YOUR KiDS WILL LOVE CHURCH
We come alongside families to embrace and engage KiDS to form a growing and committed relationship with Jesus.
A PLACE FOR ALL KiDS
We incite wonder to help kids embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination.
We EMBRACE KiDS so they:
Know God’s Love | Meet God’s Family
During Sunday time with us, preschoolers get a first impression of their loving Heavenly Father. This keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. Through FUN Groups, age-appropriate worship, play and more, we incite wonder for God in their hearts. Embracing their physical needs helps them to feel safe.
What is a Phase?
A phase is a time frame in a kid’s life when you can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future.
Phases guide parents and leaders through the Phases of a kid’s life with ideas on how to understand the specific stage they are in, how to give them what they need and how to navigate the critical issues they will face. At PTCUMC KiDS, our environments, curriculum and overall strategy revolve around these phases.
Our job is not to redefine God at every Phase, but to help kids rediscover God in a new way at each Phase. In doing this, we want each kid to be moving in the right direction in their relationship with God, in their relationship with themselves/identity in Christ and their relationship with their neighbor–the Great Commandment.
MATTHEW 22:37-38 | THE GREAT COMMANDMENT
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love Him with all your mind. This is the first and most important commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
So, what does this mean for you as a parent?
It’s simple. We, the church, want to come alongside you to cheer you on, equip you, and help you parent at every phase of your kid’s life. We want to make the most of each of those stages by integrating this strategy into our programs and ministries. In doing this, we will assist you in understanding kids in the phase they are in, how to give them what they need now, and how to navigate the critical issues they will face.
