On Sundays

Child Registration & Check-in

Welcome! We have two areas where we register the children for their classes depending on their ages.

In Front of the Auditorium

If your child is nursery or toddler-aged (0-4 or before Pre-K), we start registration in front of the auditorium at the Children’s Registration table at 9:45am. The children join the parents in the adult worship service until they are dismissed during the announcements segment. If you come after 1o:25am or after the children’s dismissal, please bring your child straight to his/her classroom and we will register him/her there.









In Front of the Large Group Room (C113)

If your child is in Pre-K through 5th grade, you can register and then drop them off for Large Group (C113) by 10am. After large group, they will proceed to their small groups.

Class Map for May


We value the safety of all our children so as you register your child, please show your family care card ID or if you are new/visiting, you will be given a colored identification wristband that will correlate with the number given to your child(ren). You will need to show this card (or wristband) in order to pick-up your child from his/her classroom. If your child needs you during service, the family card ID # or the wristband number will light up on the screen during service.

family card sample

The number flashed on screen should look like this: (3 or 4 digit #)-C112. The first digits are the family card ID # or wristband # and the dash and letters following is the location of the classroom.

For more information, visit Children’s Ministry.

Middle School (6th – 8th Graders)

There is a class for middle school age youth that meets in the lobby for Bible study. The kids will attend part of the adult worship service with their parents and then during the greeting time, they will be dismissed to go to class.

For more information, visit Youth Group.

God’s Garden Policies & Procedures

Please review our Well Child Policy for Sunday Worship. Every child attending Sunday school will need to have a filled out child care registration card. You may download, print, and fill out the form in advance, or fill it out at the Children’s Ministry registration table on Sunday. Children graduate to the next class at our annual Fall Kick Off in September.


Pre-School Playdates

We will re-start our regularly scheduled playdates for pre-school aged (and below) children in different people’s homes, or on a nice day we will even meet at a park or at the zoo in 2015. If you would like to sign-up and/or host a playgroup please fill out this form or for more information contact
