Children

We at Valleybrook Community Church desire to partner with parents in helping kids follow Jesus and grow in a personal relationship with God. We offer an exciting environment where God's word comes alive!

Join us for our Children's Ministry Experiences.

SUNDAY MORNINGS

VB Preschool: 3 year-olds - Pre-K 5 year-olds 10:20-11:30

Our Preschoolers begin Worship with their parents and are then dismissed to their classroom after the music portion of the service. The kids enjoy sensory play time, hear a lesson and learn a monthly memory verse all at an age appropriate level.

At the end of the normal class period these children are escorted to the gym where they will enjoy music and play from 11:30 - 12:15 pm. Parents must sign their children out inside the gym.

VB KiDz: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade (Older 5 - 9 year-olds) 10:20-11:30

Our Kindergartners through third graders begin Worship with their parents and are then dismissed to their classroom after the music portion of the service. These children participate in a large group time where they enjoy a lesson and are introduced to and practice the monthly memory verse. They also have a special small group time with activities created just for them!

VB KiDz Connect: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade (Older 5 - 9 year-olds) 11:30-12:15

During 2nd hour, a new group of teachers come in to lead some hands-on activities that will reinforce the lesson from the first hour.

D2 "Digging Deeper": 4th-6th Grade (Older 9 - 12 year olds) 11:30-12:15

D2 meets during 2nd hour in their very own classroom (off the worship area). The D2 group studies the same lesson as VB Preschool and VB KiDz, but at a deeper learning level. Each week the kids are challenged to dig deeper into God's word. Although the kids are busy digging, we still find time to play games and enjoy one another.

WEDNESDAY FAMILY NIGHTS - 6:45-8:00 PM (at Kaneland Middle School)

Family Nights run from September 20 through November 8 (break for the holidays). We offer a Nursery (Birth-PreK) IF you have signed up for nursery care, VB KiDz (K-3rd Grade), D2 (4th-7th Grade), Youth (7th Grade on up) and Adult Bible studies.

VALLEYBROOK COMMUNITY CHURCH PHILOSOPHY OF CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

Our Mission Statement

The Children's Ministry of Valleybrook Community Church exists to glorify God by helping children find and follow Him.

Our Purpose

Children's Ministry serves as an effective vehicle to strengthen the church as it glorifies God through sharing the gospel, supporting parents and strengthening the saints.

Our Practice

Evangelize - The Great Commission calls us to share the good news of Christ with everyone (Matthew 28:18-20).

Prepare the child's heart:

  • Pray for the child
  • Introduce the child to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to key Bible stories
  • Take a more detailed look at how each Bible story connects to the gospel
  • Review now familiar Bible stories to gain deeper understanding of their redemption in Christ as they begin to study Scripture for themselves
  • Encourage - The Church is called to encourage believers (Ephesians 4:12-16).

  • Bible Studies
  • Resources (articles, statistics and books)
  • Personal Shepherding
  • Equip - The Church has a mandate to equip Christians for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16) which includes children, parents and leaders.

  • Enriching Curriculum
  • Bible Studies
  • Small Groups
  • Service Opportunities
