LIL’ RAYS VISION

At Radiance, we believe that our children can authentically worship just like their parents.  It’s our desire that our families would learn how to make Jesus #1 in their hearts and take practical steps to shine His light to the world.

OUR GOALS AT LIL’ RAYS ARE:

  • To lead each child to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • To teach each child to love God and love people.
  • To provide opportunities for children to serve and to demonstrate the love of Christ.

 

CURRICULUM:

At Lil’ Rays we have chosen the Children Desiring God curriculum.

“Children Desiring God exists to equip the body of Christ to spread to the next generations a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. Our aim is to impart to children a vision of God, who He is, and who we are in relation to Him, and to establish them with a foundation of doctrine and truth. We want them biblically grounded, seeing God as the hero of every story, with a God-centered world view and a faith that will hold them when the days of testing come. We want them to love the Lord their God with all their heart, and to delight in Him forever.”

A SAFE ENVIRONMENT

At Lil’ Rays, we want to provide a safe and secure environment for each child. Each family checks in their child/children at a self check-in station in front of Gallery A. At the self check-in station, each family will enter your 10-digit phone number. Each child will receive a name tag to wear while he/she is in worship service. The name tag has a unique alphanumeric code that is generated at random every week. All parents will receive a pick-up label with the same code as their children. Each family will show this label to the Lil’ Ray teacher when picking up their child. After check-in, you can drop your child off in Gallery A for worship and the large group lesson. Those arriving later will be guided to the child’s classroom.

 

FIRST TIME VISITORS

If you will be visiting Lil’ Rays for the first time, we invite you to arrive 15 minutes before the worship service. You’ll fill out a New Family Member form and we’ll print name labels and pick-up labels for your child(ren).

 

STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS

Lil’ Rays is committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for children. All Lil’ Rays teachers and leaders are carefully screened and supervised, and complete a comprehensive application before serving in Lil’ Rays. This application includes a background check and reference checks. In addition, several teachers have received First Aid, CPR, and AED training.

Why I teachTo worship alongside the children and teachers of Radiance (and to see CM Director, Jon Moon, dance), is one of my greatest joys. As part of the praise and motions team, I am reminded that our hearts, whether toddler or adult, were meant to be uninhibited in His love and effusive in our praise to Jesus.
