The fall is here and that means the return of our regular Sardis Kids program! We are so excited for what God has in store for your kids this year. We invite you to take a look at what we'll be diving into for November.
This month, we want to cook up a big Recipe For Thanks with our preschoolers! Thinking about the things we’re thankful for is the key to any recipe of thanks—and a thankful heart. We chose Recipe For Thanks as our theme because we want our preschoolers to learn how to have a thankful heart. Throughout the month we’ll hear about different things we can be thankful for. Week one, we’ll get to hear all about the time God gave Moses the Ten Commandments.
Yep, doing things God’s way is always the best way. We’ll learn about The Lord’s Prayer during the second week of the month. During week three, our preschoolers will hear the story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz, and that story is full of people who help! We will talk about being thankful for God giving us what we need with Psalm 23 during week four. Let’s work together to create a recipe of thanks that helps preschoolers and their families learn that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
November: Age 4-Grade 6
GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN GRATITUDE AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and you. Then, He sent His Son, Jesus, to that planet to die and be raised to life so He could have a forever relationship with you. Through the month, we’ll help kids refocus on all that God has done for them. Because when you know what God has done for you, YOU CAN BE THANKFUL—ALWAYS.

Camp by Memory
One great program we have for our Sardis Kids is Camp by Memory. Camp by Memory is a program to help kids memorize God’s Word and get money for camp!
Kids are given portions of scripture to memorize throughout the school year and recite what they have memorized to someone who will test their accuracy. If the scripture was memorized sufficiently, kids are awarded money for camp. We are happy this program is back for the 2017/2018 year and we encourage you to get your kids involved! Information is available through our Church Office.
Sardis Kids Cirriculum
Your kids mean the world to you. And we understand that you want them to develop a foundation of understanding in God to help them through life's questions and choices. That is why we pour ourselves into making kids experience at church relevant and meaningful in an age appropriate way.
Family is very important and we recognize you as the spiritual leader to your children. Our children's curriculum keeps that in mind. Our Sunday School curriculum for ages 2-grade 6 is from thinkorange.com. With this style of curriculum, each month focuses on a single Bible memory verse & life application ("Life App"). Through the month, kids explore this theme with Bible stories, games & discussion to make that truth memorable.
We're especially excited to partner with you in new ways to carry on that faith dialogue at home. Watch for the info your kids bring home and check out the online resources.

We take your children's safety seriously. Volunteers are screened and policies are in place for security and well being. We also work hard to create an environment where the children feel safe to express their opinions, ask questions, and always feel welcomed.
*Please note that if you require any assistance in locating where your child needs to be on Sunday morning, there are signs throughout the building indicating where the classrooms are located. As well, our front/back door greeters and Welcome Centre folks (anyone, really!) would be happy to direct you in the right place!
