The Mission of PRDX Kids is to see children transformed by the love of Jesus into followers marked by love, obedience, and joy. PRDX Kids exists to partner with parents in this journey of a child’s discipleship by creating an environment where the Word of God is taught and Jesus is worshiped.
How is it a Partnership?
We firmly believe that discipleship starts and primarily takes place in the home by parents. On Sundays, we partner with parents by providing age-appropriate environments in three classrooms: Tiny Town (birth-2 years), Kids City (2 years-kindergarten), and Big City (1st-5th grades). These classes center on gospel teaching and Christ-exalting worship and end with kids joining their family after the sermon to worship together.
We suggest using the family sheets for Tiny Town and Kids City or The Gospel Project for Kids Family App for Big City to introduce the lessons at home during the week. This content can be found each month within the Parents of The Paradox group on The City.
We also desire to be a great source for the equipping of parents on the task of raising children. Here are a few books we recommend to our parents Loving the Little Years, Give Them Grace, Shepherding A Child’s Heart, and Like Father Like Sons.
(6 months – 23 months)
Until your child’s second birthday, loving PRDX Kids team members will care for your baby or toddler. By providing this class, we can specialize our lessons and prayers for their age and understanding while still providing a safe and fun environment. Tiny Town is available in all three services.
(2 years to Kindergarten)
Kids City is our weekend ministry in which we care for and teach our preschool-age children at all three services. In Kids City, we worship the Lord through song and dance, have a small snack and hear teaching from Scripture. Focusing each lesson on our five foundational truths, we teach from the Scriptures and help parents proclaim to the next generation who God is and what He has done. Kids City’s Sunday teaching incorporates one of the following foundational beliefs into every lesson. Each month we will update you on the content from our Sunday lessons in the Parents of The Paradox group on The City (Click here to join). It is our hope that these truths take a firm hold of your child’s heart and are carried with them the rest of their lives:
God made everything
God is in charge of everything
Jesus came to save sinners
God is good
God wants to talk with us
(1st grade to 5th grade)
Big City is offered during the 10am and 11:45am services. When you arrive at one of these services, follow the signs to the PRDX kids check-in or ask a leader at the Connect Desk for assistance. In Big City, we worship the Lord through song and dance and gospel centered teaching. Each month we will post an update with the lessons your child is learning (click here to join our Parents of The Paradox group on The City) or you can download The Gospel Project for Kids Family App and follow along at home, using the current series, “In the Beginning.” It is our hope that these teachings help mold them into joyful followers of Jesus.
