Children’s Ministry at New Guilford Church
Vision & Purpose
To help children discover God in a personal way and to help guide them in their journey with Jesus.
We are committed to…
Using Biblically-sound curriculum, screening, and training volunteers, and maintaining a safe and loving environment. Our programs are designed through the year to help our kids learn to work, grow, play, and pray together.
We care about…
The spiritual growth of the children, the learning environment, and all children and their families.
Safety – The safety of our children is a top priority. We follow state requirements for background checks. All adults working with children – teachers, mentors, and other volunteers are required to have updated child abuse history and criminal record checks, and employees are additionally required to have FBI clearances on file with the church.
We also have parental sign in sheets. Parents/Guardians must sign in their children before entering the Nursery/Toddler area during service, Sunday School classes and Kid’s Club activities. We also require parents to sign out their children as well.
Wednesday Evening – Kid’s Club – Starting September 12th!
Clubs begin on Wednesday, September 12th. Kids from grades 1 through 6 are welcome to join us every Wednesday evening from September to April from 6:30 to 8 pm. We are excited to use Pioneer Clubs’ DELTA program this year. DELTA stands for
Disciples Equipped for Life Transformation & Action (Luke 10:27)
With DELTA, we will be exploring scriptures, memorizing verses, learning new skills and playing games.
Special activities include service opportunities, a fall field trip, a Pinewood Derby race, and an end of the year party.
We view our worship service as an inter-generational opportunity for the whole family. All children are welcome to use the worship bags and children’s activity sheets located near the water fountain in the narthex.
Kid Zone Basement
Our nursery is fully staffed on Sunday mornings during the worship service and Sunday School. Parents are encouraged to visit the nursery at any time to check on their baby.
Toddlers (18 months – age 3) and Preschoolers (3-5) are welcomed to play in the full-staffed Toddler Room during the worship service. During the Sunday School hour the preschoolers move to their own room down the hall. Both classes use age-appropriate curriculum with Bible stories, crafts, and singing. A snack is also provided.
Kid Zone – 3rd Floor
We want to make Sunday morning the best hour of your child’s week! Children in grades K – 6th meet during Sunday School for Kid Worship and interactive Bible story time. They are then dismissed into small groups divided by grade for activities designed to reinforce God’s Word.
This year’s Vacation Bible School was a big success even though we had quite a bit of rain!! We were at full capacity. Next year’s VBS will be held around the same time, towards the end of July. Be sure to enroll early to ensure your child doesn’t miss out on the fun!
Fall is right around the corner and we are planning special events for September and October. Check back for more information in the coming weeks! Better yet; like us on Facebook to get up to the minute info. facebook.com/ngbicc
