Children

Kids-3-1024x742

At BCC we are equipping His Kids to be powerful disciples.  Their faith and openness is incredible, and we value them as the future of our church.
Our dedicated and trained team of children’s ministry leaders work diligently to create a safe, welcoming, dynamic environment for children to grow and be encouraged in their walk with God. We team up with parents and the Holy Spirit to be attentive to who each child is, what captures their attention, and help them grow according to his or her giftings and needs.  We firmly believe that each and every child is competent and has something to offer the world. We do our best to activate and foster their potential through our actions, positive guidance, love and opportunities to explore, ask, create, share, and learn.

 

Nursery (ages 0-3)

On Sundays, we have a secure, staffed nursery to take care of your children aged 0-3.  Our Nursery Supervisor plans short activities, crafts, and story times. On Thursdays, the Nursery is self-serve where nursing moms or family members can bring their infants and children under age 3.   The nursery overlooks the main sanctuary and an audio feed of the service is available.

Preschool (ages 4-5)

Downstairs we have a Preschool Program for 4-5 year olds. This is such a beautiful age for kids to be discovering how wonderful God is.  Parents are invited to sign their children in at 10:20am.  The Preschool children join the Elementary students for a time of worship and prayer, and then go to their own classroom where they are taught an exciting and age-appropriate Sunday School curriculum. They are always sent home with a key scripture and Big Picture Question so that you can be a part of their learning.  Parents are invited to pick up their children at 11:50am.

*If you think your 3-year-old is ready to start Preschool, please speak with Meagan first. 

Elementary (ages 6-9)

We are very intentional in what and how we teach your kids!  Our desire is to equip them with the Armour of God and help them discover how very special they are.  The Elementary Sunday School program (for ages 6-9) runs each Sunday from 10:20-11:50am in our children’s area located downstairs. We are helping them to unpack Bible stories and encourage them to apply their learning and to memorize each unit’s Key Scripture Verse.  You can help them with this when they bring it home! We have lots of fun and take great care of your kids while you enjoy the service and fellowship upstairs! Click here for more about what to expect from our Primary Program.

Junior High (ages 10-14)

In Junior High, we dig a little deeper.  Our Junior High’s participate in corporate worship, and have a Bible Study just for them with a consistent mentor each week.  They will learn about the practices of baptism and communion and walk together as they explore a genuine relationship with Christ. We create opportunities for them to collaborate and fellowship with our Youth group to make the transition comfortable. When your child turns 14, we would love to discuss the options for next steps with you.

Parents Corner

Parents Corner is a physical space in the VCC Kids Hall downstairs where parents can connect with each other, ministry leaders, and what their child is learning. We created an online version so Parents can access resources, ministry leaders, and take-home activities from home too.

Volunteers are always needed!  Please contact Meagan if you are interested, feeling called, or want to challenge yourself, to serve in the children’s ministry.
