TriCity Kids exists To Make Jesus Known to kids in the TriCity area.
There are 3 main ways we hope to do this:
Sunday Kids Classes
We have classes for kids from birth to Grade 5. They are split into age-appropriate groups and led by a fantastic team of security-screened volunteers who really love to connect with the kids.
Current Sunday Classes:
Nursery (Age 0 – 24mos)
Preschool (Age 2 – 5)
Gradeschool (K – Grade 5 // split into 2 groups during small group time)
We use Gospel Project curriculum, which is biblically sound and lots of fun. Our goal is to provide captivating and engaging lessons each week that lead the kids to know Jesus better through his Word.
When you arrive Sunday morning please head over to the Kids Check-In area – look for the red robot wall. There you will get a security tag for each child and be directed to the appropriate classroom. Classes open 10 minutes before each gathering, and we encourage you to pick up your children during the last worship set so you can experience some of the gathering together as a family.
This is a monthly Friday night kids program for kids Grades 1-5. We do games and activities and have a short talk from the Word of God. It’s a great way to spend a Friday night!

Biblical Parenting 103: Effective Discipline
Parents know the difficulty of providing effective discipline to their children. The Bible makes very clear that all parents are to discipline and instruct their children – for the good of the child and the good of the family, but to do so in a way that leads to heart change rather than hard heartedness is always a challenge.
This class seeks to combine the theological truths God gives us to discipline our children along with practical examples of how to do it well.
We will answer the questions:
- What does biblical discipline look like?
- How do we deal with persistent defiance?
- What should discipline change over the different stages of a child’s life?
- What is the ultimate goal of discipline from God’s POV
- What do you do when nothing seems to work?
Class Details: We will host this class at the same time as Kids Club. There will be childcare for those in Kids Club and a special class for preschoolers.
Date: April 20 (6pm-8pm)
Location: TriCity Church BuildingCost: The class is free, but we will have dinner together with the kids from 6pm – 6:30pm if you want to join in. (Cost $10)
