Welcome to TJN Kids
We absolutely love kids at TJN and we can't wait for them to know and learn
about the God who created them, loves them, and is with them each and everyday.
Everything that is experienced in TJN Kids is designed to do just that.
Lil' Trekkers | Birth-Preschool
Lil' Trekkers is a place where kids get to play, hear a Bible story, learn bible verses, sing, make friends, and be encouraged by their leaders to make wise decisions.
We love to partner with parents to introduce kids to what it means to follow Jesus.
Kidventure | Grades K-5
In Kidventure, kids have a place where they can make the decision to follow Jesus and grow in their faith.
They'll have a fun time learning about God with music, games, memory verses and teaching that is designed just for them.
We can’t wait to serve you and your family!
When you get to TJN, look for the Kids Check-In area.
A staff or volunteer will be there to answer any questions you have,
help you get checked in, and find the right room for your child.
Plan to arrive early so you can drop off your kids and head into the service without missing anything!

God has given us an amazing mission, to shine his love for the whole world to see! When we love, serve, and share Jesus’ story, we’re like shining lights, showing everyone who God is.
APRIL 10.11 | THE CHURCH SHINES
After Jesus left, his followers started meeting together, and called themselves “the church.” This week we’ll find out how the church began, and see how we’re part of it, too!
Big Idea: I can be part of the church.
At Home: Pray for your church, the people who work there, and for people who will meet God by coming to church.
Ask: In our Bible Adventure, we heard how Jesus’ followers met together. What were they known as? (The Church.)
What are some of the things we do in church today? (Learn about God, sing, have fun, pray.)
Memory Verse: Acts 1:8 | “You will even tell other people about me from one end of the earth to the other.”
The story of Jesus changes everything.
If life is a work of art, Jesus has the power to turn it into something beautiful, like switching from black and white to full technicolor.
APRIL 10.11 | GOD IS WORKING THROUGH MY COMMUNITY
Jesus changed everything, but only a few people knew about it. Fortunately, God had a plan to share Jesus’ story with the whole world. To make that plan happen, Jesus’ followers started the church. Find out how the church began, and why you’re an important part of it, this week!
Big Idea: God is working through community.
After Video Questions:
Do you think Trixie joining this group is a good idea? Why or why not?
What are some things that make a community or group “good”?
(They help each other, they are kind, they care about each other.)
What’s great about working together with others?
What can be tough about working together with others?
Look Up and Read: Romans 12:15-16. These verses are about being good friends and neighbors to others.
Discuss: Who is in our “community” today?
Who are the people we see regularly?
(You could talk about family, neighbors, friends at school, teams, and church.)
The Point: It takes all of us working together to make a difference in our families, schools, communities, and our world. God has given us a mission to change the world together. When we serve, encourage others, and join people doing great things in our communities, we’re showing that we trust and love God.
Memory Verse: Ephesians 2:10 | We are God’s creation. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good works. Long ago God prepared these works for us to do.
We are doing everything we can to maintain a clean and safe environment for our kids and volunteers. Here’s what you can expect:
- Classrooms will be cleaned before and after services
- Kids will need to wash their hands prior to entering classes
- Masks are suggested for everyone over the age of 6
- Children will receive their own supplies necessary to participate in activities
- Kids will use hand sanitizer as needed throughout the service
- Snacks will be individually wrapped
- Volunteers will use gloves during snack and whenever necessary
All Kids volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before they start volunteering—so know that your kids are in safe hands.
Every weekend at Kids Check-In, your family is assigned a random code that is on your child’s name tag and your security tag. You will use your security tag during pick up so we can determine each child goes home with who brought them.
If your child feels sick at home, they’ll feel sick at church. We want all of our kids and volunteers to remain healthy and happy, so we ask that kids be kept at home if they’re not feeling well. We’ll be very excited to see them the following week!
In addition if your child has had any of the following symptoms within the last 24 it would be best if they stayed home and rested up to be ready to come back when they feel better.
- Fever (100 or higher)
- Flu symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, chills
- Excessive signs of a cold: coughing, sneezing, sore throat, runny nose (except for clear)
- Discharge from eyes or ears
- Communicable skin infections (impetigo, boils, ringworm)
- Childhood diseases such as: chicken pox, mumps, measles, rubella, pertussis, or scarlet fever
