What do the kids do during the Discipleship Community Hours and Midweek sessions?

During our Discipleship Community Hours, kids attend age-appropriate Bible lessons and activities related to our ABLE framework. They also get to connect with other kids and build friendships. Our Midweek sessions feature a mix of fun activities, short Bible lessons, service projects, and learning about ministry partners. There’s always something happening at CarmelKidz to help your child grow in faith!

As a parent, how can I support my child's faith journey and be more involved in CarmelKidz?

We love partnering with parents to nurture their children’s faith! We encourage you to attend church events, engage with our leaders, and stay updated on upcoming programs. Our goal is to help you bring faith-based teachings into your daily lives, helping your child thrive both at CarmelKidz and at home.

Do I have to be a member of Carmel church for my child to participate in CarmelKidz?

No! We invite you to join us as a first-time guest, and we’d be happy to show you around. We minister to all families who are looking for an engaging, fun, and supportive community for their children to grow in faith. If your family eventually chooses to join the Carmel church community, that’s wonderful, but it’s not a requirement to participate in our CarmelKidz programs.
