the Fields: a church without walls

Children's Ministry

At The Fields, we believe families have the primary responsibility to train their children in the gospel and following Jesus. Our Children’s Ministry team is here to support and equip families to succeed in doing just that. We do this be encouraging our families to spend time in the Bible together and to utilize the devotionals that correspond to the lessons the children are taught each Sunday by our loving, capable teachers.

Gospel Story for Kids

In class on Sunday mornings, The Fields Children’s Ministry uses the Gospel Story for Kids, a three-year track that helps ground our children in the gospel from all of scripture. Children who begin this track at the age of three will learn and engage the gospel from Genesis to Revelation a total of three times (each time with increasing depth) by completion of the 5th grade. At each age level, children are taught the gospel through age-appropriate illustrations, activities, coloring pages, object lessons, and memorization, The corresponding devotionals Long Story Short: Ten-Minute Devotionals to Draw Your Family to God (OT) and Old Story New: Ten-Minute Devotionals to Draw Your Family to God (NT) help you to go even deeper with your children during the week. The whole package is designed to help children come to know, love and follow Jesus!
