Continue to pass the ball back and forth as you discuss the following questions as a family.
-Why should we want to show love to others?

-How does it affect our relationships with others when we show love to them?
PRAY: As a family, share anything you want to talk to God about. Together, pray about those things. Ask the Holy Spirit to work through you and to have the Fruit of the Spirit in all you say, do and think. Thank God for allowing the Holy Spirit to work in and through each of you.

Renovate Kids Ministry
We value each child and family who comes to Renovate Church. Renovate Kids Ministry is a special ministry designed for children 6 months to 4th grade. We believe each child is created to have a relationship with God and has unique talents, abilities and callings, which need to be cultivated. Our passion is to see each child growing in their relationship with God and His purpose for their lives. We are also passionate about Kid’s Ministry being offered in a fun, friendly and safe environment, so children can experience the love of Jesus on their level.
6 months to Pre-K
Through playtime, music, and teaching, we partner with parents to introduce babies and toddlers to God, and his son, Jesus. Babies are given special attention as volunteers care for infants and play with older babies who are on the move. Toddlers play and explore as we provide lots of opportunities for them to move and stay active. Through fun and interactive Bible lessons and music, kids are appropriately introduced to God and the world he created.
Elementary (Kindergarten to 4th grade)
Through interactive activity, teaching, small groups, and music, we partner with parents to build a strong biblical foundation for kids. During each service, kids learn about Jesus and the Bible and have time to reflect and pray. Age specific lessons are designed to capture kid’s attention and imagination.
What to Expect
Visiting us for the first time? One our of volunteers will be happy to register and check in your child.
Your child’s safety is of the highest importance to us. Every volunteer at Renovate kids is required to have a background check. Each week you check in, you’ll receive an assigned number that you will use to pick up your child. If you lose your child’s corresponding tag, you will need to present identification in order to receive your child.

If your child has food or environmental allergies or special needs, we’ll make a note so team members are aware. Make sure to let us know of any unique concerns at check in and we’ll do our best to accommodate you and your child.

We’re so excited that you and your child are talking about baptism together. When it comes to baptism at Renovate Church, we have a few short steps for you and your family. We hope this will help kids and parents understand what baptism really means as they make this important decision in following Jesus.
First, pick up a copy of our baptism info booklet, All In for Jesus, A Guide for Children to Understand Their Faith. Please read and work through the book together as a family, and make sure to write the Letter to Jesus that is mentioned in the back of the booklet. Next, you and your child should meet with one of our elementary staff. During this meeting, we’ll talk about the decision to follow Jesus, what baptism means, why we do it, and what baptism changes about our relationship with God. If you would like to schedule a meeting or have any questions, please feel free to contact April Jamerson here.
