CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

Birth-5th Grade

We are deeply committed to the spiritual development of children.  We offer a variety of ways for children to grow in their love for God, their service to others, and their friendships with other children, parents, and leaders in a fun and dynamic way.  Visitors are always welcome to join us!

During our 9:00am service, we offer Sunday School for preschool-12th grade, as well as childcare for infants and toddlers.  Our Nursery is available for use during our 10:30am service.  We also offer online Sunday School lesson resources below, in our Kingswood Parents Facebook Group, and on our app.  

Sunday School and Parent Resources

MAY THEME
How many ways can you send a message? There are so many unique ways! Special deliveries are the best but even better are the messages found in each package. This month, we are going to look at the most important message that was ever sent out and how we are meant to be the ones delivering it. Kids are God’s messengers that can share the stories of God’s miracles and help. Get kids involved in helping God’s message go everywhere because God delivers everyone
