Ethos Kids

WE LOVE OUR KIDS

CORE VALUES & POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

We believe that your child’s safety is of utmost importance. We require our Ethos Tots, Kids, and Club workers and volunteers to complete MinistrySafe training, a sexual abuse awareness training program, as well as perform background checks on nursery workers. We also employ an armed security guard (a Reserve Deputy with the Tulsa County Sheriffs Department) to be on-site every Sunday, allowing for an added level of protection for our children.

Core Values

Care-taking

Care-taking

Safe

Simple

Our aim is to create the safest place for our children to thrive. This is why we hire a security officer to patrol our premises and why we require background checks for all our paid workers and volunteers. We also want to make it simple for parents to check-in their children, identify volunteers, and communicate needs.

Christ-giving

Christ-giving

Grace, not guilt

Belief, not behaviorism

We want to give our children Christ. We are raising the next generation of Christians and we want them to know and love Jesus. That’s why we make Jesus the hero of every Bible story. We don’t want to motivate them by guilt but teach them to respond to the gracious love of Christ. We want them to trust Jesus, not just to behave well. We want them to feel valued simply because they are created in the image of God.

Character-forming

Character-forming

Discipleship, not just discipline

Maturity, not just memorization

We want our children to be kind, gentle, self-controlled, loving, considerate, honest, and patient, just like we want ourselves to be. So we hope to shape their character to exhibit the fruits of the Spirit even at a young age. We are shepherding their development as young Christians, not simply punishing bad behavior or teaching them to memorize the right answers.

Fun!

Friends!

Overall, we want our children to have fun. We want them to be kids because we believe that God loves children and he loves childhood. We hope our children will find community as they grow up with other kids in their class. We want them to be excited about coming to church because they know they will have fun and see their friends. We want our children to love God, love his Word, love each other, and love the Church.

ETHOS TOTS, KIDS, CLUB, & YOUTH

ETHOS TOTS

ETHOS TOTS is our church nursery for children birth to 3 yrs. We provide childcare for all families during our entire worship service. If you are a nursing mother, we have a dedicated space for you in our balcony so that you can still be present in the worship service, or if you prefer, we have a private space in our nursery.

ETHOS KIDS

ETHOS KIDS is our Children’s Church for PreK to 3rd grade. Our Ethos Kids join the worship service for music and then gather for a biblical lesson with an Ethos Kids worker. They will return to the auditorium immediately before communion and offering.

ETHOS CLUB

ETHOS CLUB is a FUN and FELLOWSHIP time for 8-year-olds and older. The club meets every other week, after church with lunch at an offsite location.

ETHOS YOUTH

ETHOS YOUTH: We partner with RiverOaks Presbyterian for our Youth Group. Information on this program can be found HERE.
