ABOUT OUR

children’s

Ministry

The Heights Kids exists to help our children to know and follow Jesus. Right now, that looks a lot different than it did a few weeks ago. We want you to know that we are on your team, we believe that God is mighty in you, and we believe He has equipped and called you to be the primary disciplers of your children!

Below you will find a guide for leading your children through their very own kids service every Sunday before online church, as well as some additional resources for your time at home.

We believe this is a great opportunity to exemplify that church is not a place, but a body of people. As well, this may be a special chance to engage with your kids– reminding them that we can trust God in any circumstance.

More than anything, we think your best opportunity to show your kids Jesus is in the real stuff of everyday life. There is plenty of that these days! We encourage you to press into this time to be present, honest, and learners alongside your children, as we all figure out how to move forward together. We love you, are praying for you, and can’t wait until we get to see you soon!

Memorize

Practice the Bible memory verse for this unit!

Romans 5:8.

Explain that when we say, “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” that means even though we didn’t ask for it, Jesus died for our sins. We did nothing to earn our salvation! How cool is that? What does that mean for us? How does this affect our lives?
