Derwood Bible Church provides a Sunday School ministry for children ages 3 years old through 4th grade.
Visitors and Guests: You can pre-register your child by filling out the form on the bottom of this webpage. When you come Sunday morning, please stop by the guest table just inside the front doors of the main building in order to check in. You can always register your child on a Sunday morning as well.
The KidZone staff seeks to ensure that each child feels valued and welcomed, leaving each week knowing that God loves him or her and has a wonderful plan for their life. Our purpose is to support parents as they share the gospel and disciple their children. We want parents to know what their children are learning and provide resources to review the content in the context of normal family life.
Teachers work with our pastor of community development, Jason Purdy, to deliver the message of Jesus Christ in fresh, innovative and exciting ways that engage the children.
Classes are grouped by age and grade. After participating in praise and worship with their families in the auditorium, children are dismissed to their individual KidZone classes.
Located in the two classrooms off the foyer in the big church building. Parents escort their children to these classes when they are dismissed and pick them up at the same location after the service.
- Pandas 3 year olds
- Lions 4 year olds
Kindergarten & Elementary (1st-4th grade)
Their teachers will meet their class in the foyer and escort them to their class room in the small church building right next door. Parents will pick their children up at their classroom after the service.
- 1st Grade and 2nd Grade
- 3rd Grade and 4th Grade
- Children older than 4th grade attend the service with their families.
Please contact Pastor Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the KidZone programs at Derwood Bible Church.
