Another year has come and gone...but there isn't a better time to make a fresh start and dive deeper in our relationship with Jesus. Check out what we have planned for your kids in February.
February: Preschool (Age 2-4)
Jesus loves everyone is the sweetest news we will ever share with our preschoolers and since sweets are a HUGE part of this month with all of the heart shaped cookies and candy hearts we decided the perfect theme for this month would be SWEET SHOP!! We will hear the stories of how Jesus loved the woman at the well, Zacchaeus, the unloved woman, and Peter. What’s wonderful about all the love Jesus showed these people is that He has the same kind of love for you and me and every preschooler that we get to teach each Sunday. We want our preschoolers to grow up knowing that Jesus loves us all, no matter what, and He will never stop loving us. So get your sweet tooth – and your heart – ready for a super sweet month filled with the good news that JESUS LOVES EVERYONE! It’s going to be one, huge, sugar overload, not because of candy but because Jesus’ love is just that big and sweet!
February: Elementary (Grade K-6)
GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN KINDNESS AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY
God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus personified kindness in the way He lived and interacted with the people He met. But, as we read the Gospels, we find that Jesus didn’t just model kindness. He commanded it. By treating others the way we want to be treated, we live out the way Jesus taught us to live.

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!
