Training Up The Next Generation

First Irving Kids

Kindergarten through 5th Grade is one of the most formative times in a child's life. And we want to help. The mission of this ministry is to partner with you, the parent, in your primary mission of discipling your child. We desire to reach, teach and equip your child in this influential season of life to "be strong and courageous" in the name of Christ, as commanded in Joshua 1:9. We aim to disciple them in Christ, train them to know the Word of God, and teach them to understand that God is there for them, loves them, strengthens them, and ultimately leads them. As Jesus makes clear in Matthew 19:14, we aim to usher them to His throne, "for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

The Biggest Story

On Sunday mornings at First Irving, we have chosen to implement The Biggest Story curriculum. There is nothing more important for the younger generation than imparting to them a rich vision of the gospel. God’s story is the most beautiful story ever told, full of wonder and amazing grace and this curriculum has been chosen because God is always oriented as the main character of each story that comprises the larger narrative of the Scripture.

But another purpose this curriculum is the ease for it to be partnered with the practice of family worship in the home. This can be done by walking through the Scripture or story directly from a Bible or for younger children, with the help of the Biggest Story Book Bible.

Kids Kits for Corporate Worship

Our Kid Kits are prepared with our younger children in mind. We know that for our youngest children it can be a challenge to sit patiently through the service. So we provide a few sheets to color and take their own notes as a helpful resource to help them focus during the sermon. One helpful way for parents to use them is to ask your children the three questions on the sermon notes before each service: Are you ready to sing, Are they ready to pray, and Are they ready to listen to God's Word?

Parent Resources

We know how hard this time of uncertainty in our world can be on the home and the family unit. It is our desire as your partner in Family discipleship to resource you as parents to lead your family well through this challenging season. Please know in addition to these resources we are faithfully praying for all the families within the body that is First Irving. We are here for you! Please know that you can contact us at any time.

Family Discipleship

We at First Irving want to partner with our parents. We believe that our time with your children each week is secondary to the Biblical teaching that takes place by parents at home. It is a privilege to get to pass on biblical lessons to your children here at church, but we know that God has given you an incredible calling as parents to teach your children the things of God, and train them up in the way they should go. Our hope then is to equip and provide you with the resources you need to be the spiritual leader for your child. Our kids team is here to help you every step of the way, and if you have any questions, want guidance, or are curious about our Family Discipleship Events, contact us!

New Believers Class

The decision to follow Christ is both simple and complex. It can be understood by the very young, and yet must be learned fully over a lifetime. If your child has recently made a decision to follow Christ, we in the Kids Ministry want to help him or her come to fully grasp the implications and truth of that commitment through our New Believers Class. This is a 5-week class offered multiple times throughout the year, and is a pre-requisite for Kids Baptism at our church. It is offered on an as-needed basis, so if your child has recently made the decision to follow Christ, let us know and we would be happy to lead them through the beginning of this amazing journey!
