KIDS AT STONE RIVER 

TO GET CONNECTED

CONTACT KATIE BLACK

Children are so important to us here at Stone River. We believe in nurturing them in a life of faith complete with a balance of play, worship, and bible study.

Our staff and volunteers undergo a training in our Safe Sanctuary Policy including an extensive national and state background check. We also utilize KidCheck to provide important medical and allergy info, pick up/drop off info, and name tags. It is also how we contact parents/guardians should a need arise.

BLUEPRINTS : KIDS SERIES

Blueprints are a kind of plan that helps engineers, architects, and drafters to know how a project should go. Plans are everywhere. Kids find plans at school, in their lego sets, and even in their video games. But the best kind of plans are the ones that help us grow. Through the life of Jesus, we're going to find out that God's plans are perfect, love is the foundation of God's plans, that Jesus said yes to God's plans, and most of all that we are included in God's plans.

The children’s ministry at The Church at Stone River strives to partner with families, church members and the community for the purpose of bringing children to know the immense love of Christ. By creating a safe learning environment, students from diverse backgrounds will be able to interact with God’s word and each other by making meaningful connections. The Church at Stone River values all students in their relationship with Christ— nurturing them in their love for God and service towards others. 

LENT PRAYER STATION FOR KIDS

Lent is a time to come together as a family unit as well as a church family to prepare ourselves for Easter.   There is much value in our 40-day process that helps unearth the deep truths of Easter... of being Easter people.

 The instructions are simple and it requires only a few minutes of time:

 - Light a candle

 - Read the scripture or say it out loud

 - Say the prayer

LIGHT THE CANDLE

This can be done as a family each morning, at dinner or before bed.

PRAYERS

Different short prayers are included each week of lent

For the printables, you can pre-cut them into squares and they are ready to go, or glue one on each page of a journal and walk through Lent that way.  You could also do this as a family at dinner and light the candle and read it then.   You can get creative with how you use these!

I pray you will be blessed as you lead your children toward their own journey with Jesus this Easter season!

MAY THIS BE A JOY-FILLED & HOLY SEASON FOR YOU!

SUNDAYS 

During the 8:30am worship service there are magnadoodles in the back of the sanctuary for kids to enjoy. At both the 9:30am and the 10:45am services, kids begin in the worship service sitting in the front few rows together with their leaders. This provides the space for them to get a taste of different worship styles, liturgy components, and important aspects of our faith expressions. During the 9:30am service they head to small groups divided by age and when they leave the 10:45am service they head into a large group experience with a mixture of topics, including dance parties and yoga at times.

WEDNESDAYS

Wednesday Nights for Kids at Stone River kick off with worship in the Sanctuary.  Then they go to Room 5 off of the gym for yoga stretching before they divide up in age groups to learn 6-7pm. It's a fast energetic time full of fun, laughing, and learning!
