CBCKidz

cbcKidz exists to plant the Word of God into the hearts and minds of the children who attend Cornerstone Bible Church. We are here to be our parents’ biggest cheerleaders as they train and teach and love their children.


Practical Information

We continue to make adjustments to changes brought on by Covid. First Hour classes for K-5 now begin @ 9:30 sharp in the Choir Room (the big room directly behind the sanctuary.) First Hour classes for the nursery, the pre-schoolers, and the separate class for our Kindergarteners will resume once we are able to recruit and train teachers and helpers for these age groups. Second Hour Nursery, Pre-School, and Kindergarten classes – all located on the cbcKidz Hallway - open their doors @ 10:30. Children’s Church for Elementary students (Grades 1-5) is dismissed right before the sermon. They now meet in the Youth Room.

Nursery

Our Nursery volunteers, led by Ivy Amarh, strive to provide excellent care for the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of our babies and toddlers (6 weeks – 2years.) While the primary focus is to care for their physical needs, we hope to create a calm and peaceful atmosphere that helps the children feel secure. Furthermore, through music and play and Bible stories, we hope to communicate basic truths about our great and mighty God.


Nursery serves our babies from 6 weeks to 2 years old.

Pre-School (Ages 3&4)

Three goals drive the cbcKidz pre-school ministry:

  • To care for the children’s physical and emotional needs in such a way that their parents can rest easy, knowing that their child is in good hands.
  • To create an atmosphere that brings glory to God. We want these little ones to look forward to their time in class.
  • To continue the process of planting the Word of God into the hearts and minds of these children. 

“New Testament Stories,” produced by Truth 78, is the curriculum used in our Pre-School classes during the 2021-22 school year. This chronological teaching of New Testament stories aims to acquaint our children with a great big God. Bible Memory will focus on one key verse for each month.


The Pre-School Class serves our 3 and 4 year-old children and is led by a team of rotating teachers and helpers.

Kindergarten

The 2nd Hour Kindergarten class is currently led by veteran teachers, Marcus and Joyce Whatley. Like their younger counterparts, these Kindergarteners will also be traveling through the New Testament throughout the year. Bible Memory for 2021-22 for these children will focus on several key passages from both the Old and New Testaments.

Elementary (Grades 1-5)

Our 1st Hour cbcKidz classes, Children’s Church and VBS (Vacation Bible School) work together to give our K-5th Graders a solid foundation of Biblical Truth. The Answers in Genesis curriculum, which both 1st Hour classes and VBS utilize, is not for the “faint-hearted.” In about 4 years (200 lessons, 20 units), the 1st hour classes will journey from Genesis to Revelation. This material does not shy away from challenging portions of the Scripture. Drama, music, games and old-fashioned teaching are all tools in our basket to share the Truth of the Bible with our elementary aged kids. cbcKidz places a high priority on the memorization of Scripture. While all 3 legs of cbcKidz spend time memorizing verses from the Bible, our elementary children take it to another level, memorizing both significant passages, and key verses.

cbcKidz Volunteers

It takes an “army” of volunteers to carry out the mission of cbcKidz throughout the year. If you enjoy kids and are passionate about communicating the Word of God to the next generation, talk with Debra Sanders or others already on the team to learn more about the various roles that our volunteers fill. Though many of our teachers have served for multiple years (or even decades), we are usually looking for one-year commitments for our lead teachers and helpers. Other very important, though less time consuming opportunities, develop as the year unfolds. Many of our current “super” teachers got their start helping a veteran. This could be you! Pray about the possibilities!
