Raising kids who know God and look like Jesus

Our ministries focus on building relationship with friends and mentors, and most importantly, with God. We believe there is as much of God available to kids as there is available to adults and that is reflected in our ministries. We engage with God through times of prayer, worship, understanding His Word, and of course, a ton of fun! Whatever your child's age, you can be sure they will find a home in the Gateway Family!

EVENTS

Sunday Morning

We offer something for all ages on a Sunday Morning! All kids must first be "Checked In" at our Gateway Desk. First time visitors and new families will be asked to take few moments to register their kids. Kids will get a label name tag and then will join their parents for the first 3 worship songs in the main auditorium.

All kids will be dismissed from the auditorium when the "Kids Dismissal" slide goes up. The kids ministries provided on Sunday morning are located downstairs.
There is a nursing mom’s room located in the sanctuary.

Nursery (6 - 23 months) We are happy to receive your little ones after the 3rd worship song.  When you signed your little one in (in the foyer) you will have received a pager to keep you connected should your child need you during the service.  

Preschool (24 months - 3 years) Register and sign in your child before this point in the foyer, and receive a name tag and pager to keep you connected with your child. Remember to take your child to the bathroom before hand as we will be paging you for any toileting needs.

Age 4 - Gr. 1 Kids in this class meet in the blue room in the basement. Make sure all your kids are signed in and have a label name tag before coming downstairs. Leaders will confirm their attendance once they are in the room. Remember to bring your "Guardian" Label with you when you pick up your kids directly after the service closes.  

Gr. 2 - Gr. 5 Kids in this class meet in the youth room in the basement.  Make sure all your kids are signed in and have a label name tag before coming downstairs. Leaders will confirm their attendance once they are in the room. Remember to bring your "Guardian" Label with you when you pick up your kids directly after the service closes.  

Gr. 6 - Gr. 8 Preteens have their own separate class in the Green room (located in the main office) each Sunday Morning except for the first Sunday each month. That Sunday is designated for these students to be in the main service in order to transition them into the next stage of being part of the body of Christ. Preteens must also be signed in before coming to class!
Whatever your child's age, you can be sure they will find a home in the Gateway Family!
