Make an IMPACT in Our Ministry!

Our main purpose in Bibleopolis is for kids to Grow up like Jesus!
That is why we created and designed our children’s ministry around the life and lineage of Jesus. Starting in the Nursery (King David’s palace) to Preschool (Zebedee’s Fishing School) to Elementary (Jerusalem), our goal is for kids to have fun, build relationships and learn about Jesus as they grow up.

You may have lots of questions about what to expect on your first visit. Here are a few topics we hope will help answer some of those questions:

+ Security
Your child’s security is important to us. In order to pick up your child you will need to present your child’s matching tag, which you will receive when you check-in. If you lose your child’s corresponding tag, you will need to present identification at the Welcome Desk (located on the first floor of Bibleopolis) to receive a duplicate tag in order to receive your child.

+ Communion
Communion is the Lord's Supper and is to be observed repeatedly by those who are followers of Jesus as a symbol of what He did through the cross. (see Our Beliefs). We want the kids to have this opportunity too. In Upper Bibleopolis (grades 1-4) we will observe a time to focus on Jesus during each weekend service, and during this time, communion will be available in the Upper Room. We will lead into this time by asking that only kids who have made a decision to follow Jesus (and observed this through baptism) and have received permission from their parents participate. As always, we would love to help you answer any questions that you or your child have about this; our contact information is at the bottom of this page.

+ Allergies
If your child has food or environmental allergies, attach an allergy alert sticker to the front of his/her shirt so team members are aware of the issue. If your child has an allergy severe enough to require an epi-pen, please let us know.

+ Special Needs
Jesus Friendship Club is available during our 8:45am service time to support your child if necessary. Kids with severe allergies, behavior challenges, physical limitations, or other disabilities are served by this awesome team based out of Room 106 in Lower Bibleopolis. Kids participating in Jesus Friendship Club that are of Elementary age join together in the Temple during the large group portion of the weekend service.

Baptism

Starting Point 1-4: If your elementary age child is asking questions about faith, following Jesus or baptism, then Starting Point 1-4 is a great place to start. We have a printed resource called "Starting Point, Home Edition" available at the Bibleopolis Welcome Desk that serves as a guide and a gauge to help your student understand and begin owning their faith, and it is a first step towards attending the one-hour class. The monthly class is designed for parents and elementary students to attend together. We meet on the second Sunday of each month at 8:45am. To attend, email Amanda Snow at

Connect

We feel like it is important to connect and involve parents in the Spiritual journey of your kids!  To help you navigate, we have a few amazing resources that we would love to make you aware of. First, we invite you to look at the resource Parent Cue. We also invite you to stop at one of our Parent Resource walls for phase cards, phase books and discussion guides. These resource walls are located at the CLC and the Bibleopolis Welcome Desk.
