Strategic Programming

FBCITKidz Worship

Sundays
9:30am

Kidz Worship Jr. Theater (K5 1st Grade)

Kidz Worship Theater (2nd 5th Grade)

It is our desire each week to engage our kidz through an age-appropriate large group worship time.

THERE IS ONLY ONE YOU! God is one of a kind, with no beginning and no end. Everything God has created is unique and one of a kind, including people created in God’s image. Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create and solve problems. To see how we can do this well, we should look to Jesus. Jesus showed us what it means to be created in God’s image in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value—no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this as we discover who we’re meant to be and live out the individuality God gave us.
Week One: Our lesson this week comes from Genesis 1:26-28 where we will study about the Image of God. We will learn that we were all made in the image of God.
Week Two: We will look at Matthew 9:9-13 to see how Matthew’s life was changed when he met Jesus. We will learn how knowing God can change the way you see yourself.
Week Three: We will look at Lydia in Acts 16:13-15 and learn that we can use our gifts to help others.
Week Four: Our lesson this week comes from 1 Timothy 4:12 as we look at Timothy and how we can all make a difference at any age.
Week Five: We will look at 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 and learn how important it is for each person to do their part.

Life Groups

Sundays
8:15am & 11am

Children’s Building

We believe kids learn best in a small group environment, therefore, we have designated a specific time out of our Sunday morning schedule just for groups. These life groups give us opportunities to reinforce the main point of the day and talk about actual life application at the individual level. All classes are divided into grade levels for the best developmental engagement.

Midweek Kidz

Wednesdays
6:30 8pm

Children's Wing

We are so excited! Part of our MidWeek Kidz will include AWANA. We have had many kids go through our AWANA program and look forward to their special AWANA awards once they pass off sections and books. But, what if your child does not want to participate in AWANA? That is fine too! We want all our kids to be part of our MidWeek Kidz program.

Whether your kids will participate in AWANA or not, we ask that you register. Registration is $30, but this will go towards a cool MidWeek Kidz Tee with our new MidWeek Kidz logo, our Kidz store items, awards and our End of the Year Celebration time.

To register, visit the Welcome Desk in the Children’s Building on the 2nd floor or contact Michelle Hales for more information.
