Cicero Site Kids
Fun. We believe kids should have it and that they learn so much more when it’s there! This is why, here in the Kid’s Zone, we use high energy games and activities to engage children and teach them about Jesus. We want to eliminate any misconceptions that a relationship with God is stuffy or judgmental, but that in fact it can be fun and the best adventure of their lifetime. We love kids and encourage them to “Come as they are and be loved” and build a foundation in their life that helps them go UP (Build connection with Jesus), AROUND (Develop meaningful relationships), and OUT (Find their gifts and passions and be empowered to serve other).Come check us out!
There may be times when a child has a hard time staying in an unfamiliar room. We want parents to always feel welcome to stay with their child, at any age, to help and reassure them. In time, not only will your child love their new room, you’ll have the reassurance that your child is secure in their new environment.
We provide age-appropriate rooms with curriculums designed for each age group. Rooms are well-lit, spacious for all kinds of activities and crafts, and filled with toys that spark their developing imagination.
We value your child and his/her safety. Any volunteer with Kid’s Zone must attended The Vineyard Church (we want to know them) and they are screened with a background check. No volunteer who refuses a background check will be allowed to serve in the Kid’s Zone.
Early Childhood Ministries (Infant/Toddler Nurseries)
In early childhood, we create a loving, quiet, and calming environment for our little ones to discover and explore. We love getting to know each of them, seeing what captures their attention, and watching them make new friends. It’s also in this place where we use a simple curriculum that equips parents and volunteers to pray specific blessings over each child, explore who God is, and try things out for the first time.
Preschool and Kindergarden Ministries
This class is designed for children ages 3 thru 5 who are potty trained . With this group, we help children to discover, learn, and understand basic concepts about God’s truth and Jesus’ love. We do this with signing, creative bible stories, and fun activities. We offer kids some free playtime to help them learn to interact with each other.

A dedication is simply a time when you as a family bring your child before God and the church and publicly dedicate him or her to Jesus. In a sense you are saying, “I give back to You what You have given to us. We promise to try to raise this child Your way. We ask for Your help.” Baby dedications are done immediately following the announcements during the service, we invite your family and any other individuals you would like to include to come forward with the child. At that point the pastor will explain the importance and significance of baby dedications, then pray over you and your family, with the congregation in agreement to support you as you take this step of faith. If you are interested in this, please call the church office or indicate your interest on your connection card and we will mail you a form to complete to help us assist in planning this special event with you.
