At Slippery Rock Alliance, we value children. While children are the future, we also believe that the children are an equally vital part of the church’s present. Our goal is to see children come to love Jesus as they participate in the life of the church. Raising the next generation is a responsibility of the whole church, not just a select few.
We value the safety of each child. Because of this, we strive to make sure your children are cared for by active and competent adults. By performing background checks, we hope to keep proper personnel in each of our children’s ministries. By training our adults for discipleship, we hope to bear fruit in our classrooms and ministries. By praying for our children and ministries, we acknowledge God’s goodness in raising leaders for his church.
Kid’s In Christ’s Kingdom
KICK starts at 9:30 in our Sunday School hour. PreK-3rd grade meet in the Sheep Room, using Lifeway’s Gospel Project to learn how all the Bible stories are really one big story of God’s rescue plan for us. Right now they are learning about the first half of Jesus’ ministry with The Rescue Begins.
4th and 5th grade meet in the Peanuts Room. They are looking at Genesis, 1 Samuel, and Acts, using Lifeway’s Explore the Bible.
Everyone starts our 10:30 worship service together. We love to hear our kids singing and praising God with us. At 11:00, kids in grades k-3 are dismissed for another dose of KICK. Our current curriculum keeps the kids active and engaged in the lesson so that kids of all learning types get the message presented to them in the format they retain best. Kids in grades 4 and up stay upstairs, so that they can experience the entire service as a member of the congregation.
Nursery Services are available during the 10:30 hour for newborns through pre-K. If you ever need help finding the nursery room or a staff member, just ask and we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.
