Welcome to Valleybrook Children's Ministry!
"Let the litle children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdomof God belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14 (NIV)
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.
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 first hour 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 and encourage large motor creative play.
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's company.
WEDNESDAY FAMILY NIGHTS - 6:45-8:00 PM (at Kaneland Middle School)
Family Nights run from September through November (break for the holidays) and start back up January -March (check the church calendar for exact dates). VB KiDz (Preschool-6th Grade), Youth (7th Grade on up) and Adult Bible studies.
