Pathway Kids Summer Plans

Beginning June 28th, be offering Pathway Kids programming upstairs at the 9am service ONLY. We will however have nursery (ages newborn to 4) downstairs at both the 9am and 11am. This is our temporary plan for this summer. We look forward to having full programming in the fall.

Our desire is to provide a safe, clean environment for you children each week. The following are some of the ways we are working to keep your kids healthy:

  • All volunteers will wear masks while serving.
  • All touch surfaces will be wiped, including bathrooms, door handles, tables, etc.
  • Toys will be sprayed with a special kid-safe cleaner before and after services.
  • Volunteers will wear gloves for serving snacks.
  • We have reduced the quantity of toys for ease of cleaning.
  • No take home activities will leave the building.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Pastor Sam at samv@pathwayvb.com or call the church office.

 

Pathway Kids

We truly believe that every child is a gift from God with a unique personality and heart.  We are here to teach children and their families to love God, the Bible, one another, and themselves.  We have created a fun, safe, age-appropriate areas for your kids from birth to 5th grade to enjoy, while you enjoy the service.

Infant through PreK-4

This is where kids will get their “First Look” at who God is.  Every element of our program centers on giving preschoolers a first impression of their heavenly father.  We meet preschoolers where they are at through age appropriate activities so that by the time they graduate to kindergarten they know these three basic truths…

*God Made Me

*God Loves Me

*Jesus wants to be my forever friend 

 

NURSERY- Birth-Age 2

We provide a safe, happy, secure environment for your little ones.  We strive to make each child (and parent) feel comfortable, cared for, and loved. 

 

PRESCHOOL- Age 2- Prek-4

Our group leaders teach about God and His love through hands-on activities, upbeat songs, engaging Bible stories, and playful experiences!

 

Kindergarten through 5th Grade  

This is where kids will discover how they can follow God, apply His Word to their own lives, and how they can build strong, godly relationships with others.  We use Jesus as our model for “growing up” and emphasize Luke 2:52, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and all the people.”

These are the truths we hope to instill in the hearts of our elementary kids before they leave 5th grade…

*I need to make a wise choice

*I can trust God no matter what

*I should treat others the way I want to be treated

Kids will all gather together for worship songs and creative storytelling, where leaders teach Bible stories in ways that include the kids, encouraging them to discover the Bible for themselves.  Then small group leaders will connect with specific age groups to reinforce stories, discuss what God wants us to learn from them, and encourage kids to apply God’s Word to their own situations.  Small group leaders create an atmosphere of love and acceptance where kids are encouraged to grow in their relationships with others and with God.
