Reality Stockton Kids


Sunday Mornings at RS Kids are designed to engage and inspire your little one through times of singing, teaching, crafts, and games/activities. Meeting time begins at 10:45 in conjunction with the main service. Our curriculum is from The Gospel Project/Lifeway Christian Resources and entitled The Gospel Project: The Story Begins. The children’s Bible that corresponds with this curriculum is the Big Picture Interactive Storybook Bible. We encourage all of our RS Kids families to pick up this Bible at our resource table, as it invites children to discover that Jesus is at the center of God’s great story for salvation.

At RS Kids, kids safety is our priority. All of our volunteers go through an extremely thorough background check and training process. Kids are never alone with a single adult at any time and only authorized parents/guardians and volunteers are allowed in the kids’ area. Additionally, no child can be picked up without the check-in ticket that was issued before service.

If you would like to put your child in RS kids, check-in begins 15 minutes before service starts and concludes 15 minutes after service ends. We use Kid Check for your child’s safety. Kid check allows us to page you during service through your cell phone. In order to check your child out, you must sign him or her out at the check-in station and present your guardian receipt to their teacher after they have been checked out.

Moms, we have a room right off the sound room where you can still hear and see the sermon with comfortable chairs provided. We also have a changing table available. We ask that this room be restricted to only nursing moms.

Exploring God's Word Together


Nursery

The nursery is for babies ages 8 weeks to 2 years. Our volunteers are there to care for, play with, and pray for your child in order for you to attend the main service. Gold fish and water are provided, but please, bring any additional baby care items and leave instructions with the RS Kids nursery worker(s). We do not let babies cry for more than 10 minutes before calling a parent out so please keep your phone on vibrate so a nursery worker can contact you if necessary.

Two's & Threes

In the toddler room at Reality Kids, we welcome ages 2 and 3. Toddlers are encouraged to play, create, and experience the love of Jesus. They are a part of our main time together where they get to worship the Lord through song and watch and listen to the Bible story for the day. During class time, our toddler volunteers show them the love of Christ through an age appropriate activity, craft, and brief discussion of the Bible story they are learning about that day.

Preschool & Kindergarten

At this age, kids begin to have more and more questions. Our volunteers are trained to help answer those questions and start the critical thinking skills that makes a child’s faith in God something that becomes their own. They also have a time of worship, Bible teaching, and crafts and games that reinforce the Bible lesson.

1st - 3rd Grade

In this age group, children move from play based learning to having more time for discussion of the Bible lesson. Our teachers ask more questions that allow the kids to seek answers and long after an understanding of the Word of God on their own. They are also included in our time of worship and a Bible lesson as a corporate group.

4th - 6th Grade

This classroom is designed for the pre-teen years to start not only understanding but applying the gospel. It is our desire for them to have a deeply rooted understanding of the gospel. Together with their leaders they will have a Bible lesson, discussion, application, and fun crafts and games. We also encourage these kids to take on more of a leadership role in our group time as all of the younger kids naturally look up to them as the oldest kids in RS Kids.
