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!

Sunday Morning Kid's Ministry

Welcome to the Gateway Kid's Basecamp!  Upon arrival, please sign your children in at the Gateway Desk in the Foyer.  
After receiving name and guardian tags, the kids can join the main service for the first 3 worship songs. A slide will be displayed on the screen to indicate when the kids are dismissed to their classes.  

Please find more information about our classes and their locations below.

The Gr 6-8 small group meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.
Please note: students are in the main service for all of worship and then will meet in the upper room for small group. They are not dismissed with the younger kids part way through worship.


Grade 5 and 6 are critical years in a child's life, but they can also be challenging years. As preteens, they are starting to feel too old for kids ministry, but aren't quite ready for youth ministry either. Meeting kids in the midst of that tension is the heart behind World Changers!

As this program has taken shape, we've noticed that healthy relationships are key to kids thriving while they navigate the journey from childhood to youth. Our goal is to equip preteens with practical tools, so they can grow healthy relationships with peers, mentors and the Lord through games, activities, and intentional conversations.

We meet every Thursday evening from 6:30-8:00pm in the youth room at Gateway Family Church.
