Kids Ministry Classes

Gathering Kids is open to all children from birth to 5th grade on Sundays during each worship service.

In Gathering Kids, your children will engage in creative, open-ended play, learn developmentally-appropriate Bible stories, participate in dynamic games and classroom activities, and develop meaningful and lasting friendships.

What to Expect


You will complete a basic information card at our New Family desk. We will ask for the following personal information: family members’ names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs, etc.) for your child. 

Want to register before you arrive? Click here to complete your information card online!
You and your child will each receive a sticker with a unique security code on it. This will allow us to securely and safely connect you after the service. After registering and receiving your stickers, a volunteer will lead you and your child to their age-appropriate room and introduce them to their teacher.


Here at The Gathering, the safety of children is our highest priority. 
We have several policies in place that ensure every child who enters our care will have a safe and positive experience. These include:
  • Biennial background checks for all kids volunteers
  • Secure check-out system
  • Annual Safe Sanctuary training for all kids volunteers
  • Safe bathroom policies and procedures
  • Positive, trauma-informed classroom structures

What will my kids learn?

We utilize stories and passages from the Bible to teach our kids 6 foundational truths:
  1.  God made me.
  2.  God loves me.
  3.  Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
  4.  I can trust God no matter what.
  5.  I need to make wise choices.
  6.  I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

    These truths are taught in fun and developmentally-appropriate ways with the support of interactive videos, group games, worship songs, and small group discussions. More than anything, we hope our kids walk away knowing how deeply they are loved by God.
