Welcome to ImagoKids!
At Imago Dei we believe that children are an essential part of the body of Christ, and that they, together with the whole body, hear from God as they come to know Jesus.
ImagoKids is a safe and engaging worship experience that allows our young members to learn about the Father’s love, to come to know Jesus as their Lord and provide them the space to hear from Him through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
We hope that you will come ready to hear the voice of the Good Shepherd with us!
Lay Catechists of Imago Dei
Each of our amazing Lay Catechists has received training on how to lead your children through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
At Imago Kids we are dedicated to doing everything we can to keep our children safe. We believe that protecting our children and modeling for them the way of Jesus is of primary importance to their growth and development. Each of our catechists and nursery volunteers work in pairs and practice safe classroom protocol as well as undergoing a background check and training.
We use a registration and check-in system to help ensure the safety of your child. Please sign your children in when you arrive at Imago, where they will receive a name tag and security code. You, as the parent or guardian, will also receive a matching security tag.
Nursery: Ages 0-3
Our staff loves spending time with your little ones as they know they are ministering to some of our most important members!
Atrium 1: Formation for ImagoKids ages 4-6
We use an approach to Christian formation called Catechesis of theGood Shepherd (CGS). We meet in a specially prepared space called the Atrium, where teachers and students alike come together to fall in love with the Good Shepherd.
We listen to God through multi-sensory Scripture presentations, contemplative work and times of prayer. The curriculum is rooted in Scripture and explores the rich meaning of the liturgical tradition of the church.
Atrium II: Formation for ImagoKids ages 7-10
In Atrium II we build on the child’s relationship with the Good Shepherd, exploring their place and calling in the cosmic plan of God. God has a perfect plan from creation to His return, and He invites us into the joy of His redemption through Jesus Christ. As children come to the age of moral understanding, we explore the grace and truth given to us in the Gospel.
Checking into ImagoKids
CGS begins at 8:30AM, at the beginning of our worship service. Please check your child in at the desk located at the side-door, once they have a name and security tag they can head downstairs to the Atrium any time after 8:20AM. Your child will be returned to you mid-way through the service during the “Peace,” at the start of the Eucharist.
