New To KidLand?

Here’s what you need to know.

Kids are really important to us. We want our kids to grow up having loved going to church. But ultimately, we want our kids to grow up choosing to love and follow Jesus with their lives. That’s why we work really hard to create awesome experiences in Kidland each week. We feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity each and every week to help shape and influence the next generation for Christ!

For curriculum, we use Orange to teach our kids about Jesus. We think the resources and lessons they provide us are fantastic. And our kids love it too!

Here’s everything else you need to know for your first visit with your kids to The Gathering:

Kids in the Nursery (0-36 months) can go straight to the Nursery and be signed in there.
Fun Church is for children aged 3 (must be potty-trained) to Senior Kindergarten.  They will meet at 10:30, in the KITCHEN.  After some play time, they will have their own worship, hear a lesson, and do an activity or craft.   After the service, the children can be picked up at the Kitchen.
Kids Church is for children in Grades 1-5.  Please sign in your kids in front of the chapel, and then bring them with you to the main auditorium where they can worship with you for the first part of the service – this is a great time for you as parents to teach your children how to worship!  Upon the kids dismissal, the kids will line up at the Chapel doors, and then they will participate in their own set of worship, hear a lesson, and complete a craft or activity.  At the end of service, they can be picked up and signed out at the Chapel.
