Your child has a vital part to play

in the story of God.

What is Family Ministry?

Every Sunday, babies through fifth grade kids experience great music, fun storytelling, safe environments, and most importantly community. Each week our Waymakers pour into the next generation by making a way for families to discover their relationship with God, themselves, and others.

We value your child, but we also recognize that as the parent you have the greatest influence. Our philosophy is to give you as much tools as possible to further your influence. We partner with your family!

Your First Visit

When you pull into our parking lot, you will find several first-time guests parking spaces located closest to our main entrance.

One of the first things you’ll do is check in your child at Parent Relations. We’ll ask you to help us fill out some information to get to know you and your child better. We want to make sure we have the name your child likes to be called, if they have any allergies, and your contact information.

You and your child will each receive a sticker, one for your child to wear and one for you to pick up your child with. We ask you put this in a safe place while you’re in our worship gathering.

A few things to know:

What should my kid wear?

We want every kid to feel comfortable. We have a lot of fun playing games and dancing to music as they learn more about themselves, others, and God.

Is there snack?

In our Whimsy, Rhythm, and Storyland environments we provide a snack. Our hallways are peanut and tree nut free. If your child has allergies, please let Parent Relations know.

What is Parent Cue?

The method that we partner with parents is through Parent Cue. We give you cues that you can use as you guide your family through faith. We send out weekly e-mails, resources, and a monthly cue that goes over what your child is learning on the weekend.

What are God Time Cards?

God Time Cards are sent home with your K-5th grade child every week. They allow your child to interact with our bottom line in a different way. If your child fills theirs out, they can bring it on Sunday to earn a prize.

Our Environments

Whimsy & Rhythm

Leaving your new baby or toddler anywhere for the first time can be overwhelming.  We want to give your child loving care in a secure and healthy environment with age appropriate activities to keep them engaged while they are with us.  The Rhythm & Whimsy Waymakers have been chosen for the 0-2 year old age group because of their love of children and their training to care for all of the needs of this age group.

Storyland

Things are starting to get busy at this stage of life. Storyland includes jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Preschoolers participate in many age-appropriate, creative activities throughout the morning. We look forward to helping your child learn more about a relationship God. To ensure your child receives the best care, we adhere to a one volunteer for every seven children ratio.

Ink

Ink is a Sunday-morning environment for elementary-aged kids. It includes an engaging large group gathering for worship and story-telling, alongside a more personal small group time with adult leaders who are thoroughly background checked. In Ink, we believe that church doesn’t have to be boring, the music can be loud and fun and good leaders always care.

What We Value

Parents

There’s a reason we call it Family Ministry. We’ve done the research and we know that parents have the greatest influence in their child’s life. That’s why we partner with parents by giving tools, resources, and planning awesome events that connect two forces together: parents and the church.

Relationships

Every child needs another adult mentor in their life. Our small group leaders love the kids that walk into their room each week. Small group leaders lead a few kids every week through fun crafts, games, and discussion that all point back to knowing themselves, God, and others.

Safety

We think about safety procedures before your child attends on Sunday. All of our Waymakers are interviewed and background checked. We sanitize toys every week with non-toxic ingredients. We have specific safety policies in place to ensure your child’s protection and privacy.

Fun

At Vinings we love to have fun! We create new and exciting ways for your child to discover God, themselves, and others. When kids are having a great time making friends, dancing, singing, playing games, and being encouraged by small group leaders they can’t wait to come back!
