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 will re-open
December 5/6
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.

When Kids Classes Re-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

 You have 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 activity.

Hey, families! For thousands of years, God's people were waiting.
They waited for a leader, for someone who could show them what God was really like.
When that leader showed up, though, it was in a way no one expected.
Come along as we tell the story of the whole Bible, on our epic quest for a king!

NOV. 28/29 | HOPING FOR A KING

David was a powerful, good, and wise king, but even he was watching and waiting for an even more amazing leader to come. Who was he waiting for?

Big Idea: I can believe God’s directions are good.

Look It Up: 2 Samuel 7

Discuss: Think about times you follow directions, whether from a GPS, a teacher, or a recipe. Why is it important to follow directions? Why is it important to follow God’s directions?

Memory Verse:  Isaiah 9:2  |  The people who are now living in darkness will see a great light. They are now living in a very dark land.  But a light will shine on them.

Join us on an incredible quest!
We'll explore far-off lands, stories from long ago, and take on exciting challenges as we search for the greatest king of all.
Our quest will start at the beginning of our world and bring us all the way up to today.

NOV. 28/29 | THE PLAN

Look It Up: 2 Samuel 7
This week we saw how someone named David learned about God’s plan and how we can be a part of it too.

Big Idea: I can follow God’s plan.

Ask: What’s a time you have to follow instructions or rules? (at school, home, or when playing games)
What wise choice did David make in our Bible Adventure? (He followed God’s plan.)

At Home: We just celebrated Thanksgiving; so try giving thanks for something everyday this week!

Memory Verse:  Isaiah 9:2  |  The people who are now living in darkness will see a great light.

NOV. 21/22 | WAITING FOR A PROMISE

God made Abraham a huge promise, so huge that it affected everyone in the world.  God’s promise was so huge, that it is still changing our lives today!

Big Idea: I can believe God’s promises.

Look It Up: Genesis 12:1-8

Look Up and ask these questions for each bible verse:
When might it help us to remember this promise?
What might it look like when God keeps this promise?

2 Timothy 1:7
Deuteronomy 31:6
Romans 8:39
Philippians 4:7

Memory Verse:  Isaiah 9:2  |  The people who are now living in darkness will see a great light. They are now living in a very dark land.  But a light will shine on them.

NOV. 21/22 | FAR FROM HOME

Look It Up: Genesis 12:1-8
Abraham chose to follow God, whether he was at home or a long way away. We can make that choice, too!

Big Idea: I can always trust God.

Ask: Who trusted God in our Bible Adventure earlier? (Abraham)
What do you think “trust” means? (Believing someone, relying on them.)

At Home: Find a story about trust, or an example of trust, read it and talk about it as a family.

Memory Verse:  Isaiah 9:2  |  The people who are now living in darkness will see a great light.

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
