Gate Kids is a place where kids can have a great big life with a great big God, a place where faith, fun, and learning go hand in hand. Gate Kids is our children's ministry that serves infants through 4th grade. We want kids to see how God's Word fits into their lives, to grow closer to Jesus, and to build friendships that will last. Children enjoy music, activities, and a time of teaching that help them to build friendships with each other and with the God who created them. They discover the Bible and Jesus in ways that are age-appropriate and exciting.
AGE GROUPS & CLASSES
We offer four classrooms during the 10:30 service to meet the needs of our kids:
Babies - 2.5-Year-Olds
2.5- & 3-Year-Olds
For our threes through our fourth graders, we use the Tru curriculum. The best way to describe Tru is with their words: "Tru is a spiritually forming, parent-empowering curriculum that equips children, leaders, and families to know Jesus and live out a vibrant lifetime faith. Tru helps leaders, children, and their families connect to God, find their place in His Big God Story, and respond to Him through the power of the Holy Spirit. Every Tru lesson, resource, and product is created for this purpose."
The Gate is continuing to grow in its safety procedures. Upon arrival, we'll ask a parent to fill out a registration form that informs us of any allergies or special needs as well as who may or may not pick up a child. We also use an electronic check-in system that matches a child's name tag to a caregiver's tag so we can make sure a child is going home with the person who brought him or her. Our classrooms are each staffed with at least two teachers who go through an application process and safety training.
