What To Expect

We believe kids learn more about God when they’re experiencing Jesus in a way they can understand and enjoy. Our ministry offers kids of all ages a safe, gospel-centered environment created just for them.

Your kids will have a blast learning about Jesus at their level and in age-appropriate rooms. If you’re new, please arrive at least 15 minutes early to register your kids and make sure they get to their rooms before service begins.

First-Time Guests

When you pull into the parking lot, you will notice volunteers ready to welcome your family to church. Any of these individuals can direct you to Kids Check-In and show you to your child’s classroom. We invite your child to join us to experience a worship service tailored to their age.

Check-In

Your child is important to us. On your first visit, we will ask you to register each child into our secure check-in system.

Safety

Your child’s safety is our first priority. All Difference Makers pass a background check, and we have our own security team to ensure safety throughout the building. We use a name tag system for check-in and pick-up, and a texting system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the worship experience.

Parent Cue App

Our lives are busy. As parents, we want to prioritize our children. We want to do everything we can to invest in them relationally, to guide them developmentally, and to help them grow in their faith in Christ. But it’s just so easy to get caught up in the urgent day-to-day business of life.

Every parent has 936 weeks of influence from the time their child is born until they graduate. Parent Cue helps you count the weeks and connects you with practical things to read, do or say to help you engage with the heart of your child this week. Designed for parents of babies through high schoolers, these prompts will come in the form of videos and things to talk about in the morning, at meal time, or while you are cuddling with your toddler or driving in the car. Each week there’s even a Phase Cue to help you understand the developmental phase your child is in today.
