Connectionland is for preschoolers through 4th grade and is designed to support parent’s efforts in laying a spiritual foundation for their children. Connectionland is held in the Multi-Purpose room on Sunday mornings from 9:15 am to 10:15 am. During this time we teach the Bible through music, drama, teaching, and group interaction.
The fist stop is Activity Stations designed to provide a fun, child-centered, welcoming environment. Then, gifted communicators, music and motion, drama, puppets, and videos teach the Bible creatively to the children in a large group program. The children then gather into interactive small groups where they learn how to apply to their every day lives the Bible truth that has been presented.
We Adhere to Six Core Values:
Safe for kids physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Fun place for kids to go.
Child-Focused in our approach to make sure this is the BEST hour of every kid’s week.
Relevant Teaching that kids can apply to their everyday lives.
Intentional Shepherding through small group interaction facilitated by volunteers.
Teach the Bible creatively through curriculum and programs designed to reach today’s kids.
What if a younger child has a difficult time separating from a parent?
Goodbye can be difficult for little ones. We have found that the easiest way to help your child transition is to give a hug and a kiss good-bye and leave your child with one of their Shepherds to engage in activity stations. Lingering can make separation more difficult. It is normal for young children to cry at separation, and is usually short lived. Be assured of our attention and intentional care of each child we are entrusted to. If crying persists of a preschool age child, we would like to ask that you would take him or her to participate in TenderCare and use that as a transition into Connectionland.
