Our Concord Kids are our future, so we make sure they are fully engaged and secured in fun, age-appropriate Bible experiences during Kids Church and special events.
The Concord Kids Ministry includes ages 6 weeks - 5th Grade. We believe that kids matter to God. All leaders working in our kid’s ministry know that God loves each and every child, so they matter to us!
We also believe that children should have fun, so we use creativity, innovation, and adventure in reaching them and holding their attention. We believe that children are more receptive to the lessons when they are presented in a creative way.
We believe that spiritual growth happens best in an atmosphere of emotional and physical safety, so we employ a strict check-in / check-out system to ensure your child is secure. You will receive a receipt when you drop off your child. Please remember to hold onto your check-in tag or take a picture of it with your phone to send to a designee. The individual who is picking up your child must be a person who is at least 18 years of age, even if they have the matching check-in tag.

The Bible makes it clear how God crafts each one of us uniquely and for His purposes. At Concord, we seek to celebrate the awesome gift of children by way of a Baby Dedication Ceremony. We walk parents through a parenting class to both confirm God’s plan for raising Godly children and Godly parents. We are honored to serve you in this season and in the journey ahead.
