At SOUTHWOOD we #THINKORANGE!
Join us Sundays at 10:00AM for 252 Kids for Ages 3-Grade 6
Nursery available weekly for Infants-35 months
We want to share with you some of the things that make our Sunday Morning Kids’ programs tick!
252 Kids Curriculum! Everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, I should treat others the way I want to be treated. The curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Each month features a new VALUE and LIVE APP (What God does IN us to change the world AROUND us). 252 Kids is dedicated to helping children grow in wisdom, faith and friendship.
Student Leadership Team! Our dedicated Youth (Grade 7-12) serve in FaithKidz in a variety of ways including Small Group Leadership, Worship Leadership and more, working to create greater connections across age groups to increase the faith development of both students and the leaders.
Time and space for parents to connect with each other! Meet other parents with kids in our programs, connect and get to know them. Each Sunday at 10:00AM there is COFFEE for the parents while kids have pre-service gathering activities!
Kids Preschool through Grade 6 Worship Together! Another opportunity to create greater connections across the age groups, and also give our youngest students the opportunity to worship and praise in our Worship Space before heading to their classroom with Miss Heather.
Small Groups! Students break out into age-defined groups in order to discuss the story each week, participate in activities that reinforce the monthly theme/life app and grow deeper connections with God and each other.
Monthly Family Worship! Kids get the chance to lead their parents in worship and share the music and Life App they’ve been learning. Parents will worship with their kids and then head into ‘Big Church’ for the message once kids go to Small Groups.
