WEEKEND MINISTRY

What Kids Are Learning in 2014

Each weekend kids from infants through two years old learn age appropriate lessons from God’s word, the Bible. Threes through sixth grade learn the same Bible passage making reinforcing Bible truths at home easy and fun. Below are the lesson plans for the month. Please be sure to pick up the weekly take-home paper or click on the link to take you to “Parent Helps”.  This take-home paper is filled with lots of fun, easy-to-do and meaningful ways to help learning God’s word go deep into your child’s life. A great question to ask when your child comes out of class is not “Did you have fun?” (That’s a given!), but rather, “What did you do?” This will help kids articulate what happened during class time so you can help draw application to the important, life-changing lesson learned.


Family Room Available: We are dedicated to children learning God’s word at Compass from infants through sixth grade. Our faithful ministry team is fully equipped and trained to teach children the important truths of God’s word. However, we recognize that there are occasions for families with young children to visit the Family Room. The Family Room is for both mom and dad to bring a young child who needs the comfort of his or her parent. While visiting the Family Room, in consideration of others, we ask children are quiet so the message can be heard.

KIDS Chapel is the first weekend of the month unless otherwise noted. Locations are:

Compass KIDS Room (A110 in the 150 building) – 4 year olds through Kindergarten.

Compass Room (B100 in the 140 building) – 1st through 6th Grade.

Parents: always check your children into their regular classroom first and the teacher will escort the class to chapel.
