The primary responsibility for 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 together 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.
Check-in: All kids fifth grade and under should be checked into Remedy Kids at the front desk upon arrival. You will be given two tags, one for your child and one for you to keep and exchange when you pick your child up at the end. Once you’ve checked in you can follow the signs to the worship area and to your kids’ classrooms. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask at check-in.
Age 3 and Under:
Kids 3 years old and under may be taken directly into Remedy Kids upon arriving. Trained and background-checked volunteers will be 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 upon arrival, and sometime before the message they will be dismissed to Remedy Kids. Our childcare workers and teachers will escort the kids to their classrooms 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. 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.
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 Bryan, and he will be happy to discuss it with you.

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.
