Welcome to Kidnation! During this time of social distancing we want to give you as many opportunities as we can to keep you connected with us. So even though we may not be able to meet all together, we are working to fill this page with tools and resources to help you engage with your kids. So look around and come back often. If you have any questions or need help in anyway, we'd love to help! Looking forward to being back together!

Stick with us!

In these challenging times, we want to be a help to parents as much we possibly can. We have a number of ways for you to engage with us while we are apart. Here is the low down on how to stick with us!

Sunday Services
Each Sunday we will post two service types on our home page. One is an "Adult" worship service and the other is a "Family" worship service. The Family worship service sets you up to help your kids through the Bible lesson for the day. The first part is a video which includes some fun kid friendly worship songs and an introduction of the lesson by a member of the Kidnation Team. Below that video are links to lesson resources both for preschool and elementary.

Wednesday Classes
On Wednesdays, kids have the opportunity to think more deeply about what they learned on Sunday, all with parents help of course! Each week we will email those lesson resources to you. It includes lesson videos as well as other lesson resources that take you step by step through how to help your kids think more deeply about the lesson. To subscribe to that weekly email, click here.

Social Media
As you look for constructive and helpful things to do with your kids at home, we post different ideas and resources multiple times a week across our different social media accounts. We also have a Kidnation Parents Facebook Group where parents share ideas and connections each day!

Helpful Parent and Kid Resources (Good stuff to do!)

We know now is rough for a lot of really serious reasons. But the struggle is also real with our kids. At this point we've about depleted Disney+ and seen Frozen 2 more times than we'd like. So here are some things we're using and reading and listening to at home that have been helpful. We're updating this often and would love to hear what you have found to be helpful.

Websites:

My Phil tv : Creator of the Veggie Tales, Phil Vischer brings us a new website with both familiar and new content
Gonoodle : This website could also double as your workout for the day. A favorite in schools
Go Minno : Kind of like a kid's christian Netflix
Pursue God Kids : Lots of different kinds of spiritual resources for kids and parents

Blogs:

The Parent Cue : A great blog resource for parents about culture. This article is particularly good for the pandemic
The Gospel Coalition : Invaluable resource for parents and Christians alike

Apps:

The Bible App : A really great interactive Bible app for kids
