Welcome to Threshold Kids!

Threshold Kids is our children’s ministry to kids from birth through fifth grade.  It is our privilege to welcome and care for each child who joins us!  We provide a safe, fun environment where children engage in worship, lessons, and activities led by loving staff and volunteers.  Our programs are designed to lead children through the BIG picture of God’s story that they might discover and share His great and perfect love.  The Gospel!

Our Curriculum:

Nursery - Babies and young toddlers will be lovingly cared for by dedicated volunteers.  They will hear that God made them and God loves them through stories and special music.

 2 & 3 Year Class - Our toddlers are introduced to the Bible as one complete story of God’s love.  Each week they experience part of that story through the Show Me Jesus curriculum.  They respond through games, crafts, and worship.

4 Year - Kindergarten - Preschoolers at Threshold continue learning the Bible as one complete story through a combination of gospel centered curriculum and stories/videos from the Jesus Storybook Bible and video series by Sally Lloyd Jones.  They respond through worship, play, and art. 

1st - 3rd Grade - In early Elementary education we present curriculum that aims for heart transformation as children see how the gospel is present in the entire Bible.  Not simply Bible stories, but the story of the Bible.  Their time with us is divided into two main components, large group and small group.  During large group, we present God’s story to them through music, drama, and the What’s In the Bible, Church Edition video series by Phil Vischer.   Small group time is for reenforcing what they learned through art, games, and discussion with friends and small group leaders.

4th - 5th Grade -  G2R (Genesis to Revelation) is what we use to help our 4th and 5th graders put into context the stories and truth of God’s BIG picture.  Our aim is that they become grounded in the gospel story from beginning to end.  They will have lots of “big kid” fun as they participate in activities, games, and art in response to what they are learning.
