ORCHARD KIDS

Welcome to Orchard Kids!

We are glad you are here and invite you to come and enjoy all of our opportunities for children birth through 5th grade and their families. We are excited to partner with parents and grandparents as you raise your children to know, love and serve Jesus. We seek to provide safe and intentional experiences where children will have fun, make friends and grow in faith!

 

 


YOUR FIRST VISIT

Visiting us for the first time?

 

Please register your child - click here!

 

When your family arrives for the 10:30 am worship service, follow the steps up from the parking lot (or up the ramp with your stroller) to the Worship Center and main patio.

 

Stop at the Welcome Center counter and get a name tag for your child.

 

After the opening worship songs, announcements and children’s message, children preschool through 5th grade will be dismissed and escorted down the steps to the Children’s Center. Be sure to send your child wearing the name tag.

 

Children are always welcome to stay with you in the worship service.

 

Children birth through 3 years may be dropped off to the nursery in the Children’s Center before worship. After the service, please pick up your children in the Children’s Center. You may want to stay in the playground area and let your child play while you get to know other parents, or you may want to take your kids back up to the main patio and enjoy a snack and fellowship!

 

 

Our friendly Children's Minsitry Team will help you check your child and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you!

OUR MISSION

Throughout our Children’s Center and time together you will likely see and hear the words “Gather, Grow and Go.”

 

Gather: We believe God intends for us to worship, play, learn, pray and serve in community with one another, so our Orchard Kids ministry team is intentional about providing opportunities to foster friendship among our children and families. We hope your family will get connected and find a home at Orchard to put down roots.

 

Grow: Whether you are new to Orchard or have been here for years, Orchard Kids wants to see your child grow and thrive. Our lessons help children dig into the Bible, acquaint children with the characters found in scripture and engage children in discussions and experiences which lead to knowing and following Jesus. At Orchard Kids your child will get to practice the spiritual disciplines of worship, Bible study, prayer, fellowship and service to others.

 

Go: We hope that the lessons learned at Orchard Kids will lead to respond to what they have learned by taking their faith, love and hope home with them, ready to serve and lead and help others.

Is your child ready for their own awesome summer adventure? Would they enjoy a week in the mountains to encounter Jesus in a new way? Are the kids in your church ready to develop their faith in a dynamic yet safe place?

 

Summer Camp at Wild Rock is a five-day camp specifically designed for students entering 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This is a safe place where kids will learn about their great God through age-appropriate teaching, engaging worship, and time outdoors in His Creation. It's an opportunity to meet new friends and learn about how we are designed for Christ-centered community while staying away from home for the very first time.

 

A hallmark of summer camp at Wild Rock is the outrageously fun games and activities. Campers will face challenges through a variety of recreation options and skills classes. Swimming, archery, the Slingshot Swing, the Squirrel Run (our Low Ropes Course), Climbing Trees, and hiking are just a few of the options available. Our staff members are experts in coming alongside their campers to nurture their spiritual growth and foster a new sense of independence.
