The Values of CityKids

At the root of CityKids are the following Biblical values:

  • Knowing God, being sown with the seed of God's Word. (Luke 8:15, 2 Corinthians 9:6)
  • Growth is the result of spending time in God's Word, prayer and fellowship. (Psalm 1:3, John 15:16)
  • Growth comes only from God (1 Corinthians 3:5-7, John 15:5)
  • Fruit of the Spirit is the evidence of growth. (John 15:16, Galatians 5:22-23)
  • All disciples are commanded to "preach the good news" of Jesus and to make more disciples for him. (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15)


During the summer months we will have programming downstairs for children age 0-kindergarten.  Our programming for elementary aged students will be taking a break for the summer, and will resume in September!  Please note that on Sunday, JUNE 4 we will not have programming, because worship will be taking place at the Lake Harriet Bandshell.

Twists & Turns: Following Jesus Changes the Game!
Spin the spinner, beat the clock, skip ahead, level up, and play to win! You’ll need to bring your A-game for this VBS. Twists & Turns is a fantastical celebration of games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives. They’ll find that even when they mess up it’s never “game over.”
