Kids Connect in the Summer

At St. James, we don’t think there is ever a time where we should take a vacation from teaching children about Jesus. However, summertime is a great time for families to travel — near and far, which means our class sizes shrink considerably. We recognize that our Sunday small group leaders also like this time to relax with their families. As such, we condense our Kids Connect classrooms into 2 active classes and Nursery service.

Starting in July, kids having just completed grades 1-5 will meet in Room 6. Each Sunday, a different one of our grade school leaders or I will be leading the activities. Our 3 year old preschoolers are invited to join us in Nursery, or if they are ready for more sit-down time, they are welcome to try their time with the PreK/Kindergarten leaders in Room 9. Summertime is a perfect time for preschoolers to test out their endurance in the PreK class. If you’re wondering… we “promote” all the kids to their next class year in September.
