partnering with families to create a safe and engaging environment
where children can experience God's love!
Jesus holds children very close to His heart, and so do we here at DC3.
With each child’s relationship with Jesus, our children’s ministry is designed in such a way that kids can grow at their own level and pace. We strive to make sure that the short time we have these little ones will be the best hour of their week. We want kids to be excited about being here to learn about God’s love for them every week!
what do we do?
RESPECT: 1 Peter 2:17 “Show Proper respect of everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.” ENCOURAGE: 1 Thessalonians 5:11 “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
ACCEPT: Romans 15:7 “Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God.”
LOVE: Mark 12:30-31 “Love the Lord your God with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is not commandment greater than these.”
Lil’ Dippers: 6 weeks – 2 years
“Dipping into the love of God”
We feel that even at the youngest age, it’s not too early to instill Godly principles through play, crafts, worship and love. We are devoted to laying a strong foundation at the earliest age possible. When the Lil’ Dippers transition into Shining Stars they will know the love of Jesus!
Shining Stars: 3 - 4 years
“Shining God’s love for all to see”
We continue to build upon the foundation laid in our Lil’ Dippers ministry by using a little more complex Bible lessons, crafts and worship in order to reach the children where they are at, but still encourage and guide their growth. Shining Stars consists of lead teachers, support teachers and student volunteers.
When Shining Stars transition into RevKidz they will know that Jesus loves them, understanding their personal relationship with Jesus!
RevKidz: Kindergarten thru 5th Grade
“Live a life that revolves around God”
In RevKidz, we continue to develop the spiritual journey started in Shining Stars by encouraging each child to live a life that revolves around God. Both students and adults serve as leaders, helping to guide the kids in their walk with God by modeling a Godly lifestyle and leading in worship, teaching, and classroom support. Bible lessons and principles are taught through story-telling, creative illustrations, dance, video, and student participation. When RevKidz graduate into Student Ministries, we want them to have experienced God’s love and know how to share it with others!
A fun filled night for K-5th graders where they are given an opportunity to CONNECT with each other and the Bible to reinforce what is being taught in RevKidz on Sunday. Join us Wednesdays at 6:30pm!
SPECIAL NEEDS MINISTRY
At DC3 Kids, we believe that all children can experience God’s love!
Sometimes kids benefit from having a buddy who can help them participate in weekend classes with their peers. Special Buddies serve alongside children with special needs in the classroom, providing guidance and friendship as they learn about God.
Our Space is a class for children with special needs who benefit from an environment designed especially for them. Weekly lessons centered around God’s Word are presented in an engaging and developmentally appropriate way. Our Space is offered Sundays at the 10:00 service at both the Punta Gorda and North Port campuses.
To help us best serve your family, please complete the form below before your first service, and plan to arrive a few minutes early for registration and to help your child settle into the classroom.
