KidSpring

KidSpring is a children’s ministry uniquely designed for kids, birth through fifth grade, to experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative way that kids can understand.​

What We've Learned

KidSpring is a place where kids learn about Jesus on their level.

Every Sunday, children experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way.

When kids leave KidSpring, we want them to be able to answer two questions: What did you learn? Did you have fun? In order to achieve that, we focus each week on a Need To Know, a short takeaway drawn out of Scripture that we teach throughout the KidSpring service.

Babies through fifth-grade children attend KidSpring during the adult worship service on Sundays. We are so passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand that we do not allow them into the service designed for adults and students sixth grade and older. We want to be a church that nurtures children and doesn’t hinder them. In KidSpring, we have age-appropriate environments that are safe, creative, and fun where kids can learn about Jesus on their level. Jesus said in Matthew 19:4, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”



When children enter a KidSpring environment, they spend time in activity stations where they build relationships with volunteers who love Jesus and love them. They get to do this while playing with the newest and most popular toys and games. After playing at activity stations, kids enter a large group service that includes worship songs and a skit acted out by volunteers who teach that day’s Need to Know and Bible story. Another part of the KidSpring experience includes small group time where children gather with a small group leader to spend time building relationships, reading a Bible story, playing games, and learning how to apply what they learned.



Every week when children come to KidSpring, they begin their experience at one of our check-in stations. Here, children receive a tag with their name, grade, and any other important information. The child’s parent or guardian also receives a tag that matches the three-digit, alpha-numeric code on the bottom of their child’s nametag. This check-in/check-out system ensures that each child who participates in our children’s ministry is released only to an authorized parent or guardian at the end of the service.



In case of emergency, we contact parents by flashing the child's last name and the three-digit, alpha-numeric code parents received at check-in on the screens in the service. This notifies parents that we need them without the distraction of a phone call. It also eliminates most of the possibility that they will miss the notification.



Yes! Spring Zone is our ministry designed to serve children and students with special needs. Located within KidSpring, Spring Zone provides children with an opportunity to learn about Jesus in a one-on-one setting or with the aid of a buddy who joins them in a regular KidSpring environment.



Spring Zone started with a need and a passion to see all families belong in the church. In the early years of NewSpring, a family began attending who had a son with autism. A volunteer saw that it would be beneficial for him to have a buddy, or shadow, while he was at church. He thrived with just a little bit of extra attention, and soon more and more families that had children with special needs began attending. We began to recruit more volunteers to serve as buddies, and Spring Zone was born!



Buddies are all about relationships. We try hard to pair the same volunteer with the same child or student each week. We also encourage those volunteers to cultivate relationships with the entire family. Spring Zone volunteers pair up with a Spring Zone child or student and participate in every part of the service with them, doing whatever it takes to bring Jesus to their level.



We want our Spring Zone children and students to have the best experience possible while they are at church. Most of our preschool and elementary children are mainstreamed into typical KidSpring environments where their buddies accompany them. Some students attend a portion of the main Sunday service or watch the live feed of the service while accompanied by a buddy. We also have self-contained Spring Zone environments to allow for a quieter, separate environment when needed.



We believe that saved people serve people, so we encourage all NewSpring attenders to take their next step in serving. KidSpring volunteers are men and women who are sixth grade or older and who love children and desire to see them learn about Jesus on their level. Our volunteers differ in age — some are parents, grandparents, singles, or students. Most KidSpring volunteers serve every week to help build relationships with the children they’re serving. We know that without volunteers KidSpring would not happen the way it does every week!
