StoryHeights Kids

We are crazy about kids at StoryHeights. To us, kids ministry shouldn’t be babysitting where we just keep them quiet and out of the way. Instead, we believe the best and most critical time to connect a person’s story to God’s story is during childhood. We say SH Kids is where the story begins. We do everything we can to make the SH Kids’ weekend experience fun, exciting and engaging!

All children ages 6 weeks to 5th grade are welcome to enter into our kids' classrooms, or what we call the "StoryLand Library." Your child will be cared for and engage in age-appropriate worship, Bible stories, and activities. In addition to weekend services, all kids are welcome to join us in Servolution outreaches and serve at the weekend experiences and other events. We always provide SH Kids services in all SH events and environments for your convenience.

Our kids’ team does everything can to equip your kids to love God with resources and great activities you can use at home. We also host events throughout the year to engage your kids with God’s story to help you create a love for God’s House in their hearts.

FAQ

What curriculum do you use?

Adventures (K - G4): We use The Orange curriculum's elementary program called 252 Basics, based on 3 basic, powerful truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52. The curriculum focuses on a different, godly principle each month and aims to encourage kids to discover more of who Jesus is and grow in their relationship with him.

Heroes (walking - Pre K): We also use The Orange Curriculum in the Heroes classroom. Their First Look program is especially created for pre-school aged children, with interactive play and lessons. It is designed to give toddlers their first look at who God is and his love for them.

Bookworms (6 wks - 2 years/walking): No curriculum is used, we focus on safe, fun, interactive play in a loving environment.

Orange comes along with weekly parent resources to facilitate continued conversation and to support kids in their walk with God. Be on the lookout for these in your inbox!

Who are the teachers?

Each classroom is lead and taught by StoryHeights volunteers, all of whom have gone through the SH Growth track and have passed a background check.

Please note, for the safety of every child, only StoryHeights volunteers wearing a red SH Kids shirt are allowed in the StoryLand library. Please do not enter into the classrooms without prior permission from the teacher.

What should my child expect going into church?

SHKids is a Bible Teaching, Jesus Loving, Fun Seeking environment. God is a father, and fathers love to have FUN with their kids, so we have fun in God's house with high energy games, engaging worship and interactive lessons. Each week kids ages 2-Grade 4 will learn about a different Bible story and how that connects to their everyday lives.

Will my children be fed during service?

On special occasions such as holidays and Super Sundays we provide treats for the children during service. You are welcome to send your child to church with a water bottle or snack to service. If your child needs to be fed at certain time, please let their classroom teacher know. And please do remember we are a peanut-free environment.

What if something happens with my child during service?

Upon checking your child(ren) into the StoryLand Library you will receive a check in card with your child(ren)'s ID number on it. If in the case of an emergency, extreme behavior or an inconsolable child, the ID number will appear on the screen during service. Upon seeing the ID number, the parent should report to the check in kiosk to pick up there child.
