Our goal is for each child to believe three key things: God Loves Me, God Made Me and Jesus Wants to be my Friend Forever.


What To expect

Upon arrival one of our friendly volunteers will bring you to the Kids Info Desk where you'll fill out a registration form. Once we have your information, someone will personally walk you and your child to their classroom before you make your way to the auditorium for the service. When the service has concluded, you can pick your child up at the same place you dropped them off - their classroom. If for any reason there's a problem during the service, we will notify you through a text message so that you can come to the children's area.


 After your first visit, there's no need to register again! Your information will be stored in our system and you can visit any of our Check-In Kiosks to check in your child.

Birth - Toddlers

Our GKids have dedicated volunteers that would love to care for your little one while you attend service. Please let our volunteers know of any special instructions such as a bottle, pacifier, favorite toy or anything that would ensure your child to have a pleasant time while in our care.

2’s - PreK

GKids uses engaging activities to introduce your children to God. You can expect your child to participate in a Bible story, singing and craft to take home. They will also have a snack so as you check-in make sure you enter any allergies before you print a nametag. Our goal is for each child to believe three key things: God Loves Me, God Made Me and Jesus Wants to be my Friend Forever.

Kindergarten - 5th Grades

During elementary, we desire for kids to begin to experience for themselves who God is, how He sees them and how much He loves them. At GKids, the K – 5th grade experience includes high-energy worship, creative teaching and application for discussion with small group leaders. Children have the opportunity to tithe.

When children leave elementary we desire for them to know 3 basic truths: I Need to Make Wise Choices, I Can Trust God No Matter What, and I Should Treat Others the Way I Want to be Treated.
Centri-Kid is a high energy, intentional, gospel-centered overnight camp. Their mission is to help kids experience the time of their lives and learn more about Jesus. This takes place through track times, recreation, worship, Bible study, church time, and a variety of other fun events. Centri-Kid camps are committed to providing content rooting in scripture and a location that is safe.

Next Steps

We love helping parents navigate next steps in the child’s spiritual journey. Baptisms and Parent-Child Dedication are two special moments that we as a church love to celebrate! Please feel free to click on the links to learn more as well as emailing your campus children's minister for more information.
The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their dedication to Christ. You can sign up by clicking the link above.
Parent-Child Dedication is an opportunity for parents to dedicate their children to the Lord and commit to raising them in both the church and in a Christian family.
