Next Gen Kids Children’s Ministry is excited that your family is here! Programs of Next Gen Kids offer many opportunities for children and their families to fellowship and connect as they learn about God’s Word and His great love for them! If you have questions about Next Gen Kids Children’s Ministry, please email Brooke Knight, Director, or call (931) 647-0221.
Sundays 9 – 10 am
Seeking to work alongside parents to build a solid foundation for faith in our children, Sunday School is a time to dig deep in Biblical truth. In a small group with two adult leaders, children will participate in activities designed to help them learn about the Bible, see how they are important and loved by God, and understand how they can help share that love with others. Sunday School classes for 4 year olds (by August 15th) through 4th graders are held on the 3rd floor.
|4s (by August 15th)||Room 305|
|1st-2nd grade||Room 309|
|3rd-4th grade||Room 301|
Children’s Church ~ Kids Core
Sunday Mornings during Worship Service
All children age 4 – 4th grade are invited to participate in our Children’s Church Program, Kids Core. Following the structure of a worship service, children will learn more about God’s Word and worship in an exciting, child-oriented way.
Kids Core for 4 year olds and Kindergarteners will meet each Sunday. Kids Core for 1st–4th graders will meet on each Sunday with the exception of the first Sunday of each month. These days will give families an opportunity to worship together and for children to experience a traditional worship setting.
Children will be invited to dismiss at a designated time from the worship service to go to Kids Core.
|Pick up will be in the following rooms:|
|4 years old (by August 15th)||Room 305|
|1st-2nd grade||Room 309|
|3rd-4th grade||Room 307|
What a privilege and joy it is to care for little ones! Nursery classrooms for infants through 3 year olds (based on the school calendar) are provided in the west hallway off the Sanctuary located on the second floor.
On Sunday mornings, Madison Street Nursery is open from 8:30am-11:45am for small group and worship times. On Wednesday evenings, Madison Street Nursery is open from 6:00pm-7:15pm for our Wednesday night Thrive! program.
|Infants (6 wks-12 mths)||Room 205|
|Sturdy Walkers (1-2 yrs)||Room 206|

In an effort to be the best possible stewards of church resources, childcare for activities associated with Core Groups or Short Term Study/Small Groups outside the realm of regular, church-wide activities or meetings will be $2/child. This fee is requested to be paid in full for the extent of the sessions on the first meeting. For example, a 6-week Core Group would be $12/child. Please give payment to the Childcare Coordinator with a check or exact change at the time of drop off.
Wednesday Evenings, Dinner at 5 pm
Our Wednesday evening dinner and program, Thrive!, begins again on August 16th from 5:00pm–7:00pm. Dinner is served in the Fellowship Hall from 5:00pm–6:00pm. Dinner is $5 for children age 13-adults, $3 for children ages 6-12, $2 for children ages 3-5, and free for children 2 and under. The family maximum is $20. This program concludes on November 15 and will begin again in January.

August 16-November 15- 6:00-7:00 WAKy Wednesdays
The beginning stages of a calendar/rotation schedule for Kids Core helpers for 2018 is in the works! If you are presently serving, your name will not be removed from the list unless you request removal. If you are not presently serving, you are needed! Would you be interested in joining this ministry?
Here’s how it works: You serve during worship service once approximately every 9-10 weeks (about 5 times per year). You would serve on the third floor in the 1st-4th grade classroom along with a second volunteer and Brooke Knight. You would NOT be required to teach, (though you certainly could if you so desire) but would assist in the morning lesson. We have a lot of fun! Once the schedule is complete for 2018, you will receive it via email, so you will know the dates you will be serving for the entire year. If you needed a substitute for a specific Sunday, there is a contact list of subs on the schedule as well. If you are interested, please contact email@example.com.
