Midway’s Kid Zone is divided into three groups. Our nurseries (infants to Jr. Preschoolers) use the Gospel Project for Babies and Toddlers Curriculum. Right now they are learning all about Jesus’ Ministry. Our Kids Worship group is actually two groups. The first group is Preschoolers and Young Fives and they are using the Gospel Project for Preschoolers Curriculum. They are also studying Jesus’ Ministry. The second Kids Worship group is the Kindergartners through Second graders. This group is our bridge from knowing the stories to learning how to use our Bible and applying the stories in our everyday lives. The curriculum used is Explore the Bible. Genesis, Acts, and 1 Samuel are being studied this Fall. The last group is Junior Bible Fellowship (grades 3rd-5th). This group attends the church service and then they come to class during the adult and teen Sunday School hour.
Outside of Sunday mornings we offer Awana for ages 4 years old through 6th grade. This program is designed to help us reach the children in the communities surrounding our church with the love of Christ.
Since 2015 we have offered a summer class specifically for the children of the church ages kindergarten through 3rd grade. This class gives the kids an opportunity to connect with each other during the summer when they may not see each other as often due to school being out and family vacations. A specific lesson is taught that is geared toward what the kids as a whole may be dealing with in their lives. We use crafts, games, food, singing, etc. to make it fun. We also gather for a picnic lunch after each class session.
In the summer we offer a non-traditional vacation bible school, Soccer Camp. It runs the first full week in August. This camp allows us to share the gospel message with almost 200 children from the community. We teach basic soccer skills, give away free stuff, sing, share Jesus, and have a ton of fun while doing it.
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
