Welcome to KidsTown, a little city where kids can play and learn and fool around. We gather here on Sundays during The Open Door (10:30 to 11:30) and explore stories and themes from the Bible, getting to know one another and Jesus a little more as we do so. We all gather in the Children’s Chapel for some prayer time, and then infants and toddlers play in the Eden Garden while kids ages 4 to 8 and 9 to 12 get busy in the Noah’s Ark and Galaxy Rooms. We hope you can join us!

Everyone Can Play

Tune: Salem
Words: Laura Peetoom

When mothers of Salem
brought all their kids to Jesus,
the stern disciples shooed them back
and told them “Go away!”
But Jesus laughed and shook his head,
and to his grown-up friends he said,
“Let the little children come and play with me!

“For I want to hug them
and hear them tell their stories;
I want to know what’s in their hearts
and what they’ll do today.
See, in my Father’s kingdom
you are all just like these children.
In our Father’s kingdom,
everyone can play!”
