CityKids is our ministry here at Beachcities for kids infants through 5th grade. We believe that, while a parent is the most influential spiritual leader in a child’s life, our purpose is to inspire wonder in a child as they discover who God really is and how they can have a relationship with him. Our goal is to provide a solid spiritual foundation through fun and engaging programs that help both kids and their parents find Christ and grow.
We offer the CityKids program on Saturday nights at 5:30pm and
Sunday mornings at 9:30am and 11:00am.
0-2 years old (Room 101)
The youngest members of our church family will be lovingly cared for in our nursery. Our volunteers are ready to give your baby their full attention, while also beginning to introduce them to an early understanding of God through purposeful playtime.
2 year olds (Room 207)
Our 2 year olds take part in our First Look curriculum, which emphasizes that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. While most of their time with us consists of purposeful play designed to highlight those ideas; they also take part in a short Bible lesson.
3 – 5 year olds (Room 206)
Our 3-5 year olds are full of energy and ready to learn! Children in this classroom will participate in fun activities designed to point them toward the ideas that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
Kindergarten – 1st Grade (Room 203)
As children enter kindergarten, they’re introduced to our 252Basics curriculum—based on the principles found in Luke 2:52. Kids in this program will enjoy lessons based on three main principles: I can trust God no matter what, I need to make the wise choice, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated. Through small group activities, a Big Group lesson time, and monthly scripture memorization, kids in this age group begin to discover what it means to really follow in Jesus’ footsteps.
2nd – 3rd Grade (Room 202)
Kids in these grades will have a blast learning our 252Basics principles through small group activities, Big Group lesson time, and scripture memorization. They’ll also bring home a “God Time” card to help them put into practice what they learned at church when they get home.
4th – 5th Grade
Our oldest group of kids is challenged each week to take the things they’ve discovered about following Jesus and to put them into practice on their own. Our goal is to help kids in this classroom prepare for the challenges of middle school and high school by helping them apply the things they’re learning at church to their own lives in very practical ways.
If you’re visiting CityKids for the first time, you can come right on upstairs to CityKids Central to check your child in. You’ll be asked to fill out a small information card, including your cell phone number. That number will be used to send a text message during the service if there’s any reason we need to contact you. Once they’re checked in, you’ll escort your child to their age-level classroom, where they’ll take part in thought-provoking small group activities and an engaging Bible lesson.
KidsGames is a sports and creative arts camp for kids 4 years old through 5th grade! Your child will have the time of their lives as they learn new skills, make new friends, and learn more about God. From crazy color wars to wacky water day, KidsGames will be the best week of your child’s summer. You can find more information on KidsGames at kidsgamesoc.com.
Our next dedications will be happening November 11-12.
Baby dedication ceremonies are meant to be done during the first year of a child’s life to demonstrate to our church family and community that you intend to raise your child to know, love,and obey God; and to recognize your baby as God’s child before your own. All parents who wish to participate with their child will need to attend a brief baby dedication orientation prior to the ceremony. While we love your kiddo, this orientation is intended for parents only.
