Find Parent Prep Resources Here.

Wednesday (Grade K - 5)
6:30 - 8:00 pm

On Summer Break! Mark your calendars for Fall Kick-Off on Wednesday, September 11!

(Birth - Grade 5) 

July 7: We begin a new unit called Paul's Mission to Rome and the Church's Hope with the lesson "Paul Returned to Jerusalem" (Acts 21-22). Kids will learn that Paul followed God’s plan and returned to Jerusalem even though he faced danger in the city. Paul believed that God, who was faithful to raise Jesus from the dead, would help him in his troubles. We can follow God’s plan to tell others about Jesus and trust God to take care of us.

July 14: We continue in the unit Paul's Mission to Rome and the Church's Hope with the lesson "Paul Went to Rome and Preached" (Acts 27-28). Kids will learn that Paul trusted God to keep his promise to rescue him from the storm. He encouraged the sailors to trust and obey God, too. God calls us to trust in his Son, Jesus, who died to rescue us from sin and death, and to invite others to believe this good news as well.

Parent Prep

In Berean Kids, our desire is for parents to be the primary spiritual influence in their children’s lives. We want to come alongside and help you by providing resources for you to use with your family! Sunday includes information on how to have a worship experience at home! Find resources HERE for both Wednesday and Sunday.

Remember to check the Parent Central Wall when you enter the Berean Kids area. Here, you will find take-home sheets to continue the learning at home, as well as other news to note! 

Berean Kids News

*Family Summer Meetups: Stay connected this summer at our park meetups! These meetups are:designed to help BK families build community, informal, casual, fun for the whole family (not drop-off events), and great for kids of all ages! Download the handout HERE.

*Sundays, August 4 - September 1: Sunday programming for birth - grade 12 will pause this August through September 1. This August pause will honor our amazing volunteers who serve week after week by giving them a season of rest while allowing Berean Kids and Youth staff to prepare well for the coming ministry year. During this August break, we encourage your family to attend Sunday services together. For those with younger kids or who need a more relaxed setting, there will be a family worship service viewing area in room 114 during the 9 and 11 am services. This viewing area will have a livestream of the service, tables with coloring sheets and activity bags for kids, and an area for younger children and crawlers in the back.

*Now Hiring a BK Director: We are hiring a director for Berean Kids! If you know someone who would be a great fit, pass on THIS info! Please be praying for this position, that God would lead the right person to fill this important role at Berean.

*Sundays Away: Never miss a Sunday this summer with Church At HomeThe Gospel Project (whose resources we use for our lessons) has made available a family worship experience using some of the same content we use on Sundays. If you are away on a Sunday, your kids don't have to miss the lesson. Visit our Parent Prep page for more information!
