Welcome - A letter from our Kid's Minister, Shonda Kooser

South Rock Kids Ministry is filled with friends and fun while finding God's plan for each of us!  At South Rock Christian Church it is our great privilege to come together as God has called us to...as church and families working with one another to raise up children in a relationship with Christ for His glory and honor!

 

There are many fun and exciting activities that take place every Sunday morning and throughout each week kids and families connect to a body of believers and most importantly grow in knowledge and experience through God's Word!

 

South Rock Kids Ministry (SR Kids) has a place for you!  Just us, as we live, learn, and love in ways for our children to grow in Christ!

Family Media Resource Reviews - March/April 2020

 

MOVIE-  Trolls World Tour

Genre:: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Rating: PG

Cast: Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Mary J. Blige, James Corden, Kelly Clarkson

Synopsis: In this sequel to the 2016 hit, Poppy and Branch learn about—and visit—other Troll tribes, each of which specializes in a certain musical genre. The Trolls band together to stop Queen Barb from destroying all types of music except her favorite, rock.

Our Take: With its message of artistic diversity, this film lets viewers know it’s okay to have certain likes and dislikes. Although some musical styles are stereotyped, the movie can lead to discussions about song preferences, lyric choices, and even worship styles.

MOVIE-  I Still Believe

Genre:: Drama, Music, Romance

Rating: PG

Cast: K.J. Apa, Britt Robertson, Gary Sinise, Shania Twain

Synopsis: This biopic from the creators of I Can Only Imagine tells the true story of Jeremy Camp, a young Christian music star whose first wife died of cancer. Riverdale’s Apa stars as Camp, whose powerful experiences with love and loss reveal God’s faithfulness amid tragedy.

Our Take: For older children, preteens, and parents, this film will serve as a powerful reminder to trust God during tough times. Camp, whose hit single “I Still Believe” resulted from his personal struggles, says this movie “shows hope in the midst of pain.”

TV

Title: Lego Masters

Author: Fox

Synopsis: In this new twist on reality-show competitions, Lego fanatics race to build intricate creations to impress judges. Although contestants are adults, young viewers will be drawn to the TV series to see how the design challenges turn out. Based on preview clips, host Will Arnett injects snark and sass into his commentary.

Our Take: This appears to be a family-friendly series, and, as a bonus, each episode stands alone well. Use it to spark discussions about creativity, risk-taking, and even deadline pressure. Ask kids how they’d approach each challenge. Then have fun together with your own building blocks.

BOOKS

Title: New Kid

Author: Jerry Craft

Synopsis: This middle-grade book, the first graphic novel to win the Newbery Medal, tells the story of Jordan Banks, a black seventh-grader who loves to draw cartoons. When he’s sent to a mostly white private school, Jordan faces a variety of challenges as he tries to fit in. His sketches reveal the tensions of moving between two distinct places and cultures.

Our Take: Kids ages 8 to 12 will enjoy this funny yet thoughtful book, putting themselves in Jordan’s shoes. In addition to racism, the storyline tackles the universal highs and lows of middle school. The graphic-novel format is ideal for reluctant readers.

Games, Sites & Apps


Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The franchise’s first title for Nintendo Switch heads to a vacation setting. Players get to customize a deserted island, build a dream home, and meet all kinds of new friends. Rewards for completing milestones come in the form of Nook Miles. Rated E for Everyone.


Be Calm on Ahway Island

These calm, kid-friendly stories teach emotional regulation and self-soothing. Weekly episodes, which strive to be inclusive, are ideal for bedtime. Some may balk at the mention of meditation, but the fun exercises (such as taking “dragon breaths”) build helpful life skills.


Biba Playground Games

Outdoor play equipment becomes the site for children’s real-life “missions,” thanks to this free mobile app. By scanning augmented-reality tags in one of 5,000+ parks, players can blend digital and physical play. Reviewers say this app is a great way to get kids moving.


Cirlce Round

The 10- to 20-minute episodes of this podcast feature kid-friendly folktales from around the world. They address values such as kindness, persistence, and generosity. Suggested activities encourage family discussions afterward. The podcast is geared toward story-lovers ages 4 to 10.


The Little Line

With this iPhone and iPad app, children can draw illustrations for an adventure story about a little boy. They also can erase anything they don’t like, such as scary monsters. The app, based on Serge Bloch’s children’s book The Big Adventure of a Little Line, is best for kids ages 4 and up.


Wattam

This colorful, bouncy “goof around” game for PlayStation4 is filled with silly, childlike wonder—but also is a bit simplistic, according to reviewers. The player is a green-cubed mayor, making friends and spreading joy. Rated E10+, this game has mild crude humor such as “poop” shapes.
