Boys

At Vineyard Church we believe children are at the very center of the heart of God.  They are the church of today and the church of tomorrow.  By helping kids learn about and connect with God, we are sowing hope for the future of God''s church and of the world.  We welcome you and your child to join us as we worship together!


Our ministry with children is flexible, so that you, as a parent, can choose a worship format which allows your family to grow in relationship to God and to each other.  Children are welcome to stay with their parents in the adult service or to participate in the age-appropriate activities of Vineyard Kids. Browse the information included here to help you make your decision.

Infant Care

Your child may stay with you at your discretion. If you desire to place your child in the nursery, our loving, qualified caregivers staff a nursery for infants ages 6 weeks-24 months. This nursery is located on the main level. Access is from the foyer.  When checking in your infant, you will receive a number. The number will be displayed on the screens in the sanctuary if your child needs you.

Toddler Class

Our toddler class, meeting in a room in the lower level Vineyard Kids area, is designed to provide a safe, stimulating environment for our two- and three-year-old children. Your child will experience the love of God through the caregivers and will learn how much He loves them as they listen to a short Bible story.  When you check your child in, you will receive a label with a number.  That number will appear on the screens in the sanctuary if your child needs you.

**To protect our friends with severe life-threatening food allergies, this classroom must remain nut, egg, and dairy-free. To facilitate this we ask that all diaper bags and backpacks be placed on the rack outside the room. We will supply all snacks and drinks for this age group.

 

Vineyard Kids Class

Preschool - 4th Grade

Kids are active in exploring their environment, getting to know those around them, and experiencing the presence of God. The worship and large group times for Vineyard Kids are designed to help your child begin to explore stories in the Bible and how these stories apply to us today.  Our small group times help them to connect with God and each other on a deeper level.

Your child''s morning begins when you check them in to his/her classroom in the secure lower level Vineyard Kids area.  At that time you will be given your child''s name tag and number label for you in case your child needs you. (If you are needed, your number will appear on the screens in the sanctuary.) Your child will then go to his/her classroom, where they will be met by loving teachers and will engage in a small group activity that leads into the lesson for the day. Next, it''s time for worship! Children ages 4-4th grade gather together in the Vineyard Kids worship area for interactive worship and a large group lesson. Then your child will go back to his/her classroom for an activity to help them connect with the Bible story and with each other.

**To protect our friends with severe life-threatening food allergies, the preschool classroom must remain nut, egg, and dairy-free. To facilitate this, we ask that all diaper bags and backpacks be placed on the rack outside the room. We will supply all snacks and drinks for this age group.**

 

Pat giving Kids a special messageFamily Sunday!

The last Sunday of each month is Family Sunday. Your child will check in upstairs and join the adult service for worship and communion. This is a fun time of celebration as the kids help in such ways as leading the music and serving communion.The pastor will dismiss the children before the message. They''ll head downstairs with their teachers, through the side door in the sanctuary.
