Vale Kids is designed solely to help children know, love and follow Christ with all their hearts in a safe, high-energy, enriching environment for children Preschool through 6th grades.

Vale Kids partners with parents to:

  • Develop children as Christ-followers and teach them to share their faith
  • Develop children as worshipers
  • Develop children as prayer warriors
  • Teach children to make wise choices according to Scripture
  • Support families with fun, creative ways to enhance each child’s spiritual journey

First Sunday?

Look for a volunteer at The Vale Kids Welcome desk in the Children’s Ministry Building to get you started and escort you and your child to their starting point. The check–in process is quick and easy and will help us keep your child safe and happy while you are attending an adult study or worship service.

Preschool

The Vale desires to partner with families to teach their children about the love of Christ! Our prayer is that God would bring each child to the knowledge of salvation and that they begin their relationship with Jesus!  If you would like more information about Preschool, or have a desire to serve in this area, please contact Edwina Sullivan, Preschool & Kingdom Kids Director.

Kingdom Kids Preschool (Tues/Wed/Thurs)
Kingdom Kids Preschool and Kindergarten is a weekday ministry of The Vale. Our objective is to provide a safe, Christian environment in which your child can develop spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. Visit the Kingdom Kids Page Here.

Security

Upon checking in your child, you will receive a matching tag to use to pick your child up after service. Any special instructions needed to keep your child safe and happy will be noted as well. The Vale Kids Ministry employs a policeman who remains in The Vale Kids reception area for all services. The children love to greet him each morning!

Upcoming Events

Galactic Starveyors VBS (This Summer)

Focus your telescopes! Galactic Starveyors, the 2017 VBS from Lifeway, reignites children's sense of discovery and exploration as they marvel at the wonders of the starry sky. Most of all, they gaze toward the God who created the universe and everything in it learning that He wants to have a personal relationship with them! Come on into the clubhouse and show kids that God is over the moon in love with them! This will be for our 3 yr. olds - 7th graders! Our 5th - 7th graders will have an out of this world experience at VBX, a special VBS odyssey for our older VBX'ers!

Theme Verse: He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven, and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things have been created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:15-16)

Motto: Searching the Visible, Discovering the Invisible Ages

 

Kids Beach Clubs 

Kids Beach Club is a high energy, fun-filled “kid centered” club that meets after school one hour one day a week for 24 weeks. Beach Club incorporates the truth of scripture every time it meets. This allows the character words taught in all elementary schools to be reinforced through the teaching of scripture.

Children can join by getting a permission slip from the school office and returning it to the office.

Kids Beach Club at Austin Elementary - Meets Wednesdays after school until 4:25

Kids Beach Club at Sunnyvale Elementary - Meets Tuesdays after school until 5:00

For more information about Beach Club visit www.kidsbeachclub.org

 

Awana Clubs

Awana is a club whose goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. At each club meeting, children will review sections learned at home from their Awana book with their club leader, recite memorized Scripture for points, participate in the bible lesson and games. (See Calendar below)

At the end of that learning period, parents will contact the children’s staff to schedule a meeting with the family and schedule baptism.
