Kids are important to us, so we've created a place for them to learn about Jesus on their level. Our children's ministry, Kidzu, is a place where kids ages 6 weeks to fifth grade learn to trust God, make wise choices, and build friendships that last. Each week, kids participate in age-appropriate activities that teach the Bible in creative and relevant ways.
At The Vine Church, we believe in fostering spiritual growth at every stage of your child's development through purposeful action and partnership. Our Family Ministry Map will give you a glimpse into the journey your child will take from preschool to high school, where we seek to embrace their physical needs (Preschool), engage their interests (Elementary), affirm their personal journey (Middle School), and mobilize their potential (High School).
On your first visit, look for the area designated for first-time families. We will meet your family, check your child into our database system, and one of our trained volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room and introduce you and your child to their Kidzu leader. You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag.
After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you. In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen in the auditorium.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child questions like, "Did you have fun?" and "What did you learn today?" Each week, online we provide you with Parent Take Home that will allow you to engage in positive conversations with your child throughout the week.
It is our goal at The Vine to partner with you throughout all stages of your child’s life. We can’t wait to meet you on Sunday and get started!
Kidzu is excited to offer the Camp Kidjam experience to our rising 3rd to 6th grade children this summer. Kidzu will be joining Camp Kidjam at Lander University on June 8th-11th! We understand this may be the first time your child has been away from home. For this reason we have provided answers to many frequently asked questions as well as how to know if you child is ready for camp! Click Here to view this document as well as pricing information!
In our Kidzu hall way your will find a display of parent resources. You are welcome to look through age-specific parent help books, child devotions, and parenting books. These resources are available for purchase at amazon.com or orangestore.org. Along with these book resources we would encourage you to check out the online resources of the Parent Cue! Parent Cue includes a convenient app, blogs, podcast, and more all age specific to your child.
Follow us on social media for fun ideas, activities, and topics of discussion for you and your child throughout the week. By reinforcing what your child learns on Sundays, your child will gain an even better understanding of Jesus' love and friendship, and what it looks like to apply their relationship with Jesus to every aspect of their lives.
