We believe that each child is important to God. Whether we encounter them in the neighborhood or in our building, we desire to provide a safe + engaging environment to show them the good news.

Romans 12:16, Galatians 6:10


We want an atmosphere of tangible love at good news kids. We encourage volunteers to be kind to the children, to redirect when needed + to bring restoration gently. We desire to partner with your families to grow kids in faith + character.

John 13:35, Galatians 6:1


Good News Kids will teach the stories of scripture, memorize God’s word + apply the truth to the children’s lives at an age appropriate level through hands-on activities + conversations.

1 Timothy 4:12, 2 Timothy 2:15


We strive to have a team and atmosphere that exudes the joy and abundant love of Christ.

John 10:10, Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

check-in process

We desire for the check-in process to be smooth + safe for each family.  The dedicated Good News Kids entrance is the side entrance off the parking lot. Please utilize those doors each week for check-in.  You can choose to pre-register here or at the top of the stairs you will find a volunteer who can input your information.  After your first visit, you can utilize the self check-in tablets to enter your phone number and print your child(ren)’s tags.  For a touch-free experience, you can download the church center app + connect with Good News in the Neighborhood; a barcode can be generated to scan at the kiosk for your child’s tags. 


For children Kindergarten-5th grade: they will participate in worship, teaching and fun downstairs! 

For children who are Infants-Preschool: we offer two rooms upstairs.  The first room is for children birth-2.5 years old.  The second room is for preschool children ages 2.5 – 5 years old.  These children will play, worship and learn an age appropriate lesson.

When service ends we would like for you to take advantage of the door that is to the front right of the sanctuary to exit in order to pick up your kids.  Please come through the sanctuary and pick up your children where you checked them in.  We look forward to ministering to your child(ren)!
