FRIENDSHIP KIDS TAKES PLACE DURING 10:45AM GATHERING ONLY
Your kids will love Friendship! During our 10:45am gathering, we provide Christ-like love and gospel-centered teaching to kids in age-specific classes and groups. All classes and groups are led by caring adults and teens in a safe, secure environment. We want your kids to learn about Jesus, feel loved, and have fun! The ultimate goal of our ministry is not to entertain or provide childcare; rather, it is to come alongside you as partners in discipling your kids to know, love, and follow Jesus. We use the Bible, activities, videos, and songs to engage their hearts & minds with the truth of the gospel.
Kids Discipleship Groups
Our Elementary kids gather in what we call Kids Discipleship Groups. These groups are divided by age/grade and gender. In 2023, we are discipling our kids using the New City Catechism. A catechism is simply a question-and-answer style of learning.

Your first visit
Here's what to expect when visiting Friendship Kids for the first time:
The easiest way to find your way is to stop by our New Here tent outside the front doors of the church (or one of the tables directly inside, if inclement weather). One of our Serve Team members will have you fill out a Connection Card along with your child's information (listed below). You will then be escorted back to our Kids Wing to check your child in.
Our Kids Wing is located on the right side of our church building. Enter the church through the front doors, walk straight into the Auditorium, and head to the front right side of the room through the double doors. Immediately inside is our Check-in area. Here we will enter your child's information into our system, then one of our Serve Team members will lead you and your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
Please note: If you Plan A Visit, you can pre-register your kids to expedite the check-in process for your family!
How check-in works
Before Service: On your first visit, we will check you in. After your first visit, you can check-in your child at one of our self check-in kiosks. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, one of our Serve team members or leaders will text you. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately to our Kids Wing, and look for a Serve team member who will direct you to your child’s room.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
