kids come to learn
Every Sunday, volunteers show up and work together in their unique role to create an amazing environment for our kids. KidJam is totally volunteer fueled and wouldn’t exist without the leadership and expertise of our volunteers. Each volunteer has a part to play on our team. Some of the volunteer roles are: Small Group Leaders, Greeters, Hosts, Actors, and Production Members.

KidJam navigation guides: The Navigation Guides should provide insight into raising children through the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual challenges they encounter in elementary school.
Classroom map: This map can help you find your children after KidJam each week. The maps are posted in the building as well.
Fridge card: The monthly fridge cards provide ideas for how to engage your child in discussions about what is being taught each month in KidJam.
God Time Card: God Time Cards are weekly devotionals for kids and parents to do together; integrated with 252 Basics.
If we need parents during service, the number on the sticker will appear on the screens in the Main Sanctuary. Parents should then proceed to the information counter in the atrium to find their child.
We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. Therefore, every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened with an
interview and federal background check.
You will need to register at the check-in desk to receive a check-in tag and security stickers. The stickers serve two purposes:
Parent Paging and Child Pick-up. You must present your portion of the sticker before we release your child
We use 252 Basics curriculum, “Orange.” Orange is what you get when you combine two primary colors—red and yellow. If you paint only with red, you will get what only red can do. If you paint only with yellow, you will get what only yellow can do. But when you paint with red and yellow, you’ll get new possibilities, fresh solutions, vibrant outcomes.
We use the color orange to symbolize what it means to parent beyond your capacity.
Orange parents understand that by tapping into a wider community, they have the potential to make a greater impact in the lives of their children.
The average child will spend over 1000 hours every year in school and they will spend less than 50 hours at church. The average parent has more than 10 times the opportunity to discuss the spiritual issues in one year than a church leader does in 10 years. The church has limited potential to impact the heart of your child. WHAT HAPPENS AT HOME, in many ways, is more important than what happens at church.
We have volunteers and staff creating ideas every week, crafting environments and coaching kids to help them grow up the right way. BUT WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU.
We need you to help us help your kids by talking about it every week at home. Remember, no one can have more influence on your child’s faith than you can as a parent.
