Check-in Process

Nursery (ages 0–3)

Kids Room (age 4–grade 5)

Upon arrival, parents are invited to check-in their children at the station to the left of our lobby. But don’t drop off your kids just yet! We invite you to grab a cup of coffee and find a spot in our sanctuary. The service starts at 10am with everyone together. Before the teaching, kids will be dismissed to their appropriate classes.

Parent pick-up happens right after the service, usually between 11:15 and 11:30am. For the safety of your child, you will need to show your matching tag at pick up. We take your child’s safety very seriously; our NextGen workers are here to make this process as smooth as possible!

Our church utilizes the childrens' curriculum put out by We follow the “in-step” calendar, so you can always view what the current lesson is to find ways to integrate what our leaders are teaching with your own home spiritual formation efforts. We recommend downloading the “Bible App” in either Apple or Google Play stores as the app aligns with the curriculum used in our kids class.

We truly want to partner with parents to pass on faith to the next generation, so please let us know how we can specifically partner with you to help your kids follow Jesus!


As a smaller growing church, we love our NextGen workers so much! Each have a cleared yearly background check on file with the church office and go through basic training. If you are interested in serving our kids, please fill out our serve team form. A volunteer handbook can be presented upon request.
