City Kids is our ministry for children six weeks old through fifth grade, and their parents. During Sunday Gatherings, your kids will be supervised and taught about Jesus in an age-appropriate way.
City Kids exists to teach kids that Jesus is the hero we all need. We want to lay a foundation of the good news of Jesus for families to build on back at home. We have numerous experienced City Kids volunteers who will make sure your kid is safe, has a great time, and learns about Jesus. Our City Kids areas are secured to ensure your child is safe during the Gathering. We hope this will allow you to focus during our Gatherings, knowing your child is hearing about Jesus in a kid-friendly manner.
We know leaving your kids with a new group of people is something you don't take lightly, so we've taken the time to answer some common questions below.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring for my child? Depending on the age of your child, be sure to bring diapers, pacifiers, a change of clothes, and a bottle of milk, formula, juice, or water. To help us keep track of your items, please label all personal items with your child's first and last names before arriving.
What happens when I arrive? Upon approaching Jackson Terminal, look for the large City Kids signage. Check-In is at the Green Room, directly behind the Gathering space and next to Pour Taproom. There, a volunteer will be waiting to introduce themselves and walk you through our check-in process. View the map for more details on where check-in is here.

What should I do if my child has food allergies? When checking your child in, just let us know about any allergies. We'll add it to our system so that we have it on file for this time and any times in the future.
What kind of activities will my child be participating in? City Kids will provide age-appropriate activities for all children. For newborns and small children, they'll be cared for and prayed over by a City Kids volunteer. Lessons for older kids are reinforced by play and activities designed with the ability and age of the child in mind.
