Orchard Kids 

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Orchard Kids

Orchard Kids ministers to newborns all the way through Elementary age children. When you arrive at Orchard Kids, there will be a friendly host to greet you and walk you through the check-in process. You will want to arrive a few minutes early to register your child, but once you've registered you're all set for the following weeks.

We believe that parents are the primary faith trainers of their children. And, because we believe so strongly we want to equip parents  every week.  Each week each child is sent home with a Parent Cue card to further the discussion from Sunday morning into their home. We call them Parent Cues because they’re designed to help (or “cue”) parents to reinforce biblical truths at home. Be sure you make it home with this great resource every week!

If your child may be sick, but you're not sure if you should bring him/her to church please see our "Well Child Policy."

Preschool

Our number one desire in preschool is to equip parents to impress a genuine and lasting faith in God on the hearts of their children. Before your child is born, we urge you to “begin with the end in mind”. We want to inspire parents from the very beginning to invest in those things that will matter the most to their child’s future. We want them to know that the very most important decision their child will ever make is to put their faith and trust in their heavenly Father.

Our primary platform for investing in families and children is through our Sunday morning environments at 9:00 and 10:45. It is our aim to provide a safe place where parents feel comfortable leaving their kids while they attend worship - a place where committed adults invest in their children through meaningful interaction and engaging curriculum.

Elementary

Everything we do at Orchard Elementary is focused around the goal of helping your kids understand what it means to be in a relationship with Christ. We are committed to this vision by teaching God's truth through interactive biblical teaching, worship, small group discussions, and encouraging kids to find ways in their home and community to serve others.

During the Orchard Kids service, your child will participate in Large Group time where they will engage in live worship, interactive Bible teaching, and game time. They will also go to Small Group for 30 minutes where their leader will facilitate discussions, lead application activities and have prayer time.

 

Help Serve

There are several different areas to get plugged in based on your gifts…teaching, building relationships, entertaining, helping with production, discipling, welcoming families or helping with preparation for Sunday! We’d love for you to come in and observe a Sunday morning in Orchard Kids to see where you would like to jump in and make a difference.

First Steps (Child dedication)

First Steps is a special event for parents to dedicate their child to the Lord as a commitment to raise them in a godly environment to know and love the Lord. This event takes place as a separate service. Two weeks prior to First Steps event, participating parents are required to attend the parent class. If you would like to participate in the next First Steps please e-mail .

The Starting Line

The Starting Line is a 3 week class for all (2nd semester) 1st graders through 5th graders. Our goal is to partner with parents to help build a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ. We will cover topics such as: who God is, who we are made to be in Christ, sin, repentance, how to use our Bibles, baptism and much more! We want to help kids understand that He created us for a reason and we are all a part of God’s story. This class is a requirement for kids wanting to get baptized at The Orchard Church.
