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.

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.
