With all the things we wrestle with in life, we believe the one question that keeps most parents up at night is: are my kids going to turn out okay? That’s why we as a community have decided to make it a priority of ours to provide a place where we can assist parents in instilling character, values, and faith in our most precious resource: our children.
At Mountain West we value kids and feel it is our job to engage them using interactive and creative methods in a safe environment where they can learn and grow. Boomerang Kids allows children the chance to connect with one another and, most importantly, to connect with Jesus. We believe that every child, no matter how young, can learn! That is why even our youngest babies are taught a lesson each week about the love of Jesus.
We offer environments for kids from Nursery through 5th Grade and all of our Mountain West staff and volunteers have undergone a thorough background check to ensure your child's safety.
Our fabulous nursery is for children birth through ‘still in diapers’. We don't just provide child care for the parents who attend church, but offer the kids a fun and meaningful experience. Our nursery is located just down the hall from our auditorium. You will be asked to sign your child in and will receive a paging device just in case we need you.
All our potty-trained pre-schoolers up through our 5th graders meet in the gym, right next door to our main building. You will be asked to sign-in and register your child. You and your child will receive a nametag, one for your child to wear, the other for you to keep with you. When you return, we will match the tags to ensure the safety of all our kids.
In two separate environments (one for pre-school and one for elementary) we use music, storytelling, and both large and small groups so kids have an awesome, fun filled time and build quality friendships with adult leaders and other kids. Our teaching is based on 36 character virtues and 4 basic truths that build character and faith in Jesus Christ to prepare them for their teenage years.
The 4 basic truths are:
Faith - I need to decide what I believe about Jesus
Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice
Trust - I can trust God no matter what
Friendship - I should treat others the way I want to be treated
We hope parents will partner with us at home to teach these 4 basic truths because "what happens at home is more important than what happens at church". Let us know how we can help you with the most important and rewarding (although sometimes stressful) job in the world – raising your children.
We do offer child dedications during our worship services throughout the year. Dedications are scheduled on the 4th Sunday of each month. For more information about this process, contact the church office at 770.491.0228 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
