Welcome to Konnect Kids!
Konnect Kids is for children (age 4- 5th grade). The children's program takes place during our main worship service as well as downstairs in our Konnect Headquarters where we have weekly engaging lessons and small group time with our Team Leaders.
We are a family church.
We believe that children are a part of the church today!
Children's gifts, talents and abilities are an integral part of our worship. Because of this, Konnect Kids follows the following format:
*We all worship and serve together for the first half of service! (Nurseries are available for newborns-3yrs of age)
*There is no minimum age required to serve or become a mentee of a mentor!
*Therefore, children can help lead worship, prayer, serve behind the scenes, & more!
Every week, families will sign in their children (age 4-5th grade) upstairs at the Information Desk and then join the service together.
Children and Konnect Team Leaders will be dismissed to Konnect Headquarters (downstairs in "Wesley Hall") at a midway point during the main service.
They will then experience a dynamic and engaging multimedia lesson provided by LifeChurch.tv. Each lesson incorporates and reiterates a Biblical theme/story, memory verse and point. After the lesson, children will break out into small groups where they will pray for one another, encourage one another, enjoy a snack and further discuss the lesson.
Every week each child will receive a "Challenge Card" to take home and complete with their parents/guardians. The Challenge Cards are designed to help you reinforce the lesson at home and further engage with your child throughout the week. When they return it signed by a parent the following week, your child will acquire points toward an overall group goal that when reached, will go towards a party of their choosing!
Children must be signed out on the lower level by a parent/guardian for the safety and security of your children. All adult volunteers are required to pass a background check before serving.
On months with five Sundays, Konnect Kids will remain upstairs with the adult worship service for the entire morning to help them further learn from and connect with the larger church family.
The goal of Konnect Kids is to help children (age 4-5th grade) discover the connections they were created for...connections with Christ, the Church (other Christians), and their Community.
We read the Bible and pray together, and talk about issues that teens are dealing with in their personal lives. Along with this we play “stupid” games to unwind and have fun. Several times a year, we also plan trips and outings to hang out together and to grow deeper in our walk with the Lord.
Youth meets each week on Thursdays from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM from September through May. Both Junior High (6-9th grade) and Senior High (9th-12th grade) programs meet during those times.
MOPSMOPS meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from September to May from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm. All mothers are welcome from those expecting to those children in 1st grade!
During these meeting times you can expect to fellowship during a dinner (dinner is provided through a meal rotation within the group of moms), a devotional and time of prayer, and a variety of special speakers and/or video presentations and breakout discussions. Sometimes games, crafts and special themes such as a “Pamper Night” are a part of the evening fun!
The dues/fees are $31.95 for the Annual Membership to MOPS Internationl and a $45/semester to Wesleyan Community Church. Visit: http://www.mops.org for more details!
