At KCC Kids, we believe your kids are not the future of the church; we believe they are the church right now! Our incredible team of volunteers are background checked, trained and prepared to give your kids – the church – a fun, safe and impactful experience each and every time they participate in a class or event hosted by KCC Kids. Through games, crafts, videos, stories, songs and more, your kids will learn Bible stories, important life applications, memory verses, easy to remember Bible points and so much more! Come check us out on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings or during special events! We value you and your kids and can’t wait to see you soon!
We have an exceptional nursery staff to take care of your babies and toddlers before the age of two in an environment that is developmentally appropriate for their needs. Our infant nursery cares for kids before they begin walking consistently with the utmost attention and hospitality. In our walking nursery, we sing songs, watch videos, play with toys, hear stories and learn how to cooperate with peers in an engaging environment. We know your young children all have different needs and schedules; just let us know how we can best care for your children and we'll work together to make it happen! Nurseries are available from 9:00a - 11:00a (or until service is over) on Sunday mornings.
Our toddlers and pre-K students learn through Grow Curriculum. This curriculum is exciting, fresh, engaging and, most of all, Biblically informative and spiritually transformative. Each Sunday, kids will learn a Bible story and a Big Idea through crafts, snacks, games, motor skill activities, songs and videos. In March, 2024, we will be learning about the passion and resurrection of Jesus through the theme “Glow in the Dark” and understanding the Big Ideas of: “Jesus is the light in the darkness,” “We can choose Jesus,” and “God hears our cries.” After our 9:00a class, we encourage families to sit together and worship in service for a few minutes before our toddlers – Pre-K kids return to class for Kids Church! We will not have Bible class on March 10 as we break for spring break and the time change. On Easter Sunday, March 31, join us for a special class time as we get into the minds of people who saw the resurrected Christ through the Easter Family Witness Experience.
Our kids in grade school up through fourth grade use an adaptation of the Journey Land curriculum from Memorial Road Church of Christ and slap a little KCC Kids flare onto it. Each week, your kids will experience something different through our rotation-style curriculum. In the span of about a month and a half, they will hear historical context of a specific time or story in the Bible in HIStory, hear a story in Story Garden, play games to reinforce the stories they are learning in Base Camp Games, make something to help them remember a story in God's Masterpiece, watch videos and understand a story through movies in Now Playing, and learn some of the basics in Bible Basics. In March, we will be learning about Paul's teachings and missionary journeys. We will not have Bible class on March 10 as we break for spring break and the time change. On Easter Sunday, March 31, join us for a special class time as we get into the minds of people who saw the resurrected Christ through the Easter Family Witness Experience.
The students might call it a vibe; we call it KCC Kids 56. We know there comes a time when a student outgrows kids ministry but hasn't quite grown into middle school ministry. KCC Kids 56 comes into that gap to create a chill learning environment where students can feel comfortable and engaged while participating in some in-depth text study applicable to 21st century life. From fall 2023 - spring 2024, our students will be walking through the Gospel of Mark and seeing his depiction of the second Exodus. "When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." -Psalm 34:17-18

Kids of all ages have classes on Wednesday nights during the school year, too! Classes for nursery, Pre-K, K-1st, 2nd-3rd and 4th-6th happen from 6:30p-7:30p! Wednesday nights give our kids a relaxed environment with loving volunteers that creates great avenue for friendship and mentorship. Whether through the Bible timeline or kid-friendly themed Bible studies or advanced applicable Bible knowledge or simple Bible points, your kids will be given an environment to grow spiritually and Biblically. Oftentimes, we will have dinner together before class starting at 5:45p. Check the events on the home page of this site to get details!
We put a high value on family time together in church. That's why we create kids bulletins and provide praise packs for our kids to use during worship. We expect our elementary kids to be in church with their families and create intergenerational relationships with those around them. For our pre-K kids, we know sitting through worship for an hour can be especially difficult. After participating in the first few minutes of worship, we invite our kids 2 years - pre-K to join us in Kids Church! There, you can expect to sing, dance, craft, snack, hear a story from the Bible, play games, and more! We do our best to provide a learning environment most conducive to our youngest kids. In February - March 2024, we will be learning about the kings of Israel and Judah and how Jesus was the perfect king via the series "The Right Kind of King." Head to the Parent Hub for complementary resources and more info! We will not have kids church on March 10 as we break for spring break and time change. We will, however, meet on the fifth Sunday this month as we celebrate Easter!
In the summer of 2024, KCC Kids will be diving into the theme “Run.” We all run all the time. We are always running toward one thing and away from another. It’s important we choose the right thing to run toward. Elijah ran away from the danger of Queen Jezebel and toward the presence of God. Eve ran toward the serpent’s advice and away from God. Paul says in 1 Corinthians, “In a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize … run that you may obtain it.” In order obtain the prize of eternity, we must run toward Kingdom.
