CITY LIFE CHURCH
Jesus loves the little children! They are precious in His sight. Let’s bring them to Him!
Children are a blessed legacy, responsibility, and hope. Our time, love, and care are well-invested in them. Let’s come alongside each other to raise them together as a community!
In Kid City, children (babies through 5th grade) learn about Jesus… the one who loves them and has big plans for their lives. Their imaginations are shaped by God’s Word. Kids develop healthy relationships with each other and the adults that serve on the Kid City team.
We meet during both the 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. services on Sunday morning.
We are excited to announce our Family Outreach Coordinator – Hayley Strickland. She has experience both in an admin role in Kid City in the past as well as in Community and Family health in local schools. We will be offering a few tools this year to help us engage with each other, our kiddos, and City Life’s Vision.

WHAT WE’RE TEACHING
FEBRUARY AT KID CITY
WOW: A 4-Week Series from the Gospels on Jesus’ Miracles.
Whether it’s a rocket car powered by soda and mints or a tornado in a water bottle, there’s so much in our world that can fill us with awe. The world of STEM is full of things that look like little miracles, but they’re nothing compared to the miracles God can perform. In this four-week series, kids will take a look at some of the miracles that Jesus performed during his ministry. Through stories showing the power of Jesus, they’ll no doubt go, Wow! Jesus has the power to heal, to calm our fears, to provide, and to save.
RESOURCE OF THE MONTH
MAKE ROOM: A Child’s Guide to Lent and Easter
Advent is all about excitement and good times, but Lent can be tough for kids to understand. So, how can we help them make sense of it? “Make Room” has some great ideas for making Lent special by creating space for God and tying it all back to Jesus.
