Kids Ministry Monthly: November Updates & Resources

A DAY IN KIDS MINISTRY

You faithfully bring your kids to Discovery Forest, but do you ever wonder what happens between kid’s release and the end of the service? I’d love to give you a glimpse!

In the Nest, the little ones play and rest while we pray for and enjoy them. It’s such a sweet time in their lives. In the Message, Psalm 8 says that “infants gurgle praises about [God].” I love remembering that no child is too small to praise God! While this time for our littlest ones is largely unstructured, we are intentional, believing that creating a safe space for them to be loved by God is worth it.

In the Roots, we have a different Ponder Point each week that points out something about God that we see from one part of the Big God Story. Our activities, games, remember verse and worship are all centered around that week’s Ponder Point. Our hope is that as we explore the Big God Story each week, kids will remember something about who God is and know that they too, are a part of the story God is writing.
