KIDS & STUDENTS
Hi! My name is Jil Kuljian and I am the Children’s Pastor here at Skyline Church! Let me just say straight up that I LOVE JESUS and I LOVE KIDS! I am passionate about helping kids experience the REAL love of Jesus in their lives as they learn and grow in their faith and knowledge of God’s Word.
Our key verse is Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world!” We believe that in a world so full of darkness, we must shine as bright as we can. Leading our children in the right direction can be no half hearted attempt because the stakes are too high. It’s time to...
The Get Real Children’s Ministry is a place where kids can go each Sunday to meet with a REAL God and receive REAL biblical instruction while having lots of FUN! Get Real is also a place where kids can recognize & GET REAL with their God given gifts & talents as they are trained & equipped to minister to the body of Christ.
GET REAL gives children guidance through examples of biblical stories & principles that they experience through creative games, drama, puppetry, media & other forms of artistic expression. In Get Real, kids learn that a REAL relationship with Jesus includes worshipping, serving, praising, trusting, obeying & hiding God’s Word in their hearts. Our prayer is that our children will come to know that they are infinitely and unconditionally loved by God and out of that love they will SHINE their brightest for the glory of God!
Through our boldness our children will understand what our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ meant when He said, “You are the LIGHT of the world!” They must come to know that they are a generation who is called to SHINE!
Because this is our focus, you will notice that our classrooms all reflect this theme and each age or group has its own special Bible verse.
