Children Matter

Divider text here
ThornCreek Church Children’s Ministry desires to come alongside children, families and Ministry Partners to equip them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ! "I am the way and the truth and the life…” John 14:6

We believe your children are people who can make a difference in the world TODAY, not just in the future! It’s our goal for children to be transformed by the love of God, to grow in their walk with God, surrender their lives to God, and be a light in the world for others to know God in the same way.

Memory Verse: Acts 1:8 (NIV)

Main Idea: The Ascension of Jesus

Kids Services Online at https://live.thorncreek.church/ Sundays @ 10:15am
     Recording available below, after 10am on Sundays.

**5/24/20 Video will be posted as soon as possible. Sorry about the inconvenience!

Parents: This is your opportunity to take the spiritual growth of your children to the next level. Watch the service together, then talk about what you learned! Here is a great starting point, in case you aren't sure where to begin.

TALK: Mr. Kevin said there was something special in the balloon to make it go up and up. The balloon had helium in it. But Jesus didn't have helium in Him - He has something very different and way more special that is in Him, and can be in us to, to give us power... Look at Acts 1:8 and talk about what that something special is that can be in us too, if we ask Him into our heart!!!

MEMORIZE: Acts 1:8 (NIV) "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samari, and to the ends of the earth."

ASK: 
1) What instructions did Jesus give His disciples before He returned to heaven?
2) Why did Jesus say they needed to wait for the Holy Spirit?
3) Why were the apostles staring up at the sky?
4) Where did the apostles go after Jesus ascended?

ACT: Who is someone you can invite to church this week? Use this Invite PDF to invite that person to church!

CREATE: Use the PDF to create your own picture of Jesus' Ascension! You'll need: the picture, somethings to color with, scissors, and glue. You'll also want string and a piece of tape to allow Jesus to ascend into heaven!

CONNECT: ThornCreek Kids Ministry facebook page is a great place to connect :)

PRAY: Talk to God as a family!

Safety & Classes

Safety

Divider text here
We take special measures to take care of the children entrusted in our care. Every volunteer goes through safety training and has passed a background check. We have security measures in place in case of an emergency.
Opens: 15mins before service Closes: 15mins after service We require every child who attends church to be checked in and wear a name tag. Name tags are printed each week. Parents will receive a corresponding tag to pick up their kids and are required to turn it in and match when they pick up their children.
Please inform us of allergies or health issues your child may have to help us keep your child safe and know how to help them. (Our Nursery, Toddler, and PreK classes normally have Animal Crackers for snack. The Elementary Class will occasionally get candy, but children can only eat it with a parent/guardian’s permission. Fourth and fifth grade are served donuts.)
If your child has experienced fever, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours; or if your child has something that could possibly be contagious, we kindly ask that you don’t check your child into his/her class. Thank you so much for understanding.

Classroom Information

Nursery

Please bring a diaper bag with supplies your child may need while he/she is at church. Include diaper changing supplies, snacks/drinks, and an extra change of clothes. We have Animal Crackers for snack if you don’t bring one for your child.

Curriculum

We use a variety of Bible based curriculum to engage children. Through small groups and age appropriate activities and centers, children will experience God’s word in fun ways. Our desire is to instill lifelong habits of a Christ follower at an early age, in hopes the kids will carry them into their teenage years and adulthood. Throughout the service, we model and teach them what it looks like to Obey God, to Love Others, how to Daily Worship God, the value of Small Group Involvement, the importance of Attending Church, what it looks like to Serve Faithfully, was well as and Giving Sacrificially.

Weekly Family Devotional

Every Monday we e-mail parents a family devotional to do during the week. Parents have a big impact on their child’s spiritual growth. Use these weekly devotionals as a springboard to discuss the weekend lesson as a family!
