Our hope is that each child will encounter Jesus to become who God made them to be. We strive to teach them in age appropriate and meaningful ways through our 3 core values; Worship Free of Inhibition, Live Free of Sin and Serve Free of Self.
We believe families are equipped and the best tool when it comes to discipling each other. Ransom Kids wants to give you tools to help you teach your kids about Jesus in your home. Our boxes are monthly, each one on a different subject. They contain family devotionals, crafts, games, outings, and more! Each box will contain slightly different contents, to keep your kids excited and engaged.

We will have boxes at each campus on Sundays but you can always come pick up a box and the Ransom Church offices during business hours (M-Th 8:30-4:30, 100 N Ebenezer Drive, Sioux Falls SD, 57107)
YES! We want to partner with you in any way we can to help lead your kids and families to know Jesus. While we will work to keep these cost-effective we will find a way to provide them to as many families as we can, whether they attend the Ransom Church or not!
No. (but yes if you need it) We want these boxes to NOT find their way to the bottom of a pile or in a storage closet. We want them to be sitting on your counter and a staple in your family routine. Find a place where you can look through them and try new fun things. You can grab the new month’s contents on any Sunday or at the office during business hours.
Please contact the Ransom Kids Team and we will help make arrangements.
Our goal for these boxes is to reach all ages in your family. We realize that some of these activities may seem geared towards younger children but older children will still benefit from the activities, quality devotional time and time you get to spend in God’s word as a family.
Anyone who signed up online, in the hub, or picked up a box will receive a monthly update on the current month's box while looking forward to the next month's content.
We strive to teach your child in age-appropriate and meaningful ways through our 3 core values;
Worship Free of Inhibition, Live Free of Sin and Serve Free of Self.
Interactive, large group Bible story time and large group worship.
Small group time with memory verse practice, discussion time, application activities and prayer.
Opportunities to serve together as a family throughout the year and resources to serve their family, friends, school, and community.
0 – 3 YEARS
Kids in our nursery and toddler rooms experience a safe environment where they can feel loved and cared for. They are able to participate in lessons that focus on biblical truths reinforced with age appropriate worship, activities and prayer.
AGE 4 – KINDERGARTEN
Kids in our preschool room will experience Bible stories, worship, games and activities that all focus on biblical truth and that Jesus loves and accepts them.
1ST – 5TH GRADE
Kids in our elementary classroom will experience Bible stories, worship, and prayer through a large interactive group. Afterward, they get to break down what they have learned in a small group with their peers.
Here is what to expect when you visit Ransom Kids for the first time:
We have a specific check-in area just for kids and families. There, we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and one of our team members will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
CHECKING IN FOR THE FIRST TIME:
We will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
At Ransom Church we use a computerized check-in system that identifies each child with a unique code. You can check-in your child at any available IPad. We will have a team member wearing a red lanyard standing by if you have any questions. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are unique to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on both of the side screens during worship. We ask that you exit the service and look for a staff member or team member who will direct you to your child’s room.
Please keep your tag and bring it with you to pick up your child. If you do not have your tag, you will need to print another one before picking your child up. No person will be allowed past the check-in area without a parent name tag or a team member lanyard.
We believe that baptism is a public declaration of an individual’s decision to follow Christ. Since infants are not capable of making that decision, we reserve baptism for a time when an individual is old enough to understand the decision to accept Christ as Savior.
Family Dedications are new for Ransom Church and we are so excited that we will be doing dedications this way.
Family dedication is a time for you to publicly declare your commitment to raise your child to know and love Jesus. It’s also a time to welcome grandparents, friends, and other relatives who are crucial in supporting you in your journey.
Would you be interested in participating in our next Family Dedication?
Did you know that 80% of people find their faith under the age of 18? We have over half of that age grouping here in Ransom Kids. Our team members get to make this happen! You play a vital role in shaping these kids’ faith and the rest of their lives. We don’t take this lightly, but you can bet we have fun while doing it!
