What is Promotion Sunday?

Promotion Sunday is the day of the year when all children and students move up to the next grade level in Children’s Ministry or Next Gen Ministry.

Why is Promotion Sunday so important?

This day gives families the opportunity to make changes to their Sunday morning church routine—switching the worship service they attend or the hour they attend Life Group—if necessary to complement their child’s new Life Group time. Promotion Sunday is also a great day for adults to visit a group if they are not already in one.

What is the typical routine for children in Pre-K–3rd grade?

Kids in this age group can be part of Life Group during one worship service and attend KidVue Worship during the other service. Younger pre-schoolers (babies – age 3) can attend during two hours (8:00 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. or 9:15 a.m. an 11:00 a.m.). They will be assigned to the same classroom for both hours.

What is the typical routine for students in 4th grade and up?

Students who are in 4th grade or older attend worship service with their parents or guardians. At another hour they will attend Life Group with their respective student ministries (4th+5th Grade Ministry, Middle School Ministry, or High School Ministry). If the student goes to the 9:15 a.m. worship service then he/she goes to their ministry at 8:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. If the student attends the 11:00 a.m. worship service then he/she goes to their ministry at 9:15 a.m.

What if my student does not want to change their Sunday morning routine due to familiarity with their teacher or friends?

You can switch the worship service you attend so your student can attend worship service with you when they are not in Life Group.
