TeamKID Grades 1-6

Team K.I.D. stands for Kids in Discipleship. This group is all about helping kids follow Jesus, with a fun sports theme mixed in.  We expand on the lesson from Sunday morning with a focus on following Jesus.  We begin each week with a mini-sports segment followed by a huddle around God’s Word and personal growth challenge, then we end with fun games reinforcing the lesson, the discipleship challenge or both and working on our weekly memory verse.
