To help kids LEARN about God, LOVE God, and LIVE for God.
We help kids LEARN about God through age-appropriate, fun, creative, and applicable Bible teaching. Kids will experience God's LOVE in a safe environment through our relational team members and be able to express love to God through prayer, worship, and community. We partner with families to allow kids to LIVE out their faith at home, in their community, and into the world!

first time guests & check-in
Your child is important to us. On your first visit, a Check-In host will give you a tour through our children's ministry, answer any questions you may have, and collect the following personal information from you: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our LIFEkids database to help maintain our secure check-in system. After your first visit, Check-In is done quickly and securely through iPads in the main lobby where you'll easily find your child in the system, print off a name tag, and drop them off. Don't worry, if your child needs you during service, we'll easily page you with your child's unique check-in code on the screen during service.
HAPPY CHILD POLICY
If volunteers are not able to console a child (of any age) within 10 minutes, we will page the parent.
ADJUSTMENT PERIOD POLICY
We will allow siblings of different ages to attend the same class together. We request that the older sibling attend the class of the younger sibling, with the goal to help the child adjust and to eventually have each child attending their designated class.
NURSERY: Every child's diaper will be changed during service, unless otherwise requested.
TODDLERS: Parent will be paged for toddlers in diapers who need to be changed.
PRE-K — ELEMENTARY: Children can be excused from class to use the restroom, and the service coordinator will make sure the child makes it safely to and from the restroom.
*Only adult, female ministry workers are permitted to change diapers or assist children in the restroom.
We want to provide a healthy environment in our classrooms, so we ask that you keep your child at home when any of the following have occurred within the last 24 hours: fever/vomiting, discharge in/around the eyes, green/yellow runny nose, excessive coughing, diarrhea, questionable rash, any communicable disease. If your child is being treated with an antibiotic, he/she should have received treatment for at least 24 hours before attending class.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. Volunteers go through a four-step process to ensure they are properly screened and trained so you can rest assured that your child is in good hands.
We use a security tag system for child check-in and pick-up. Each week, your child will get a new, unique code on their name tag, and you will get a parent sticker with the matching code. At pick-up, your child's teacher will request to see your parent sticker to ensure the codes match for a secure, safe pick-up. We also use a paging system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the worship experience. If necessary, you'll see that unique code up on the screen during worship and will know that you are needed.
