PEAK 22

Love Up. Love In. Love Out.
What’s not to love about that?

“‘Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” – Matthew 22:37-38

Children’s Ministry

Infant & Toddler Care

Snowmass Chapel’s Creekside Room is open during our 9am service for babies and their parents who might need an alternate place to play, sleep, or nurse. A live stream of the service is available with toys and free hot coffee to boot.

Snow Angels

Our baby & toddler room, for ages 6 mo through 3 years, is open during our 9am service and provides supervised care, play, music, a snack, and a very short “lesson”. We believe children are never too young to begin hearing about how much God loves them. We use the “First Look” curriculum with our babies and toddlers, which focuses on communicating simple truths like “God is Love,” and “God is always with us.”

Preschool & Kindergarten

Snow Bunnies

Ages 3 through 6 gather together with friends at 9am on Sunday mornings for play, worship, a craft or activity, and a lesson. Our “First Look” curriculum is built upon Matthew 22 (“Love God, Love People”) and is guided by three relational motives:

  • Move kids to Love God by inciting Wonder
  • Move kids to Love Life by provoking Discovery
  • Move kids to Love Others by fueling Passion

 

In addition to the “First Look” lesson plans we leverage Godly Play materials, which allow children to touch and manipulate wooden components of the stories they hear.

Jibbers & Shredders

Elementary and lower middle school students are invited to join us at 9am on Sunday mornings for high energy worship and hands on games and activities.

Our Peak teachers are implementing the “252 Basics” curriculum to help your child grow in their relationship with Jesus. The curriculum is based on three basic principles.  Wisdom, faith, and friendship. Associated with those principles are three truths:

  • I will make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

 

Our lesson plans are organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them. Every month presents a new focus area and mini-series to help children discover more about God’s character. Children will leave Peak able to recite the weekly Bottom Line and encouraged to commit a scripture verse to memory for the following Sunday.

Character Coins & the Coin Store

Outdoor and experiential Sunday School aren’t the only unique components that make Peak 22 special. Children love our Character Coins and store!

Kids earn our plastic currency for loving up, loving in, and loving out. Things like showing up for worship, being fully present, committing scripture to memory, being kind and respectful, and helping the teacher or a friend are all ways children can earn coins. At the end of each Sunday service children have the chance to purchase a prize, donate to a cause / tithe, or do a little of both.

Camp SmashBox

Join the Bash!

This wild, wacky, and a little bit weird summer camp is 100% love-in-action and 100% adventure. It’s our way of connecting children with nature, with one another, and with leaders who love them, without any religious agenda other than love. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them.” If talking about God and religion is what is keeping kids away from the church, then we’re just going to shut our mouths and let our actions do the talking. Check out CampSmashbox.com for more information on our extremely popular summer camp, with opportunities for children to participate ages 5 thru college!
