More About Briarcliff Kids

PARTNERING WITH PARENTS TO MAKE DISCIPLES

The goal for Briarcliff KIDS is to provide opportunities for each child to personally discover the truths of God’s Word. We support parents in building up a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children leading them to love and follow Jesus. We believe that families are a gift from God. We are driven to meet our goal through the grace of God and the shared values of:

We believe the family is the primary learning community for children and provides the most comprehensive context to teach children a biblical perspective on life. It is our mission to encourage parents by providing a variety of resources and opportunities to have positive experiences as you disciple your child(ren).

The central focus of the Bible is Jesus and we desire our children to treasure Him above all else. We work to ensure our worship, activities and curriculum center on the person and work of Jesus Christ.

We believe children are a blessing. Our volunteers are trained to engage each child in meaningful learning experiences. Each volunteer desires to interact with the children and build strong relationships with them.

Learning about Jesus should be fun – creating excitement for each child to attend Briarcliff Kids. We intentionally create an environment in which kids are excited to tell their parents about their time in Briarcliff Kids.

VISITING BRIARCLIFF KIDS

Our Briarcliff Children’s Ministry meets at 9:00 am and 10:45 am each Sunday and drop-off begins 15 minutes prior. We provide a convenient check-in station before each service. On your first visit, you will fill out a visitor tag for each child upon arrival or preregister through the Plan a Vist link below. Both options provide the opportunity to share your phone number for emergency and security purposes.

When you are ready to be added to our system, we have a family registration form that you can fill out providing family contact information, as well as specifics about your child(ren).  You will then be able to use the self check-in stations.
