First Vilonia Kids

Birth - 5th Grade

At First Vilonia, kids are a HUGE priority!

We believe that kids are the future of the Church - and are a HUGE part of the Church today! We've made it our mission to do whatever it takes to reach, teach, and equip our kids to be all that God has called them to be! Our nursery, preschool, and elementary-aged kids have state-of-the-art facilities and a phenomenal team of volunteer and paid staff to help make sure your kids are safe, having fun, and learning to be more like Jesus!

Every Kid Matters to God!

HOP

Nursery Ministry

Nursery (Birth to 3 Years Old)

HOP (Helping Out Parents) is our state-of-the-art nursery where we provide a warm, caring environment for each child.  The nursery is open during every service.  Each nursery class includes a wide variety of playtime activities for each age group, as well as Bible lessons that correspond with the message in the Main Services.  You may register your child at the nursery welcome counter.

The spiritual development & safety of each child is of primary concern at First Vilonia!

 

Service Times

Our General Policies

HOP opens 15 minutes prior to each service/event.

Children are to be brought to the check-in counter by a parent/guardian and will only be released to the parent/guardian with a Parent Pick-Up Sticker.

Parents/Guardians should come for their children immediately following the service or event they have attended.

Please see that items belonging to your child are properly and clearly labeled. This should include:  diaper bag, diapers, plastic bottles/cups, pacifiers, drinking cups, and blankets.

Babies will be fed pre-measured formula, milk, or juice as provided only by the parent/guardian.  Toddlers will be provided with a snack and water.  Time and circumstances do not allow for any other type of feeding (including spoon-feeding infants).

We try everything in our abilities to calm an upset child for up to 15 minutes. After that, we will call the parent/guardian. That time frame can be catered for each family until the child feels comfortable staying in the nursery.

SKIP

Preschool Ministry

Preschool (3 to 5 Years Old)

SKIP (Starting Kids In Prayer) is our state-of-the-art preschool facility designed for children 3-5 years old (pre-kindergarten).  SKIP is open during every service.  SKIP offers exciting and innovative ways for your child to connect with God, friends, and loving volunteers.

Come check out our play area and play centers filled with fun toys and games. Your child will also enjoy activities like crafts, snacks, and praise & worship. Learning time is always an adventure in SKIP.  Fun characters, hands-on illustrations, and creative storytelling engage kids in the process of growing in God’s Word!

JUMP

Elementary-Aged Kids Ministry

JUMP (Jesus Understands Me Perfectly) is for elementary aged kids (Kindergarten through 5th Grade).  We have tons of fun and exciting activities for kids to be involved in!  All of our JUMP services and activities are in our state-of-the-art kids ministry area located upstairs off the Main Lobby.

Our kids’ services are designed for kids in Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Your kids will enjoy a power-packed hour filled with hilarious games, fantastic music, crazy characters, and powerful teaching from the Bible!  Each week our kids learn the exact same thing as the adults, but on an elementary-aged level, so that families can learn and grow together each week!

All of our campuses are learning the same lessons each week, so if your child has to miss JUMP, they can keep up with the series by watching SLAM at our main campus, First NLR, live or on demand at slamkids.tv!
