Discipleship at Any Age
It doesn't matter if you are a big human or a little human, we are all called to make disciples who make disciples. At Origin we take the discipleship of our children very seriously. Here, children receive the same love and respect as their parents, just as Jesus modeled when he demanded that the children be allowed to come to him. When Jesus took a child in his arms, he said that whoever receives a child like this in his name receives him (Mark 9:36-37). Consistent with Jesus’ example, children are received as valued members of our community as a whole. The Gospel is transforming not only our lives, but the lives of the smallest too.
The Role of Origin Kids
Origin Kids is more than childcare during our Sunday Gatherings; it is an opportunity to introduce our children to God’s story and to discipleship after Jesus. The curriculum and teaching are consistent with the preaching in our main gatherings and is intended to supplement, not replace, the parents' role in teaching and modeling discipleship at home. The staff at Origin Kids work together with parents to help each child grow in their understanding of God's story and to make much of Jesus wherever God leads them.
Origin Kids currently offers five classes: Babes (Infant to 18 mos.), Toddlers (18 mos. to 3 yrs.), Pre-K/Kindergarten (3 to 6 yrs.), 1st - 3rd grade and 4th - 5th grade.
We want to serve all children from infants through 5th grade, especially children with special needs. We will do whatever we can to bless and accommodate any child.
How to Check In
Our check-in process uses The City to store your child's information; when you check in, information is entered by parents for their children, a bar code is scanned and linked to it - any bar code can be used. A label is then printed for each child with your child’s name, the class, their code, and any important information such as special needs and food allergies. A label for picking up your children is also printed, this label has your last name, your children’s first initials, and their code. Security is very important to us, our staff is required to check the pickup label before releasing children from the classes.
