Faith Centered Kids

Sunday Mornings after Worship
(10:30am)

Ages 4-12

"If there's one thing we do best, it's children's ministry!"

Both born & raised in church w/ large families that were highly involved in children's ministry 
(Brandon's the older of 5, Abi's the middle child of 8), Brandon and Abi have firsthand experience in what works & what doesn't.

Before becoming Pastors, Brandon led youth group for Canyon Ferry Baptist church, then 6 months after marrying Abi, they both became youth pastors here.


 Abi is a former dance choreographer for youth Hip-Hop &           Break-Dancing. She has been a member of our church family since birth. Both Brandon and Abi attended Awana's children's ministry, & loved the age specific training, team discipleship, & reward system, which they have largely modeled Faith Centered Kids after.

We Excel in:

What is Caught vs What is Taught:
Our pastors & leaders believe in embodying an all-out passion for the joy it is to
worship God with all your heart. This is our #1 goal in teaching by example.
Our lives are a testimony that we serve the one & only living God.
If kids leave with one thing it should be that.

"This is why we are throwing ourselves into this venture so totally, 
we are banking on the Living God." -1Tim 4:11 MSG
 
Lesson retention:
Think your kids have poor focus & memory? Think again!
We incorporate everything from competitive goal setting, clever repetition &
muscle memory. Your kids WILL NOT forget what they learned. Just test us on that :)
 
Partnering w/ Parents:
We know the primary responsibility for growing your children in the Lord rests on parents, not pastors, so we go the extra mile to communicate & equip parents by; sharing our lesson topics, verses, games, songs & even recipes of healthy snacks the kids liked that you could make with your child. Most activities & recipes come with a Bible application that you can help your child remember. (Click here for current playlist of verses)
Communication includes us listening to your feedback & contacting parents to learn what works best to speak to your child & help them engage.
Please help us by fill out this 2-minute survey.
 
Discipleship:
Children 10+ are encouraged to become co-leaders that assist their adult team leader in handing out tickets for store day, keeping track of who said their verses, & are assigned to assist younger children throughout the program.

Age-appropriate teaching & correction:
We use examples of what it looks like at their age to apply God's truth.
All lessons & games are designed to engage ages 4-12yrs with any group size.
Every child is allowed to participate at their own level. We do NOT talk down to children, or force participation.
