Sundays

Brook Hills Kids’ Sundays are alive, fun, Bible focused and Christ-centered gatherings in a welcoming and safe environment. There are two Sunday morning gatherings beginning at 9AM and 11AM coordinating with the main worship times.

Small groups are the most important component of the Sunday morning experience. These are grade-specific groups where children connect with the same friends, same Faith Trainers (a.k.a., teachers) at the same hour - EVERY SUNDAY! Dads and Moms, this is the “secret sauce” that produces the greatest impact and builds lasting godly relationships.

Here’s what a “typical” Sunday session looks like:

Check In and Drop Off - Accompany your children to one of the check-in stations and drop them off at their small group room.

Small Group (pre-session) - Faith Trainers and children engage in activities and discussions introducing the morning Bible lesson.

Large Group – All children and Faith Trainers gather in the main room for lively song and praise, Bible memory celebration, sharing life events, prayer and a Bible message from one of our large group teachers.

Small Group - Faith Trainers and children return to their rooms to unpack the Bible lesson in a more personal age-specific context. This period includes prayer, Bible skills and a sweet or savory snack.

Pick-up – Children and Faith Trainers wait in their rooms for parents to arrive. Faith Trainers release children to parents who present a “Pick-up” tag matching their child’s nametag.

We are trekking through the Bible using the excellent Gospel Project material produced by LifeWay.

Treasuring up God’s word in our hearts is a big part of what we encourage and celebrate at Brook Hills Kids. The memory verses for Sunday and Wednesday are integrated allowing children to master the passages and provide ample time for boys and girls to grasp the life-changing meaning. To learn more, see the Bible Memory section on the “Resources” page.

Wednesday

Brook Hills Kids’ Wednesday evenings features our very own Ignite! It all happens on the 3rd floor, mid-August through mid-May, from 6:30PM to 8:00PM.

The big idea of this mid-week ministry is to ignite children’s passion for Jesus, His Gospel and His great mission. Boys and girls come with their Bibles and their fastest running shoes. Bibles are for the engaging large and small group learning experiences. The running shoes are for the heart-pumping room-shaking game time.

Here’s what a “typical” Ignite! session looks like:

Check In and Drop Off - Accompany your children to one of the check-in stations and drop them off at their small group room.

Small Group (pre-session) - Faith Trainers and children engage in activities and discussions introducing the evening lesson related to the Gospel or the current mission focus.

Large Group – All children and Faith Trainers gather in the main room for lively song and praise, Bible memory celebration, prayer and a large group message related to the Gospel or the current mission focus.

Small Group & Game Rotation - Faith Trainers and children return to their rooms to expand on the large group message in a more personal age-specific context. This period is broken up by a full tilt game time followed up with a small snack and drink.

Pick-up – Children and Faith Trainers wait in their rooms for parents to arrive. Faith Trainer release children to parents who present a “Pick-up” tag matching their child’s nametag.

Treasuring up God’s word in our hearts is a big part of what we encourage and celebrate at Brook Hills Kids. The memory verses for Sunday and Wednesday are integrated allowing children to master the passages and provide ample time for boys and girls to grasp the life-changing meaning.

Every Day at Home

What happens every day at home has the potential to impact a child’s faith much more than what happens during our Sunday and Wednesday gatherings at Brook Hills Kids. That said, what happens at Brook Hills Kids is critically important, too. But we recognize God’s primary time and place for shaping children’s faith is every day at home. That’s what God communicates to parents in this passage:

“. . . these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise”. Deuteronomy 6:6, 7

Since we recognize parents’ primary role in this privileged, yet enormous task, Brook Hills Kids is committed to support, equip and encourage you along the way. One of the main ways we do this is by preparing excellent weekly experiences for your children and keeping you informed and integrated into what’s happening. For example, each week we communicate with you and include the lesson focus and Scripture passage for the coming Sunday. Also, when your children master their Bible memory passages, we direct them to you to quote the passages and to receive credit toward our incentive program. These are just two examples how we support you in discipling your boys and girls.

Another way we do this is by providing or pointing you to resources that will help you raise children with enduring and thriving Christian faith. Please see the “Resources” page for available materials.
