In Orchard Kids, we strive to help build a foundation of faith for every child from birth through 5th grade. We are a family of missionary servants sent to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our team consists of called staff members and volunteers that are committed to discipling children. By the time a child leaves elementary, we hope they will have a clear understanding of the gospel from Jesus’ birth to His death and resurrection, as well as Biblical truths on how they can bear fruit and grow in a relationship with Him. Children will get a clear picture of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.

Join Us

Our Sunday morning experience for kids will revolve around a Christ-centered curriculum that points every Bible lesson back to Jesus. Orchard Kids meet on Sundays at 9:30 & 11:00 am.

Preschool

8 weeks - 5-year-olds

    • Infants through walkers are placed in rooms grouped according to developmental stages.
    • Two through five-year-olds are placed with their approximate school age friends based on when they will begin Kindergarten. Their Small Group time will include Bible discussion, crafts, and activities to reinforce the Bible lesson (45 min). They will also attend Large Group where they will worship, hear a Bible story, and learn a memory verse (15 min)

Elementary

Kindergarten - 5th Grade

  • Kindergarten through 5th grade Small Group time includes Bible discussion, crafts, and activities pertaining to the week’s lesson (40 min). Kids also attend Large Groups for worship music, game time, and a Bible lesson (20 min).
  • The Bridge is a preteen environment geared toward 4th and 5th-grade boys and girls to prepare them for the transition to student ministry. We break small groups up by gender to allow for deeper conversations and connection.

First Steps (Parent/Child Dedication)

First Steps is a special milestone for parents as they dedicate their children to the Lord and commit to being the primary spiritual leaders for their families. Two weeks before the First Steps event, participating parents must attend a parent class. The Sunday following the event, families will have the opportunity to go in front of the church to be prayed over. First Steps is a beautiful time for families to gather, worship, pray, and celebrate new life. For more information and to register, please email Michelle Burns

The Starting Line (Baptism for Kids)

The Starting Line is a 3-week class held twice a year for children in 2nd-5th grade with the purpose of partnering with parents as we teach Biblical foundations. This class is a prerequisite for child baptism at The Orchard Church. Sign your child up to join us on September 11th, 18th, and 25th. Email Jenny Beyl if you have questions.
