COG Kids

At City of God Church, we want to come alongside parents and give every child that comes through our doors the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

What will my child learn at City of God? 

Our classes currently use The Gospel Project for Kids as our primary teaching curriculum. You can find out more about these lessons by clicking the link. 

Who will be watching my kids? 

All children's ministry volunteers must attend City of God Church for at least six months prior to serving. We also have a current background check on file for everyone who serves. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible concerning the safety of your children so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. ( )

What classes are available for my child? 

You will find a current class listing below.

Nursery

We offer a fully-staffed nursery for children ages newborn through 2 1/2 years old. 

Toddler

This is our class for children ages 2 1/2 to 3. It features age-appropriate lessons, activities, and music.

Preschool
 
This class is for children age 4 through the start of kindergarten. 
 
Elementary

We currently offer three different classes for students in elementary school. 

  • Kindergarten and 1st Grade
  • 2nd & 3rd Grade 
  • 4th - 6th Grade

1. Video Lesson: Like last week, there is a video lesson published on Vimeo. Due to the copyright of the Gospel Project content, this video will only be available until Friday July 31 and you must use the password cogkids to access it. These videos are meant to be adapted to your family's needs. You can play all 34 minutes while you watch the sermon, only show the lesson, only show the memory verse, or any other combination that works for you!   https://vimeo.com/showcase/7368944 

a. Kudos to all of the kids who have already memorized the verse for July! There are some very cute kids featured in the video this week!

c. I have created a "Monday Morning Devotional" that you can use at any time for follow up discussion of the lesson with your kids. The devotional is available here.   https://docs.google.com/document/d/1O6RMhEo_uQVLom-TdVAPjj9s0joFoMBd2u-CmC2iSc8/edit?usp=sharing

Little City Lesson July 19 and MORE!

Updated resources for CoG Kids and parents!
1. Video Church
2. Memory Verse Challenge
3. Sermon Notes for Kids
4. Feedback Link
 
 
1. Video Church: Use this link to access a Vimeo Showcase titled "CoG Kids July 19." This is a series of worship songs for kids, Bible lessons, and a memory verse challenge. There are multiple ways that you can utilize this based on your family's needs. You can play all of the videos back to back (just start the first one and it *should* autoplay each one after that). The entire showcase is designed to be around 34 minutes long (the length of the average sermon). You can also pick and choose which videos you want to play. Because of the rights to the curriculum, this showcase will only be available for 1 week and will require the password: cogkids to access. https://vimeo.com/showcase/7349555
 
You may also access coloring and activity pages related to the lesson here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LXgiYNVQNaJjJB1tW4f2Wt5nBe72QkiN/view?usp=sharing
 
2. Memory Verse Challenge: Whether you choose to show your kids the video church or have them watch the sermon with you, they can participate in the Memory Verse Challenge! Have your kids memorize Revelation 21:5 and record them reciting it. Then email it to me at for the chance to be featured in next week's video lesson! View a video of the memory verse with hand motions here. https://vimeo.com/438957539
 
3. Sermon Notes for Kids: We have created "Sermon Notes for Kids" to help any kids at church or watching the sermon online pay attention. Copies will be provided at the communion table or can be printed here. If you are coming to church, bring your own writing utensils! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sLR8GLVfGfiM57gX3ZPmzjZU-eXj9xy-/view?usp=sharing
 
4. Feedback Link: As I continue to develop new programs for our kids, I need your feedback! Please fill out this form with any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns!
