1. Partner with parents by inspiring an everyday faith journey.
2. Teach kids about the gospel and their part of God's Big Story.
3. Develop leaders in all ministry areas who serve with excellence.
The Gospel Project
Our new preschool and elementary curriculum officially launches on September 9th! The Gospel Project takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that changes everything.
Connect at Home
Here at FAC, kids are learning about Jesus through interactive teaching, videos, games, and the relationships they develop with their leaders and peers. However, we think that parents are the primary disciplers of their kids, which means they have the privilege and responsibility of teaching their children about Jesus.
Family Reading Plan
Beginning September 3rd, parents, grandparents, or guardians are encouraged to read the upcoming Bible story together with your family. Just pick a time of the week and read the passage out loud. Kids will get a chance on Sundays to share what they already learned about the Bible story.
When you arrive at First Alliance, you'll be welcomed by a friendly greeter and guided to the check-in station located in the foyer. A volunteer will gather basic information so each child can receive a nametag and you can get a security tag, which you use to pick them up.
Babies, toddlers, and preschool kids can be dropped of in their respective areas anytime after 10:45am, where they will be lovingly cared for by qualified leaders. The nursery and preschool rooms are located very close to the check-in area and restrooms. Snacks are served, so make sure to alert the leaders if your kids have any allergies.
Kids in K-5th grade have a fantastic opportunity each Sunday morning to learn more about God and His big story. They start with parents in the sanctuary for family worship before getting dismissed to the gym for large group activities. Following the Bible story, they break into small groups.
Once the church service is over, parents are asked to promptly pick up your kids from each ministry area. Present your security tag to the classroom leader, who will verify that it matches the code on your child's nametag.
KEEP THE CONVERSATIONS GOING
Sunday mornings are an awesome time for kids to grow in their faith journey, but it's only one morning out of the week. Look for moments in everyday life to connect what they're learning about God to your regular life. Your example to them is extremely valuable. Take a few moments to tell your kids what YOU are learning about God too.
