From passionate and engaged Children’s Ministry teams to life-giving environments, our goal is to capture the hearts of children and point them toward Jesus. Ministry to children is one of the highest priorities at Victory. Our vision for VicKids is where Church and home equip kids to become fully committed disciples of Jesus.
If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God! Dwight L. Moody, evangelistDwight L. Moody, evangelist
We know that love, over time, is what matters most. Our time with your children is precious and important and we make the most of it while they’re under our roof. From the time a child is born until they reach their 18th birthday, you have about 936 weeks with them – what we do with that time really matters.
Part of how we make the most of our time with your children is partnership with you.
First Time to Victory
The first time you visit a new church environment can be intimidating. It’s our goal to help make your first visit as smooth as possible. Please plan to arrive 15 – 20 minutes early. This gives our team time to check your children in and show you their appropriate classrooms. We would love the extra time to get to know you and your children.
A place for everyone
Our nursery ministry is a soothing and safe environment for babies 0 to 23 months old. Our Nursery team works to help both you and your babies feel confident and comfortable. Our time with your baby is spent interacting through play, praise and worship and fun. Nursery Ministry is offered at all regular service times in our Main Building – East Wing.
Nursing Moms – we provide a cozy room in the Nursery wing and to the left of the Chapel that allows you to stay connected to the service through live video, while comfortably and privately nursing your baby.
First Look – Our Keys to Unlocking Your Child’s Heart
As your child grows, one of our goals is to ensure that your child learns these 3 basic truths:
- God made me
- God loves me
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever
A fun and inviting environment for toddlers 2 – Pre-K. Our Preschool Ministry team is dedicated to teaching your child the foundational truths about God using play, stories, crafts, games, worship and more. There’s nothing more precious than little hearts understanding the love of Jesus and learning to express their love in return.
Preschool Ministry is available at all regular service times in our Main Building. 2-3 year olds are located in the west wing hall, with 4-5 year olds in the elementary wing.
Our First Look curriculum gives all preschoolers a first impression of their loving heavenly Father.
Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple but powerful truths:
- God Made Me
- God Loves Me
- Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever
The entire curriculum is constructed to meet your preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially.
Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths.
Elementary Ministry (K-5th Grade)
Children are the church of today – not of the future. Our Elementary Ministry team is devoted to reaching children with the truth of God’s word and challenging them to be active participants in their personal relationship with Jesus. Using a high-tech, high-energy and highly relational (small group) environment our desire is to captivate and inspire the hearts of these young disciples of Jesus.
As your child grows, one of our goals is to ensure that your child learns three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
- WISDOM: I need to make the wise choice.
- FAITH: I can trust God no matter what.
- FRIENDSHIP: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Elementary Ministry is for students in K – 5th grade. We provide unique and grade-appropriate environments.
VicKids Special Needs
We believe that everyone was created in the image of God, and that He makes no mistakes. We also believe that He deeply desires a relationship with each and every one of His creations, and we won’t allow anyone to fall through the cracks. That’s why the Special Needs Ministry was created — to provide a place where families may come to receive restoration, resources and rest. Regardless of where children are on the spectrum of abilities, we have a program tailored just for them.
Our Sensory Classroom has been specifically designed to help students with moderate to severe needs grow in their relationship with Christ. We do our best to set an atmosphere that is conducive for students at all levels through the use of specialized lighting, an interactive curriculum, specially trained volunteers and sensory equipment. This classroom setting is currently offered during all of our Sunday services in our Main Building – West Wing.
We also have the Buddy Program. Our vision is for our buddies to develop lifelong, spiritual bonds with families that bridge the gap between home and church through teaching, prayer and fellowship. We offer this to children with mild to moderate needs during all of our weekend services, The City (our middle school ministry) and The Capitol (our high school ministry). We also offer buddies during our Fusion services for children ages 12 and under.

VICTORY CHILDCARE GUIDELINES
Every life is precious
The Child Dedication is a special ceremony for parents desiring to make a public commitment to raise their children according to the Word of God. We conduct these services at Victory quarterly during the year.
The ceremony is for children 0 to 5 years old. If you have an older child(ren) that you would like to have dedicated, we can include them in the same ceremony. (Please indicate this by including them on the application.) We believe that dedicating your children, is committing to God that you will raise them in a Christ-centered home and that all other children in your home will be raised in that manner. So when we dedicate your child(ren), we are also dedicating the parents and family.
The next Child Dedication is Sunday, June 11th, 2017 from 3:30-5pm in the Main Building Chapel. As a prerequisite, all parents participating in the Dedication ceremony are required to attend a Workshop on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 at 6pm.
When & Where
When the application is received, you will be placed on the roster and will also receive additional details concerning the Child Dedication Workshop and Ceremony.
For Children in Middle School: If your child is 11 years or older, you can speak with the leaders of The City (Middle School Ministry).
**Note: Child Dedication services are for active VWC Members only.MEMBERSHIP CLASS
