CentriKid is an overnight camp for 3rd–5th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ! CentriKid is committed to providing a place for kids to get away—even for a little while—to hear loud and clear that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. Safety in our programming, within relationships, and on campus are top priorities. We believe powerful things can happen when kids feel safe to be a kid!
Pack your bags and grab your gear, VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where an epic adventure of discovery awaits. Discover long-hidden treasures, amazing finds, and exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. They really happened.

At Destination Dig, kids will unearth more than just dirt. They’ll discover real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus. Stories from the Bible will leap off the pages as kids explore where Jesus walked and examine artifacts that bring the world of the Bible to life.

As junior archaeologists, kids will study tangible pieces of the past to learn the truth about who Jesus is and why He came. Along the way they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13 that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.

June 21 - 25 @Downtown Campus
Monday - Thursday 9 am - 12 pm
Friday 9 am - 1 pm

Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”

First Kidz Children’s Ministry exists to provide a safe, secure, and fun learning environment for children in Kindergarten - 5th grades. All volunteers have completed a National security screening and have been trained to work with and teach children. We pride ourselves on a standard of 1:5 volunteer to child ratio. We focus on helping children understand the basics of the Bible and how God’s Word helps us to learn how to live and interact with others. We believe that God’s Word is living and speaks to each of us through the Holy Spirit. Our desire is to guide children towards a personal understanding of who Jesus is, what He has done for us and to present multiple opportunities for each child to choose to follow Jesus through a personal decision. All of our volunteers feel called to educate children and are excited to serve each week.

Sundays

On Sunday morning we offer small group learning environments based on school grade. Children come to our KidzZone and we have a large group time with announcements then dismiss to our small groups. Each class has two volunteers/leaders and we limit the class size to 12 students. During this hour we focus on age appropriate teaching using all five senses to help the children learn age appropriate Bible Truths with life application.

Sundays

11:00 am – Noon — Kidz Church

Our Kidz Church hour is designed for children in grades Kindergarten - 3rd grades. Our Pre-Teens (4th &5th graders) can choose to go to Big Church with their Parents/Guardians or they can choose to be part of our Club 45 Service Teams who alternate weeks and serve during the Kidz Church hour. Our Kidz Church is designed to help children understand Biblical History, Memorize the Books of the Bible and link specific stories, events and leaders too specific books of the Bible. We do this through music, skits, videos, and games. Kidz Church is a lot of fun for all ages.

Wednesdays

6:00 – 7:15 pm — Kidz D-Night

Our Kidz (D)iscipleship Night program is designed for Kindergarten - 5th grades. We know how hard it is in the middle of the week so we want our Wednesday D-nights to be fun and educational that is why we use a rotation approach to our programing. Each Wednesday we divide the kids into teams and have them rotate between stations: Bible Story Time, Missionary Moments, Recreation and Snacks. This allows the kids to learn something new, see how real missionaries are using a similar story or skill in the field then have some run and play time.
