December is Family Experience Month + we’re so excited.
3 things you won’t want to miss:
1. A mid-week night of fun, food + activities for kids ages 3yrs-5th grade. Click here for info, a camp video, and registration.
2: Info about Sundays this month and the kids Christmas program, part of the Christmas Eve-Eve Service + Party, 6pm, 12/23.
3. See how many acts of kindness you can do with your family this month. It’s a way of welcoming Jesus who said that what we do for others, we do for him. Find great ideas here and have fun being a blessing this Christmas season!
Want to learn the songs we’re working on Sunday mornings? Sing along with us!
We have a great weekly program that runs throughout the year and there is always room for you.
Nursery (6 Weeks to 2 Years)
Pre-K - 1st Grade (3 Years to 1st Grade)
Elementary (Grades 2-5)
When you arrive please see our lobby check-in table where one of our Kids Team members will explain next steps.
At Renew we love seeing families worship and sing together. Kids stay with their families until after the opening music set when they are invited to join teachers near the check-in table and head to their programs. Infants & toddlers can be dropped off in the nursery at this time. Our nursery space is open to parents and children (3yrs and younger) all morning - please make use of the changing station, toys, etc. as you need but know there is no teacher in the room until the kids classes begin.
Following the service, children are checked out by a parent at their classroom door.
We also have a series of "busy bags" for littles who'd like something to do while they're in service with their families. Each one is filled with interactive toys, puzzles, and coloring supplies, which can be borrowed for the morning. Find them near the check-in table and on the counter in the nursery.
In all three Kids classes we utilize lesson materials created by The Meeting House. We find them to be accessible for kids and full of great teaching for helping little heads, hearts, and hands to understand the Bible and experience God’s love through Jesus.
A Podcast We Like... For Parents on the Go
From their website:
"Whether you’re dealing with a teething baby who won’t stop crying or a high schooler who won’t say a single word, you can identify with the challenges of parenthood. As a parent, you have the tremendous task of instilling your kids with a moral compass to guide them through the rest of their lives. With such an important responsibility, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed at times.
Parent Cue Live is a podcast designed to help parents do family better. We strive to help parents and church leaders understand how, by combining their influences, they can accomplish more for the spiritual well-being of a child than either could individually."
Family Experience (FX) Months
Throughout the year we have special months where we intentionally invite families to participate in church together, desiring that our kids know they are not the church of tomorrow but of today.
During FX month 2 special things happen:
(1) We host a Kids Camp - A free event for kids ages 3yrs-5th grade.
(2) We have children and youth in the service with their families for the month, bringing elements of Kids Camp to the whole church - We all learn a memory verse and an interactive song together and have special snacks for kids each week. These are high-energy Sundays that we so look forward to.
