What to Expect on a Sunday

Each Sunday, kids begin by worshiping with their parents and the rest of the church family. They are dismissed at the midpoint in the service to continue worshiping King Jesus in age-appropriate classes on the third floor. In our City Kids space, nursery, toddler, and grade school children will be led by committed, background-checked volunteers to encounter the real Jesus through the Bible in fun and engaging ways!


Age Appropriate Classes

We want your kids to love Jesus! We are committed to creating safe and fun environments where your children are taught about Jesus through the Bible in relevant, age-appropriate kids' classes. Our ultimate hope is to see a generation of children come to know God at an early age.

  • City Kids for children Nursery-age 3 is available before the service starts at 10:00am

  • We’ll dismiss kids in Preschool - 5th grade halfway through the service, to continue worshiping upstairs




Check-in for City Kids begins at 9:30am at our Welcome Center, just to the left when you come in the front door. At the check-in area, you’ll be greeted by a City Kids volunteer or staff member who will help you register your children on our secure kids check-in software. You can also choose to preregister your child online before your first visit!
