TeamKID is a fun, high-energy ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus and grow in a relationship with Him. All parts of TeamKID—Bible stories, Scripture memory, life application, missions, and recreation—connect to teach biblical life lessons to kids.

What is the TeamKID Club? A TeamKID club is a group of children led by a head coach and at least one coach who use the TeamKID resources to enhance spiritual growth.

Why is the KID capitalized in TeamKID? The KID stands for Kids in Discipleship. Discipling children is the goal of TeamKID! We believe TeamKID will be an excellent support to our overall vision and mission at Temple!
What happens in a TeamKID meeting? TeamKID is designed for children to do more than memorize Scripture. It helps children understand what the verses they memorize mean because all parts of the TeamKID meeting focus on one Bible message. The noncompetitive games, Bible story, memory verse, missions, refreshments, and conclusion all contribute to help children understand and apply God’s Word to their lives.

A TeamKID meeting has 6 parts with each one flowing into the next to keep the pace moving with non-stop energy:
  1. WARM-UP is the opening activity that begins as soon as the first child arrives at TeamKID.
  2. WORKOUT includes energized, interactive Bible study as children hear or experience a Bible story, learn the meaning of a Bible verse, apply Bible truths to their lives, sing, and pray.
  3. REACH OUT uses either the missions DVD, missions activities, or mission action projects to teach children about missions around the world.
  4. STRETCHING is when children work on learning the memory verse.
  5. THE TOURNAMENT is a time to run, play, and laugh with fun games and activities that reinforce the Bible study.
  6. COOL DOWN is the final few minutes of the meeting and includes refreshment sand a review of what children have learned.
What about the Grand Prix and Camparee? The Grand Prix and Camparee are two exciting events for our children’s ministry. They activities will continue to be a part of our children’s ministry.
What is the recognition program? TeamKID recognizes each child for attending meetings, completing Bible-related work, and bringing friends with them. Because children earn stickers they can redeem for items in a TeamKID store, accomplishments between children are not compared to one another as it would be if children earned patches or some other kind of visible reward.
Is the gospel presented? In the children’s resources, TeamKID recognizes that children should have opportunities to hear the gospel and respond to it. Many of the meetings provide opportunities for coaches to share the plan of salvation and to answer questions that children might have.
What ages can participate in TeamKID? We will have Preschool TeamKID for children ages Pre-K. Kids in this group will grow spiritually, physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially. In addition, Preschool TeamKID includes missions and Bible skills every week.

We will also have two TeamKID groups for grades K­–2 and 3–5. This program includes high-impact Bible lessons, Scripture memorization, life application, and missions focus.
When will TeamKID begin? TeamKID will launch on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 5:30pm. That night will be our Family Night at Temple and a meal will be provided. Dinner will begin at 5:30pm and TeamKID will begin at 6:30pm. (After kick-off night, TeamKID will be held each Wednesday night at 6:30pm).
