At the church I work at we have k-6th grade in our children's service. Because that is such a large age gap we are wanting to split the age groups up, K-3 and 4-6. We are just unsure how to go…Continue
"I use the seeker pager system and it's been quite the headache. I just came to my church about 4 months ago and these lovely pagers have given me trouble ever since. I would love to move to using cell phones, but the parents in my…"

"Anne, I would also love to see what you guys use! We are trying to launch something similar to this at my church too! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you so much for your willingness to share!"
We split our kids church on Sunday mornings. We have a service for K-2nd grade and then 3rd-5th grade. We use the same themes for the week, but we have completely different service schedules.
It's nice for us to be able to target…"
"We have the same age range of kids - they all start in worship and are dismissed to classes after a Children's Time with the pastor in the service. The 3 year olds - 3rd grade gather for large group time together but we dismiss the 3…"
"What we currently do is be together for games, singing, the bible story, then have small groups k-1, 2-3, 4-6 and it seems to be helping but we feel like we are losing the younger kids during the bible story/message time or that the older kids are…"
"It may depend on your environment. Do you have multiple spaces to do a large group time or children's service? Multiple services? We have done it several ways since I've been here. I can list some. Right now…"
"I do the same as Dylan.
I have, in the past, split after singing for separate messages...and I liked it, too.
Due to space constraints, we had to combine and never separated.
For me, it has to do with the physical space limitations and number of…"
What we are doing and finding effective is that we have service time together for all ages (Ages 2 - Grade 6, as with Bruce our Grade 6's are involved with serving but will also attend on non rostered weeks) so all ages come…"
"I believe that kids are most comfortable with their peers, so I try and keep things as narrow as possible. Of course, you'll need to take into consideration the amount of kids, amount of volunteers, your curriculum, and your physical space. Our…"
"When I had a kds church with 1st - 6th grade, I used the 6th graders as Junior helpers and train them to moniter the kids, perform skits, puppets, and lead a child to Christ.
I now serve in a church where we have two services and I have a different…"
At the church I work at we have k-6th grade in our children's service. Because that is such a large age gap we are wanting to split the age groups up, K-3 and 4-6. We are just unsure how to go about this. Should we do an entirely different service for each group, or just split when we are going to do the message time. Any tips or ideas on how to go about doing this would be greatly appreciated. See More

Other Things About Me:
I love the sun and the warm, so it's pretty ironic that I'm in North Dakota for college. I will be graduating May 6th, 2011 and entering the real world... I'm trusting that God knows where I'll be because I haven't a clue! I'm a driven and hard-working. I strive for excellence in my everyday life! I want to truly honor God and I believe that I can only truly bring Him honor by giving Him my all! I'm also fun-loving and easy going. I also love playing with play-doh, coloring and anything polka dotted!
