Welcome to TJN Kids

We absolutely love kids at TJN and we can't wait for them to know and learn
about the God who created them, loves them, and is with them each and everyday.
Everything that is experienced in TJN Kids is designed to do just that.

Are you ready to be back?
Kids classes are open
during all weekend services!

Lil' Trekkers | Birth-Preschool

Lil' Trekkers is a place where kids get to play, hear a Bible story, learn bible verses, sing, make friends, and be encouraged by their leaders to make wise decisions.
We love to partner with parents to introduce kids to what it means to follow Jesus.

Kidventure | Grades K-5

In Kidventure, kids have a place where they can make the decision to follow Jesus and grow in their faith.
They'll have a fun time learning about God with music, games, memory verses and teaching that is designed just for them.

 Classes Are Open!

When you get to TJN, look for the Kids Check-In area.

A staff or volunteer will be there to answer any questions you have,

help you get checked in, and find the right room for your child.

Plan to arrive early so you can drop off your kids and head into the service without missing anything!

We can’t wait to serve you and your family!

Church at Home

Staying at home this weekend? Here’s everything you need to have a TJN Kids experience wherever you are. 

Just watch the video with your kids and take a look at our family activities.

God wants all of us to make wise choices, but that’s not always easy. That’s why he helps us along the way! In this series, we’ll see how following God’s Son Jesus can help us make wise choices.

JAN. 16/17 | JESUS USED WISE WORDS

Look It Up: John 1:35-51

Did you know your words are super powerful? They can make people feel hurt or make them feel great. Jesus used wise words to help and encourage others, and we can, too.

Big Idea: Jesus used wise words.

Ask: What is something kind or encouraging we can tell someone today?

Memory Verse:  John 13:34  |  “Love one another. You must love one another, just as I have loved you.”

We say that we follow Jesus with our whole lives, but what does that actually mean? In this series, we are asking the question “What did Jesus do?” We’ll see what Jesus’ daily life looked like and discover how each of us can live like he did.

JAN. 16/17| JESUS HONORED OTHERS

Have you seen a bulldozer recently?  A bulldozer does two things: build and destroy. It’s up to the driver what the powerful tool does. The same thing is true of our words. This week, we’ll see how Jesus’ words changed lives, and learn how ours can, too.

Big Idea: I can use my words to build others up.

After Video Questions:
What could happen if Gabby and Jesse are mean back to Samantha? What other choices do they have?

What’s something someone has done for you that made you feel honored, like you were very important?

The Point: When we start looking for ways to honor others, we’ll start to see so much that is good in other people. We might start to understand better why God loves every person in the world! When our words and actions honor others, we’ll also make a difference in their lives. Every one of us can honor others!

At Home Challenge: Look up and Read Romans 12:10. Try making a list of people your words affect. It could be your family, people at school, or people on a team or group you’re in. Then, write two ways you could use your words to build up some of those people this week.

Memory Verse:  John 13:34  |  I give you a new command. Love one another. You must love one another just as I have loved you.

Additional Information

We are doing everything we can to maintain a clean and safe environment for our kids and volunteers.  Here’s what you can expect:

  • Classrooms will be cleaned before and after services
  • Kids will need to wash their hands prior to entering classes
  • Masks are required for everyone over the age of 6
  • Children will receive their own supplies necessary to participate in activities
  • Different sanitized toys will be used for each service
  • Kids will use hand sanitizer as needed throughout the service
  • Snacks will be individually wrapped
  • Volunteers will use gloves during snack and whenever necessary
  • Limited room capacity so we can do our best to spread out
  • You’ll need to register your kids online for the service you want them to attend
  • Your tags will be printed ahead of time and will be waiting for you

All Kids volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before they start volunteering—so know that your kids are in safe hands.

Every weekend at Kids Check-In, your family is assigned a random code that is on your child’s name tag and your security tag. You will use your security tag during pick up so we can determine each child goes home with who brought them.

 

Well-Child Policy

If your child feels sick at home, they’ll feel sick at church.  We want all of our kids and volunteers to remain healthy and happy, so we ask that kids be kept at home if they’re not feeling well.  We’ll be very excited to see them the following week!

In addition if your child has had any of the following symptoms within the last 24 it would be best if they stayed home and rested up to be ready to come back when they feel better.

  • Fever (100 or higher)
  • Flu symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, chills
  • Excessive signs of a cold: coughing, sneezing, sore throat, runny nose (except for clear)
  • Rash
  • Discharge from eyes or ears
  • Communicable skin infections (impetigo, boils, ringworm)
  • Childhood diseases such as: chicken pox, mumps, measles, rubella, pertussis, or scarlet fever
  • Lice
