Vineyard Fullerton Children's Ministry


No Kids' Table


What do we value?
 Our primary value in Vineyard Fullerton Kid's Ministry is relationship. We want to do everything we can to draw kids into genuine relationship with God, with biblical role models, and with each other because that is where real life-change happens. One way that we effectively do this is by creating an environment that is real, intentional, safe, relevant, and of course - fun!  

We are committed to giving our absolute best - relying on God as the source of everything we need. Colossians 3:23 says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord." Therefore, things like team training, punctuality, preparedness, and attitude are very important to us.

  

Who are we looking for?
   Here at Vineyard Fullerton, we believe that everyone gets to play, we believe there is no kids' table. We are all part of what the Bible calls the 'Body of Christ'. Each of us has been given specific gifts for the purpose of honoring God and blessing others.

  We are in search of people who are living examples of Jesus; people who are faithful, available, servant-hearted, and teachable.

  We believe that as we allow God to work in us and through us, our lives will have a profound impact on our children, our community, and our future generations.

You are invited to serve alongside us in one of the most effective investments your life can make!

Early Childhood


Our vision and passion at Vineyard Fullerton is to bring kids face to face with Jesus. Within early childhood ministry, we want to bring the youngest of children 2 through 5 years of age face to face with Jesus. Guiding them on a path toward committing themselves on a healthy life-long relationship with God; learning how to do everything Jesus said to do. Jesus loves kids and values spending time with them and we want to follow His model the very best we can. Therefore, we seek to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children can come as they are and experience the wonder, the love, and presence of Jesus that is designed uniquely for them. Parents can relax knowing that while they are engaged in the service, their children are engaged in a rich environment filled with relevant, relational learning and fun.


We know it can feel strange to leave your child with others and we have considered this. We deeply value the safety and security of all children and volunteers. No matter which class your child goes to, he or she will be checked in each week and given a security sticker with a unique security code on it and a matching parent sticker. For your child's safety, only the person with the matching security sticker will be allowed to check him or her out. We also use this unique security code to contact parents using pagers if there is ever a need. Each of our Vineyard Fullerton volunteers completes an application process, which includes a security background check, before joining our team and participates in ongoing team training. We also ensure that toys and equipment are safe, sanitized and age appropriate.

Early Childhood: 2 Years to Kindergarten


We believe that even our youngest Vineyard Fullerton Kids can accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, love Him wholeheartedly and grow into His devoted followers. The leaders in the early childhood classrooms take seriously the responsibility and the privilege of being among the first persons outside of the child's family to introduce small children to Jesus. During their time with us, children spend time worshipping as a large group, then split up into age specific class rooms where they receive Bible teaching, do fun crafts and activities that reinforce the teaching. We also send a "Parent Cue" with the child each week that has great activities related to the lesson for you to do as a family all week long.

We'd love to talk about any questions you may have.



Classrooms and age groups:


Vineyard Fullerton is structured to give your kids the best possible experience while with us. Classrooms are based on these age groups:


1st Grade


2-3rd Grade


4-5th Grade


We are excited by the truth that kids can accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, love Him wholeheartedly and grow into His devoted followers. The leaders in the grade school take seriously the responsibility and the privilege of continually pointing kids toward Jesus. During their time with us, children spend time worshipping and interacting as a large group, then split up into age specific small groups where they engage in Bible teaching, participate in discussions and activities that reinforce the teaching and apply Biblical truths to life today. Because we value prayer, during small group times children pray together and for each other, connecting with the Holy Spirit. We also send a "Parent Cue" with the child each week that has great activities related to the lesson for you to do as a family all week long in addition to a "God Time Card" for the child to follow on their own.




Elementary Classes


Elementary Classes are an extension of our Grade School Ministry, we want to bring 4th and 5th graders face to face with Jesus. Guiding them on a path of growing toward committing themselves to a healthy life-long relationship with God; learning how to do everything Jesus said to do. We want all 4th and 5th graders to feel connected and cared for.


In our elementary classes we intentionally create a space where kids feels as though they belong, a place were they can be heard, a place where they can build life-long small group skills.

This is also a place where our committed leaders and parents can work together to give our kids who are in transition a boost up before they take the leap into the sometimes tumultuous Jr. High years, developing a vital personal relationship with God that will dramatically impact their lives and their influence within the world.
