Knox Kids

Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

Luke 18:16

Knox Kids has moved online!

We are all learning how to live in a different kind of world and the church is responding by getting creative with how we do church together. In order to help protect our vulnerable neighbors, we are closing the nursery on Sunday, March 15, and canceling Sunday school programs until it is safe for us to gather together again.

Join us to Knox Kids online Sunday mornings! Pre-K to 1st grade meets from 10:10 am to 10:30 am. 2nd grade to 5th grade meets from 10:40 to 11:00 am in the same Zoom room. 

Contact Pastor Ally at knoxkids@knoxpasadena.org to sign up for the Knox Kids weekly email with the Zoom details for Sunday School,  resources for Sunday School, and ideas for families growing in faith together.

 

All ages and stages are invited to join us in our services.

Our community embraces and celebrates the joy (and the noises) of children in worship. We encourage you to sit close so that your kids have a good view of everything happening up front. After the opening songs, we invite all of the kids forward to the front steps for a children’s sermon. Following the children’s sermon, our youngest congregants will be dismissed to Sunday School classes (Pre-K to 5th grade).

Sunday School is a time to wonder about God, the world, and one another.

During the school year, kids are divided into smaller classes and we wonder about God, the world, and one another using a blend of Godly Play curriculum with Spark! by Augsburg Fortress that explores Old and New Testament stories on a two-year rotation.

Our nursery is open from the beginning of the service for kids up to 3 years old.

We have two nursery rooms–one for babies in arms and crawlers and another for toddlers. Our nursery is staffed with experienced childcare staff and volunteers. We want kids to experience church as a safe and fun place where they learn that they are loved by God and by our community. We know that kids go through stages of feeling comfortable being away from parents or guardians, so please come and stay with your kids as long as you need when you drop them off. We ask that you sign your child(ren) in and out of the nursery and on your first visit fill out a registration form at the door.

Connecting with other families is an important part of your whole family’s faith development.

Throughout the year, we plan a few activities for the whole family to enjoy such as film nights on our lawn, outdoor concerts, and our annual BBQ and Bluegrass evening, so that you can get to know other families in our church. Check out the Adult Ministries page for more information about the Young Families Connection Group and about our covenant groups, which are intentionally intergenerational, so that families can connect with people in different life stages who are helpful partners on the journey of parenthood.
