Our Children’s Ministry is passionate about declaring the greatness of God to the next generation.
In an effort to keep our children in an appropriate environment where they will experience the best spiritual growth possible, all of our Children’s Ministries are based on the age of the child. We follow the September 1st public school system date used for children who are entering school each year. Therefore, our Children’s Ministry is for children who will be 4 Yrs. of age by September 1st each year.
Promotion takes place once a year at Kiokee. On the first Sunday in August of each year, we promote children to new Sunday School Classes, Children’s Worship and Discipleship Classes. We do not promote children to new weekly ministry classes during the summer. So a child who just finished Second Grade would remain in the Second Grade Sunday School until the first Sunday in August. They would then move up to the Third Grade Sunday School.
There is one exception to our Promotion Policy and that is for children who attend VBS or The Retreat during the summer. During these two ministry events, we do allow children to be in their rising grade level. So a child who just finished First Grade would be in the rising Second Grade Class for VBS. And a child who just finished Fourth Grade would be eligible to attend The Retreat which is for rising 5th & 6th grades.
