Children are a gift from God and it is our privilege to provide a safe environment that directs them toward the love of Jesus Christ. Our goal is come alongside the discipling work of parents to their children. We understand the profound influence parents have on their children and the design of God for parents to be the primary disciplers of their children, so our goal is not to replace the spiritual influence of parents on their children, but to assist and equip them in that work.
Children’s ministry is available for infants through fifth grade. If you have any questions, email our Children’s Ministry Director, Dolly Dietz.
Infants – PreK
We offer a safe nursery environment for children (infants through PreK) during the Sunday worship service (10:45am) and during our Sunday School hour (9:45am). In the nursery, preschoolers enjoy Bible stories, games, songs, and many other activities on Sunday mornings and are cared for by loving, nurturing teachers.
Kinney Kids' Time
K- 5th grade, Approximately 11:15am on the 2nd and 4th Sundays
While we love for families to worship together, we do offer Kinney Kids' Time as a gospel-centered alternative for children (K-5th grade) during the morning worship service. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, children are dismissed before the sermon. At Kinney Kids' Time, the children are taught gospel-rich lessons and the concepts presented are then reinforced through various small group activities.
K-5th Grade, 9:45am
In addition to our adult Sunday School classes (9:45am), we offer a Kids’ Sunday School class for children, K-5th grade.
We value the safety of our children. Our Child Protection Policy is in place at Kinney to do just that: keep our children safe! Our policy includes running background checks for all caregivers, providing child protection training for all volunteers, keeping careful classroom adult to child ratios, and more. If you’ve been a member of Kinney for longer than 6 months and would like to learn more about serving in the nursery, contact our Children’s Ministry Director, Dolly Dietz.
