Why Selah offers intentional kids programs…

The goal of Selah is to build into the lives of women so they become the moms that God has created them to be. (You can read a bit about that and a testimony here.) At the same time we also want to take advantage of the time we have with these moms’ kids in order to deepen their spiritual roots. So our volunteers work hard to plan stations and activities that will plant many God seeds, teach the kids to build relationships with adults and peers, prepare them for life of learning, and develop their character.

In the nursery we want to help the kids get comfortable at church and teach them about God through simple songs and stories.

In Moms and Tots our focus is to increase the kids’ attention spans and guide them in learning to listen to an adult other than their mom. We do this while playing games, singing, telling stories and doing crafts.

In our Explorers and Ready-Set-Kindergarten programs we are working alongside the moms to prep the kids for school. The morning is structured in 20 minute stations: alphabet learning, science, fitness, Bible time and music.

In our elementary groups our focus is relational leadership. We aim to help the kids learn how to connect with various ages of kids and build their confidence through group activities. On Tuesdays the kids get to participate in various team based stations (ex. sports, engineering, and writing) and they will have opportunities to try serving within Selah. On Thursdays the kids can be part of our kids choir and drama as evangelistic tools and confidence boosters.
