Children & Youth
Wednesday Nights–Big Gig / Awana
Families enjoy food and fellowship at 5:45 p.m. Wednesdays. Big Gig, an acronym for Believe In God – Grow in God, is our kids night at Kingwood Christian Church for children kindergarten through fifth grade. The event combines food, Biblical lessons and social activities like crafts, music, games and stories. The AWANA curriculum engages our kids while they learn more about Scripture. Volunteers are crucial to the success of all of our programming. Please contact us if you want to invest in our children!
Year-Round Special Events
Easter Egg Hunt and Trunk or Treat
These two special events in spring and fall connect the church community in an all-out celebration with our kids. For many, these are arguably the highlights of the year, when the miniature train horn comes a tootin’ and everyone gets into the festivities. In the middle of the fun there is always a lesson learned (usually through a puppet show) that ties the real purpose of our gathering to the Author and Finisher of our faith – thank you God!!!
This week-long summer highlight for young children is driven to success by our amazing volunteers, including our youth. Each year focuses on a specific theme, combining a celebration of God’s goodness with fun summertime crafts, music, and activities.
Young Sunday, Performances and Christmas Pageant
Every year we try to have our kids run a Sunday service. This may be a portion of the worship or a shared responsibility with the youth. These events help our kids relate to our church family in a corporate way and meet the adults where they are. Young Sunday facilitates this, with youth focusing on a theme and sharing that theme with the entire church.
Every other month we also integrate a performance into the Blessing of the Children portion of the service. It is a simple reminder to everyone that what they do matters to God and us.
A Christmas Pageant takes place in early December and is always an entertaining and special time.
CLT (Children’s Leadership Team)
How does all of this happen? Who directs the traffic? How do I get involved?
Once every two months or so, we meet to brainstorm and evaluate how our children and youth activities are progressing. This is the CLT meeting. It really is open to any parent or volunteer who is in interested in bringing their ideas to the table. You want to see a Hip Hop Christmas musical? Come to the CLT meeting and don’t forget your bling.
