    SUNDAY MORNING from 11:00am to 12:00pm

    Kindergarten through 5th grade


    CHECK IN WITH US IN THE SANCTUARY WELCOME CENTER! 

    (Children will be released to go to Real Kids during the 11 a.m. worship service after a special kids message. They will stay there until parents pick them up in the Fellowship Hall after service).


    REALKIDS is a safe and fun place for children to connect with each other and with God. Our goal is to not only teach children about God’s Word, but also how they can apply His Word to their daily lives. Every Sunday, REALKIDS will engage in crafts, games, music, fellowship, worship, and Bible Application. 


    Contact Rebecca Wilson for more information on how to register your child or to volunteer. We love our volunteers!

    SCRIPTURE: 

    Matthew 22:39

     ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’


    Luke 10:25-29 New International Version (NIV)

    25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

    26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

    27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

    28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

    29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

    Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book. They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor—the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation—at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.

    We want to help kids take up the gauntlet this summer and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God and sharing God’s love in a world that needs it more than ever.
