Kid Ministry in a School: Part 2-Small Groups

So far we’ve looked at the Check In and Pick Up Process that Grace Community Church uses in Cross Street, our K-5th Ministry. This time we will look at how we run our Small Groups.

We set up Small Group in the hallways of our school. Cross Street tries to stay out of classrooms as much as possible. Each area is separated by partitions, which are easy to set up.

Our kids sit on round rugs that can fit about 5 kids per rug. Each Small Group area has a table, rugs, and totes with all the supplies our leaders will need for the day.

1. We spend 5 minutes at the beginning of the service playing games, talking about the virtue and memory verse, and/or simply talking about our week.

2. After that, we all go to Large Group to worship and hear an awesome BIBLE STORY!!! WOO-HOO!!!

3. Lastly, kids head back to their small groups and carry out activities that directly relate to the story that was heard in Large Group.

4. When parents come to pick up their kids, group leaders hand them Cards that will help them know what we’ve covered for that day & provides descriptions for games to play and discussion points to talk about over dinner or in the car throughout the week.

For a look at the curriculum we use, go to:
