Parent(s)/guardian(s),

I am so very happy to announce that starting THIS SUNDAY, October 4th, the K-5th class will finally begin to meet IN-PERSON again. Of course, things will look a bit different in the classroom, but we have already adapted so well to these requirements of mask wearing, social distancing, frequent hand washing/sanitizin, and so on. Parents, be on the lookout for a more detailed email in regards to how this will look.

Please be sure to register in advance if possible, so that we can better prepare the classroom and know how many to expect.

*If you or anyone in your household has COVID-like symptoms, please do not put others at risk and join via Zoom by emailing Amanda Grubb at [email protected] for the weekly link.

SO EXCITED TO SEE YOU IN PERSON!

Hello VineyardKids Parents/Guardians ...

As we begin the process of reopening the church, I wanted to make families aware of the following changes:

(1) Kids are allowed to join in our regular services with their parent(s)/guardian(s) if they sit with their parent(s)/guardian(s), and remain socially distant from others. This being said, we ask that children not be allowed to wander the church without adult supervision (this includes going to the restroom). Please have these conversations with your kids, so that they understand. 

(2) All VineyardKids classrooms (Nursery - 5th) are closed until further notice, as we are working on a plan to keep things sanitized and respect the guidelines that have been given to us. 

(3) VineyardKids meetings will continue online @2:00 on Sunday's via Zoom. Please email me at [email protected] for the link to join. 

(4) In-person meetings for K-5th will begin to resume at a later date, and this will be made known to parent(s)/guardian(s) via email.  

I look forward to seeing those smiling faces and teaching them more about the amazing Lord we serve!!

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.
