During each of our three weekend worship services, Morning Star Kids offers engaging Christian education for children ages birth through 5th grade. Our staff and caring team of volunteers are dedicated to providing safe, exciting, age-appropriate experiences that kids look forward to each weekend.
KID CHECK-IN AND PICK-UP
After the worship service has ended, please pick up your kids from their classroom as soon as possible so that we can reset the room and release our volunteers. To manage people traffic, it is helpful if only one adult enters the children’s area during pick-up.
IMPORTANT: You will need to present the tag you received during check-in in order for us to release your child. If you happen to misplace your tag, a ministry leader will need to see your driver’s license or other official identification to confirm your identity and that you are authorized to pick up the child.
PARENT PAGING DURING WORSHIP
It’s also important that we have current mobile phone numbers for everyone in your family should we need to reach you.
INFANTS TO PRE-KINDERGARTEN
The Nest: Infants (6-weeks old) through Toddlers (18-months)
The Nook: Toddlers (18 to 30 months)
The Hideout: Preschoolers (2 1/2 to 3-years old)
The Treehouse: Pre-kindergarteners (4 to 6-years old)
Ministry to children at Morning Star begins when they are infants. As language develops (13-24 months), we begin introducing Biblical truths through prayer, frequent use and illustration. This pattern of prayer and instruction continues with toddlers (2 year olds) by building a Biblical vocabulary and helping children see a great God through Bible stories they can understand. A Biblical foundation is laid with preschoolers (3 year olds-PreK) as Old and New Testament stories reveal God loves me, God made me, and Jesus wants to be my Forever Friend.
- God made me.
- God loves me.
- Jesus wants to be my Forever Friend.
KINDERGARTEN TO 5TH GRADE
The Cabana: Kindergarten through 1st grade
The Hut: 2nd and 3rd graders
The Loft: 4th and 5th graders
When children enter Kindergarten, they begin developing their understanding of the Bible and learning how to live out Scripture in their daily lives. Children are encouraged to bring their Bible, memorize monthly key verses, participate in the worship experience, and invite their friends. As children progress through each grade they learn about spiritual disciplines and are provided with mission opportunities that allow them to begin learning responsibility and commitment within the Morning Star community. By the time they graduate fifth grade, we trust that every child knows and understands “I need to make the wise choice,” “I can trust God no matter what,” and “I should treat others the way I want to be treated.”
- I need to make the wise choice.
- I can trust God no matter what.
- I should treat others the way that I want to be treated.
