Vineyard Kids

"There is no junior Holy Spirit!"

Lauren Caldwell

Welcome to Vineyard Kids Gilbert! We are so glad to have you! Here in Vineyard Kids we love to encounter Jesus and make Him known! We believe there is no such thing as a junior Holy Spirit. It is awesome when kids can encounter Jesus for themselves and discover all that He has for them. We hope your children can join us!

Vkids Vision

Encountering God and making Him known!
We aspire to partner with the Holy Spirit and families in raising disciples who long to grow their relationship with God and to allow kids space to experience and discover Jesus and all He has for them.

Our Values

Presence of God

We welcome the presence of God into our time in Kids Ministry, as our hope is for kids to grow in their personal relationship with God. Leaving space to listen and respond to what God might be doing in kids’ hearts and lives is important.

Partnering with God

We look to see where God is at work in our kids, our families, our church, our community and our world! We are excited to partner with the Holy Spirit in all He is doing.

Building  Unity and True Identity

We seek to build unity and friendship between each other, causing us to break down walls of false identity. We will help kids reclaim their identities as image bearers of God.

Safety

Keeping children safe and in a calm and loving environment while in our care is of upmost importance. We have policies in place designed to keep both our kids and volunteers safe.

Reaching Out

Being involved in our community in practical ways to reach those that are in need, lonely or hurting. It allows us to show Jesus’ love to them and be Jesus in our world today. We want to equip kids to bring the good news of the Kingdom to their generation and those around them.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Children's Pastor Jessica Gentes.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sunday Mornings

Check-in

Children, ages Birth – 5th grade will check in at our computers before going to their class. Your child's safety is very important to us. Whether you use our first time guest hand written tag, or check in through our computers, you, as the parent, will also have a tag to hold on to. You will present this to the teacher at pick up. Our kids check in computers are located in our main lobby next to our coffee bar. If this is your first Sunday with us, you can use our rectangle hand written check in tags. One section of this tag will stay with you, as the parent for pick up. If you are joining us more regularly, you can fill out an information card and turn it into the connect center desk in the lobby. This will allow us to put you and your child's information in our database system. Once this is done, you can use the computers to check in and print your child's tag. A name tag will print along with a second tag including all your kids’ names. This is the tag you will keep and use for pick up. You must show your tag at pick up.

Birth-Kindergarten

Our nursery is for children, birth – 24 months. We keep a calm and safe atmosphere for your babies in our nursery. You can leave diaper bags and any special instructions for our nursery volunteers to know. With at least two adults present in nursery at all times, we will ensure your little one has a fresh diaper before picked up. We have a short, one time form for you to fill out that will give us approval to change your Childs diaper if needed.

Our 2’s & 3’s class and 4’s & 5’s class is fun and engaging space for your toddlers and PreK-Kinder kiddos to learn and discover Jesus and all that He has for them! We have 2 separate classes for toddlers & PreK-Kinder, but they do come together for worship and a game! In small groups they will have snack, a craft and Bible lesson.

Elementary

We believe there is no such thing as a Jr. Holy Spirit! Our 1st – 5th grade room is full of games, small group discussion and discovery and large group teachings! We think it is important to make space for the Holy Spirit and follow where He is moving. We encourage our Vineyard Kids to become aware of His presence and press into what the Spirit is doing.
