In-Person KidZone is open!
We have limited capacity due to county safety guidelines, so please RSVP to reserve a place for your child.
If you submit an RSVP and no longer plan to attend, we ask that you send a note to Jill Campo (JillDCampo@hotmail.com) or Karyn Hunt (email@example.com) so that other children can be offered a place in the class.

- Ephesians - Phil Vischer
- Adventures in Odyssey
- What's in the Bible - Phil Vischer
- Kids Read Truth: This website has quite a few journals, studies, and cards with Scripture and stories for kids.
- GT and the Halo Express audio CD collection: If you want Scripture to be embedded into their heart, this resource pairs scripture with songs and is a great resource.
- Bibles, devotionals and other books are also great for learning about Kingdom values. Here are some suggestions
- For 0-3 years old
- The Beginner’s Bible: This is a great, introduction to the Bible. It overviews major Bible stories and is written for little ones to understand.
- A Child’s First Bible: Another great collection of Bible stories for little ones.
- The One Year Devotional for Preschoolers: A sweet set of devotionals that are age appropriate for little ones.
- Lift the Flap Bible: A fun book for little ones with Bible stories throughout.
- Every Where I Go, God is with Me: This is one of many Li’l Buddies books. These are sweet board books with Christian themes.
- For 4-7 years old
- The Jesus Storybook Bible: Each story ties back to Christ. My (Jill's) crew has loved this book and read through it a few times.
- Children, Can you Hear Me? How to Hear and See God: This is an amazing book to encourage kids to listen to God’s voice and form a relationship with him.
- How Great is Our God: 100 Devotions for Kids about God and Science: Honestly, I (Jill) haven’t read this one yet, but recently bought it as a Christmas gift for the boys. It just came out.

- The Adventure Bible: This is an excellent first Bible (not just Bible stories, but the entire Bible) for elementary-aged kids. I (Jill) might be partial as this is the Bible I grew up with, but it is still a classic. There are other versions as well for early readers:
- The Action Bible: A picture Bible written similar to a comic book. This is a Bible an older elementary-child could read on their own. There's also the Action Bible Devotional to accompany the book.
- Love Does for Kids: This book is filled with stories that encourage kids to dream big and consider how they can make a difference for God. We’ve been reading some of the stories from time to time in Sunday School
- Hinds’ Feet on High Places: Don’t let the odd cover deceive you. This is an excellent book written in an allegory format.
- The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Classic books with Biblical themes.
- The Radical Book for Kids: Exploring the Roots and Shoots of Faith. I (Jill) just purchased this book for my older two as a Christmas gift. It looks amazing as a reference for the Bible, church history, and the Christian life.
