Welcome to Kingdom Rock: Where Kids Stand Strong for God
Each day, kids participate in small groups, called Crews, and discover what it means to stand strong for God! Not only will they experience epic Bible adventures but they’ll also watch for God in everyday life through something called God Sightings™. You and your kids will discover that God is active in our lives and that his fingerprints are everywhere!
Kingdom Rock is filled with unforgettable Bible-learning experiences. Kids will see, hear, touch, and even taste! All-new Imagination Station activities will give kids the royal treatment! Plus, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats keep everyone on the move.
Please register your children according to the grade they will be ENTERING in fall 2013.
Children MUST be four years old to begin VBS.
Our kids particpate in mission projects by bringing money for a special mission emphasis, and by donating items for local missions. Our 5th & 6th graders do hands on mission projects instead of regular VBS. The 5th & 6th graders will deliver the requested items. You will receive this information in your confirmation letter which you will receive by email about two weeks prior to the start of VBS.

Our preschool curriculum focuses on one key truth all month long. It engages the five senses, and helps children master the concept through creative activities. The goal is to help children believe: 1) God Made Me, 2) God Loves me, and 3) Jesus wants to be my Friend Forever. This curriculum encourages children to talk to God any time, any place. It also provides parents with ideas for conversation with their child at home.
We have a pager system in the nursery and it is available to any parent of an early childhood student.
Please ask any nursery worker for assistance.
9:30 & 11:00 Elementary Children
Our elementary program is for children from kindergarten through 4th grade. Our curriculum is built around three Basic truths every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52: “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” The three basic truths are: 1) I need to make the wise choice, 2) I can trust God no matter what, and 3) I should treat others the way I want to be treated. Each month, the Bible stories introduce a core virtue (such as wisdom, kindness, etc.) and a memory verse. Each week, children will bring home suggestions for devotions and ideas for conversation with parents at home. Elementary classes meet downstairs in our children’s wing.
5th & 6th grade class
The students participate in their own unique class that focuses on middle school classroom concerns and interests from a Biblical viewpoint. This class meets at both 9:30 & 11:00 a.m.
Between 9:30 & 11:00 worship
