On this page you will find links and resources to all of the content material needed to lead the XRDS Kids program. Also helpful links to our policies, procedures and resource requests. In the future we hope to add additional training material to help you serve better.
Vision and Values
We believe that kids are not only the church of tomorrow, but also the church of today. We believe they should be a valued and integral part of our church. As part of XRDS we want XRDS kids to be a part of what we are doing as a church, one church with one unified vision.
Our vision for XRDS Kids is to partner with families to see kids encounter Jesus, embrace one another and engage the world in age appropriate ways. All this to prepare and equip them for life as they grow in age and maturity within our faith community.
You can read our extended vision and values here.
