The Way Kids

We welcome ages 4 years through 5th grade. The children meet in age-appropriate classes, and spend an hour with dedicated, caring adults who love children and teaching God’s Word.

Typical Sunday Classroom Schedule

9:15 a.m.—Children meet in age groups to receive introduction to the lesson using handouts or other visual aids.

9:30 a.m.—All age groups gather in community to experience a video or other exciting presentation of the daily lesson.

10:00 a.m.—Children return to age groups to summarize lesson in language they can understand, and for closing prayer.

Our Curriculum

“The Gospel Project” is a Christ-centered study that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events—presenting the story of redemption through Jesus like kids have never seen it before!

Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more, exploring the life-changing experience of encountering Christ. 

Children's Christian Formation Staff
Kimberly “Kim” Johnson, Director, and a staff of experienced teachers are ready for the child/children in your family! These dedicated and Safeguarded Christian Educators prepare for each Sunday through their own study, prayer, and organization of exciting presentations.

Our faithful teachers of The Way are waiting to lead

your child/children to learn at the feet of the Savior!

When they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem to search for him. After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. When his parents saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, “Child, why have you treated us like this? Look, your father and I have been searching for you in great anxiety.” He said to them, “Why were you searching for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” But they did not understand what he said to them. Then he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them. His mother treasured all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favor. -Luke 2:45-52

 Even as a youth, Jesus knew that presence in the temple and participation in religious instruction and inquiry would be the foundation for his mission of salvation. The Gospels demonstrate how Jesus used his vast knowledge of the Scriptures, deep thought, and participation in communal and private prayer to change all of human experience.

 Our children are also called to sit with the teachers in the temple, just like God’s own Son.
