Kid City exists to prepare kids to take their place in God’s Kingdom
Fun-filled learning opportunities designed to help kids grow in their faith!
At BrightonAG, we offer three specific venues to minister to kids each week.
The first venue is our Sunday School classes that take place on Sunday mornings from 9 to 9:50am. We offer three separate classes, each designed to provide a Biblical worldview in an age-appropriate setting. Our Sunday School teachers are passionate about teaching children the foundational elements of the Bible; catalyst for their own spiritual foundations.
The second venue offered weekly is our Kid City Sunday morning service from 10-11:30am. This service is designed for children in 1st through 6th grades. Kid City gives children an opportunity to experience amazing Bible teaching in a high-energy, fun environment, where funny storytelling and crazy games are used to entertain and educate. In Kid City, children will encounter God in praise & worship and are encouraged to live out their faith every day.
The third venue, on Wednesday nights is where children are divided into two groups – Girls Club Ministry and Royal Rangers.
The Girls Club Ministry is for elementary girls and is divided into four classes: Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades, 3rd through 5th grades, and 6th grade. Each class combines a variety of elements such as games, stories, and fun activities. Our goal through Girls Club is to build up and encourage girls as they experience and recognize the love of Jesus in their lives.
Royal Rangers is for elementary boys and is divided into three groupings: Kindergarten-through 2nd grades, 3rd and 4th grades, and 5th and 6th grades. Royal Ranger leaders are dedicated to teaching boys what it means to have a heart for God while learning about practical life skills and studying God’s Word.
Curious to know more? Please stop by and say ‘Hi.’ We’d love to meet you and your kids!
“I feel so blessed that BrightonAG offers a children’s ministry that my kids are excited to attend. Pastor Rob & Alicia incorporate praise & worship, games, and a lesson in a way that engages all kids. My boys have learned the books of the Bible and Biblical principles that help them make good choices in everyday life. Pastor Rob is a role model to my sons, and really goes above and beyond to build a personal relationship with them. He has even attended their sporting events. We love Kid City and BrightonAG!"
