Children have been seen as a vital part of Village Church since its beginning. Every effort is made to include children in planning for our church family. It is our intention to help children grow in the knowledge of the goodness of God’s love, as expressed in the person of Jesus Christ until the time that they claim the faith as their own.

KIDS' KINGDOM (K-5th GRADE)
Children in Kindergarten and first grade have their very own curriculum developed for this very special age. Lessons are rooted in Bible stories that reveal God’s amazing grace. Children and their team of devoted and nuturing teachers celebrate the meaning of God’s grace in their lives through fun activities, prayer and singing. Children gather in God’s grace and learn to respond joyfully in gratitude.
Elementary children in grades 2nd through 5th enjoy ten rotational classes. Bible stories are taught in five-week units through kid-friendly multimedia workshops. Preschool Classes meet in first floor classrooms and signs will direct you. The curriculum is Bible-based and is designed to make God’s word relevant to young children. Kids’ Kingdom classrooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Education Wing.
