What is Kidjam?

Kid Jam is SSCC’s version of Sunday School using a large group and small group format to bring God’s Word to 1st-4th grade students in a memorable and creative way. During this hour children will spend time in age appropriate small groups where they will build relationships as they spend time in the Bible, memorizing Scripture and finding out how God’s Word is relevant to their lives today. In addition, children will be brought into a large group setting where they can be comfortable as kids with upbeat music and funny character actors that help reinforce the lessons. At KidJam we want your kids to walk away understanding three basic truths: I need to make the wise choose, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated. We call these truths our Must Knows. We will use over 150 different Bible stories, Bible verses and biblical values to communicate these truths. For more information contact our KidJam director Jim Towson: jimt@sscommunitychurch.com

Kidjam mustknows

I need to make the wise choice.

So I will trust and follow Jesus, spend time getting to know God, do whatever God says, and discover God’s unique plan for my life.

I can trust God no matter what.

Because He is my Creator, Father, Guide, and my Savior

I should treat others the way I want to be treated

So I will show God’s love to those around me, care enough to put others before me, respect whoever God puts over me, and be the right friend to those beside me.

What Happens at Kidjam?


Large Group

Your children will be brought into a large group setting where they can be comfortable as kids with upbeat music and funny character actors that help reinforce the lessons.  We use costumes, props, and characters from the story – anything that makes the Bible come to life. We also carve out time each week for kids to sing as loud as they want and tell God how much they love Him.


Small Group

We desire for each child to experience a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We also value children’s relationships within the Small Group setting as they relate to their small group leader and other children within the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow!

Small Group leaders help kids know how the Bible stories, written thousands of years ago, can apply to their lives as an elementary student today. Small Groups provide a forum for kids to open up and share their questions and comments in a safe, loving environment.

Volunteers

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.

When is Kidjam?

11:00am Kidjam (1st-4th grade)

F.A.Q.

What if my child needs me during worship?

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.

What about the safety of my 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

What curriculum do you use?

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.
