We love to see the next generation introduced to Jesus. We believe we do that best by coming alongside parents in their God-given task of raising children to love God and embrace the gospel. Our ministries for young people at Kossuth all serve that goal. Whether you're a brand new parent, or a parent of teenagers who are about to leave the nest, we have plenty of opportunities available to equip you and serve your kids.



Preschool & Elementary



Connection Hour

The weekly Connection Hour provides opportunities for children to learn from the Bible together. Classes are divided by age and are led by teams of Kossuth members. Kids from kindergarten through 5th grade begin the hour with a large group worship time before splitting up into their specific classes. The nursery is also staffed during this time for infants and toddlers.


Worship

During the corporate worship service, classes are available for children ages 2-5. These classes reinforce the Bible lesson from the Kids' Connection Hour. Older children (kindergarten and up) are invited to participate in the worship service with their families using Sermon Notes for Kids. Parents who prefer to have their younger children join them in the worship service are welcome to do so.  The nursery is also staffed during this time for infants and toddlers.


Midweek

The goal of Kossuth's midweek ministry is to equip and encourage parents in family discipleship while engaging children with the gospel. Toward this end, we offer Wednesday night kids' clubs as well as a monthly family meal and parenting group. Our midweek groups meet three times a month from October-March. Every third Wednesday is family night! Come early to enjoy a meal together, then stick around for a parenting group while your kids enjoy their weekly clubs. The week following each family night is an "off week" for you to use however fits your family.




Middle & High School



Connection Hour

The weekly Connection Hour provides an important opportunity for young people to learn from the Bible and connect with one another. There is a middle school class and a high school class which both meet during this time.


Midweek

Gospel Academy is our middle school group. It  follows the "Midweek at Kossuth" schedule and meets on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The group explores foundational truths about God, the Bible, and knowing Jesus. Most evenings consist of a large group lesson, prayer groups, and games, usually accompanied by snacks and lots of laughter. 


Gospel Life is our high school group. It also Gospel Life follows the "Midweek at Kossuth" schedule and meets on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. This group encourages students to center their lives on Jesus and the gospel. High school students also meet after each Family Gathering (typically the first Sunday of the month) for "Dinner After," a relaxed hangout time hosted by a KSBC family or at an area restaurant.

Student/Parent

Once a month, students and parents gather for a time of joint learning and discipleship. Because we believe that parents are called by God to be the primary faith-trainers in the lives of their children, we think these meetings are vitally important to the health of our families and the development of our young people. Student/Parent Meetings are for students in grades 6-12 and their parents and are scheduled from 6:00-8:00 on the third Sunday evening of the month. A typical evening includes snacks, games, a joint teaching time, and break-out discussion opportunities for both parents and students.
