Jesus loves children, and often compares a relationship with God to be like a child’s relationship to a good father: trusting, loving, and safe. In fact Jesus affirms the value of a child in a culture where children were not so valued. Because Jesus has a heart for kids, Kid’s Rock makes it a mission to teach our kids their value in Christ, and to teach them the amazing love of the Father as Jesus did.
Kid’s Rock also has a heart to see not only kids, but their families and their family’s friends begin a new and deeper relationship with Jesus. Our desire is that we see more and more children welcomed home in to the arms of their loving Heavenly Father, and that whole families get to know the incredibly good news of the Gospel.
What does Kid’s Rock look like
Kid’s Rock gathers in the Library at Howe Sound Secondary School on Sunday Mornings while the adults gather to listen to God’s word in the Eagle Eye Theatre. Each Kid’s Rock gathering is filled with stories of who God is and what He has done, words that God has spoken, and promises of God that we get to keep through games, story times, activities, play, song and arts.
The Rock Church Sunday gatherings begin at 9.30am for coffee and we being worship at 10am. Kid’s are dismissed to enjoy their Kid’s Rock gathering after our singing around 10.30 am and adults may collect their children from Kid’s Rock before communion around 11.15 am.
What we teach
God is our Heavenly Father, He is someone that we can trust with our whole lives. Better still, our Heavenly Father has given us many promises that we can trust and hold him to as one might do with our own fathers. Because of this, we chose the curriculum “Faithful to all His Promises”, by Children Desiring God. Knowing that in today’s society where children, as well as adults, can become disappointed with broken promises from those we respect and care for, this curriculum shows us that there is one person, God, who will never let us down.
Who leads Kid’s Rock
Because we value and love children so much, it’s important to us that those who lead a Kid’s Rock gathering know and love Jesus, are a member of The Rock Church, and have all the necessary criminal background checks as well as Kid’s Rock training.
How you can get involved
If you have never been involved with a children’s ministry, no worries! Parents are always welcome to bring their children to a Kid’s Rock gathering. We encourage that you can be a part of this ministry by sitting in with your child for at least one Sunday gathering that you might know what we do with the kids and that you might know how to compliment what we do on Sundays with the rest of the week.
