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.
PARENT CUE APP
The Parent Cue App helps every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.
TALKING TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT FOLLOWING JESUS
Parents have a deep desire to pass on their faith, but often times don't know what the best way to do it is. Here's a simple way to discuss faith with your children in order to facilitate impactful conversations that will form the basis of a lifelong faith.
HAS YOUR CHILD ASKED ABOUT BAPTISM?
If you are a parent of a child interested in baptism, check out the Baptism Interest Packet. To learn more about baptism at Beachcities, head to the Baptism page.
DISCOVER THE PART YOU CAN PLAY IN GOD'S BIG STORY
We all play a part!
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 two-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 three to five-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.
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.
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.
KidsGames is a sports and creative arts camp for kids ages four-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.
What's a Child Dedication?
At Beachcities, our baby dedication ceremonies are meant to be done during the first year of your child's life to demonstrate to your church family and community that you intend to raise your child to know, love, and obey God. And to recognize them as God's child before your own.
