Kids & Families at West
At Vintage Church we believe children are a gift from God, and it is our joy to partner with you as you raise your kids to know and love the gospel. We believe family worship is a beautiful picture for our children of what it looks like to walk in faith in Jesus. Family worship doesn’t have to be daunting; it stands on 3 main pillars of singing, reading, and praying as a family. We know that being a parent is a dance between exhaustion and a never-ending pile of laundry while also pouring your heart into your family that you love more than you can explain. Join with us as we walk together. Look through our resources and begin to create a familiar rhythm within your house. These resources are not created as a checklist you must utilize in order. They are created as a supplement to help guide and enhance your time at home with your children, whatever age and understanding. The most important piece of family worship is the time you spend modeling, sharing, talking, repenting, and learning with your children. Will it be messy? You bet. Will there be days you don’t have the answers. Plan on it. Will you learn as much as your children? Probably so. Take the first step in your home and see how much the Lord grows you and your family. We can’t wait to take this journey with you.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)

Let's learn about jesus together.
Walking with Jesus
During this series, we will be talking in our kids classrooms about how John, a follower of Jesus, had a simple message: Believe, Obey, Love. It is important when talking to children that they don’t walk away with a list of to-dos, and it would be easy to do that when we read what we are supposed to do as we obey. Join us as we sit in verses that call us to obedience, but return to the root of our obedience and our love for others. This action comes from understanding who God is and a deep love for God and what he did for us. Until our children know the love of their Good father, they can’t be expected to act in obedience and love for others.
