Genkids is the birth through 5th grade ministry of Generations Church. It is a safe, fun and exciting place for your children to learn about God and grow in their faith in God. At Genkids, WE LOVE KIDS!
At Genkids you can expect:
Safe and Secure Experiences:
We use Planningcenteronline.com to check your kids into their classes. You will do this when you arrive at church. You will need to show your number when you pick your child up from class.
We also Ministry Safe to train our children’s ministry team and volunteers. We have quarterly training for teachers and parents.
Age Appropriate Teaching and Environments:
We have themed rooms that will capture your child’s attention and will spark their creativity as they learn God’s word.
We use Hands On Bible curriculum. The Bible comes to life for kids through interactive lessons. Kids will discover God’s truth in unforgettable ways, retaining up to 90 percent of what they’re taught! Kids come back week after week because every class is fun, playful, and packed with active learning.
We use Bible Bucks for fun and motivation:
The second week of the month we have Bible Bucks store for them to shop at.
They receive Bible Bucks for bringing their Bibles, Memory Verses and participation in class.
We believe in families worshipping together:
4 years old through 5th grade stay in the service with parents until after the offering and then they are dismissed to their classes. On the last Sunday of the month the 3rd through 5th graders stay in for the entire service. We believe that parents are the true trainers of their children and they will learn as they worship God along side you.
Your First Visit:
We want you and your child to feel secure on your first visit. You will be welcomed by a greeter or Genkid’s director who will help you get your child checked in at the foyer or at the entrance to the Genkid’s wing. The birth through 3 year olds are taken to their classes before church starts. We have a loving staff who will care for them, pray for them and teach them. You are always welcome to observe in your child’s classroom. Classes are divided up Birth-2, 2 to 4, 4’s & 5’s, 1st & 2nd grades, 3rd-5th grades.
