K- 5TH GRADE
Our KIDZ church is the most amazing children's program you will ever find! How do we know? Because our KIDZ team is full of passionate people (who have passed a national background check) whose mission is to train and demonstrate to kids how to choose and live the abundant life that Jesus paid for them to have. It's KIDZ ministry on steroids! Bibles required.
October in KIDZ City
This month our series is Bold! All month long we are teaching kids about the words we speak and how important speaking good, positive words are. The scripture we are focusing on is Romans 1:16//For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes! By the end of the month our goal is for KIDZ to know how important being bold about the right thing is! We have something special to share with others that can forever change their life, so we should be bold!
Mark 16:15 tells us to go into our world and tell everyone about Jesus! We don't believe that scripture is just for adults! Each week we give out a Recess Devotion and encourage kids to spend a couple minutes at recess each Thursday sharing Jesus with their friends and the testimonies we hear back are AMAZING! chooselife KIDZ are changing their world! To pick up your Recess Devotion, stop by the Planning Station located in KIDZ City!
We believe in the Bible and the importance of reading the Word each and every day so each month we have a Daily Devotion designed just for KIDZ! Our KIDZ Daily Devotion is easy to read and understand and the perfect way to train kids that the Word is the most important and reading it every day isn't just necessary, but also fun! To pick up this month's devotion, stop by the Planning Station located in KIDZ City!
In KIDZ city we are adamant about teaching your young person regardless of their age that God loves them and He has a specific plan for their lives. We are honored with the opportunity to teach them and train them each time they are in service. We realize that the voice of the parents is still the loudest voice in their head, so if you are interested in how you can be a part of your child’s spiritual growth right at home, here are some things that you can do:
To help your child in KIDZ church grow at home, make conversation a priority! Talk about the Word, emphasize what they are reading in their daily devotion. What you praise you will see more of. Praise what counts for eternity. How they shared their recess devotion at school, how they dealt with an issue at school or with friends, etc. Let them see you doing your Bible reading at home, pray together before bed as a family. If you have a reader, there are great Christian chapter books in The Filling Station that will help your child grow in things that matter. During KIDZ church Bruce sometimes shows up to help us build on what we are learning, and that means that sometimes Willy comes to wreck things that we are building (of course he never can), but this interaction is designed to reiterate what your child is learning in a fun way and again remind the children that the enemy may try to wreck things, but we are victorious.
As a parent, regardless of how long you have been saved, how much you do or do not know about the Bible, you have to tell yourself everyday, with the help of the Father, YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES. Refuse to parent out of fear or shame. Allow the Spirit of God to help you. Resource yourself with books about parenting from The Filling Station. Love them hard, correct them when needed (love is correction), they want you to lead them NOT befriend them! We are working with you to see these kids grow up into the young men and women that God has called them to be!!
Make these confessions each day and pray this prayer. You can also head to the chooselife app and have your child confess the confessions made just for kids their age.
My Children are taught about the Lord and great is their peace. The peace of God abides in my children.
I plead the blood of Jesus over my children and I commission the angels to encamp around them to protect them from all harm.
I declare that they are healed and whole from the top of their head to the soles of their feet. They are healed by the Stripes of Jesus. I declare that no disease, germ, virus, infection or plague can touch their body and live. The blood of Jesus flows through their veins.
(Psalm 91//1 Peter 2:24)
My children have the mind of Christ and are ten times smarter than the rest of the kids.
(1 Corinthians 2:16//Daniel 1:20)
My children are a gift from the Lord, and I will enjoy them.
My children honor and obey me; and will have a long life.
My children do not have a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind.
(2 Timothy 1:7)
No weapon (negative words) spoken over my children shall prosper.
I speak the Word of God only over my children because the Word is health (medicine) to their flesh.
Father, In Jesus name, I thank You for my children; I recognize that they are a gift from You. I ask You to give me insight to train them up in the way they should go so when they are older they will NOT depart from the Word. My heart’s desire is they live for You all the days of their life. Help me to communicate with them in such a way that they understand that I love them and have their best interest in my heart, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
