KILLEARN KIDS MINISTRIES

We believe every child is made in the image of God. We want to create an environment where children are introduced to God and learn about God's great love for each one us through music, Bible stories, small group activities and discussion, and by building healthy relationships with each other and the adults who lead them. We believe we can have a greater impact on children when we partner with parents to present Christ in an age-appropriate way, help children grow in their faith, and equip them to eventually share their faith with others.

KILLEARN KIDS MINISTRIES ONLINE RESOURCES

 

We care about you and your family. That's why we are hard at work to find ways we can stay connected during this difficult time. We want to equip you with fun and engaging resources for you and your kids to use on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. 

 

SUNDAY MORNING

First Time Guests

We would love to have you worship with us this Sunday! All of our programs are in the Wesley Building, located on the north side of the Sanctuary.

 

10 AM - Each age group from Nursery through 4th grade has age-appropriate Sunday School for the hour. There are signs directing First Time Guests to the Nursery entrance where ALL children enter the Wesley Children’s Building.

Nursery

6 WEEKS - 2 YEARS

We provide nursery care and Biblical teaching to children ages 6 weeks old through children who turn three on or before September 1 during the 10am Sunday morning worship service. Children are split up by their age in the nursery. Our paid nursery staff have been background screened and trained to provide age-appropriate activities for children. 

 

In addition to learning about God, children who are walking get to play outside (weather permitting) on the fenced-in playground. All of the children are offered a snack, provided either by their parent or by the nursery staff. The nursery staff is very consistent; they have the opportunity to form relationships with your children and help them learn and grow.

For more information, contact Amanda Blanton at ablanton@kumconline.org or (850) 893-1116.

Preschool - First Look

3 YEARS - KINDERGARTEN

Everything we teach your preschoolers in First Look is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths. Our programs are constructed to meet your preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate Kindergarten they know these three basic truths:

 

God Made Me

God Loves Me

Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever

Each week, we send home a parent resource to share what your kids learned and our focus for the month. 

For more information, contact Theresa Savage, tsavage@kumconline.org or 850-893-1116. 

Elementary - UpStreet

GRADES 1 - 4

Everything we teach in UpStreet is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.

 

I need to make the wise choice.

I can trust God no matter what.

I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

 

Our program is designed to provoke discovery and invite your kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. We do this through Large Group worship and teaching, and age-specific activities and discussion. Each week, we send home a parent resource to share what your kids learned and our focus for the month. 

For more information, contact Mandi Lane at mlane@kumconline.org.

Elementary - The Bridge

GRADE 5

We realize 5th graders are not quite little kids and not quite middle schoolers. We want to help 5th graders prepare to transition to Killearn Student Ministries by developing faith foundations, learning how to relate to God and the Church, engaging in faith traditions and discovering ways to live out their faith. During the 10 AM hour, we offer a preteen group for 5th and 6th grader, separate from the younger kids. Kids gather starting at 9:30 for donuts and to hang out before the program begins.

For more information, contact Mandi Lane at mlane@kumconline.org.

 

COMMUNITY GROUPS

MOPS and MOMSnext

Connect with a community of women who gather to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women and leaders, in relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with the local church. MOMSnext is a similar community designed for meeting the needs of moms with school-aged children.

MOPS has two groups, a virtual group that meets online and an in-person group. The virtual group is full for this school-year. The in-person group has a wait list.
