Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Reopening Update: We are so excited to welcome back all of our families and children in Nursery + Preschool and ResKids! 

 

We have all been adjusting to new procedures and policies everywhere, and we recognize that experiences over the last 6 months have been different for many people. We have stayed prayerful in our decision making as we have sought to re-open children’s ministry safely and effectively and with the purpose of sharing Jesus with all the kids in our care. 

 

Ways we are minimizing exposure:

  • We have boxes of toys for each service time
  • We will be sanitizing any large toys, tables and chairs between services.

 

As always, if you have any questions, please contact us at nursery@reslife.org or reskids@reslife.org

 

NEW! Please note, Kindergarten is now located in the upstairs preschool area for Sunday mornings only. 

 

During this time we want to continue to engage the next generation and partner with you in ministering to your children. Below you will find links to the resources our awesome volunteers use weekly to teach your children the Word of God. You can also stay connected with each ministry on Facebook.

Wednesday Nights

 

K – 3rd Grade

K – 3rd grade students are dropped off in their classrooms. Once service starts, our night consists of praise and worship in the gym, lesson time in the classroom, games for boys in the gym, and craft time for the girls. All children should be picked up in their classroom when service is done.

 

 

4th & 5th Grade

4th & 5th grade students are dropped off in the Zone. Once service starts, our night consists of time to hang out and play, lesson time, and worship. Students can check themselves out or wait for their parents when service is done.

 

Sunday Morning

 

Kindergarten

Kindergarten students are checked into their classrooms to engage in fun, Bible-based activities where they have praise and worship and then a lesson. All Kindergarteners should be picked up in their classroom when service is done. Sometimes Kindergartners join the 1st through 3rd graders but are checked in and out of their classrooms during these special occasions.

 

 

1st – 3rd Grade

1st – 3rd grader students are checked into the gym for a power-packed service filled with exciting, age-appropriate Bible teaching. They learn God’s Word through stories, drama, creative object lessons, and characters. For the last 15 minutes we move to our classrooms for small group questions, answers, and prayer. All children should be picked up in their classroom when service is done.

 

 

4th & 5th Grade

4th & 5th grade students meet in the Zone for an age-appropriate service of their own. After service students can take a break, hang out with friends, or purchase goodies from the snack bar. Students can check themselves out or wait for their parents when service is done.
