Kid Village

Kid Village is a safe place for infants through grade 3 at The Village Christian Church

What Is Kid Village?

Kid Village is a safe, fun-filled place for infants – 3rd graders. Our bigger kids sing songs, dance, play games and learn about our amazing God! It’s open during both the 9:00 and 10:30 AM services at the Minooka and Coal City Campuses and the 9:30 AM service at the Seneca Campus.

Our leaders teach lessons designed around the Bible, lessons that are broken down into different age groups so each group can learn at their level. Music is also a huge part of who we are! We want the kids to get excited about Jesus!

Our goal here is to make your kids feel special, have fun, and develop friendships, all while getting to know Jesus!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

What to Expect

Classrooms open 10-minutes before each service. The exception is on Family Worship days.

If you’re new, your first stop will be our Kid Village check-in counter to pick up your kid’s name labels. You can pre-register so check-in is quick and easy. Just download the KidCheck app for IOS or Android and set up your account. The first time you will need to go to the Kid Village check-in counter. After that, you can start the check-in process on your way to church and when you get to church, just hit submit and pick up your labels at the small round table by Kid Village. Note: You do need to be in the building with wi-fi to complete check-in.

Teachers regularly serve so there are familiar faces each week. All teachers have background checks and bios on file at the check-in counter for you to review anytime. Security personnel are at the entrance of Kid Village to make sure everyone is SAFE & SECURE.

Kid Village is a safe, fun-filled place for infants - grade 3 at The Village Christian Church

Elementary (Kindergarten-Grade 3)

These kids will experience Jesus through music and Bible stories together as a large group. They sing, dance, and then break into small groups based on grade, where they’ll dive deeper into lessons. Amazing leaders guide age-appropriate activities, providing opportunities to form relationships, have fun and learn about Jesus.

Students in grades 4 and 5 can go to Pulse 45 and students in grades 6, 7 and 8 can go to Pulse Jr, our student ministry groups, during the 9:00 and 10:30 AM services at the Minooka and Coal City Campuses and the 9:30 AM at the Seneca Campus. You can find more info on our Student page.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Kid Village At Home

If you’re not able to be at the church, your kids can still learn about Jesus in the comfort of your own home!
