Valuing the Kids

To learn more about children’s activities at Redeemer, contact our Director of Children, Youth & Family Ministry Ms. Amy Long.

Children are loved at Redeemer!
That’s why we design meaningful, fun activities for each age group that focus on teaching biblical truths while building healthy connections. Your kids will be comfortable as caring volunteers keep them busy! From classes on Sundays, to Redeemer Kids Club on Wednesdays, to regular social events, to chances to serve others, Redeemer kids are learning to let God into every part of their lives.

Where in the World is Flat Jesus? 

FLAT JESUS was created as a way for God’s people to spread the word of Jesus and to stay connected with each other through this busy summer season. Take FLAT JESUS when out to dinner, to a ball game, in the garden, at the park, fishing, to the beach, in the car on a road trip, on the airplane, or just hanging out with your friends. Take pictures with friends or family and see how many places we can take FLAT JESUS with us this summer and fall, and spread His word! Here are the instructions:

1. Pick up a FLAT JESUS sheet at church this Sunday and color/cut it out—or print your own
2. Return it to Ms. Amy with your name on it, and we’ll laminate it for you
3. Take FLAT JESUS with you wherever you go this summer and snap a selfie or a pic of Jesus out in the sun with you!
4. Post your picture to Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #FlatJesus (or send it to Ms. Amy)
5. Have fun and remember that Jesus is always with you!
