What can you do as a parent (or grandparent or other caring adult) to make your children’s church experience the best hour of their week? At NewSpring, we spend our whole week preparing for the weekend experience. We look for fun and innovative ways to share God’s Word in a way that children can grasp and apply to their own lives. We recruit and train volunteers who desire to spend time getting to know your children and helping them see God’s love. We have even created some exciting environments that have been known to make kids ask, “Are you sure this is a church?”
With all that we do to engage your children, you still have the most important part in the equation. You have to bring them! It can be challenging to get everyone up on a Sunday morning or get everyone cleaned up after a full Saturday of recreation, but it’s always worth it to spend time with others who love Jesus.
In KidzWorld, we have made the extra effort to make church convenient for you. Our environments for kids from birth through 4th grade are open during all 5 weekend services AND the environments actually open a full 30 minutes before the service begins! That gives you time to check-in, get something from the coffee shop and get a hug from your kiddos before drop-off. It helps everyone in the family be in the right frame of mind to worship our Creator. So, just plan to leave the house a few minutes early this weekend and make your church experience the best hour of your week!
We are having a great time at camp! For more updates and photos check out our Facebook page. www.facebook.com/kidzworldns

Hey KidzWorld kids and families!
For the month of May in Route 252 (1st-4th grades), we are learning all about the Big Idea of Honesty – choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do. Our Bottom Lines for the month are:
- Being truthful helps you stay out of trouble.
- When you’re not truthful, you can hurt the people you care about.
- When you’re not truthful, you lose trust.
- When you lie to help yourself, you hurt yourself instead.
- Being truthful with God keeps you close to Him.
Our memory verse for the month comes from Psalm 119:29 – Keep me from cheating and tellings lies. Be kind and teach me your laws.
If your child is in Baby Bay (0-24 months) or Adventure Avenue (2 yrs-Kdg), we started a new curriculum called First Look. It’s produced by the same company that produces our elementary curriculum but it’s designed specifically for the younger kids. This month in Baby Bay and Adventure Avenue your children will be part of the Happy Helpers Club as they learn to answer the following question:
- Who can help others?
- I can help others.
Memory verse: “Be kind and loving to each other.” Ephesians 4:32, NCV
Hey KidzWorld kids and families, this past weekend we celebrated the most important event in history, Easter! Kids heard the story of Jesus’s sacrifice and what it means for our salvation. We encouraged them to remember that God made peace with us through Jesus. Also, we had a blast with our usual worship and fun games and we even gave away some cool prizes. We had an amazing time this weekend, and we hope to see you in KidzWorld’s Route 252 in the future.
