We want to SHOW Jesus to kids and families so they GROW to be like him and GO to tell others about him.
What We Value
- CHRIST-CENTERED TEACHING: The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. Our Gospel Project for Kids curriculum is the centerpiece of our strategy for Christ-centered teaching.
- RELATIONSHIPS OF GRACE: We value children’s relationships within their classes, with their leaders and with one another.
SAFETY: The safety of children is one of our highest priorities as a church, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We interview our volunteers and perform background checks on every individual who is involved in the children’s ministry.
FUN: Learning to know, love, and live for Jesus should be fun! We value this reality, and we work hard to create fun age-appropriate ways for all Origins kiddos to learn about Jesus through interactive teaching, games, activities, crafts, and musical worship and singing.
Up Kids includes 3 environments for Kids from birth to 4th grade. We have separate environments for Kids from Birth to 2 years old, 3 and 4 years old, and K through 4th grade.
Our teachers and volunteers plan crafts, music, drama, puppets, and more each week that are tailor made for each age group. Oh, and plenty of goldfish crackers.
Rush is our environment for 5th through 8th grade. Rush takes place during our 10:15 am gathering. It is designed to meet the specific needs of kids navigating the awkward years of adolescence. You know, like when they start to smell bad and stuff. We know your kids in this age group may not say more than 3 words to you per month, so we intentionally provide opportunities for them to talk about life in a safe place. Rush also has a live band and a message made specifically for these kids.
Move Students happens every Sunday afternoon (West Chester only) from 4:30 to 6:30 for 9th through 12th grade. Our Students now have a place to develop relationships with each other, and with our incredible Leadership Team, all while experiencing Jesus in captivating ways. Oh… and we feed them, too (just saying). There’s no better way to kick-start a new week. This is a “Can’t Miss”! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions… OR… if anyone needs transportation. That’s right… we’ll come get you!
