K - GRADE 5

WELCOME BACK!!



We are excited to bring back our ministries for K-3rd grade this fall! Beginning Sunday, September 13 at the 9:00am service, all of our early childhood classrooms (Nursery, Sprouts (2yrs), First Fruits (3yrs), and SonCatchers (4-5yrs)) and our elementary ministries (KidTown (K-1st grade) and KidNation (2nd-3rd grade)) will be open at 50% capacity.

FAMILIES WILL NEED TO REGISTER EACH WEEK to reserve a place in the classrooms since space is limited. Registration opens each week on Thursday at 6am and closes on Saturday at 10pm.
Click the button below to register.

Our club45 ministry to 4th & 5th graders is moving to Sunday evenings from 6-7:30pm. We are looking to expand and grow this important ministry to preteens and have more space and options on Sunday evening. We hope your 4th or 5th grader can join us!


Not ready to meet in person yet? No problem! We know there are many families like you and we want to keep you as connected as possible. Be sure to take advantage of the online delivery of our preschool and elementary weekend Sunday School teaching!
You will find the links in the section below this one.

WELCOME

The time to help your kids thrive in their relationship with Jesus is now! Children’s ministry at Plymouth Covenant Church strives to come alongside parents and be a part of the faith journey of your kids.  Here is some of what you will find for kids on the weekends here:

  • Kids worshipping Jesus—through singing, prayer, artwork, and movement, kids are learning what it means to give their time and attention to our Creator.
  • Kids reading the Bible—every group is focused on Scripture, teaching stories and lessons that kids can read for themselves in class and at home.
  • Kids learning to weave their faith in Jesus into everyday situations—we want kids to know what to do with what they believe, and we’re helping them know how to let their faith shape their actions.
  • Adults building relationships with kids—through storytelling, crafts, games, small groups, and other activities, kids’ lives are positively impacted from the love and attention of adult volunteers each time they come to Sunday school.

WEEKEND PROGRAMS

Secure Check-In

We offer secure check-in for our children’s programming, which means:

  • Automated check-in software prints child name tags and parent tags with matching security codes
  • Check in or register as a first-time guest at any children’s ministry check-in desk throughout the building—volunteers will be happy to assist you

NOTE: Our Sunday morning club45 class—kids in grades 4-5—uses paper sign-in sheets

What is the cost?
There’s an annual program fee of $30 per family, plus handbooks and uniforms as needed ($10 each). Scholarships are available.

What do you need to order?

Puggles (2 yr olds): both the story cards and the Puggles t-shirt are completely optional.

Cubbies (3-5 yr olds): all Cubbies need to order the Cubbies handbooks and the Cubbies vest is recommended for all first-time Cubbies. The vests run small, so order up a size or two since they need to wear it for two years.

Sparks (K-2nd grade): all first time Sparks (regardless of grade) need to order the HangGlider handbook.

Continuing Sparks who finished their handbook last year will order the next handbook:

  • Year 1: HangGlider (green)
  • Year 2: WingRunner (blue)
  • Year 3: SkyStormer (red)

Continuing Sparks who did not finish their handbook last year will continue in the book they have and do not need to order a handbook at this time.

The Sparks uniform is recommended for all first-time Sparks. They will wear the vest through 2nd grade, so you may want to order a larger size to accommodate growth.

Truth & Training (3rd-5th grade): all first time T&T kids (regardless of grade) need to order T&T Grace in Action.

Continuing T&T kids who finished their handbook last year will order the next handbook.

  • Year 1: Grace in Action
  • Year 2: T&T Evidence of Grace
  • Year 3: T&T Agents of Grace (new curriculum) or Ultimate Challenge 1 (old curriculum)
  • Year 4: Discovery of Grace (new curriculum) or Ultimate Challenge 2 (old curriculum)

Continuing T&T kids who did not finish their handbook last year will continue in the book they have and do not need to order a handbook at this time.

The T&T uniform is recommended for all first-time T&T kids. They will wear the uniform through 5th grade, so you may want to order a larger size to accommodate growth.

NOTE: If you have a 2nd grader that has finished the Sparks books or a 4th/5th grader that has finished the T&T books, please contact Pastor Sara about which handbook to order. You can use the “Ask a Question” button below to send her an email.
