Kids Life

Leading kids to love God, grow together, and reach their world.

You’re the primary influencer in your kiddo’s life—no matter how big or little they are—and that’s totally how it should be. So for us as a church family, it’s all about partnership. The time we spend each week with your kid is valuable, but it’s only designed to be the start of the conversation. We want to do everything we can to equip and empower you to lead your family to love God and follow Him. We know the days are long and the years are short, so we do our best to make it simple.

Our littlest ones are filled with wonder and excitement. Each Sunday, we welcome them into a safe, loving environment where faith is nurtured through songs, play and learning experiences designed with their ability in mind.

Discovery fuels the faith of elementary kids. That’s why our kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms create opportunities for kids to explore the Bible and uncover what it means to follow Jesus through engaging lessons and activities designed just for them. Their morning will be filled with playing, singing, creating and talking that encourages connection with God and others.

Keeping Families Safe


Our desire is to create safe, connected, and formative learning communities that kids and students can safely access in-person or online. Health and safety guidelines are tremendously important and have been our focus for the last several months, as well as the current social, emotional, and spiritual needs of your family. Below are the procedures our church has implemented to keep our families and staff safe. Please keep in mind that these procedures may change as needed in order to comply with the recommended guidelines.

Wellness Checks 

We respectfully ask that your family not attend if they have been exposed to someone with a positive Covid-19 diagnosis within the past 14 days. We are also asking all parents to do a wellness check on their kids/students before bringing them to church. We ask that they not attend if they exhibit any symptoms of illness, including:

  • Fever in the last 24 hours
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
Face Coverings 

We are asking that everyone 2 years and older wear face coverings while in Kids’ and Student Life programming. We understand that this is a touchy subject but wish to follow CDC guidelines to keep our kids and volunteers safe.

Class/ Group Sizes 

In order to ensure the safety of our kids, students, and staff, we have decreased the number of people in our class and Life Group sizes and will do our best to follow current spatial distance guidelines.

Handwashing 

There are hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. Everyone will be asked to either wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering our Kids’ Life and Student Life classes.

Clean Rooms 

Enhanced cleaning procedures will be implemented in classrooms after each group has used the room. We will be sanitizing in between services and alternating toys each service as much as possible.

Snack

We will temporarily stop serving snacks in our Kids’ Life classes.

Sick Children

Children who show any signs of being sick will be removed from the classroom and moved to a designated health room to wait for their parents to pick them up. If anyone displays symptoms or reports testing positive for Covid-19 in your kid’s group, we will contact you immediately.  

Drop Off/Pick Up

We kindly request that only one parent enter the Kids’ Life hallways to drop off and pick up their kids. This will help reduce the traffic in the hallways to help with social distancing.
