Kids Ministry at The Gathering
Nursery to Grade 5
What can you expect at Kids Gathering?
A safe environment, friendly, trained and caring workers, strong teaching from the Bible, and a fun time! The Kids Gathering is an opportunity for kids to hear and be changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ and make great friendships.
We offer four classes in the Kids Gathering:
Nursery - 0-2 years old
Toddler - 2yrs-JK
We understand that safety is a top priority for families. It is a top priority in the Kids Gathering as well. We implement several processes to ensure that Sunday morning are as safe as possible:
All adult workers must obtain a police clearance before they can serve in the Kids Gathering;
All workers must complete an application, complete required training elements, provide references, and be interviewed by a staff member;
We have designated security volunteers who patrol the Kids Gathering during the service;
All kids are checked in through a secure computer software system and parents/guardians receive a parent label to use in the check out process;
All classes have at least two workers present; and
We utilize a paging system to notify parents/guardians of any incident needing their attention
Our Sunday morning teaching times for our Kids Gathering classes (Toddlers, Sk -Grade 2 and Grade 3-5), draw from Lifeway's The Gospel Project for Kids Curriculum.
The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.

Masks and Sanitizing
We are no longer requiring kids or workers to wear a mask. We will respect each family's decision in this matter. We continue to clean and sanitize regularly in order to create as safe an environment as possible for kids to learn about Jesus!
