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 that is God centered and Jesus focused.  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

The Good Book Club               June 4 - August 27 @ 9:00am
Who doesn't love a great book?!
This summer, K-5th graders will stick together each Sunday School class and begin with a great picture book about loving our neighbors and including others.  We'll do it all in book club fashion with small group discussions to answer questions together and connect it to the Bible...The Good Book!  
Games will be played, art projects will be made, and of course the occasional snack may be enjoyed.  
Book browsing, book reading, bookmaking, bookmarks, and book themed prizes all summer long.

AND...Pajamas and Popt'arts' is back!!
Every 2nd Sunday this summer (June 11, July 9, August 13),
kids are welcome to wear their jammies to church and start in the Sanctuary with families for a Children's Sermon before we head back to Sunday School to eat poptarts, read a great book,
and make some really cool art with Mr. Zane.
Check out our latest Summer Sunday School featured book
and see what we're learning about.
Read this week's scripture and talk as a family.  Use these conversation starters to get the discussion going. 

Children's SUMMER Sunday School...9:00am most Sundays 
At 9:00am, the Nursery team is ready to take care of babies and learn alongside preschoolers up through 4 years old.
Our rising Kindergarten through 5th grade students will stick together for Summer Sunday School.
**The Nursery is open for families to use during our 10:30am service.**

2nd SUMMER Sunday of Each Month...PAJAMAS and POPT'ARTS'
The 2nd Sunday of each month, children are welcome to wear their jammies to church and begin in the Sanctuary with their family.  After the Children's Sermon, we will head to Sunday School for delicious poptarts and amazing art with Mr. Zane.

On occasion, we will not have Sunday School, in order to give families a chance to worship together.  It's SO IMPORTANT for kids to learn how to be in the service.  

Check out this article about why.

Our featured book will be Not for me, please!  I choose to act green. by Maria Godsey.  The Good Book Club will learn that we all can do our part to take care of God's Creation.  Wear your walking shoes, sunscreen, and sun gear, as we'll be taking a prayer walk outside and cleaning up the church grounds of trash.   We'll connect to scripture in Genesis 2:15.

What's Happening Outside of Sunday School?!

Summer (June through August) is busy and lazy all at the same time.  
It should be, as God calls us to take time to do different things and refresh in Him!          Isaiah 40:28-31

So…be sure to take God with you…and His Word!...everywhere you go this summer.  Grab your Bible or your Bible app on your phone/tablet to read God’s Word in all the summer places.

Contact Miss Jenn for travel boards to guide your family in reading God’s Word all summer long.  Each time you complete a reading, mark that square off somehow on your board.
When your family has completed all 60 readings (YOU CAN DO IT!!!), bring the completed boards to church to collect an incredibly cool devotional book for your family…I mean, seriously…it’s really cool!!

Praying for good times with The Good Word this summer!
