The Kids Ministry provides a loving and safe environment for children to learn. Our goal is to teach each child the Word of God and help them build a foundation that will edify and establish them in the faith. It is our desire to come alongside parents as they train up their children in the Word of God, helping children grow in their knowledge and understanding of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Kids Ministry is available during all regular services and cares for children ranging from infants to 6th graders, including those with special needs. Classrooms open fifteen minutes prior to the start of services to allow you time to check in your children. There are maps throughout the campus to help you find your children’s classrooms. If you need additional help, feel free to ask for help from any of our friendly Kids Ministry servants.
Our current focus in Kids Ministry is inspired by Jeremiah 23:29, “‘Is not my word like fire?’ says the Lord.” We strive to ignite the hearts of our kids in their relationship with the Lord, to ignite the hearts of our parents as they encourage their kids to live for Jesus outside the church, and to ignite the hearts of our servants as they continue to be faithful to the Lord in His service.

CLASSROOM CHECK IN
The safety of your kids entrusted to our care is of utmost importance to us. We utilize the trusted digital check-in system KidCheck to ensure your kids are safely checked out by those who checked them in.
To check in your kids into our classrooms, you will need to have an account with KidCheck. If you don’t already have an account, you can quickly create one through KidCheck.com.
Make sure to take advantage of KidCheck Express and download the KidCheck app for free. The app will allow you to start your check-in process anywhere there is an internet or cellular data connection.
When arriving to our campus, locate the nearest KidCheck station to check in before heading to your child’s classroom.
After you make your way to your child’s classroom, their teacher will initial your guardian receipt to indicate your child has been checked into the classroom.
When you return to the classroom to pick up your child, present your guardian receipt to the teacher. The teacher will confirm that the three-digit code on your guardian receipt matches the code on your child’s name label.
Frequently AskED QUESTIONS
Is it ok to bring my kid’s friend/relative to our fellowship even though this may not be their home fellowship? And how do we help them sign-in?
Absolutely! We encourage the kids to witness to their friends and relatives by inviting them to come to church with them. Please note that you will use the same check-in/out procedure for guest/visitor kids. You can check in your kid’s friend/relative into their own respective classroom.
Is it OK to bring snacks or treats for my kid to share with the other kids in his/her class?
No. The Kids Ministry has been entrusted with the care and safety of the kids in our fellowship. More than 12 million Americans suffer from food allergies, 3.1 million are kids. Since food allergies have become such a prevalent issue of concern for our little ones, we ask that parents and teachers do not bring special treats for the kids. In the event of a special day or party, the parents will be given a list of approved/disapproved foods beforehand.
I’m concerned that my baby’s diaper may not be changed when needed; how do I know that he/she will not be left in a wet diaper during class?
As Kids Ministers we desire to take care of the kids entrusted to our care as best we can. In order to better minister to our kids and their parents, we check the diaper of every kid that is under our care during the service. In this, we will ensure that each kid will be handed back to their parent with a clean diaper.
I am visiting for the first time; how do I find the appropriate classroom to take my child?

In addition to the classroom map link above, we have maps throughout the campus to help you find where your children will be assigned during service.
What do you offer for those with special needs?
Room 206 is a classroom we have designed for those with special needs. The servants dedicated to the students in this class love and show compassion to these individuals while practically sharing Jesus. The servant to student ratio is smaller for this classroom than our other classrooms, allowing for a safer and more intimate learning environment.
