Kids at TFH

At TFH our Children’s Ministry is much more than “childcare”.

We intentionally structure our children’s ministry to help children learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers and staff who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids.

Our children’s ministry is broken up into the following ages:

The Baby Place
Vacaville
Ages 6 months – 14 months
Ages 15 months - 23 months
Age 2 years
Napa & East Bay
Ages 6 months – 2 ½ years
Lil’ Kids Church
Vacaville

Napa & East Bay
Ages 2 ½ – 5
Kid’s Church
Grades 1 – 4 in Vacaville
Grades K - 6 in Napa & East Bay
Engage (Vacaville & Napa)

Should you ever have any questions, any our Kids Ministry staff or volunteers will be happy to help you! Also, if you have any questions about TFH Kids before attending a service, you can always contact any of the staff or pastors to find answers to those questions.

Engage

Grades 5-6 (Vacaville & Napa only)

Engage is a ministry designed for 5th- and 6th- graders. The main verse and theme for Engage is found in Mark 12:30-31. We want the kids to love God, and love people. In Vacaville, the kids meet in the main Sanctuary for worship during our weekend services, then go to their classroom, located in the main Church Building. You can pick them up there after service. In Napa, Engage is on Wednesdays at 7:00pm in the Kids Room (Encounter for Jr & Sr High meets in main auditorium at the same time).

Kids Church

Grades 1-4 (Vacaville)
K-6 (Napa & East Bay)

Kids Church is more than childcare, it's our opportunity to invest in the hearts and lives of children. At The Father's Kids services you will find kids having a blast worshiping God and learning His way, His word and His will for their lives using a method that is relevant to their lifestyle. Parents regularly tell us their child can't wait to get to church because it's so much fun. Each child is valued and treated as God's very own. We believe each child has a God-given call and purpose on their lives. It is our passion to discover that call and purpose, and then launch them into all they were created to be.

Your kids will enjoy a safe, relevant, inspiring program that's tailored just for them while you enjoy the main service. We offer interactive and dynamic classes for all ages, from newborn through elementary school. Our staff and volunteers are professional and energetic, and they love spending time with your kids. We're committed to making your child's time at Kids Church the highlight of their week.

In addition to our weekend experiences, The Father's House has events throughout the year, including summer camps and special fun programs, just for kids.

Lil' Kids Church

Ages 3-5 in Vacaville,

A place of worship for your preschooler

Lil' Kids Church is specifically designed for kids aged 2-1/2 years through 4 years. Ministering to each child as an individual in a safe atmosphere we strive to have each child come to know who Jesus is; as their God, the Creator and their Forever Friend and who they are in His calling on their lives. Children with all learning styles come learn and experience the Biblical principal and concepts using large group worship time and center based (small group) teaching. We have the following centers:

  • A craft center where children can use their creative talents to highlight the Bible lesson.
  • A block center where the Bible lesson can be reinforced through games, exploration, and sharing skills.
  • An exploration center where they can discover more about the incredible world God created.
  • A home center where children can learn to relate to one another.
  • The reading center where books can be read and have discussion about the Bible lesson.
  • The snack center where we prefer to make it more interesting and part of their learning experience (we don't just serve Goldfish crackers here) when they make their snack and receive the biblical lesson of the day.

In Vacaville we also have an open-air Lil' Kids Church where the kids will worship and receive a Bible lesson with a snack in our playground classroom. This is to accommodate all of our busy movers. Lil' Kids Church is a place where kids look forward to coming every week. Hope to see you soon!

Baby Place

Ages 6 months - 35 months in Vacaville,
6 months – 2 ½ years in Napa & East Bay

The Baby Place is a place where the very youngest of our church family are being ministered to by our very own loving families. The Baby Place at TFH is a place where the babies are cared for in a safe environment, a loving place to play, learn, and experience Jesus' love. We are here helping lay a firm foundation of faith in the lives of babies and toddlers by reading simple Bible stories as they eat a snack and hold toys that go along with the Bible story. We use Cradle Choir curriculum, as well as our very own curriculum, written just for babies. We sing simple worship songs and pray for each child that attends a service in The Baby Place. The Baby Place is a co-op nursery. A family that utilizes the services of the Baby Place is a part of the co-op. Each family is there to bless other families by serving one another. There are also many other volunteer caregivers who love babies and want to minister to them out of the abundance of love God has given them for babies. We keep the caregiver-to-baby ratio very low at 1:3, so each child gets a lot of attention and love. We also do background checks on everyone that serves in this ministry. Keeping children safe is a high priority. It is a happy place to serve and have families grow closer together.

Additional info for Vacaville only - Diaper changes now happen in the "Baby Place" room by a certified TFH staff female employee.
- This is due to the amount of time it would take to leave the adult service and go to the kids building, and our desire to create a distraction-free environment in our adult worship services.
- We'll change any baby/toddler that comes in a diaper. If a potty-trained child has an accident, we'll page the parent to come assist them in the classroom.
- You may request that your child only be changed by yourself or family member. Just let the Baby Place Coordinator know at drop-off.
