TeamKID

 

What is the purpose of TeamKID?
TeamKID is a fun, high-energy ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus Christ and
grow in a relationship with Him.
All parts of TeamKID-Bible stories, Scripture memory, life application, missions, and recreation-connect to teach life lessons to kids.

 

Why is the KID capitalized in TeamKID?   
The KID stands for Kids in Discipleship. Discipling children is the goal of TeamKID. Here at
First Baptist, we are in the business of making disciples of all ages!

What happens in a TeamKID meeting?
TeamKID is designed for children to do more than memorize Scripture. It helps children understand what the verses they memorize mean because all parts of the TeamKID meeting focus on one Bible message. The noncompetitive games, Bible story, memory verse, missions, refreshments, and conclusion all contribute to help children understand and apply God's Word
to their lives.


A TeamKID meeting has six parts with each one flowing into the next to keep the pace moving with non-stop energy:

WARM-UP is the opening activity that begins as soon as the first child arrives at TeamKID.

WORKOUT includes energized, interactive Bible study as children hear or experience a Bible story, learn the meaning of a Bible verse, apply Bible truths to their lives, sing, and pray.

REACH OUT uses either the missions DVD, missions activities, or mission action projects to teach children about missions around the world.

STRETCHING is when children work on learning the memory verse.

THE TOURNAMENT is a time to run, play, and laugh with fun games and activities that
reinforce the Bible study.

COOL DOWN is the final few minutes of the meeting and includes refreshments and a review
of what children have learned.

 

What is the recognition program?
TeamKID recognizes each child for attending the meetings, completing Bible-related work, and bringing friends with them. Because children earn stickers they can redeem for items in a TeamKID Store, accomplishments between children are not compared to one another as it would be if children earned patches or some other kind of visible reward.

 

 Is the gospel presented?

In the children's resources, TeamKID recognizes that children should have opportunities to hear the gospel and respond to it. Many of the meetings provide opportunities for coaches to share the plan of salvation and to answer questions that children might have.

 

What about Scripture memorization?
Scripture memorization is a very important part of TeamKID. Each week there will be a verse for the children to learn. In addition to learning the verse, they will learn what the verse means and how to apply the verse to their lives.
 

The TeamKID Club verses are Proverbs 3:5-6,
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall direct your paths..
