Gateway Kids


We are excited to have our Gateway Kids in clean and fun rooms at the church! We can’t wait to meet your family. We know things are busy at this stage of life and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways. We are ready for them!

We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with our children. So, you can plan on a lot of jumping, dancing, and laughter in every experience. We look forward to helping your children learn more about God while you are in the service with other adults.

While you are experiencing God in the worship service, your child will also be learning life lessons with other children.  We have a curriculum for our Elementary and Preschool age children. 1st-5th graders join their parents in the worship center for the music portion of our service. Following worship they are dismissed to their classes.

Gateway Kids Age Groups

We have staffed classes for:  Toddlers (ages 1-2), Preschool (age 3-kindergarten), Lower Elementary (grades 1-3), Upper Elementary (grades 4 and 5). We also have a nursery for mothers to take their newborns during service where they can watch a live feed from our worship center.

We Have A Secure Environment

We take security seriously. Each child is checked into our computer system when they arrive. On your first visit, we go over any allergies that the child may have.  The child and the parent are then given a matching tag so that nobody can pick up the child unless they have that corresponding tag. In addition, all of our volunteers & staff have undergone a background check to ensure the highest level of safety. When you arrive, our Gateway Kids check-in is located in the main church lobby.
