Kids Ministry (1st – 5th Grade)

The goal of the Kids Ministry at Tabernacle is to partner with parents in laying a foundation for salvation and building up spiritually healthy kids for life.
 
Tabernacle Kids invites children to have fun while learning about Jesus and growing in their faith through weekly LifeGroup classes, Kids Worship, Wednesday programming, KidVenture Camp (VBS), PreTeen Camp, plus much more!
 

What to Expect on a Visit:

Every child will be greeted with a smile and will check in with our secure sticker system. The check-in process is quick and easy; guardians can obtain security stickers at either the Preschool welcome desk or the Tabernacle Kids Welcome Center on the second floor of the Education Building. Guardians are given a matching security sticker that must be turned in when picking up your child from the classroom.
 

Sunday Morning Schedule:

    1st – 3rd Grade

    • 9:15 am – Kids Worship – Large group, high-energy, engaging worship for kids using The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum
    • 10:45 am – LifeGroups – Small group Bible study, divided by grades, using The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum

     
    4th – 5th Grade

    • We encourage 4th – 5th graders to attend Worship with their parents at either 9:15 or 10:45 am.
    • A special LifeGroup for 4th and 5th graders, IMPACT 45, is offered at 9:15 and 10:45 am. The two classes are identical so families can decide which hour works best.
    • IMPACT 45 is a small group Bible study designed specifically for PreTeens. In this fun class, we use The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum.

 

Wednesday Schedule:

We will be returning with our Wednesday night activities for kids on August 31.
 

Equipping Parents:

Tabernacle Kids recognizes the parents’ role as the primary disciples of their child as found in Deuteronomy 6. Tabernacle Kids desires to partner with parents in the spiritual development of their child. Throughout the year, several parent discipleship classes are offered, including fall parent meetings, January parenting seminars, and Foundations New Believers classes.
 
Parents are encouraged to stay informed by signing up for Remind texts by texting @tbckidmin to 81010. Parents will receive updates through the Remind text app.
 
Because we recognize that we are a reflection of God’s love to the kids in our care, we take seriously our responsibility to provide a safe environment for the children who attend Tabernacle.

How to Talk to Your Child About Salvation:

If you child has questions about becoming a follower of Jesus, use these tips as you talk to your child:

    • Pray. Ask the Lord to guide your conversation.
    •  

    • Allow the Holy Spirit to lead
      As much as you may like to do so, you cannot make a child accept Jesus. Only God can draw children to Him (John 6:44).
    •  

    • Remain conversational. Ask open-ended questions, instead of yes/no questions.
    •  

    • Do not jump to conclusions and avoid giving more information than a child needs.
    •  

    • Continue asking questions based on the child’s response. Some children may only want affirmation or want to please the adult. The child must sense a “need” for a Savior, not just simply want to do something good.
    •  

    • Speak in clear terms.

The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
