You are your child’s best influence!

If you are a parent, you have the awesome responsibility of taking a brand new baby who can do nothing for himself and raising that child to be a productive and hopefully, God-honoring adult. Does that seem a little overwhelming at times? Of course it does! But God has given you strategies in the Bible that can help you set your course. KidzWorld and NewSpring Church are here to help. We offer exciting environments every weekend that are designed to give kids a thirst for knowing God. Then we provide tools for parents (and grandparents or other caring adults) to use in reinforcing God’s principles. You can make the most of what your child learns in KidzWorld by taking advantage of the following:

  1. Monthly take-outs are either projects or assignments or sometimes just suggestions of how you can implement the weekend’s lessons. They are handed out as your child leaves KidzWorld usually on the first weekend of the month.
  2. The Parent Cue app is available for your mobile device for $1.99. It includes things to do during drive time, meal time, bedtime and hang time that will help you reinforce the teaching from the weekend. It has a setting for preschoolers and one for elementary age. It is a great way to catch up on what your child missed if you aren’t able to attend church. By the way, it even includes a parent time with great parenting information and tips.
  3. is a website that has some similar components to the Parent Cue app but is even more interactive. There is no cost for the site and it’s fun to use.

We have some other great ways to partner with parents including JumpStart, KidzWorld FX, Baby Dedication and much more. You can find out more about these events at

Exciting Days Ahead at NewSpring Church

Parents and students will get a chance to meet staff and volunteers and get a glimpse of the future of The Wire ministry as it looks forward to their new facility. Mark your calendar and don’t miss this event!

March ’15 – Patience


Hey KidzWorld kids and families! For the month of March, we’ll be learning all about the big idea of Patience – waiting until later for what you want now. Our memory verse for the month comes from Psalm 27:14 Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord! Our Bottom Lines for the first four weeks help us remember what to do when it’s hard to wait

When you think you can’t wait:

– think twice. (Week 1)
– think about what’s true. (Week 2)
– keep your cool. (Week 3)
– talk to God about it (Week 4)


During the last week of March, as we get ready for Easter, our final bottom line is: Remember that God’s plan is bigger than yours. We hope to see you in KidzWorld soon!

February ’15 – Kindness

Hey families! This month in KidzWorld we’re learning the Big Idea of Kindness – showing others they are valuable by how you treat them. Our goal is that, by the end of the month, your kids will understand kindness much better. The bottom lines for the month are: there’s always time to be kind, be kind to your family and friends, be kind to people who are overlooked, and be kind to people who aren’t kind to you. Our memory verse for the month comes from Luke 6:31 – Do to others as you want them to do to you. We hope to see you in KidzWorld soon!

January ’15 – Commitment

Happy New Year, Families! 2015 is here! In honor of the New Year, all month long we’ll be learning about the Big Idea of Commitment – making a plan and putting it into practice. We hope this Big Idea will help  your family stick to those New Year’s resolutions. But more importantly, we want to help grow your child’s relationship with God. We’ll be encouraging your kids to practice hearing God, praying to God, talking about God and living for God. Our memory verse for the month comes from 1 Timothy 4:8Training the body has some value. But being godly has value in every way. Be sure to visit NewSpring’s Facebook page to stay up to date on our weekly bottom lines. We hope to see you in KidzWorld soon!

KidzWorld FX Jingle Jam


This past Friday we had our annual KidzWorld FX Jingle Jam and it was a huge success. With over 1800 in attendance, this was our biggest KidzWorld FX to date. Those in attendance were treated to Christmas Carols from our children, fun games, a humorous retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and the baptism of 23 children.

Our Big Idea of this event was Generosity – making someone’s day by giving something away. As an exercise of this Big Idea, KidzWorld is participating in Project Generosity. You can grab a ornament from the Christmas Tree in the lobby and return the gift under the tree. Also, KidzWorld will be have a month long boys vs. girls contest to see who can donate the most diapers. Bring those diapers into the 252 Theater next time you visit.

Be sure to visit our Facebook page, to stay up to date with our Big Idea and weekly Bottom Lines. We hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas season and we’ll see you in KidzWorld soon!

December ’14 – Genorosity

Hey, KidzWorld Kids and families! The Big Idea for the month of December is Generosity – making someone’s day by giving something away. What an important topic to discuss during the Christmas season! Our memory verse for the month comes from 1 Timothy 6:18Be rich in good deeds… be generous and willing to share.  All month, we’ll be teaching your kids how important it is not to get “wrapped up” in our stuff and be thoughtful of others by giving things away. That’s a lesson we could all benefit from hearing. Be sure to visit NewSpring’s Facebook page to stay up to date on our weekly bottom lines. We hope to see you in KidzWorld soon!

November ’14 – Gratitude

Hey Kidzworld kids and families! All month in Kidzworld 252 we’ll be talking about Gratitude – letting others know you see how they’ve helped you. Our memory verse for the month comes from 1 Thessalonians 5:18. – Give thanks to God no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus. We’ll be teaching 5 different lessons with 5 different values of Gratitude. By the end of the month, we hope to help your kid understand value of taking a moment to say “Thank you.” We hope to see you and your kids in Kidzworld soon.
