We believe that God has called us, in partnership with parents, to help our children at Four Winds:
KNOW the Word of God and the Lord Jesus personally.
GROW to be like Jesus.
GO serve Him in their homes, church, school, and community.
During the Sunday morning sermon, children ages 3 years old to third grade have a special opportunity of their own. Kids will attend the first part of worship with their parents. Before the sermon, they will be dismissed by song and escorted to SonLight service.
Our children’s program engages kids with age-based learning in a fun and entertaining way. Whether it’s an activity, craft, lesson, or song your child will learn not just the stories of the Bible, but how to apply them in their lives. This gives parents an opportunity to be fully engaged in the Sunday morning message.

CONNECT And GroW
Our new program, Connect and Grow, aims to connect Sunday school, SonLight, and families as we work together to help give our kids a solid foundation in scripture. In 52 weeks we will be going through an overview of the entire Bible with the kids and you, the parents. Each week we will discuss how the Gospel is threaded through the entire Bible! We will follow God's story chronological from Creation to Revelation to help your child understand God's rescue plan and the good news of Jesus's love!
At the beginning of class, students will be asked questions from the previous week. Then our kids will go in depth in scripture during Sunday School reading and learning what the Bible says about the current weeks bible story.
In SonLight, we will worship and then give students a chance to recite the previous week's memory verse. After we will discuss the current week's Bible story. During class we will read from the "Laugh and Grow" bible, watch a short video, discuss questions, and do a craft all based on that weeks story. We will help the kids see how every book in the bible point to God's great plan of Jesus! During class time, students will be split by age.
We will provide each family with their own "Laugh and Grow" discussion bible. At home please read that weeks story and discuss deeper how the weeks story connects us back to Jesus! You will also be going over the discussion questions and practicing the memory verse.
