What Happens at Discovery Land?
Discover Time: This is where the lesson comes to life through a hands-on experience. Kids will not only walk away with the truth of God’s Word, they will EXPERIENCE it!. Kids rotate through different stations including sand, water, building blocks, chalk wall, missions, cooking, play dough, and art.
Bible Lesson: Children will dig into the Word of God and learn to apply the truths to their lives. The lesson is taught with creative elements that will help children remember the lesson for a lifetime.
Tracker Tunes: Tracker Tunes is offered during education hour. Elementary children will do fun review games and worship God through music and instruments. Children perform a song once per month during the worship service.
Discovery Land Kids Club is for children ages 3 through 5th grade. Club runs from September through April on Wednesday nights from 5:30-6:45 pm. At club, kids continue learning Discovery Land lessons.
During club, Kids also learn different life skills. Skills include orienteering, outdoor sports, theater, nature, gardening, drawing, and more! Kids earn badges for the skills they learn in club.
All Discovery Land students must be picked up by an adult in their classrooms. We screen and do background checks on all children’s ministry staff and volunteers for your child’s protection.
