Welcome to ARANA KIDS!
Our purpose as a ministry is to be able to impact and invest in the lives of the younger generation, helping them to know God, find freedom, discover their purpose and to make a difference in their worlds. Our hope is that we create an environment where children have fun, feel safe and are free to ask questions about life, faith and discover what God means to them. We do this by building relationships between leaders and students and using programs as a tool to help us communicate how much God loves them. We have programs for children from the age of 1 through to Grade 9. We hope that your children will be able to learn about God and have lots of fun in a safe and loving environment.
Please check in your children for the 9am service prior to the service. Check-in happens at the sign in desk as you walk through the main doors. If it is your first time we recommend you coming a little earlier as we will require some personal information to help keep your children safe. When the children are invited to leave the service for Arana Kids, please deliver them to the downstairs hall. From here all the children will split off into our five age specific groups. Below are our five groups.
Kids Club runs every Friday afternoon during the school term. What does a regular week at Kids Club look like? Kids arrive at 3:15pm onwards for afternoon tea on the deck followed by some super fun games inside. We then spend time on a small take away message that the children can take into their afternoon and share with their families. These topics are centered around developing their understanding of who God is and how much He cares for them. Parents are also welcome to stay for the afternoon and chat together over some tea and coffee.
