Raising up 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!

Come join us for Sunday morning Kid's Church on-location during the 9:30am service!

Register for Kids' Church Here!

Due to Covid, we are asking that families please register for all Kid's ministry classes. At this time, we are accepting registration on a monthly basis. Please, fill out the forms below if your child is likely to attend any of the classes in January.

Registration must be submitted PRIOR to the FIRST SUNDAY of every month. Registration closes at 8pm the Saturday before. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

*Please note: at this time we CANNOT accept walk-ins/guests.

Nursery, Preschool & Kindergarten

Kids 6 months- Kindergarten will head straight to their classes after signing in at the Gateway Desk in the foyer.  Please be aware that Kids ages 2+ must wear a mask, according to our government guidelines.  We are doing our very best to create a space for your kids to connect with other and with God.

Grades 1-5

After signing in at the Gateway Desk in the foyer, Kids in grades 1-5 will go into the auditorium for the first three songs of worship.  After the third song, they can make their way down to the Gateway Kids room.

Grades 5 &6

This fall we launched a group for just the Gr. 5-6 kids! Thursday nights, from 6:30-8:00pm we meet together for awesome games, connection, and a devo time!

It's a great opportunity for your kids to be mentored by Jesus-loving leaders and grow in relationships with their peers. It's also a great place for them to invite their friends.

It will run from September - June with a break over Christmas.

We will be following COVID guidelines to keep your kids safe.
UPDATE as of January 8, 2021:
World Changers will be meeting over zoom for the foreseeable future, rather than meeting in person.  We will continue with a short devotional and engaging games.
