June’s Theme


School’s out which means it’s time to start our 8 week summer series! This year it’s “Press Play: Get In The Mix”, and we’re focusing on Confidence.


Check out June’s week by week focuses below!



 

We’re Reopening!

This Sunday, September 13th, we’re restarting all of our elementary services! Sunday school begins at 9:30 am and Kids Church will kick off at 10:30 am. Wednesday night services will also return this week, September 16th at 6:00 pm.

For the safety of the team and students, everyone will be required to wear a mask, and students will be distanced when possible and appropriate. Student temperature checks will be administered at check-in, and our team will undergo temperature checks as well. Anyone with a temperature at or exceeding 100* F will not be allowed to participate. For the time being,  high contact supplies will be removed from classes, and those that cannot be will be sanitized regularly. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe and fun learning environment for our students and staff and appreciate your efforts in helping us maintain that standard.

New Year, New Seats

Y’all, I’m excited. If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you might have spent Monday trying to figure out what I was expecting to be delivered (and probably why I wouldn’t stop posting about it). Recently, kids church ordered new seating, and now it’s here!

If you’ve visited kids church or browsed our gallery page, you know our students have been using the same folding chairs for years. Now, we’ll be using these super cool risers, and I can’t wait to start using them this Sunday!

Connect With Us!

We want to connect with you! We’re on Instagram (@fvkids) and on Facebook (FVKids).

We also use a really cool app called BAND. We know, we’re not a band. Maybe a band of merry people? Anyway, this app allows us to share events, take polls, share files, and a whole lot more, and it lets us do it all with you, the awesome people who bring incredible young people to learn more about God. This is an excellent tool for us to communicate with you and for you to communicate with us!

Not only  do we use this app,  but our super cool youth group Echo Student Ministry uses this app too!  Parents, please download this app (available in the iTunes store, the GooglePlay store, and even online!) and then click HERE to join our group.

Wednesday Nights are Back!

We’re so excited because on January 8th, we’re back on Wednesday nights starting at 6:30 pm! In this new year, we’re still committed to having a quality midweek service for your kids, and part of that commitment means we have to change things from time to time.

Don’t worry. This change is spectacular, and it starts tomorrow night when you drop off your student(s)! We now have a check-in system for our midweek service in the FLC. If you join us on Sunday morning services, fret not! This is the same system, so we’re not springing anything terrifying on you. If you haven’t been with us on a Sunday morning, the system is simple and painless. All you have to do is come in the FLC, check in, and hold on to that fantastic guardian security sticker until you pick up your child(ren) after service.

We decided to add this system to our Wednesday night activities because we value the safety of every family who is involved in our ministry, and we want to demonstrate that this is our priority. We know it’s one more thing to keep up with, but the safety of our kids is absolutely worth it. We can’t wait to see you tomorrow night at 6:30 pm.

Thank you for a great year!

As the year comes to an end, our eyes turn to the new year, but I want to take this moment to reflect on the year and decade we’re leaving behind. First, I need to thank the incredible group of parents (be it biological, foster, or adopted), grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends, and more who have poured into the child(ren) in their life and encouraged their faith. Without you, we don’t have a ministry. Thank you. Thank you for trusting this ministry with your precious young people.

 

Next, I need to thank the fantastic group of people who serve in this ministry. You show up consistently, and you are making a difference not just in the future kingdom, but in the kingdom right now. Each of you brings something wonderful and unique to this ministry, and I absolutely could not do this without you.

 

Finally, I give thanks for the awesome body of Christ and your support for this ministry through your intercession, time, and love. Just as the body functions at its best when every part works together, the work of every member of the body aids not only their own ministry but every other ministry by extension.

 

Over this year and years previous, I have been blessed to watch this ministry grow in many ways as God does awesome and mighty things in families and in the body as a whole. I look forward to every great thing in the year and decade to come, and I thank you for joining the journey. May God bless you and your family this holiday season, and may we all grow in love and truth.

September is almost here!

Hey, gang!

We use such an awesome curriculum in kids church! Every month, we have a new theme, and with our theme we receive a song that reinforces that theme. Now this month we’re focusing in on Trust as we continue our adventure through the Bible, taking a long look at the life of Joseph (Genesis 37-45)!

Check out the companion song to these lessons below!
