Welcome to PORT KIDZ
PORT KIDZ is dedicated to teaching our kids how the entire bible revolves around God’s amazing grace while helping them understanding their part in His Story to them.
Our gospel-centred curriculum takes our kids from Genesis to Revelation, showing them how the Father planned our salvation, the Son accomplished it and the Spirit is now applying the reforming implications of it.
Children between the ages of 3-11 are dismissed to go downstairs during the Passing of the Peace portion of our liturgy (approximately 11:15), where they are cared for by a team of qualified children’s workers with police checks.
Our PARENTS’ LOUNGE is located downstairs and is a room for parents with babies aged 0-3. Here you can listen and enjoy the service via LiveStream while feeding your little one, playing with them or just chilling on the couches. The space also has highchairs, changing tables and a microwave.
PORT KIDZ: PRESCHOOLERS (age 3-5)
Preschoolers are introduced to the gospel using the Gospel Project curriculum. Songs, activities, prayers and a bible story comprise the backbone of our program. We also try and avoid making crafts that messy and fall apart in the car on the home 🙂
PORT KIDZ: Grades 1-6
This team uses the senior level of the Gospel Project curriculum. We desire to support parents by teaching children how Christ’s work is both anticipated and revealed from Genesis to Revelation in a way kids can understand. In doing this, we seek to provide them with a foundational understanding of how God planned our redemption, Christ accomplished our redemption and the Spirit is now applying our redemption.
KIDZ Grade 7 & Up
We desire to support parents in teaching the gospel to their children. By sitting under the preaching and ministering of God’s Word together, families can continue in conversations during the week and grow together. Sermons are approximately 30 minutes.
MONTHLY FAMILY SERVICE
On the last Sunday of the month, PORT CHURCH participates in a FAMILY SERVICE. This is a parred down liturgy that the whole family can enjoy together. PORT KIDZ is given a segment of this service where they present what they have been learning to the whole congregation.
Each Sunday, children are dismissed with a “KEY CARD”; a resource that you can use to help your child discussed what they have learned. In addition, each week parents receive an email that will help guide them in discussion.
Jesus Storybook Bible
A great resource for young children which teaches them that Jesus is the centre of the scriptures and shows them how every story “whispers His name”.
