What is KidzWorld FX? FX is a Family Experience that is filled with fun, laughter, and learning about God’s Big Ideas. We will also celebrate KidzWorld Watermark baptism.
When does FX happen? Our next KidzWorld FX is this Friday, August 21 at 7 p.m. in the NewSpring South Auditorium.
Who can come to FX? Everyone is invited to come to FX! Sometimes people come and they don’t even have kids with them! We just want to share a good time and learn about the Bible in a fun way.
How long is the program? FX typically lasts a little over an hour. We do have childcare available for children age 2 and younger.
How much does FX cost and do I need to sign up ahead of time? FX is completely FREE and there is no need to sign up–just show up!
What is your policy for this event in response to COVID19? The information about our policy for all on campus events can be found at newspring.org/update.
What if I am not ready or unable to attend in person? No problem! We have always live-streamed our FX events and we will be doing that this time as well. The time of the event is 7 p.m. CDT.
This weekend, August 15/16 is the weekend when kids who are in kindergarten through 12 grade will promote into the environment for their fall grade level. This year at NewSpring, we have a couple of big changes that we are implementing to make our time with kids and students even more intentional.
Studio 45 is a new environment designed specifically for 4th and 5th graders. It will give us the opportunity to focus on the life stage of older elementary kids as they prepare to enter their teen years. We are creating a brand new room dedicated to this age group which we expect to have open in early October.
Our preschool ministries of Baby Bay and Adventure Avenue will also experience a change. Beginning with this promotion, children age 2-4 will no longer promote on their birthday. Instead, they will be able to stay in the same environment for a whole year with the same small group leader and kids. We know that this will help the kids form some great bonds with the leaders and the other kids in their small group. Each small group is assigned an animal name and those groups of kids will be able to stay together throughout their time in Adventure Avenue.
We have outlined these changes and the details you need to know for your child on our website at newspring.org/promotionweekend.
Did you ever think about how hard it must have been for Noah and his family to be cooped up in the ark for so many days? Thankfully, they trusted God through the storm and we can trust God too. Join us each day on Noah’s Window For Kids to find ways that we can trust God. Artie, Digger, and your friends from KidzWorld want to see you there. And Professor Knows-A-Lot will have some fun crafts and experiments for you to try at home!
There is some encouragement for your parents too: noahswindow.org
We make lots of decisions in life–some small and insignificant like where we will eat tonight and some large and incredibly significant like who will I marry. But the most important decision anyone will ever make is what will I do with Jesus? A relationship with Jesus changes life in a way that no other decision can. It brings peace and joy. It settles the matter of where we spend eternity. And it’s a decision that can be made by a young person. That’s why we offer JumpStart for elementary age students and their parents. JumpStart is a 30 minute session that describes God’s amazing plan of salvation–the two things He has done and the two things we can do to be part of His family. If your child is asking questions or you just want to get that conversation started, attend a JumpStart session. The next one is happening Sunday, August 4 at 10:35 a.m. (between the morning services). Don’t let that most important question go unanswered by your child.
We just got back from summer camps for our elementary, middle, and high school students. Now we have something amazing planned for the younger kids to do this summer. This Preschool FX event is for 3-year-olds through 1st graders and their families. Don’t miss it!
Here at NewSpring, we just experienced a little snow activity–it was coming down pretty hard for about 15 minutes. But winter can’t last forever and we are looking forward to summer and the NewSpring camps. We will offer 3 camps for kids from grades 2-12 this summer. Find out more about the camps and how to register your student at newspring.org/summercamp.
It’s a brand new year and we have some great events on the calendar for all ages and interests. Find out more about any of them by clicking the links.

On the weekend of December 8/9 and 15/16, KidzWorld will be participating in Project Generosity by visiting the KidzWorld Project Generosity Store. Kids have earned points over the fall for attendance, saying memory verses, bringing guests, etc. Those points can be used to buy items in the KidzWorld Project Generosity Store that will then be donated to local and world-wide ministries. The KidzWorld Project Generosity Store is supported by the missions giving of NewSpringers and you can take a tour of the store this weekend or next between services in Studio 45.
