Elementary Kids (K - 5th Grade) meet each week in Kidville and have a couple different learning environments. Check under the “Activities,” question below for more information about what these unique environments look like.
LEARN: What will my child learn each week?
Elementary kids concentrate on 3 basic truths: I need to make the wise choice (wisdom), I can trust God no matter what (faith), and I should treat others the way I want to be treated (friendship). Children learn those 3 basic truths through a different life app each month.
LEADERSHIP: Who will my child’s leader be?
We have a trained team of leaders who serve our Elementary children in Kidville. Small Group Leaders serve weekly, providing a consistent presence to develop relationships with parents and children to help ensure their safety and knowledge of a loving God. All volunteers are background checked and attend several ongoing volunteer trainings each year.
ACTIVITIES: What activities will my child participate in on a given day?
Sundays - Sunday School (9:30-10:30pm)
In the Sunday School hour, children will learn through various hand-on activities like icebreakers, songs, crafts and video teachings. These activities help kids discuss and learn the Bible, while also giving them a tangible way to remember what is being taught. The curriculum we are using is 252 Kids by Orange. For great parent resources and ideas, check out Studio252.tv
Sundays - Kids Worship (10:45-12:00pm)
Kids Worship follows Sunday School and is for K - 3rd grade. This is a time to focus on what worshiping God looks like. We want each kid to walk away knowing that there are many ways we worship the Lord and understand the words we're singing matter because God alone is worthy of our praise. We also spend time learning from the Bible, gathering in prayer pods, and playing a game at the end!
Wednesdays - Kids Quest (6:00-7:00pm)
Kids Quest is a fun time where we learn more about the foundations of our faith using catechisms. We have a large group teaching time, games, and small groups. Through Kids Quest, your child will learn answers to both common and hard questions! Check out New City Catechisms for more information or to use at home.
Summer programming will vary. Please see calendar for summer activities.
SAFETY: Are there steps in place to assure my child’s safety?
Fredonia Hill is dedicated to creating safe environments for children. Upon check in you will receive two stickers, each containing a 3-digit code. One sticker will go on your child, the other you will keep. You must present your sticker that matches your child’s sticker for your child to be released to you upon pick-up. *Please note-your child can not be released to you without the corresponding sticker.
CHECK-IN: How do I check my child into the elementary area?
There is a check in station in the entrance of Kidville. If you are new to Fredonia Hill, simply let one of the check-in volunteers know and they will get you signed in.
PAGING: What if my child needs me before the service is over?
If at any point during the service your child needs your assistance, the 3-digit code you received upon check-in will appear on the screens in service.
