ILC Kid’s (PreK – Grade 5)

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and 

talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”   Deuteronomy 6:4-9

ILC Kid’s is a ministry designed for children 3 years of age through 5th grade. This is an opportunity to connect with God, friends, and caring adults in an inviting and trusting environment filled with captivating Bible storytelling at their age level, age-appropriate activities that engage all different learning styles, and service.

If you decide that would like your child(ren) to be a regular attendee of ILC Kid’s we highly recommend that you enroll your child and make a commitment to attend the same hour of ILC Kid’s every week. Your child(ren) will then be able to form relationships with adults and children their own age.

Sunday School Options
Traditional Worship at 8:45
: Families will worship together up until the sermon. At that point, kids Pre-K through grade 5, will be invited to Grace Hall and led in an age-appropriate learning time through the end of the service. Parents, if they choose this option, will pick their kids up at the end of the service in Grace Hall.

Contemporary Worship at 10:15: Families will be together throughout the service. Because of the adaptable space in Incarnation Hall, we will have tables set up in parts of the space for families with younger children to sit together with age-appropriate resources provided for them to color, read, etc.

Wednesday Nights: Our hope is to have an abbreviated worship service from 6:00-6:30 that is available to all beginning in October. Following worship will be:

6:30 – 7:00 Children’s Ministry learning Pre-K through grade 5.

Families have many options:

  • Simply enjoy the experience of worship together on Sunday. It’s ok to just be together in worship and then strive to live a faith-filled daily life with your family. We will provide you with conversational and spiritual practice resources that you can do on your own.
  • If you have children Pre-K through grade 5, worship at 8:45 for a portion of the service and then have age-appropriate time of learning.
  • Worship together on Sunday and then learn on Wednesday.
  • Worship and learn together on Wednesday.
  • For those not comfortable gathering in-person there will continue to be an online option for you to do together as a family.
