Hello VineyardKids and Parents/Guardians ...

This morning as I read the book of Jude, I was reminded that time is in God's hands and we should praise Him ...
Jude 4:25, "All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.
I want to say from the depths of my heart, continue to praise and seek the Almighty God and you will find peace in this circumstance and every other circumstance to come.
Trust God! Read scripture daily! Pray daily ! Love your neighbor!
Teach your children to do these things - read together, pray together, love together ...

Here are some changes that are taking place during this time of limited contact with one another:

  • We will not be meeting in person
  • Recordings of weekly video bible lessons for kids will be posted online, so be on the lookout on our Facebook Page and/or YouTube Channel
  • Curbside craft projects in individually wrapped bags for anyone who is in need of some simple and fun entertainment! Bagged items will be brought to your vehicle. No one will need to get out of their car and come to the front door or enter the church. Pick up will be Thursdays from 4:00 - 6:00p.m., starting Thursday, March 19th. Call or text (518) 335-0698 when you are on your way or have arrived at the church. Craft projects will be prepared with sanitized hands and using gloves.

OUR MISSION

Our goal is to teach our children the basics of Christianity, bring them into relationship with Jesus Christ, and give them the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice by ministering to others.

Vineyard Kids provides quality children’s programming every Sunday worship service for all children 5th grade and under.

Vineyard Kids is a safe place for your child to have fun and learn something new and valuable each week. There is something for kids of all ages – babies, preschoolers and elementary age!

SAFETY

The Vineyard takes its ministry to children very seriously. With this in mind, all teachers must first be part of the Vineyard for 6 months, and be in good standing at the Vineyard. All volunteers must also undergo an interview as well as a national background check, screening process and training before they are able to work with or around children in Vineyard Kids.

SUNDAY MORNING PROCEDURES FOR VINEYARD KIDS

  1. Swing by the Vineyard Kids desk and check your children into Vineyard Kids.

  2. Parents/guardians return during offering to pick up their children so they may rejoin their parents/guardians for worship and communion. Once back in the sanctuary, parents/guardians are responsible for their children, and all children are encouraged to worship alongside their family/guardians. A dance area is provided for children who become restless. Children in this area are still to be supervised by their parents.

Reminder- Keep your cell phone on vibrate during service. If any issues arise the teacher will text you.

6 MONTHS TO 2 YEAR OLDS

In the nursery at Vineyard Kids, we strive to create a fun, safe, and friendly environment where babies and toddlers sense God’s love through caring volunteers, Bible stories, play, worship and other meaningful activities.

PRESCHOOLERS

Children at the preschool level are incredibly curious about the world, and are learning things at an extremely fast rate! The Vineyard Kids Preschool Ministry focuses on fun and engaging Bible Study appropriate for the preschool child, ages 3 and 4. Through Bible Stories, creative activities, and worship, children discover that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

ELEMENTARY

The Vineyard Kids Grade School Ministry for children in Kindergarten to 5th grade focuses on building the foundation of faith so that children can become world changers. Through music, drama, Bible Study, videos, games, and small groups, children come to know God more deeply and develop their faith. Children learn how to make wise choices, that they can trust God no matter what, how they should treat others, and that they have access to God at all hours of day or night.
