Parent/Child Dedication is a time of public and personal commitment, where parents make a promise to teach their kids about building a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We want kids to learn to be lifelong followers of Jesus. That's why we’ve created a weekend experience designed especially for our littlest attenders. Each weekend, your child will get the opportunity to play, hear a Bible story, connect with kids their own age, and be encouraged by adult leaders to make wise decisions. They’ll have fun, feel safe, and learn about God in a way that they'll understand.
If you’re a new family interested in checking out our kids program this weekend, let us know! We can’t wait to meet you!
When you arrive at one of our campuses, look for the Kids Check-In area. A staff or volunteer will be there to answer any questions you may have, help you get checked in, and find the right room for your child.
All Kids volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before they start volunteering—so know that your kids are in safe hands. We show your kids that church is a safe place where they will be cared for by adults they can trust.
In Kid-O-Deo, we teach kids in groups based on their age and divide them into two areas:
We help even our youngest kids become familiar with Bible stories and learn about Jesus' love for them. We provide kids with a place where they feel safe and cared for and can begin to learn how to trust God and others.
Preschool kids enjoy large group learning and group time discussion. In large group, kids get to sing songs and meet some of our favorite characters, like Ranger Ron and Rocky, who help them learn more about how God wants us to live. In group time, they meet with other kids their own age and are guided in fun activities and discussion with their group.
Have you ever seen a fossil? It’s a rock, made from something that lived thousands of years ago. In this series, we’ll be digging up some stories of how people followed God thousands of years in the past. Join us as we discover artifacts, cross deserts, and see why the rules God gives us are important, even three thousand years later!
Hi, Kid-Os! I'm Ranger Ron. I am a forest ranger—that means I take care of my forest friends and their homes. I love to live God’s way, and teach you Kid-O’s to do the same. Each week, I get to teach you the Big Idea. Check out the most recent one above from our current series!
Every week, we'll take some time to practice a memory verse together so you can learn more about the Bible. Check out the video above to see most recent verse that we're working on memorizing!
We go to great lengths to make sure your child is safe with us. Every weekend at Kids Check-In, your family is assigned a random, three-digit alpha-numeric code that is on the child’s name tag and your security tag. This same code will be displayed in the auditorium in the event that your child needs you. You will use your security tag to pick up your child in Kid-O-Deo after the service.
Your child is joined by incredible volunteers who want to ensure that each boy and girl has a fantastic experience in Kid-O-Deo. All of our volunteers have been trained and screened with background checks to verify their level of quality and character.
If a child is being treated with antibiotics, he/she should be on the drug for at least 24 hours before coming to Kid-O-Deo.
If a child has continually clear runny nose or rash due to non-contagious allergies, please let us know.
