Sunday Morning

The Brandywine Kids’ ministry meets on Sundays at 9:00am and 10:30am. Find available classes below for infants – 5th grade.

Our goal is that by the end of fifth grade, Brandywine Kids will: KNOW! Be introduced to Jesus Christ and will be given the opportunity to make a personal decision to follow Him. GROW! Demonstrate a personal relationship with God and apply biblical truths to life. GO! Understand the importance of experiencing God through worshiping and through serving. Be given the opportunity to worship and serve God on a regular basis.

Under 2 years

In Nursery Worship, your child will be lovingly cared for by incredible leaders who understand that little ones can experience the love of God through sweet moments of playful interaction, fun songs and simple Bible stories. Meaningful lessons each month are focused around three truths: God loves them, made them, and wants to be their forever friend.

Please note: Nursery kids should only bring the minimum of needed items in a small bag. Each item in the bag must be labeled. Diapers and wipes are provided in rooms. Children should not bring any personal toys or snacks in to the room with them.

2 years – Kindergartern

Preschoolers love to discover new things! That’s why we provide fun, interactive learning experiences in an engaging environment where your child can learn about Jesus. Classes are split by ages: two-year-olds (Blue Group), three-year-olds (Green Group), four-year-olds (Orange Group), and kindergarteners (purple group). At 9am the children are taught from the Bible in Life curriculum. At 10:30 children have play time at educational centers followed by a 20-minute Lil’K video (2-4 year olds) or a What’s in the Bible video (kindergarten). Check out our Preschool Videos archive!

1st – 5th Grade

Elementary children are ready to tackle deeper topics so our Sunday classes are designed to challenge them. At 9am the kids start all together for a time of worship (music) and a lesson from Brite curriculum. Then they break into grade-level groups to discuss the lesson in depth. At 10:30am kids join their parents in the sanctuary for the first part of the Worship Service. Prior to the start of the sermon, the kids are dismissed for Worship Training where they focus on why and how we worship God. Check out our Elementary Videos Archive!

Awana CLubs

3 yrs – 5th Grade

Awana is a fun club with the goal of making resilient disciples through learning God’s Word and building relationships. Awana Clubs provide an environment where kids can memorize and understand scripture, be encouraged by awesome leaders, and participate in large group lessons and engaging games and activities.
