At SOUTHWOOD FAITHKIDZ, we THINK ORANGE!
We’re so excited about our NEW program for Kidz! We are starting a new curriculum: 252 Basics and with it a new strategy: THINK ORANGE!! This new focus is a mandate to partner with families on their faith journey for the greatest possible impact on a child’s life. Check out our FaithKidz Facebook page for a video introduction to the program: FaithKidz on Facebook
We’ve added four exciting elements to the program …
... 1st, YOUTH LEADERS! Youth (Grade 7-12) will be serving in FaithKidz in a variety of ways, working to create greater connections across age groups to increase the faith development of the students and the leaders.
… 2nd, 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 will be COFFEE for the parents while kids have get-to-know you pre-service activities! (The Nursery will also be open at 10 for kids younger than 3.)
… 3rd, our Preschool Class will join in worship with the K-6 students! Another opportunity to create greater connections across the age groups, and also give our youngest students the opportunity to worship and praise.
… 4th, the last Sunday of every month parents will have the opportunity to worship with their kids! Kids will 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 Pastor Ed’s Sermon once kids go to Small Groups.
