    WELCOME: After being checked in at the welcome desk, children will either go to their rooms, or begin the church service with their parents and then go to their rooms (depending on the service schedule - see Worship Service at a Glace). When children arrive in their rooms, they will be welcomed by their small group leaders (SGL) and connect with their friends while participating in a quick activity introducing the weekly Truth or Bottom Line.

    LARGE GROUP: Kids will then transition into large group where they will participate in kid-friendly worship and hear the Bible story through interactive and media-supported creative teaching.

    SMALL GROUP CONNECT: Kids will return to their small groups to participate in developmentally and spiritually age appropriate activities to grasp that week's Truth and bottom line and make it relevant to their lives. The leaders and kids will pray for, challenge, and encourage one another to apply what they learned.
