KidSpace is fun and educational
Portland Community Church provides a safe and loving environment where children find and love God, explore His Word, build relationships with His family, and discover their own God-given uniqueness. The children’s classes meet at the same time as the adult services at 9:00 and 10:45 on Sunday morning. So, while you are experiencing the teaching and music of the adult service, your children are safe and experiencing God at their level in their own fun and exciting way.
We provide a safe place for your children. That’s why we conduct background checks on all volunteers serving in the children’s ministry.
Infants/toddlers (0-36 months)
This is the place of first impression where children experience the love of God through His church. As infants and toddlers encounter our loving volunteers, they learn what it means to belong to the larger family of God, and parents can feel comfortable with the care their children receive. The children are engaged as they explore the wonderful world that God made for them.
Preschool (3-5 Years)
This is where children begin to embrace God as their Heavenly Father. We want them to know that God loves them and wants to be their friend. We do this by teaching God’s Word at their own comprehension level so that the principles and truths of Scripture become relevant to them at their early stage in life.
We do this through:
Small group time
This is where children are introduced to the critical concept of trusting God. Through interactive Bible studies, crafts, and games, the kids are engaged at their level. Children are then given a fun and engaging recap of the Bible lesson to take home so that parents can reinforce the lesson with their child.
This is where children begin moving into knowing and loving God. Through interactive Bible studies, crafts, and games, the kids are engaged at their level. They are also challenged to begin taking ownership of their faith in memorizing Bible verses and reading the Bible outside of Sunday mornings.
Our lessons begin in the classroom and finish at home. Parents are encouraged to continue the Bible lesson at home during the week. All children have a “bring home” page each Sunday.
Tru Story – At Home
What is Tru Story – At Home?
Tru Story – At Home, is provided as a parent resource with each week’s lesson. This resource is designed to help parents intentionally spend time in God’s Word with their children before they come to Sunday school each week. The best part is that parents are first to introduce their kids to the Bible content they’ll hear at church. Lives can be changed as parents are equipped to create space for God to meet with their families.
We are so glad that the Lord is moving in your heart to draw you closer to Him and pray that you find Portland Community Church to be a welcoming family!
