Partnering With Parents
- Develop children as Christ-followers and teach them to share their faith
- Develop children as worshipers
- Develop children as prayer warriors
- Teach children to make wise choices according to Scripture
- Support families with fun, creative ways to enhance each child’s spiritual journey
The Vale desires to partner with families to teach their children about the love of Christ! Our prayer is that God would bring each child to the knowledge of salvation and that they begin their relationship with Jesus!

Kingdom Kids Preschool (Tues/Wed/Thurs)
Kingdom Kids Preschool and Kindergarten is a weekday ministry of The Vale. Our objective is to provide a safe, Christian environment in which your child can develop spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially.
Children with special needs are gladly welcomed at The Vale Kids. Children with mild needs may be mainstreamed into their appropriate class. Children with greater needs may visit our Friends Ministry staffed by special needs professionals.
Look for a volunteer at The Vale Kids Welcome Desk in the Children’s Ministry Building to get you started and escort you and your child to their starting point. The check–in process is quick and easy and will help us keep your child safe and happy while you are attending an adult study or worship service.
“Dkids” begins at 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM and is a comprehensive foundations program for kids highlighting the essential passages of scripture every disciple should know. “Dkids” follows the H.E.A.R. method. The acronym H.E.A.R stands for Highlight, Explain, Apply, and Respond. Each of these four steps contributes to creating an atmosphere to hear God speak:
HEAR: Kids will study God’s Word and memorize a verse.
EXPLAIN: Kids will read an explanation of the verses.
APPLICATION: Kids will work an activity to help them apply the Bible truth.
RESPOND: Kids will have the opportunity to respond in prayer
Each child will register online and pay a $15 fee for their personal ‘Foundations for Kids” book.
Upon checking in your child, you will receive a matching tag to use to pick your child up after service. Any special instructions needed to keep your child safe and happy will be noted as well. The Vale Kids Ministry employs a policeman who remains in The Vale Kids reception area for all services. The children love to greet him each morning!
“I’m a Christian Now” class will be held on September 16th, 10 AM-12 PM in the Children’s Building.
