Youth America Kids
Youth America Kids is about bringing the truth of God's Word into the hearts and minds of kids in a fun and understandable way. You can expect your kids to grow spiritually and have fun in the process. We value every moment we get to share Biblical truths, ignite imaginations and help create great friendships, no matter what age.
YA Kids is a place where children are protected and cared for by loving volunteers who are trained to create environments and experiences where parents can freely and confidently leave children; a place where children feel happy to participate in all program activities with other children and leaders. Only pre-authorized, background-checked volunteers and family members that are accompanying a child are allowed into the YA Kids area.
Central to our method of teaching children about the truth and love of God is that children play to learn. Our hope is that everything we do in YA Kids is safe, fun and Jesus-centered!
God made me.
God loves me.
Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
The Word is my light: I can make the right choice.
God is my friend: I can trust Him no matter what.
Jesus loves me: I can love others the way He has loved me.
