Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children." Matthew 19:14
Kids are super important to God...and to us! Our goal is to love kids the way Jesus does, and to lead them — in partnership with their parents and guardians — into an understanding of God and His Word. We believe that doing this in a safe, fun, engaging way will transform the next generations for a lifetime.
Safari Kids is the name of our ministry for kids, birth through sixth grade. We've created an exciting environment to help this age group discover the wonder of God! We have dozens of mentors and teachers who've dedicated themselves to serve this generation — and we'd be honored to have your children become Safari Kids!
Safari on Sundays!
On Sunday mornings, come into the courtyard, and you'll find a check-in room, right below the big SAFARI KIDS sign. When you check your children in, you'll receive a security sticker that you'll need when you check your child out of their class after church. After checking them in:
- For kids birth through Pre-K, please take them to their classrooms to drop them off after checking them in.
- For kids in Kindergarten through 6th Grade, please take them to the Gym where they'll kick off Safari Kids each Sunday morning with a "Big Camp" meeting! After that, they go their classrooms with their mentors. In order to serve grade-school kids in an age-appropriate manner, we have three different classes for them: grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-6.
- After church, please bring your security sticker and pick up your child directly from their classroom.
To help ensure the safety of all children we not only use a digital check-in system, but all who work with our kids have passed a national background check and have completed a safety training program. We also use security cameras in areas where children are present.
We look forward to meeting your child and learning how we can best serve you and your family!
