Come be part of what God is doing through Vineyard’s children’s ministry. This is a special place where kids come to know Jesus & enjoy Him forever. There are many opportunities to serve available, and no prior experience is necessary. Remember not all hero’s wear capes!
KOTV where kids are loved, valued and know they matter!
At Vineyard we love helping kids grow in their relationship with Jesus and others. Our desire is that every child who comes to KOTV feels loved, valued, and knows they matter. We do this through…
- Biblical teachings at all of our weekend services & midweek programs like Awana
- Outrageously fun events throughout the year to connect KOTV Kids with new friends and adults who guide them into a closer relationship with Jesus.
- KOTV Cares projects show kids they can make a big difference in the world around them
- KOTV Kids! Crew volunteer opportunities where Kids Lead Kids and start using their unique gifts and talents to lead others
What to Expect in KOTV Classrooms
Leading kids to follow Jesus is at the heart of our ministry. We do this through age appropriate lessons, games and worship.
Children’s programming is offered for ages 3 months-5th Grade and is available at all services and campuses. Each month KOTV kids are introduced to a new theme of lessons that includes worship music, games and lessons.
Your child’s safety is a big deal to us which is why we require all of our volunteers to complete a yearly background check. Each child goes through our check-in process upon arrival, which ensures children are released to the appropriate adult. For added safety, all of our classrooms are locked from the outside, prohibiting anyone who is not approved from entering those areas.
KOTV Baptisms & Dedications
We want to celebrate your decision to raise your child to be a life-long follower of Jesus. We offer dedications to children ages birth-2 years, four times per year for parents who want to publicly declare their commitment to raising their child in a Christ-centered home. Child dedication class is required prior to dedication weekend. Get answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
