Welcome to Cornerstone Kids! We look forward to getting to know you and your family! Cornerstone Kids ministers to children from birth thru 5th grade. Our vision is that kids would come to know Jesus personally and become life-long worshippers of God. Our aim in Cornerstone Kids is to provide age-appropriate lessons and activities that allow children to get to know our great God and deepen their understanding of His Word.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN DO WE MEET?
Cornerstone Kids meets weekly on Sunday mornings during our 10 o'clock service. Children Pre-K thru 5th grade will begin the service with their families in the sanctuary. Midway through the service, students will be dismissed to Children's Church for the remainder of the service. This allows kids the opportunity to participate in worship with us on a weekly basis. When dismissed, children will head out through the back of the sanctuary and be directed to a room where the lesson for the week will be introduced. From there, kids will be separated based on age to discuss the lesson in more depth and do games or crafts that correspond with the lesson.
On Sunday mornings, Cornerstone Kids will be going through Lifeway's "The Gospel Project" curriculum. Each week we will learn about a new story or section of the Bible, steadily working our way through the entire Bible with the kids. We have a theme verse for each unit that we encourage all kids to memorize. Games, crafts, and activities will center around the week's lesson to help with comprehension and retention.
In our current unit we are studying how Joshua led God's people into the Promised Land.
Unit Overview: When the next generation of God's people, led by Joshua, returned back to the Land of Canaan, God reminded them of His promises and that all of His words are true. Joshua and the Israelites would need to remember God's Word, trust it, and live in obedience to it if they were to conquer the land.
Big Picture Question: What is the Bible? The Bible is God's Word that tells us what is true about God and ourselves.
Unit Memory Verse: "Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path." Psalm 119:105
FAMILY WORSHIP SUNDAYS
When there is a fifth Sunday of the month we have Family Worship Sundays. We believe that a crucial part of a child's discipleship is seeing the older attenders worshipping, praying, and learning together. So, on these Sundays we provide nursery care for infant thru 3 years old, but Pre-K thru 5th grade will attend worship with their family in the sanctuary.
Nursery is available every Sunday for ages infant thru 3 years old for the entire service. Our goal in the nursery it create a safe, engaging environment where Christ's love is poured out. If you are more comfortable keeping your infant with you during the service, we do have a parenting room that is available for you to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment. This room offers a live view of the service.
Here at Cornerstone Family Church your children's safety is important to us! Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Children's Church program the first time that you visit. If it is your first time visiting us, please arrive a few minutes early to check-in at our table and a volunteer will be ready to help you check-in for the first time. Then each week when you check-in, your child should already be in the system and we can print out your child's tag for that Sunday. All Children's Church volunteers over the age of 18 must have a background check completed prior to working with our children.
