It’s our job to help you disciple your kids.
The primary responsibility for training and teaching kids to love Jesus belongs to their parents. It’s daunting and a little overwhelming, we know. That’s why our goal and our job as the church is to walk alongside each other in that journey, encouraging, supporting, and equipping each other.
Our desire is to provide a safe place for kids and families that is helpful in teaching all our kids what it means and what it looks like to love and follow Jesus.
Sunday Worship Gatherings
Age 3 and Under: Kids 3 years old and under may be checked directly into Remedy Kids upon arriving in the morning. We will give you a security tag that you will exchange for your child when you pick them up. We will have workers who have been screened and trained there to take care of the kids and help them have a good time. Kids three and under will stay in Remedy Kids the entire time.
Age 4 through 5th Grade: Kids 4 years old through 5th grade are invited to participate in the first portion of the worship gathering with their parents. They should still be checked in when they arrive in the morning, where parents will receive security tags to exchange when they pick up each child, and sometime before the message they will be dismissed to Remedy Kids. Our childcare workers and teachers will escort the kids to their meeting rooms for activities and Bible study designed specifically with them in mind.
Pickup: Parents of all kids can pick their children up from Remedy Kids after the worship gathering ends, where they will be given a guide of what their kids learned and how to engage them about it during the week. They will need the tag corresponding to their kids to pick them up, which they will receive when they check them in.
Kids are always welcome to join their parents in the worship gathering for any length of time, and we’re not worried or bothered by a little extra noise or movement. We love our kids and value their presence with us as part of our family.
Screening & Training of Workers
We value both the safety and instruction of our kids very highly. All workers in Remedy Kids have been thoroughly screened and trained through a series of background checks and child protection training. If you have questions or would like to know more about our process, email Michelle Bartosh, and she will be happy to discus this with you.

During The Week
Children are part of a Missional Community with their parents. Each group has the freedom to decide how to best engage the kids in their group. There may be times when it is beneficial for the kids to sit in and observe or participate with their parents, and in this way to learn to engage scripture and other believers. This could lead to more discussion at home. There may also be times when it is beneficial for the adults to interact separate from the kids. Whatever the case, the individual groups will decide the best way to handle kids in their group with the approval of the Missional Communities director.
Other Events and Activities
We will utilize other events from time to time as they fit with our philosophies, values, and schedule. These may be things like camps, retreats, DNOW, mission trips, service projects, parties, and other things. The primary filter for planning any events or activities will be whether they fit with our philosophy of ministry.
