiosks located in the atrium or via assistance at the Kid City desk.
At the registration desk/kiosk, you will receive an alpha numeric name tag, which matches the code located on the child’s name tag. This will allow you access into our Kid City hallway and will be used to pick up your children following the service. If one of our volunteers should need to contact you during the service, the same code will appear on the screen in our worship center. If needed, we also have a Parent Room outside the infant classroom with closed-circuit TV so you don’t have to miss any of the service while you tend to your child.
Infants and toddlers through age 3 are lovingly cared for by our team of volunteers. In these classrooms we provide a loving environment for free play and, as they are able, we provide a short story and coloring page.
Children in Preschool (age 3) through Kindergarten meet together for free play, an age appropriate Bible story, music and activities. We are currently using curriculum called Tru Wonder.
Elementary children in 1st through 4th grade will meet in their classrooms before moving to large group for corporate worship and story time. Afterwards, they will break into small groups by age, to build relationships and further understand what was taught in the Bible story through fun activities, prayer and Q &A. We are currently using curriculum called Tru Story by David C. Cook.
Both curriculums we use have a spiritually-forming and family-empowering ministry philosophy that offers resources for today’s families. Each week, we will provide you with a resource designed to allow your family to have time in God’s Word that is aligned with what the children are learning in Sunday school. Make sure to pick up your handout as a review following the service!
Our program ensures that the children in Kid City are meeting in smaller student-to-volunteer ratios in order to develop relationships and have discipleship happen among teens, adults and children.
For the safety of all children in the program, all of our volunteers are pre-screened. This process includes: volunteer application, background check and possible reference check. If you are interested in serving, we have many opportunities for you to be involved. We are always looking for small group leaders and teachers at all grade levels, as well as helpers for the infants and pre-k classrooms. Volunteers are matched up with their giftedness, so that as they are volunteering in children’s ministry they are using their gifts to disciple one another and the children at Springbrook.
