Celebration Kids (“CK”) exists to honor God by developing loving and mentoring relationships with our children in order to raise them into passionate followers of Christ, who desire to make an impact for the kingdom of God. This is of paramount importance to us. We teach Biblical truths, investing emotionally, spiritually and financially in our future generation. We believe that these foundational years will mature their faith from a place of knowing about God to trusting in Him.
Partnering with Orange’s 252 Basics Elementary Curriculum, we focus on three main truths, designed to shape identity through planting these in the heart of every child:
I need to make the wise choice (Wisdom)
I can trust God no matter what (Faith)
I should treat others the way I want to be treated (Friendship)
The story of God reveals the character of God. That’s why 252 Basics Curriculum is organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them. Every month presents a new Life App and exciting theme (with decorations) to help children discover more about God’s character. And each Life App is unpacked through a weekly Bottom Line—a short phrase so easy to remember that it can be reinforced at home throughout the week.
Sunday morning CK includes 2 different experiences, one at 9:00 and one at 10:30. Sunday’s are designed for a child to come to both experiences, but each time period can also stand on its own.
We bring K-5th together for a large group, interactive Sunday School environment…focusing on a Bible Story/Lesson, Memory Verse and Elementary aged application of the lesson.
We take the same story from 9am and dive in much further with Large Group and Small Group environments, including Praise/Worship music, prayer, offering, skits, Bible readings, games, videos, mission moments, age-driven activities and small groups, and much more!
Celebration Kids is focused on the safety and security of your children. All CK volunteers over the age of majority undergo background checks and training. Upon arriving to CK you will be asked to check your child(ren) into our computer system and you will receive a security sticker to place on your child and one for you to keep, please show the security sticker at pick-up.
Planning to visit soon? Please send us a quick email, and we’ll get your child(ren) registered as visitor(s) into our security system before you arrive!
Wednesday evening includes SPARK. SPARK is a fun, energetic program for children K – 5th grade that allows kids to have a blast as they grow with Christ. In SPARK kids can focus on learning one Bible verse fully and retaining its words in their hearts each week. By balancing memorization with Bible study kids have the opportunity to learn the verse, learn the Biblical context, and learn how to apply it to their lives. Through activities like journaling, skits, games, experiments, mission projects and crafts children get to delve deeper with hands-on learning and application.
SPARK is a wonderful program to invite friends to at any time and a great way to focus on a deeper understanding of the Bible. Anyone is welcome to join us for SPARK – bring your hearts and bring your spirit – it all begins with a…SPARK! Questions? Contact Jolie Sims: firstname.lastname@example.org
