iKids is our ministry to children in kindergarten through fifth grade. When it comes to influencing young lives for Christ, we use an approach found in Deuteronomy 6...
"These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:6-9
Pretty much, it's like this... A church has 40 opportunities in a year to impart truth to a child, but parents have 3,000! At Capstone, we desire to come along side parents and help them teach their children truths from God's Word so that each child grows in his or her experience with God. Using a curriculum that gives parents tools to engage their children during those times listed in Deuteronomy 6 (meal time, drive time, bed time and morning time), we give children the opportunity to grow in their faith, while also giving parents the resources they need to reinforce truth at home.
Elementary children should check-in and receive tags for their environments, then join their parents for the singing part of worship in the auditorium. Kids will be dismissed prior to the sermon to iKIDS, where they learn the same thing mom and dad do. Parents may collect kids in their designated zones at the end of worship.
