teaching the gospel diligently to children
Kids Are The Next Generation
It is Redeemer Fellowship Church’s priority to equip parents to effectively disciple their children. While assisting mothers and fathers to lead their households in the teachings of Christ, the congregation is responsible to support them in their efforts. We devote ourselves collectively to teach the next generation the ways of God.
Our children’s ministry, Redeemer Kids, is designed to come alongside parents to teach the Gospel to kids of all ages; encouraging them to put their faith in Jesus and follow Him. Our volunteers fulfill this task by teaching Bible stories, reviewing scripture memory verses and catechism questions, loving each child, and praying for them in and out of class.
Each week, our volunteers:
Teach children the gospel which gives them the opportunity to hear the gospel from other adults in the church
Allow the children to see that the gospel is real as it is lived out in their leaders’ lives
Provide a safe and welcoming environment that shows kids that they are welcome in the kingdom of God and loved by God and His Church
Teach a Scripture Memory Verse or a Catechism Question
Pray for the children
We are committed to a safe and loving environment for your children. Because of this, all volunteers are members in good standing, have submitted to a background check, and adhere to a code of conduct determined by our Elders and Children’s Ministry Team. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to come alongside you as we all collectively seek to minister the gospel to the children of Redeemer Fellowship Church.
ages newborn to pre-k
During our 10:30 am service, we provide childcare in our nursery for children from infancy through Pre-K. The children will hear a Bible story, sing songs, play games, and have a snack. You can expect that your child will have a safe and fun time led by our ministry volunteers who have all submitted to background checks and love working with babies and toddlers. If you are visiting and your child will be in the nursery, we encourage you to fill out a child information sheet which allows us to best care for your little one. This will be given to you when you drop off your child. You can bring your child down to the nursery at any time before or during the service. There is also a nursing mother's room located in the back of the sanctuary if you would like to utilize that at any time.
ages pre-k through 5th grade
Children who are ages Pre-K through 5th grade will need to be checked in at the children's check-in table upstairs. After check-in, they will begin in the worship service with their parents/guardian, allowing for the family to worship together. Before the sermon starts, the children will leave together, following a Redeemer Kids volunteer downstairs to the children's classroom. During this time, children can expect to learn a Bible story using The Gospel Project curriculum, discuss the story and how all of the Bible points to the gospel of Jesus, have a snack, make a craft, practice their memory verse and catechism question, and play games to reinforce the Bible lesson. All of our Redeemer Kids volunteers have submitted to a background check and love teaching children. Children are also welcome to remain in the worship service with a parent/guardian.
ages 6th grade through 12th grade
Redeemer Youth who are in the 6th grade or older will stay in the worship service with their parents or guardians the entire time. At this age, we think it is important for older children to be able to hear the Word of God preached and be a part of worship with the congregation as a whole.
We recognize that youth-specific programming is beneficial and fun and so we offer a Youth Sunday School before service at 9:30 am that meets in the Parlor. We also have youth events held periodically throughout the year.

additional learning materials
Resources for Parents
1. Christ - Everything that Redeemer does should reflect Christ. He receives the glory from our actions.
2. Character - A collection of people, who are transformed and filled by the Holy Spirit, results in Christ-centered character.
3. Community - Christ said the world will know Him by our love for one another. Our unity as one people in Christ exposes the culture around us to the beauty of the gospel.
4. Commission - Christ commissioned His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations. A church which is Christ-centered is driven to fulfill Christ’s commission by reflecting Christ and following His command to share the gospel with those who have not heard- both locally and abroad.
